Industry: Luxury Items
Favorite book involving royalty: Cinder by Marissa Meyer has royalty with a conscience. Plus, it’s based on a fairy tale, what more do you want?
Industry: Masonry and Weapons
Favorite book on war: World War Z by Max Brooks is an amazing re-imagining of a future world, one ravaged by a third world war, World War Z. Zombies have never looked so terrifying and world building has never been as amazingly detailed and nuanced. I’ve actually reviewed the film + book as well!
Industry: Electronics and Technology
Favorite science fiction book: I don’t like a lot of sci-fi but I guess Warm Bodies would take the cake, another zombie flick told in an imaginative and romantic way.
Favorite beach read (however you define one!): Ugh, I dislike reading on the beach! Maybe it’s because of the type of beaches we have at home, but if I had to read something on the beach I’d want it to be light and fluffy and fun, so maybe a fun fantasy book: The Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris.
Favorite book involving superhuman / supernatural characters: I have way too many loves in this category, but the first one to catch my eye when browsing my GR shelf is Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. I’ve also reviewed it.
Industry: Transportation and Healing
Favorite road-trip / self-discovery book: OK so my choice isn’t a road trip book, I don’t read those, no. But the one I’ve chosen, I think, counts as self-discovery? Looking for Alaska by John Green.
Industry: Lumber and Wood
Favorite book with a wilderness / dystopian setting: Ohh, so many to choose from! I want to keep this list diverse, instead of listing the same books all of the time but I’d go with Fire by from the Graceling Realm!
Industry: Fabrics and Textiles
Favorite book cover: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (such a good cover, especially when you realise the girl is levitating).
Favorite under-hyped book: Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde. I haven’t heard much hype about this but I thought it was brilliant, so more props to this! I hope he hurries up and finishes the rest…
Favorite book involving animals (werewolves and shapeshifters count!): I don’t read a lot of books about animals, and, I am not sure when I last read a werewolf oriented book, so I’d have to say, City of Bones (the series is a bust, I will admit this but werewolves aren’t so bad here… don’t judge me) by Cassandra Clare.
Industry: Farming and Agriculture
Favorite fictional setting: Ummm, dude the Harry Potter world, nuff said. I have to get to Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley.
Industry: Coal Mining
Rock solid favorite (from concluded series): Can I put Harry Potter again? The Harry Potter series and Huger Games series, oh and LOTR series (+ The Hobbit) are my favourites. So, if I have to choose just one then, I’d say The Hobbit.
Central seat of government
Favorite book with a political agenda: Divergent by Veronica Roth, something that I have in agreement with Flip The Page. Divergent is an amazing book with obvious political leanings, and it’s wonderful and nuanced. The Hunger Games was second for me here.
District 1: Cashmere and Gloss
Favorite fictional siblings: Fred And George Weasley from the Harry Potter series. May their memory live on forever!
District 2: Cato
Favorite bad-boy character: Can I give a Bad-Girl? Cause I dislike bad-boy’s, so I’m going to be gender-neutral and just say bad-character. Well, Meda from Cracked by Eliza Crewe, hands fricken’ down!
District 3: Beetee and Wiress
District 4: Finnick Odair
Favorite swoon-worthy hero: So my pick is a bit of an anti-heroine, but I’d choose Elphaba from Wicked by Gregory MacGuire, I remember thinking, I’d definitely have a crush on the protagonist if she were real, green skin and all.
District 5: Foxface
Favorite mysterious character: Thomas Kelly from Blood of the Lamb by Sam Cabot.
District 6: The Morphlings
Favorite secondary character: Cinna from The Hunger Games, he moves things along in quiet ways.
District 7: Johanna Mason
District 11: Rue
Favorite fictional kid: Annebeth from the Percy Jackson series. She’s smart, flawed and kicks butt.
District 12: Peeta Mellark and Katniss Everdeen
Favorite fictional couple: Err, I tend not to pay attention to couples, so this one is quite hard, but I’d have to say Joan of Arc and Comte de Saint-Germain from the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel.
The Capitol: President Snow
Favorite villain (to kill): Monsieur Bernard de Cressac from Strands of Bronze and Gold. My GOSH I was happy when he finally died!
So I cheated a bit and tried to get a diversity going, but I only chose books I enjoyed! I’d love to see what everyone else came up with, and remember to link back to Flip That Page.
