The Brooklyn-99 Book Tag | Tag Thursday

Thank you to Marshmallow Harmonies for putting it on my radar, and thank you to Between the Pages for creating the tag! Their posts are linked so you guys can go check out their content, too!

Okay, so Brooklyn-99 is my FAVORITE contemporary comedy show. I love it so much, I can’t wait for new episodes to air again. I just love the whole cast and the writing is so, so funny! It makes me laugh and it cheers me up when I’m down. I was so excited to see this tag and I really hope you guys enjoy my answers!

Anyway, to the tag!

Jake Peralta: A Character Who Lives to Be the Hero


Percy Jackson.

I’m picking Percy for this because he always seems to be the one to charge head-long into danger in order to save the day, even without a good plan, sometimes.

He’s still lovable, like Jake, but can sometimes be a bit foolhardy. I think he and Jake have many similarities (both “get the girl,” at least!), and I’m always rooting for them at the end of the day.

Amy Santiago: A Character Who Empowers You

Elizabeth Bennet.

I can’t think of very many characters who have spoken to me so directly as Elizabeth. I love how she stands her ground and refuses to marry someone unless she loves them. I love her relationship with her sister Jane. I love that she won’t back down to those in a higher class than her, because she knows her worth.

She’s just really awesome and I hope I’m even the tiniest bit like her.

Captain Holt: A Book with Good Representation

This Time Will Be Different by Misa Sugiura.

This book definitely sticks out to me when considering books that represent for quite a few minorities. One of the main focuses of the book is racial representation and appropriation. There’s a whole subplot with the main character trying to assist her best girlfriend find a new girlfriend, and the “love interest” is bisexual. So, a lot going on. I enjoyed the book and I like recommending it wherever possible.

Rosa Diaz: A Badass Female Character You’d Hate to Mess With

June Iparis.

Like Marshmallow Harmonies, I also have to go with June from Legend. She reminds me a lot of Rosa – she’s martially skilled, she knows how to take lead, and she also has her vulnerable moments (like with her family). She’s so strong physically, but she’s also just a strong person, in general. She is ready to fight for what she believes in, and she’s also willing to change her stance if it’s wrong.

Charles Boyle: An Awkward But Lovable Character

Neville Longbottom.

I have always thought of Neville as that one friend who you know is super, super loyal, but can be pretty awkward. Neville definitely grows into a leader, but for a good long while, he’s the kid who might get picked on or bullied. He’s like Charles in that once he finds his friends he feels comfortable and does everything he can to be helpful to them. I have a soft spot for him, and Charles.

Terry Jeffords: The Big Guy Who Looks Tough with a Big Heart

Matthias Helvar

My favorite of all the Six of Crows gang. He’s definitely the “muscle” but as we see in the books, he has a soft side to him. It might take a bit to get to it or for him to feel comfortable showing it, but once you know it’s there, you know that Matthias will always have your back.

He’s so awesome and I love him and I will cry if I say anything more.

Gina Linetti: A Book or Series on Your TBR with a Massive Fanbase

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

I know I’m definitely late to the game on this one. Ever since I started blogging, I’ve come to realize that the Book Blogging sphere loves this series, and most books by this duo or Kristoff in general!

I am looking forward to reading this series, I just need to make time for it. It’s pretty hefty! I am hoping that it lives up to the hype.

Scully & Hitchcock: An Iconic Fictional Duo

Zoe Webster & Phillip Digby

I think it’s kind of hard for book characters to become iconic unless they’re from the classics…but I’ve chosen the next best thing. What came to mind first was Sherlock Holmes and Watson, so I’ve picked a duo that kind of fit that mold. I love the Trouble is a Friend of Mine series, and Digby definitely gives of Sherlock-y vibes. Zoe, though the main character, sort of gets swept up under Digby’s crime-solving, harebrained schemes.

The Pontiac Bandit: The Antagonist You Can’t Help But Love


It’s kind of hard making a demon an lovable antagonist, but…Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman really know how to make it look effortless! One of the best things about Good Omens is Crowley (speaking of, I loved the TV series!).

He’s grumpy, he does “bad” things and does his best to be “tough!” But in the end, he’s just a plant parent who’s best friends with an Angel. ‘Nuff said.

And finally:

Cheddar: A (Animal) Sidekick You Adore


I don’t know why, but I really took a shine to Mogget. Sabriel is one of my favorite fantasy books, part of the Old Kingdom series by Garth Nix. Mogget is technically not an animal, but takes the form of one when he is bound by a collar. I think I like him because he’s generally sassy and grumpy, and reluctantly helps Sabriel. I guess I like that “reluctant, but helpful” archetype, I don’t know.

Thoughts & Thanks

Whew! We did it! What an awesome tag! I love Brooklyn-99. It brings me joy, and so I am so happy that someone made a tag for it! If you love B-99 like I do, let’s chat in the comments? What did you think of my selections? Who’s your favorite character on the show? Let me know!

Though I like participating in tags, I’m bad at tagging people. My favorite thing is just to say, if you’ve read this post and like it, please consider yourself tagged! And please link back to me so I can check out your post!

As always, thank you for visiting and happy reading!
