“You’re Not Good Enough!” Book Tag

Marina @ Books of Magic just did this tag, and it looked like so much fun! Plus it’s been way too long since I’ve done a tag. So let’s do this!



Pick 30 fictional characters and write their names down. You then pluck two names by random at a time to answer one of the 15 questions and select the character that fits the criteria the best and so determine which character is not ‘good enough’ and relegate them to Fictional Character Therapy to work on their crushed self-esteem.



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

Peter Pan (Peter Pan) vs. Dorian Gray (The Picture of Dorian Gray)

I feel like Peter probably wouldn’t be the best teammate for a spelling bee considering he’s been living on some remote island as an eternal child for like, ever, sooooo I’m gonna go with Dorian for this one.

Not good enough: Peter Pan ✨

2. Both characters want to kill you. Which one would you kill first so you have a better chance of surviving?

Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock Holmes books) vs. Dr. Moreau (The Island of Dr. Moreau)

Well first off, I feel like Sherlock would have poisoned me so inconspicuously and so far in advance that I’d be dead before I could make this decision. But assuming that’s not the case… I feel like Sherlock would only do quick, painless killings (cause let’s be honest, he wouldn’t be one to enjoy dragging it out), whereas Dr. Moreau would literally tear me apart and sew weird animal parts onto me, sooooo I’d say Moreau would have to go first.

Not good enough: Sherlock Holmes 🕵️

3. You’re on The Bachelor/Bachelorette and you’re down to these two characters. Which one are you going to give your rose to?

Frankenstein’s monster (Frankenstein) vs. Gwin (Inkheart)

Frankenstein’s monster, hands. down. I LOVE HIM SO MUCH. He’s just a misunderstood sweetheart and all he wants is to be loved! Plus, I honestly just tossed Gwin in here cause he has a pet ferret.

Not good enough: Gwin 🐭

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

Dr. Victor Frankenstein (Frankenstein) vs. Merricat Blackwood (We Have Always Lived in the Castle)

Victor Frankenstein is a TOTAL self-obsessed twat, so there’s no way he’d volunteer for me. Merricat so would, though. It’s weird that I feel like she’d make a nice friend. Despite… you know…

Not good enough: Dr. Victor Frankenstein 🧟‍♂️

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

Snow White’s evil step-mother (Snow White) vs. Princess Leia (Star Wars books)

Though I do love my villains, I’d need Leia — for company and for survival. So, sorry but buh-bye, evil queen!

Not good enough: Princess Leia 🌌

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

Ursula Monkton (The Ocean at the End of the Universe) vs. Don Quixote (Don Quixote)

This is… actually a pretty tough one. Ursula Monkton is technically a villain, but idk, she’s pretty powerful. But Don Quixote would be such a lovable sidekick. And he’s got so much spunk! Although he is technically insane, so there’s that. I think I’d go with Ursula… and just hope she stays on my team.

Not good enough: Don Quixote 🤺

7. You’re a manager of an avocado admiring company. Who would you fire for lack of communication skills?

Wolf (The 10th Kingdom) vs. the raptors from Jurassic Park

Ya know, oddly enough, I’m gonna go with Wolf on this one, despite how much I love him. Those raptors are hella advanced in their communication skills! If they’re selling to other raptors, at least.

Not good enough: Raptors 🦖

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

Pippin Took (The Lord of the Rings) vs. Lady Macbeth (Macbeth)

Pippin 1000%. Lady Macbeth wouldn’t be bothered about that. She’d be too busy obsessing over who she’s gotta kill next to gain power. Pippin would just act silly or suggest some slightly dangerous but fun thing to do to get my mind off of it.

Not good enough: Lady Macbeth 🗡️

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

Gregor Samsa (Metamorphosis) vs. Captain Hook (Peter Pan)

Captain Hook, totally. Gregor is much more homebody-like, and Hook seems stubborn enough to win over the popular kids if he really wanted to.

Not good enough: Gregor Samsa 🐞

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

Remus Lupin (Harry Potter series) vs. Peeta Mellark (The Hunger Games)

Oh damn, neither of them! Ahhh, idk, maybe Peeta if he was distracted with Katniss or something. I feel like Lupin absolutely wouldn’t forget, though. Unless it was a full moon…

Not good enough: Peeta Mellark 🥖

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

Eowyn (The Lord of the Rings) vs. the guy Sam-I-Am is trying to convince to eat green eggs and ham (Green Eggs and Ham)

I could totally see Eowyn becoming a feminist BookTuber and spreading the word about all her favorite feminist books!

Not good enough: The guy from Green Eggs and Ham 🍳

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

Sirius Black (Harry Potter series) vs. Patrick Bateman (American Psycho)

Bahahahaha, I’m gonna go with Sirius. I’d rather not risk being murdered in my sleep with Bateman over. Plus Sirius would be so fun to hang out with!

Not good enough: Patrick Bateman 🔪

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

Dr. John Watson (Sherlock Holmes books) vs. Dr. Jekyll (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde)

I’d certainly hope it was Watson! Jekyll would be an alright candidate if he wasn’t doing crazy behavior-altering experiments all the time. Watson seems much more… prioritized.

Not good enough: Dr. Jekyll 👨‍🔬

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

Iago (Othello) vs. Hamlet (Hamlet)

…Honestly, I have to say Hamlet. Iago’s a 100% villain, but idk, I feel like Hamlet is so passive-aggressive and dramatic, he’d do something like that.

Not good enough: Iago 🐦

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

Annie Wilkes (Misery) vs. Mr. Hyde (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde)

OH MY GOD, NEITHER OF THEM, PLEASE! Jesus! I have to choose between two psychotic murderers?! Excellent… Well, Annie Wilkes would probably take pretty good care of me… until I wanted to move out. Hyde would give zero shits about caring for me and probably just want to murder me or something. So… Annie? Oh god.


Not good enough: Mr. Hyde 💢


I tag…

Everyone who’s reading this! This was a super fun tag — probably my favorite one so far! 😀

  1. Ah I do love this tag! I love your answers as well! I adore Wolf from the 10th Kingdom and think I would want to keep him around just because he would make the day more interesting! I mean, he would also make my job a lot harder but it would be more interesting!


    1. Hahaha, that one was a tough decision cause I just love Wolf so much! I’m surprised I don’t know more people who’ve seen T10K, but I wish I did! It’s legitimately one of my favorite things of all time ❤

      1. I actually have a copy of the book based on the show (which I think can’t be bought anywhere now) because I adored the show so much. I need to buy it on DVD and re-watch because I still think it is one of the most wonderful things I’ve watched!


      2. Me too! I haven’t read it yet, but I obviously had to own it for future readings. Yesssss. I know it was on Netflix for a while. Not sure if it is anymore. For the longest time, I only had a VHS recording my dad made for me when it aired, complete with commercial breaks and all, haha.

      3. Ooooh, I’ll have to check Netflix to see if its still on there! I hope it is. Ha! We had the VHS as well and I kept wearing it out because I rewound all my favourite bits! They were thinking of a second series at one point but it never materialised which is a shame 😦 I think it was too expensive and didn’t have the high viewing figures they were expecting which just astounds me!


      4. Whaaaat!!! Aw I wish they would’ve made it. Yeah I only just recently started hearing about other people who’ve even heard of it. For the longest time I only had one friend in middle school who knew about it, and we would talk about how great Wolf was all the time and cover our binders with pics of him we printed off the internet, hahaha. It’s so gooooood, though. I’ve been telling my bf we need to have a marathon and watch it in one day cause he’s never seen it.

      5. Snap! It was me plus one friend that watched it and luckily she enjoyed it just as much as me! I keep telling my hubby to be that we need to watch it as I think he’d love it! I really need to re- watch it now as all this talking about it has me reminiscing!
