The Perfect Book Tag

I found this tag on Marie’s blog Drizzle & Hurricane Books! It was originally created by the amazing Sofii @ A Book. A Thought. It is such a fun idea, and I loved the sound of the book that she came up with. I just had to try it for myself. I tag everyone reading this to try it. I am so curious to know what your perfect book would look like!

THE PERFECT GENRE

What genre would your perfect book be?

My gut reaction is historical fiction because I always say that it is my favourite genre, but the books I have been loving lately have all been contemporary/literary fiction– so, I have to go with that! There is so much that you can be done within the genre and they can really hit close to home, which is something that I love finding in books.

THE PERFECT SETTING

Because every story needs the perfect setting

This is so tough! There are so many settings that I love but if I had to choose I would say the English countryside. There is something so calming yet mysterious about the English countryside. I love when the setting itself is a character and I have read many books where I got that feeling from a countryside in England.

THE PERFECT MAIN CHARACTER

Because every book needs that brave and amazing MC

I love when a main character keeps her cards close to her chest. There is an edge of mystery about her and you never quite know what she is thinking. She is someone who the reader nor the side characters can quite figure out.

THE PERFECT BEST FRIEND

Because we always love that character who supports our MC, no matter what

The best friend probably wouldn’t be of the human variety, but would be a cat! Is there anything better in a book than a feline sidekick? I don’t think so!

THE PERFECT LOVE INTEREST

Although not all stories need it, we all love a bit of romance

To be honest with you, my perfect novel would not have a romance.

THE PERFECT VILLAIN

Because even when sometime we hate them, we always need them

Because this is a contemporary/literary novel there probably wouldn’t be your traditional villain. I think in my perfect book the villain would probably be the main character’s own thoughts and her past. They would be holding her back and it would be something she would need to work through.

THE PERFECT FAMILY

Our book wouldn’t be the same without that unconditional support from the MC’s family

I think my perfect novel is adult and there probably would not be a lot of family around. The MC’s family would be her chosen family of friends.

THE PERFECT ANIMAL OR PET

Because we all need a good loyal companion

The aforementioned cat best friend!

THE PERFECT PLOT TWIST

“OMG, how I didn’t see that coming!”

I love subtle plot twists where things are slowly revealed over time. Something like when it is revealed that the narrator is telling you her story from jail and that there were many hints throughout that alluded to this.

THE PERFECT TROPE

Because we all have a trope we can’t get enough of

I said my perfect book wouldn’t have any romance but all of my favourite tropes are found in romance novels!!! Ahhhh…. maybe the unreliable narrator? I know that it bothers some people but if done well I love it.

THE PERFECT COVER

Because we all love a good, beautiful and artistic cover

Something bright with lots of flowers. Even if it has nothing to do with the story inside, I do not care! They are just so pretty!

THE PERFECT ENDING

Because every great adventure has an ending

Don’t hate me, but I love when a book has an open ending. I think it is so interesting when the end is left open to interpretation. It definitely makes for amazing discussions and debates with other readers!

I would be curious to know if my ideal books would be something you would read? I know my tastes can be pretty particular!

  1. Ahh I’m so glad you did this tag – it’s such a fun one! 🙂 I’m also happy to see you’d like no romance in your perfect book. If I’m a marshmallow and I love my romances, I also feel like we NEED way more books WITHOUT romance, because not every book needs one! 🙂

  2. I would love to read your perfect book – sounds awesome. I understand about the romance thing, I think some books put to much emphasis on the idea of a perfect love interest. Love this tag, hopefully will get to do this on my blog. Although I have to say my perfect animal or pet would have to be a dog!

  3. It makes me SO happy you made the tag, sweetie!!!, I LOVE your answers 😊
    I love that you said that your novel wouldn’t have romance, I think it’s very refreshing and I also enjoyed open endings, as long as they’re well done, I think they can be very satisfying
    And I would totally read your novel, like yesterday 😍
    I hope you have an INCREDIBLE weekend 💕
