paper stars picks #1

Hi everyone! So, as most of you probably know from reading some of my other posts, I have a friend over at Paper Worlds and Swirls of Ink. We've been wanting to do some more posts together lately, so we came up with the idea to do joint posts sort of whenever we feel like it.

The series that we've just started is entitled Paper Stars Picks, which is when we pick six categories and each answer three on our respective blogs. You can check out the first half of this first installment over on her blog, here. So! Here is my half of the first installment of Paper Stars Picks.

Which protagonist would you be? 

Violet: Kestrel from The Winner's Curse. Kestrel is super smart and resourceful, and also I'd get to wear an awesome gown like the one she wears on the cover! or (sorry I'm picking two but I can't choose!) Cress from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. To be honest, any of the girls from the Lunar Chronicles are awesome protagonists, but I really enjoyed reading about Cress's character and hanging out with everyone in that group would be a lot of fun!

Sunny: Tessa Gray from The Infernal Devices trilogy. She loves books and is clever and kind, three things that I think are super important in a personality. Also, it doesn't hurt that she has both Will Herondale and Jem Carstairs to choose from... I seriously love Tessa though, above and beyond her choice in men. 

Significant Other you'd like to date? 

Violet: Morpheus from the Splintered series by A. G. Howard. Yes, he is still my favorite book boyfriend. I don't think this has changed since I've been blogging. Love Morpheus :) 

Sunny: Paul Markov from A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray. He is a brilliant scientist and a little socially awkward, which just makes him so much cuter. He also throws his entire self into anything that he sees worth doing, which I find so endearing. 

Which YA trope would you like to live out? 

Violet: ordinary girl meets extraordinary world. I would love to explore a new fantasy world and discover an incredible adventure, while still having my normal life. Think Meghan Chase from the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa, or Alyssa from Splintered by A. G. Howard, or Percy Jackson from the Percy Jackson series. 

Sunny: the "omg I'm what?" trope where the main character is unaware of his or her involvement in the magical, supernatural or royalty. See: Clary Fray from the Mortal Instruments, Elara from The Princess in the Opal Mask, and Alex from the Covenant series. This is a little similar to Violet's pick, but it doesn't necessarily open a new world to the character in question, just changes their involvement in their own one. 
So thank you to Violet for guest starring over here on Stardust Words! Let us know what your picks would be in the comments :)
