The Disney Book Tag!

Yay for book tags! Today I’m doing the Disney Book Tag created by Katytastic over on Youtube! I loved the idea behind the questions so I thought it’d be fun to participate!

 

1. The Little Mermaid – a character who is out of their element, a “fish out of water”

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Cinder was definitely a little odd to me, and she’s the reason for this whole ‘cinderella twist’. But I LOOOOVE her. She’s badass and amazing and absolutely brilliant. This fish belongs outside the water, because she’s unique and definitely different from other characters.

2. Cinderella – a character who goes through a major transformation

The Selection by: Kiera Cass

Okay, America may have been a little annoying in The Selection, but she’s definitely grown on me as the series progresses! Some people might’ve seen her as a bratty character even until the end of the series, but I can see how she develops as the main protagonist and it’s been a lot of fun getting to know her!

3. Snow White – a book with an eclectic cast of characters

A Court of Mist and Fury by: Sarah J. Maas

17927395.jpg

Lots of cool new characters were introduced in the second installment of the ACOTAR series! Normally it would be hard for me to keep up with a handful amount of names, but I enjoyed getting to know each and everyone of them! The author crafts some of the most amazing characters!

4. Sleeping Beauty – a book that put you to sleep

Delirium by: Lauren Oliver

11614718 (1).jpg

There were loads of books that lulled me to sleep, but I simply could not stand Delirium. Imagine this: Reading a painfully slow-paced book under the fluffiest quilts and blankets. A recipe for a good night’s sleep, I think?

5. The Lion King – a character who had something traumatic happen to them in childhood

Wolf by Wolf by: Ryan Graudin

24807186.jpg

“Yael, a former death camp prisoner, has witnessed too much suffering, and the five wolves tattooed on her arm are a constant reminder of the loved ones she lost”

I cry for Yael everytime /sobs. She’s gone through so much, but it’s made her such a strong person. She’s also become one of my favorite badass characters ever!

6. Beauty and the Beast – A beast of a book (a big book) that you were intimidated by, but found the story to be beautiful

Illuminae by: Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

23395680.jpg

Ah yes, the over-hyped ‘titanic in space’ opera. It’s 599 pages long (hardcover). But the pages are filled with codings, illustrations, text messages, and files. So I guess it isn’t that big of a book? It is intimidating though. The first few pages were just meh. After a couple hundred, you’ll be like oh wow holy cow, and soon you’ll be flying through those pages screaming internally and possibly externally. Read it, please?

7. Aladdin – a character who gets their wish granted, for better or worse

Rebel of The Sands by: Alwyn Hamilton

24934065.jpg

Okay can we talk about the fact that the question is Aladdin related and the book I picked happens to reflect it?

Amani wishes to flee her hometown, but she can’t do it without the help of a companion. Luckily, she meets a mysterious boy in a shooting contest and decides to escape with him. Then again, running away from home isn’t always a good idea, right? Amani encounters mystical creatures and danger on her way and has to fight through it all.

8. Mulan – a character who pretends to be someone or something they are not

The Iron King by: Julie Kagawa

6644117.jpg

This book doesn’t really answer the question in a sense but it kinda does..? One of the character pretends to be someone they’re not to protect the life of his best friend from a dangerous secret *cue dramatic music* but his identity is revealed after a few chapters so all is good.

9. Toy Story – a book with characters you wish would come to life

Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone by: J.K. Rowling

3.jpg

The golden trio has it all – brains, guts, and humor. Who wouldn’t want to hangout with them?? I’d love for Harry, Ron and Hermione to come to life!

10. Disney Descendants – your favorite villain or morally ambiguous character

Dorothy Must Die by: Danielle M. Paige

18053060.jpg

Yes, this is a twisted Wizard of Oz inspired YA novel that is all sorts of EPICNESS. Dorothy is the main villain of the story and she’s pure evil, I love it! I can’t bring myself to hate her in any way, which is really impressive because I always have this hatred feeling towards every antagonist I come across – but not Dorothy. She’s a sassy and powerful drama queen that literally spices up the story.
