royalty book tag

For today’s Summer Blogger Promo Tour, Melissa from the Reader and the Chef and I created a Royalty Book Tag together! I’ve never created a tag before, so it was super fun to do. I’m over on her blog today with my answers for the tag, so you should definitely check that out too. But here we go with a short intro to the tag:

The Royalty Book Tag was created by Carlisa at Confessions of Carlisa and Melissa at the Reader and the Chef—two book bloggers who love reading and love swoony princes.

And now here are Melissa’s answers to the tag!:


His Royal Highness: A book that rules over all the books

Stolen Songbird and the whole Malediction Trilogy by Danielle L. Jensen. The world that the author created is so rich and fantastical, extremely creative, that I don’t know if I’ll ever stop praising it. I just love it so and I would pick it over any YA book out there (HP doesn’t count, that one is untouchable).

The Regal Queen: A book with elegant writing that left a strong impression

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh. This book is so beautifully written. It’s graceful and fitting to the storyline. Had the author not written it the way she did, I feel that it wouldn’t have made that much of an impact because the story comes to life thanks to the lyrical prose in its pages.

Evil King/Queen: A book or series with a great villain that you loved to hate

Again, I have to mention the Malediction Trilogy because I LOVED to hate King Thibault. And later on came to love. This character is amazing and seriously messes up with your mind. ♥

The Brooding Prince: A book boyfriend that left you swooning

My beloved prince Ash from The Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa. It’s been YEARS since I first met him, and part of my heart still beats and aches for him. He’s the reason why I love brooding princes so darn much!

The Fierce Princess: A book or series with a kick-butt leading lady

I absolutely adore and admire Wilhelmina from The Orphan Queen. This princess/queen has a hundred of identities, she forges handwriting, has magic & knows her way with weapons. Flipping amazing, I tell yah!

The Duke of Secrets: A book that made you wait until the sequel to learn the truth

When it comes to horrible cliffys, I’d say Fire Falling by Elise Kova. THAT ENDING KILLED ME. Seriously, I spent all night crying. And it was torture to wait for Earth’s End.

Captain of the Royal Guard: A book or series where you shipped the secondary character instead of the main love interest

This is not a fantasy book, but I totally shipped a different ship when reading Summer of Supernovas by Darcy Woods. But did my ship sail? NOPE, IT DID NOT. *cries*

Honorary mention, Chaol from Throne of Glass. I still ship him, y’all!

The Court Jester: A book that made you laugh out loud

Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging is the funniest book I’ve ever read. I cried tears of laughter when I was reading it in some stairs at my college. Some peeps even thought I was mad. Such a glorious book. Not Fantasy, but heck, is it a good ice breaker when you finish a heartbreaking book.
