Hey friends! Confession time: I have never been into Marvel movies. When Endgame was released, I’d only seen a couple Marvel movies (and seen none in theaters), didn’t get the hype, and frankly didn’t care.
So a looooong time ago, when The Orangutan Librarian tagged me in the Marvel Avengers Book Tag, I ignored it.
But then! I felt so behind since everyone in the world was talking about Endgame and I missed out on the hype! Walking around my high school, it seemed the only thing anyone was doing was raving about it. Also when we watched Infinity War in class and it was the second Marvel movie I’d ever seen, I was insanely confused (especially because I ditched class one of the days we were watching it so I only saw 2/3 of it), spoiled for everything (including Endgame thanks @the jerk who yelled “xx doesn’t die in this one, xx dies in Endgame!”) but intrigued. So I took it upon myself to catch myself up and crawl out at least a little bit from the rock I live under and start watching the Marvel movies!
Anyways, it was my summer mission to get caught up! So as of now, I’ve seen 10 of them (thank you very much to the library that has free movies in addition to books!!! library appreciation from your resident library user ❤ ). Overall, I enjoyed some of them, but I still wouldn’t consider myself the hugest MCU fan. I really enjoyed Spiderman: Homecoming (probably because Tom Holland is the actual cutest aoisdjfksadf), I was really bored by and disliked The Avengers and Captain America: The First Avenger, and, of course, I absolutely loved and had my heart ripped out and destroyed by Infinity War and Endgame.
So in conclusion, I’m glad that I got caught up on the cultural phenomenon because it was getting lonely living under my rock. I’ll probably see a few of the ones they release in coming years (excited for Black Widow!), not a diehard fan, but not living under the gigantic rock I was used to.
But anyways, there’s my long winded nobody cares introduction. Now that I’ve gotten myself relatively caught up
not really but shh, I remembered this old tag and decided to pull it out and finally do it!
Iron Man // A Book That Made You Laugh Out Loud
My Lady Jane // There are a lot of funny books, but very few in which I actually laughed out loud. Well, this was one of those few! There were so many jokes and I was cracking up all the way through it!
Captain America // A Book That Sends A Positive Message
Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda // This book is so wonderful and sends such positive messages with it’s incredible representation–lgbtq+ as well as other types such as body positivity, poc representation, Jewish characters…
Thor // A Book With A Character’s Strength You Admire
Inej from Six of Crows // Inej is one of the strongest characters ever! Life has dealt her such a hard hand, and she’s been put in these horrible situations at such a young age, but she keeps fighting, keeps her determination, and won’t be broken as she works together with her squad!
Black Widow // A Book With A Kick Ass Female Protagonist
Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles // There are so many good options! Cinder is definitely amazing–just an ordinary girl going to the moon and leading a revolution against an evil queen is all!
Hulk // A Book That Made You Incredibly Angry
Sweet Black Waves // This book was so bad I hated it and I was so angry because the main character got herself into so many dangerous near death situations and just refused to die. Like I hate you please go die already.
Hawkeye // An Underrated Book You Think More People Should Pay Attention To
Wendy Darling // It seems that nobody knows this book series exists and that’s such a shame! I adore all three books, especially book two is one of my all time favorite books! I love the dark take on Neverland and Peter Pan!
*Bonus* Loki // A Book With A Twist Or Surprise That Tricked You
The Cruel Prince // I can’t even say that this book had a twist that surprised me; it was more like the last hundred pages or so were so twisty that I was surprised by a twist and then surprised by another twist and then another one… rinse and repeat…
Well, after a looong time, there’s my tag! I’m not going to tag anyone since I was tagged in this soooooo loooooong ago, but if it interests you, feel free to participate 🙂
