Nina Better Be Plus-Sized: a books with fantastic fat rep
There’s Something about Sweetie is really special because it has desi fat rep that is done excellently, and made me very happy as well as emotional. Sweetie is the person I wish I could be coz she is so confident in her own body and exudes optimism.
Malina Are Not My OTP: a book where you couldn’t get behind the romance
This is probably going to be a pretty unpopular opinion but the one very fan favorite couple I can’t get behind is Jude and Cardan from The Wicked King. I just find it pretty toxic and I’m not sure what the author can do in the last book to convince me otherwise.
“The Darkling Isn’t Dead”: a book where you connected with the villain
Well, no one can beat the Darkling. But a recent one I kinda found interesting and am very excited to see what happens next with him is Hakaimono from Soul of the Sword.
Don’t You Dare White Wash: a book-to-movie/TV show adaptation where the character’s ethinicity was respected
Even though the fat rep wasn’t on point, I think the ethnicity of most characters was pretty consistent with the book in Love, Simon.
The King of Scars: a book by a beloved author that you’re excited about
I’ve loved all the books I’ve read by Bennett but Foundryside is a particular favorite. And I’m too excited for Shorefall but the wait till 2020 is excrutiating.
Inej and Kaz: fancast your faves
I’m pretty unfamiliar with actors or models who aren’t from India, so I don’t think I can fancast for any of these beloved characters properly.
No Mourners, No Funerals: a book quote that has stuck with you
There are many excellent quotes that I loved in The Shadow Glass, but one that struck me as quite relevant to all of us is –
You can’t honor the past if you don’t know what the past is. I would much rather know the truth than live in ignorant bliss, even if it destroys all I’ve come to believe. Tradition isn’t always honorable.
