#Booktube Talk | The Captain America Book Tag

Hey, hey, fellow bookworms, friends and Marvel superhero fangirls (and boys!). Today’s post is perfect for anyone who can never overgush about a certain superhero named Steve Rogers aka Captain America. (He's even shown up on my "fictional crushes" list - exhibit A, exhibit B!)

So, until earlier this year, I didn’t know this tag was a thing. When I finally did see it, I was overexcited and knew it would need to be a feature tag on Finding Wonderland’s booktube channel. Well, it took me a long time to put it all together – like, I filmed it months ago, but finally, it’s here. (The perfect timing too, considering Avengers: Infinity War opens this weekend.)

As is the usual “rules,” the entire tag is not below. I’ve split it up again and filmed part of the Q’s on said booktube channel and below I answer the rest of the Q’s.

Let’s get to combining books with a favorite: Captain America!!

The Captain America Book Tag Questions

Peggy Carter: a book with a strong female protagonist | There are lots of women who are strong protagonists. Women like Sofi Snow (The Evaporation of Sofi Snow) or Emika Chen (Warcross) are two who’d fit. But if I’m sticking with a theme and Peggy’s era, I’d go with the women in Sarah Sundin’s WWII novels. So many amazing characters in those stories, and strength comes in many different forms and ways. It doesn’t always have to be physical – sometimes the greater strength in an emotional experience.

Howling Commandos: a book with squad goals | Can I just use The Avengers as squad goals?? I mean, I know I only know them from the cinematic storytelling world, but technically, they first appear in books! Please, introduce me to your favorite bookish squads.
Natasha Romanoff: a book with a snarky side character | I feel like Isaac from The Fault in our Stars fits this prompt. It’s been a while since I read the book though so I could be 100% off. Remind me, does he fit the “snarky” label or am I’m thinking of someone else?

Winter Soldier: a book with a great twist (plot twist or retelling) | The recently released Olivia Twist (authored by Lorie Langdon) is a creative re-telling of the Dickens’ classic Oliver Twist.

I’m Just A Kid from Brooklyn: a book with a memorable setting/character backstory | Help! I cannot think of one for this prompt. What stories have you read that fit this question? *continues to think* 

You’ve Been Asleep, Cap: a book you love with a dual timeline/time travel | The Doon series (co-authored by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon) is a fun time travel series, and I’m super curious about Cold Summer by Gwen Cole.

I Had A Date: a book with a cliffhanger | If I Run, which is written by Terri Blackstock.

I Understood That Reference: a book with a pop culture reference | The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck has a lot of fun cultural references, but the ultimate culture reference show I’ve seen is Gilmore Girls.

Q’s answered on Booktube:

Steve Rogers/Captain America: a book with a big character transformation

Bucky Barnes: a book with your ultimate BROTP

Red Skull: a book with a cliché plot

Sam Wilson: a book with a friendship meet cute

Do You Two…. Fondue?: a book with a love triangle

Til The End Of The Line: a book with the OTP to end all OTPs

Here ends the Captain America Book Tag; kudos to the creator for such a fun (fun) tag. If you’ve put together this tag, leave your blog post link (or video) below. I’d be glad to come by and see your post (video) and see your answers.

Thank you for visiting Finding Wonderland


  1. I LOVE this tag! I just might have to join in some time soon.
    As for the memorable settings prompt..... Katherine Reay's books come to mind, especialyy The Austen Escape and A Portrait of Emily Price.

    I'm nervous and excited about Infinity War!!!Ah I know it will be #allthefeels and I will probably leave happy/mad about things.... but still. This is what we've been anticipating for so long!

    1. YES! Pleas do. I was going to tag some people, but as usual, I was editing/putting the finishing touches on everything LAST minute (*story of my life*) so that's one thing I skipped. :)

      YESYESYES! How could I not think of Katherine's books? So many beautiful settings.

      Same. In all likelihood I'll see it on DVD, but I've already read spoilers. ;)

      ...hope YOU enjoy, Courntey.

  2. Great tag! What fun! :)

  3. Oooh what a fun and timely tag, since I just saw Infinity War (and am SO not over it yet)! Emika's definitely a strong heroine. As for bookish squads, the Percy Jackson characters will always be my #1 pick for this! ♥

    - Aimee @ Aimee, Always

    1. UH-OH. I hope not being over it also translates to some GOOD revelations. :)

      Emika IS indeed a strong heroine - I really liked Warcross too. I've never read Percy Jackson, but from what I know, I see them being a great bookish squad. :)

      Thanks for visiting Aimee!!

  4. Awesomeness. I'm seeing Infinity War tomorrow and Cap BETTER be okay lol. He's probably my fave Avenger, I think Chris Evans just makes him work. Him and Thor and Wanda... I like those three probs the most.

    Emika was awesome, I can't wait for the Wrcross sequel.

    1. Right?! He'd best be!!

      I really like Wanda too. Especially the more I see her in this Avenger world - and of course, Thor is also a favorite. Hope you liked the movie, Greg. :)

      YES she is. Like you, I too cannot wait for that sequel. It sounds promising so far!!

      Thanks so much for visiting.
