Hello, my lovely little followers and what I hope to be my soon-to-be-lovely-little-followers!
So, the awesome Silanur from AloofBooks tagged me in this swankified tag, and because of my intense, undying, and quite possibly creepy love for both Disney and books, I decided to do this tag right away!
1. The Little Mermaid – a character who is out of their element, a “fish out of water”
For this, I must choose Cather Avery of Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Being quite the socially challenged introvert, she definitely struggles in college.
2. Cinderella – a character who goes through a major transformation
Of course, I have to choose the ultimate transformation, Juliette from the Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi. Juliette starts out as this annoying, whiny brat, and transforms into—well, you’ll just have to read and see!
3. Snow White – a book with an eclectic cast of characters
4. Sleeping Beauty – a book that put you to sleep
So, Silanur (the blogger who tagged me, in case you have short term memory loss like a certain Disney sidekick fish) will hate me for this, but I will have to say The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater. Though I loved the writing style, I barely made it through the first book, and couldn’t even finish the second.
5. The Lion King – a character who had something traumatic happen to them in childhood
So, we’re going to go with Kahlid from The Wrath and The Dawn by Renée Ahdieh, which I happen to currently be reading. It’s tragic, it’s traumatic, and you’ll have to read the book to find out what happened.
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
I think I was in 4th grade when I picked up a very sizable book by the name of Little Women. Though scary, I began reading anyway and it didn’t take very long to fall in love with the story and characters.
7. Aladdin – a character who gets their wish granted, for better or worse
8. Mulan – a character who pretends to be someone or something they are not
9. Toy Story – a book with characters you wish would come to life
10. Disney Descendants – your favorite villain or morally ambiguous character
*SPOILER FOR SHADOW AND BONE* The Darkling from the Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. I mean, come on. Who else could I choose? I’m still convinced he’s really a good character and it’s all an illusion
Well, that’s it! I hope you enjoyed that lovely little tag!
I officially tag any blogger with the word “book” in their blog title. And even if you don’t, go ahead and give this tag a try!
