My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.
I am incredibly sorry for how late this post is going up. I only decided what topic I was doing about five minutes ago and I am doing the first one I found on the WordPress Reader.
So thanks to Rachel @ Stuck in a Good Book for the inspiration.
I hope I do the tag justice!

(A character who is out of their element, a fish-out-of-water)
I can’t immediately think of a character who is out of their element. I’m racking my brain trying to think of books and all the characters I think of have actually adapted really well to their situation.
After a lot of brain racking I came up with:
from Firth Chronicles series by Shami Stovall
(A Character who goes through major transformations)
I haven’t finished this series … yet. I promise the I will eventually. But of what I’ve read so far, this character goes through a lot of transformations.
from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas
(A book or series with an eclectic cast of characters)
The very first books that came to mind are
Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer
(A book that put you to sleep)
I’ve answered this question before in other tags, but I tend to listen to audiobooks before I go to sleep so I fall asleep to a lot of audiobooks. This has absolutely no reflection on the book, just my tiredness.
My most recent one is:
Angels and Demons by Dan Brown
(A character who had something traumatic happen to them in childhood)
Omigosh, I could list so many characters for this, including all the characters I’ve mentioned so far.
Do I have to choose one character for this?
Beauty and the Beast
(A beast of a book that you were intimidated by, but found the story to be beautiful)
I was so intimidated by the Discovery of Witches books. They were so big and when I sat down to read them I really struggled with the first few pages and I thought I wouldn’t finish it but I really enjoyed it the more I got into it.
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
(A character who gets their wish granted, for better or worse)
My first thought when I saw this question was Katerina Bishop from the Heist Society series. She got her wish. She got into the brilliant school, she got her normal life … but not for long.
from Heist Society series by Ally Carter
(A character who pretends to be someone they’re not)
My first thought to this is Aelin … again.
(A book with characters you wish would come to life and be real)
I wish all book characters would come to life … that or I could go and live in their worlds.
(Your favourite morally ambiguous character)
I saw Rachel’s answer and I am stealing theirs. Unlike Rachel though, I haven’t read the book, but I have seen Wicked twice. Once in London and Once in Manchester. It may be one of my favourite musicals
Elphaba is definitely one of my favourite characters. She is so good and all her actions are twisted against her because of the colour of her skin.
