Captain Marvel Book Tag

Today I’m here with the Captain Marvel Book Tag! Thanks so much to Marta @ The Book Mermaid for tagging me!! Even though I’m a huge Marvel fan, I’m also horrible at staying up to date with movies and TV shows… so I haven’t exactly seen Captain Marvel yet. *Gasp!* I know, I’m very behind on the times. However, these questions seem easy enough to answer without having seen the movie, so let’s give it a go!

  • Thank the person who tagged you!
  • Make sure to tag the creator (The Awkward Book Blogger) so she can see your responses!
  • Tag at least three people!
  • Have fun!

CAPTAIN MARVEL – WHICH CHARACTER WOULD YOU PHOTON-BLAST?

General Woundwort in Watership Down by Richard Adams. What an evil rabbit!! Even his name is unpleasant, which I feel like is always a sign (never trust those icky alliterative names). Did I mention he’s also the dictator of a rabbit cult? The worst.

NICK FURY – GENRE/SERIES/BOOK YOU DIDN’T KNOW EXISTED BUT WISHED YOU DISCOVERED EARLIER?

Although I knew it existed when I was younger, I wish I had read A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket when I was a kid instead of when I was twenty-one years old. Don’t get me wrong, I greatly enjoyed it when I read it abroad; however, I feel like Young Holly would have had an even better experience reading it in her prime.

KREE – A TEAM THAT WOULD FIGHT TOGETHER AND DIE TOGETHER?

Sherlock and Watson in Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Even though they may get on each other’s nerves at times and see the world very differently, this dynamic duo always looks out for one another when times get tough. You know what they say: opposites attract!

SKRULLS – FAVORITE SHAPESHIFTING CHARACTER?

Does Professor McGonagall count? When I read this prompt I immediately pictured her transforming into a cat, the embodiment of independence, cleverness, and wisdom in both human and animal form. She’ll forever be one of my very favorite Harry Potter characters!

SUPREME INTELLIGENCE – WHICH AUTHOR (DEAD OR ALIVE) THAT YOU LOVE/RESPECT WOULD YOU SEE WHEN YOU VISIT THE SUPREME INTELLIGENCE?

I would pay money to be a fly on the wall of Virginia Woolf’s brain! Her life is fascinating to read about and her writing is just brilliant–I can only imagine how thought-provoking a conversation with her would have been!

FLERKEN – MISGUIDING BOOK COVER?

When I first saw the cover of Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel, I figured it was a book about some sort of camping community or festival where things go awry at night. Anyone who has read Station Eleven knows that the reality is very, very different!

FIGHTER JET – WHAT SWEET RIDE (FICTIONAL) WOULD YOU LOVE TO HAVE?

I’d love to take a ride in the time machine in Timeline by Michael Crichton–provided that it actually brings me back in one piece!

PAGER – IN THE TIME OF NEED, WHICH CHARACTER WOULD YOU CALL TO SAVE YOU/THE UNIVERSE?

Definitely Westley in The Princess Bride by William Goldman!! So clever! And agile! And talented! And kind! And attractive…

  1. Thanks so much for answering, I loved reading your post! You have to watch Captain Marvel now, it’s just so good ❤ I wish I had remembered of McGonagall when writing my own answers, that was brilliant! I've only read A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf, but I'd love to check out some more of her works – do you recommend any? 🙂

    1. Thanks, Marta!! I can’t wait to watch Captain Marvel! 🙂 Omg Virginia Woolf has written SO MANY fantastic novels. My favorites so far are Mrs. Dalloway, To the Lighthouse, and Between the Acts. Hope you enjoy! ❤

  2. I went into Captain Marvel knowing nothing (tbh I think the promotion for the movie is really lacking) but it was sooo good! It’s an instant favorite for me. I think both Skrulls and Flerken applies to McGonagall, I always find it hilarious how intimidating she is as a witch but cute when transforming into a fluffy cat! 😀

    1. I completely agree about there being a lack of promotion for Captain Marvel!! There’s been so much hype for other movies but I felt like I barely heard anything about her movie before it came out :/

  3. Ooh, this is a fun tag, especially considering how much I enjoyed Captain Marvel–seen it three times already. I have added this tag to my list of to-do tags.

    Great answers, and I agree with others, McGonagall totally counts, though I thought of Tonks first.

      1. Yep, the first time to just overall geek out at a new superhero movie, the second time to critique the film and catch things we missed because of geeking out, and the third time after it was released on DVD because it is tradition to watch our new DVDs shortly after we get them.
