Yearbook Hall of Fame Book Tag!

Hi guys! Today I have a book tag that I have to say I haven't seen a lot on YouTube and on blogs. I thought it was pretty fun though and so today, I'm doing the Yearbook Hall of Fame Book Tag. This tag was created by one of my favorite BookTubers, Kat from the channel Katytastic, and you can check out her original tag video here
This tag is designed in the same way a regular Yearbook works. Basically, you have several categories for which you're supposed to vote for your favorite students or, as in this case, your favorite characters. So here are the fictional characters I voted for in these categories:

The Categories

Best Dressed


Isabelle Lightwood from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. Izzy is basically a fashion Goddess. Not only does she possess uncanny fashion sense that puts even main character Clary pitifully to shame, but Izzy is also able to rock the highest of heels while fighting demons all over town. Now that takes some serious talent. 

Best Eyes


I'm going with another TMI character and that is Magnus Bane. Magnus is the High Warlock of Brooklyn, making him one of the most powerful characters in Cassandra Clare's universe. The reason he's my pick for this category though is because he has catlike eyes. Literally. And that beats your regular blues and greens anytime. 

Best Hair


Daenerys Targeryen from A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. Daenerys, like most princes and princesses born from the ancient House Targaryen, is described as having silver hair and violet eyes. In fact, her hair even earns her the title Silver Queen at some point. Not only is her hair color unique in itself, but it's also evocative of her ancestry and marks her as the last Targaryen. 

Best Couple


Eleanor and Park from the book by the same name by Rainbow Rowell. Eleanor is shy, wears mismatched clothes, is plump and has unruly curly red hair. Park is half-Asian, skinny for his age and dresses mostly in black to try to play it cool so that other kids at school won't pick on him. These two are very different and come from entirely different worlds. And yet, as they accidentally come to share a seat on the school bus everyday, they unexpectedly discover a mutual love for comics and music that leads then to slowly become friends, and then, much, much more. These two share one of the sweetest romances I've come across in books and that's why I just had to pick them for this category.  

Class Clown


Leo Valdez from the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan. Leo is a demigod and the son of Greek God Hephaestus, which means that he has special skills with mechanics and machinery. Yet, you wouldn't know he's a genius with machines by his laid-back, 'class clown' attitude. His jokes often fall flat, but he definitely adds to the good humor of the demigod crew he travels with to fulfill quests. 

Biggest Flirt

Captain Thorne from the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. If you've read the books, you probably already know this but Captain Thorne is the ultimate flirt. He's your old fashioned, rogue captain with an eye for the ladies and you can't help but love him for it. 

Most Dramatic


Tiger Lily from the book by the same name by Jodi Lynn Anderson. Anderson's Tiger Lily is nothing like the Disney character you're probably more familiar with. She's a huntress, both stoic and fierce, and always stays a little aloof from the people around her. She's a bit of a mystery for her fellow tribesmen and the loss, heartbreak and hurdles scattered throughout her life also serve to make her a fierce but dramatic character. 

Most Musical


Cress from the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. Cress is Meyer's version of Rapunzel and much like in the original tale, Cress grew up locked away in an isolated prison. She has thus learnt, over the years, to keep herself company though several ways including singing. And judging by the reactions of the other characters, it's clear that Cress is actually very good at singing. 

Most Likely To Succeed


The Baudelaire orphans from A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. I'm halfway through the series and while I'm not really a big fan of it because of the endless repetitive elements, I have to admit that the Baudelaire siblings are pretty resourceful. Violet, the eldest, is a gifted inventor. Her brother, Klaus, is very intelligent and their infant sister, Sunny, is hinted at being way smarter than babies of her age. Despite the countless attempts made by their enemies to hurt them and steal the huge inheritance left for them following their parents' deaths, they always manage to escape and outwit the bad guys. So, for their resourcefulness only, I have to pick them for this one. 



Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. I mean who else?! Hermione is a very talented young witch, often shown as being exceptionally bright for her age. And honestly, as special as Harry Potter is, we all secretly know that he would have never made it so far as he did without Hermione at his side.

So that's it for this tag guys. If you want to do it too, feel free to do so and don't forget to link it back to mine and to leave me a link to your post ^^
