1. Reflection “When will my reflection show who I am inside” – An inaccurate book cover that doesn’t really reflect what the book is about.
For this question, I will choose Orange: The Complete Collection cover by Ichigo Takano. The reason is that the cover gives off a cheesy, high school, love triangle vibe, but IT IS SO MUCH MORE than that! I think this is one of the mangas I have read which incorporates a very cool sci-fi element into the story and you do not get that aura from the main cover. Sci-Fi is one of my favorite genres and I absolutely fell in love with the concept of the manga as soon as I picked it up! More importantly, the characters are just so well developed and you can not help but love this group and their friendship. It has become one of my favorite mangas of all time!
2. Mushu – A character with a lot to prove.
A character like Mushu would be Tina, or Porpentina Goldstein, from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. From the beginning of the book we see Tina who has been dismissed as an Auror from the Magical Congress of the United States of America since she was conducting an investigation against the orders of her superiors. She had lost a bit of her confidence because of that but after meeting Newt and helping him recover his missing magical creatures, she grows dynamically with a lot of heart, strength and courage which ultimately helps her gain her confidence back.
3. “I’ll make a man outta you!” – A character who develops the most OR a book with some kick-a** training scenes
I would have to choose Ruby from The Darkest Minds. Her character is just so dynamic that by the end of the book I was beginning to wonder if she was the same person! After being placed in a harsh concentration camp for children who developed abnormal abilities, Ruby is initially very scared but as the plot moves forward, she faces huge obstacles in her path and learns to overcome them, thereby becoming strong emotionally.
4. “A Girl Worth Fighting for” – A ship you will defend till your last breath
Cress/Thorne from the Lunar Chronicles – I adore them. I will defend them forever!!!!!
5. Huns – A book/character that gives you the creeps
A book character who has completely creeped me out would definitely be Queen Levana from the Lunar Chronicles. I mean she was so vain to the point where she was willing to control the minds of people in order to manipulate them into loving her. She not only used her skills to control people but also to punish them as well with their own hands. You do see more of what she does in Stars Above or the collection of novellas from the Lunar Chronicles but urgh . . . it just gives me chills whenever I read those scenes.
6. Mulan – Your favorite bada** female protagonist
Inej is one of my favorite characters in the Six of Crows Duology since she so bold, determined and caring despite having such a rough past life. Not only is she courageous but she also grows to become a skilled fighter with her blades after joining the Dregs. More importantly, she has such great morals and by the end of the book she becomes someone who is willing to fight for justice and others even though she had not been so fortunate. A bada** Character Indeed!
