This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is The Last Ten Books That Gave Me a Book Hangover. I don’t really get book hangovers. Yeah, there are books that blow my mind and I love it so much that I want to reread it immediately, but it doesn’t usually keep me from picking up the next book. So instead, I’m going to do another alphabetical post.

Rules:

  • Credit Alex for the idea, and link back
  • Post at your own pace, do as many or as few letters as you want
  • Post your favourite authors, books and characters (ABCs) for a particular letter of the alphabet

“P” may be have been the easiest letter to come up for all three categories and I actually had to narrow it down to just three each.

Authors

Christopher Paolini: While I have a love-hate relationship with Christopher Paolini’s writing, I am Eragon trash so I’ll count him as a favorite author. Now if only someone would take his writing and make a decent fantasy TV show with it…

The Fork, the Witch, and the Worm

Donita K. Paul: She is a dragon queen and I aspire to be exactly like her when I grow up.

Ashley Poston: She’s a fangirl who was given permission to write books, and I love her. And her books and her Instagram. And just everything. Can we be best friends, please?

Books

Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie: I can’t explain how much I love Peter Pan and the magic and the pirates and fairies and lost boys. It’s all so alluring and brilliant and I wrote an 18-page paper once in college all about it.

Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis: This is one of my favorite Narnia books. Mainly because of Caspian but also because the Pevensies seem like siblings and Aslan showing up to save the day is incredible and Reepicheep and Trumpkin and Trufflehunter and just all of it, okay?

The Princess and the Fangirl by Ashley Poston: I just love the concept of retelling fairy tales in a modern setting and connecting them to Cons and fangirls and fanboys and just… why didn’t think I think of this first? It’s amazing.

Characters

Percy Jackson from Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan: I love Percy so much. I’m so proud of the hero he’s become but I also want to protect him at all costs because so much crazy has happened to him. Yo, monsters, leave him alone!

Pippin from The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien: Who doesn’t love Pippin and all of his shenanigans?

Puck Connolly from The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater: I aspire to be as sassy and stubborn as Puck Connolly. She’s my hero.
