The Friends Book Tag
Ross: Seems harmless, but problematic – Name a book you had problems with
(I don’t think Ross was problematic, I just think he was a complete wuss and manboy who needed to be beaten up a couple of times to toughen him up.)
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I can’t even write how much Harry annoyed me by the end of the series. If he had died, I would have been happy.
Monica: neat and tidy – Name a book/series that ends satisfyingly
The Gods Return by David Drake. I started my review with “A VERY satisfying ending”. Can’t ask much more than that, right?
Chandler: funny and relatable – Name a firm fave
Han Solo’s Revenge by Brian Daley. Before the Star Wars Expanded Universe, there were standalone stories about some of the characters. Solo had his own trilogy. I read it in middle school or highschool and liked it so much that later in life I tracked down the hardcovers for the trilogy and paid a premium for them. The almost completely orange cover is what I actually remember most about the library paperback I read all those years ago.
Phoebe: reliable and friendly – An author you always rely on
Neal Asher. Period. Even when a character is barfing and pooping in WAY MORE DETAIL than I ever wanted, I can rely on him for an action packed story that grabs me and won’t let go.
Rachel: she grows on you over time – Name a book/series that’s grown on you over time
The Monster Hunter International series by Larry Correia. I enjoyed the first book but ripped into it pretty good in the review. And now, I am actively looking forward to the next book, book 9.
Joey: looks good on the outside – A book whose cover is better than its contents
Department 19. The cover looked awesome with all the guns, knives, helmets and weapons. Inside was a morass of teen stupidity and the purest drivel that I’ve read in a long time. The author should stick a turkey on their head in penance!
Gunther: always there, always ignored – A book you’ve had on your TBR forever
(I had to go look up who Gunther even was! I guess he was the coffee shop owner? Definitely forgettable.)
A Study in Brimstone, the first in the Warlock Holmes series. I’ve been waiting for the series to finish up, but the author seems to be acting like a jackass so I’m not sure when I’ll ever get to this. I WANT to get to it though.
