Bookish Siblings Tag

I saw Lauren @ Always Me do this tag and it definitely interested me, the tag was initially created by Caroline @ Just Another Bookish Blog. It definitely helps that I have three amazing siblings to draw from (and that I have sometimes compared them to fictional characters!) but I also wanted to see Ann's picks so I've dragged her into this tag as well!

1) Your Older Brother
Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)Girl Online (Girl Online, #1)
Clare: This was definitely the easiest one. Kaz from Six of Crows. He reminds me of my brother (the oldest of my brothers though not older than me) and he'd make the perfect protective brother.
Ann: Tom from Girl Online he is very similar to my older brother, we argue a lot but when something happens he would protect me no matter what.

2) Your Younger Brother
The Lord of the Rings (The Lord of the Rings, #1-3)Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Harry Potter, #6)
Clare: Peregrine Took, again he reminds me of my other brother and I get such a younger brother vibe from him. He's both cute and someone to be proud of.
Ann: I feel like my younger brother would be the male version of Luna Lovegood. 

3) Your Sister
Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)Cress (The Lunar Chronicles, #3)
Clare: Cinder. Cinder was actually my nickname for Ann since long before the book came out because she is so Cinderella-like. And it's actually even more true with the Cinder from the book who is a tad more badass than the original.
Ann: Cress. Who is a lot like Clare. We both are like a character from The Lunar Chronicles. 

4) The Popular One
The Wrath and the Dawn (The Wrath and the Dawn, #1)City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)
Clare: Shahrzad from The Wrath & The Dawn, I just feel like everyone loves her.
Ann: Isabelle. I just think she would be the popular one.

5) Parent's Favourite
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)
Clare: Hermione. She's kind, she's clever, she's beautiful, what's not to love?
Ann: Jace. He's strong and would protect anyone. He would definitely be my parents favourite.

6) The Little Rebel
The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)
Clare: Katniss. Definitely a rebel!
Ann: Caelena. She's most definitely a rebel.

7) Your Twin
Cress (The Lunar Chronicles, #3)City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)
Clare: Cress from the Lunar Chronicles.
Ann: I am going for Isabelle from the Mortal Instruments.

8) The One You Can't Stand
Twilight (Twilight, #1)The Last Little Blue Envelope (Little Blue Envelope, #2)
Clare: Bella from Twilight. I have such an odd relationship with them - constant eye rolling mixed with an odd fondness. And that's kind of how I feel about Bella, she annoys me but I am oddly fond of her. 
Ann: Keith from the last little blue envelope. He was just so annoying.

9) The One You Could Prank the World With
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)
Clare: I hate to choose the same as I am pretty sure everyone else who does this tag - but it has to be Fred and George. It just has to be. 
Ann: I have to agree with Clare on this one there is no one better to prank with than Fred and George.

10) The Shy Introvert
Cress (The Lunar Chronicles, #3)Girl Online (Girl Online, #1)
Clare: Me and Cress obviously!
Ann: I struggled with this one but decided to go for Penny from Girl Online.

11) Your Ultimate Book Sibling
What Katy Did (Carr Family, #1)Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)
Clare: Katy from the What Katy Did series - it's the single most influential book on my behaviour. I've tried to be a sister like Katy ever since I read it so I'd love to have her as my sibling.
Ann: My ultimate book sibling would be Hermione, she is awesome. If I didn't have Clare I would want the second best thing which would be Hermione.

12) Your Blogging Sibling
Girl Online (Girl Online, #1)
Clare: It's a cheat but Ann! My co-blogger and real life sister. 
Ann: I am not going to cheat like Clare so I am going to say Penny from Girl Online.

  1. Thanks very much for the shout out and thanks for sharing your link with me. :)

    I like seeing how your answers compare to one another - especially when it comes to characters from The Lunar Chronicles.

    1. I actually started reading the Lunar Chronicles because my nickname for Ann was Cinder and I was intrigued, kinda flattered she put that Cress was like me as well! Thanks for inspiring me to do the tag!

  2. This is such a fun tag! I love it when you can read two different answers , it makes it so interesting!

    1. I was very interested to see what Ann put. I love reading and doing tags but its definitely more fun to compare my answers to Anns!
