You're Not Good Enough Book Tag

Monday, October 23, 2017

This tag was created by ReadLikeWildfire and Beccathebookreviewer, and I grabbed it from Weezie at Weezie's Whimsical Writings. The premise of the tag is this: Write down 30 character names on a individual slips of paper and toss them in a bowl (hat, dish, whatever). For each of the 15 question, select two names. From the two names selected, pick who you would keep and who you would say “You’re not good enough” to! Since we're a team, Jess picked 15 characters and I picked 15 and then I tossed them into a random number generator since I couldn't find a hat big enough to span between Phoenix and Toledo.

1. You only have one more spot on your Spelling Bee team. Who would you pick to complete your team?

Sandor "The Hound" Clegane (A Song of Ice and Fire) vs. Lord Akeldama (Parasol Protectorate)

Jess: Sandor can't even spell 'Lommy' so yell, my chances are not good on this. I love you Ser Not a Knight but you're DOA for this.

Dani: Bless Sandor, you're not good enough. Lord Akeldama is a highly cultured, infinitely old vampire. Sandor, as he's so quick to tell us, is no Ser. There's no contest.

2. Both characters want to kill you, which one do you kill first to have a better chance of surviving?

Patroclus (The Song of Achilles) vs Lady Julia Stuart Beaufort MacKenzie (Code Name Verity)
Dani: My tragic dead bi babes. I'm dead either way, but I'm killing Julie because if I kill Patroclus, I also have Achilles to contend with.

Jess: I love you Julie, but I can get away from Maddie. Like Dani said, there's no way you're surviving Achilles wrath over his cousin. Totally his cousin. In short, cousins.

3. You’re on the bachelor/bachelorette an you’re down to these two characters, which one are you going to give your rose too?

Sansa Stark (A Song of Ice and Fire) vs. Georgia Mason (Newsflesh)
Jess: SANSA FOREVER. No one, ever, is good enough. THAT INCLUDES YOU, JOE JONAS.

Dani: Sorry Georgia, but for spoiler reasons involving canon love interests, you are not good enough.

4. You’ve been chosen for the Hunger Games, who would most likely volunteer in your place?

Melanie (The Girl with All the Gifts) vs. Hermione Granger (Harry Potter)
Dani: Melanie would volunteer. And win.

Jess: Hermione, you are highly logical and v observant but you are just not bloodthirsty enough. Who literally is? Oh right, Melanie.

5. You’re stranded on an island. Which character would you sacrifice to engage in cannibalism?

AIDEN (The Illuminae Files) vs Alanna Trebond (Song of the Lioness)
Jess: Alanna, you had a good run but I would team up with AIDAN to defeat you. No way I am going down to a deranged AI and not-even-Daine.

Dani: I sacrifice myself. AIDEN's not an actual physical entity and Alanna's far better suited to get off the island. Plus I could never take her out.

6. You’re the next DC/Marvel superhero (with your own tv show of course), who is your sidekick?

Starr Carter (The Hate U Give) vs Karou (Daughter of Smoke and Bone)
Dani: Sorry Starr, you're not good enough. Karou has necklaces of magic wishes.

Jess: Sorry Starr, I love your shoes but Karou has the blue hair of my dreams.

7. You’re a manager of an Avocado admiring company, who would you fire for lack of communication skills?

Jonah Griggs (On the Jelicoe Road) vs Sir Samuel Vimes, Duke of Ankh Morpork (Discworld)

Dani: Both of them.

8. You’ve just finished a book in which your favorite character dies, which character is most likely to comfort you?

Sirantha Jax (Sirantha Jax) vs Yukio (The Lotus Wars)
Dani: ...neither of you is good enough

Jess: Yukiko doesn't do emotions and Jax literally runs away from them. This ends in tears and delusional headcanons.

9. Ugh, it’s high school. Who would most likely be part of the popular clique?

Minnow Bly (The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly) vs Flynn Doherty (Last Seen Leaving)
Jess: Neither? Minnow and Flynn would make their own willingly-outcast group. High school is not good enough for them.

Dani: Both of these books are about how Minnow and Flynn don't really fit in, but I guess I'll go with Flynn? He has hands and didn't kill a cult leader, two things which seem very socially ostracizing.

10. The day has arrived; you’re finally a year older! Who would have the nerve to forget your birthday?

Cricket Bell (Lola and the Boy Next Door) vs Hana Donnelly (Gemina)

Dani: Cricket Bell would not only never forget my birthday, he would arrive with a meaningful gift and stay after to clean up.

Jess: HANNA DONNELLY DAMNIT. I even got a Danae Matresco jumpsuit and bitch didn't even show up and compliment it.

11. You’ve just found an upcoming booktube star? Who would most likely be?

Nehemia Ytger (Throne of Glass) vs Mat Cauthon (The Wheel of Time)
Jess: Nehemia would be and excellent motivational coach and maybe makeup tutorial-persion. Mat is not good enough unless he can stab things or make terrible jokes.

Dani: Nehemia would give beautiful, impassioned monologues on upcoming diverse books, but Mat would be hot and make dick jokes, so...

Nehemia, you're not good enough.

12. Sleepover time! Unfortunately you can only invite one person, who would you invite?

Lila Bard (Shades of Magic) vs Numair Salmalin (The Immortals)
Dani: A pirate thief guaranteed to get up to trouble and laughs or my childhood crush?

Lila, sorry boo.

Jess: LILA YOU NEVER EVEN HAD A CHANCE. You are noooot goooood enooooough. Numair, come through.

13. Bam, you’re pregnant. Who’s the father/mother?

Yael (Wolf by Wolf) vs Kiaran (The Falconer)

Dani: Hey Kiaran, heeeey

14. You’ve just written a super important text. Who would ‘see’ it, but not reply?

Inej Ghafa (Six of Crows) vs Ignifex, the Gentle Lord (Cruel Beauty)
Dani: Ignifex has very little use for human affairs, unless they're about making deals for your soul, so
it's probably still Inej.

Jess: bahaha Inej, because she's embarrassed FOR me because I love her too much

15. You’ve just woken up and it’s time for breakfast. Your mum’s been replaced by..who?!

Kaz Brekker (Six of Crows) vs Kaladin Stormblessed (The Stormlight Archive)

Jess: ..... I will be very good at killing people.

Dani: I'm moving out.
