A while back I was looking for some cool book tags when I came upon a couple ones. I put them all in my drafts and then completely forgot about them. Until now, obviously. So yeah, I have no idea where these tags came from or who originally created them (if you do know, please let me know), but I’m going to fill in the Disney Princess Book Tag!
Snow White: Your favourite Classic
Yeah, well honestly I don’t like classics. But if I had to pick one, I’d go for The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, which is possibly the only classic I’ve thoroughly enjoyed. Partly I guess because it’s a children’s book ánd it takes place in Middle Earth, which I love very much.
Cinderella: A book that kept you reading well past your bedtime
I don’t really have a specific bedtime, to be honest, but the last book that kept me up way too late was Gone Without a Trace by Mary Torjussen because it was very thrilling near the end and I needed to know how it ended.
Aurora: Your favourite (classic) romance
The one romance I am still rooting for after all these years is Romione; Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. I was so happy when I realised they were becoming a thing and I still love them so so much. (Yes I know I’m supposed to talk about a book, not a pairing, just let me talk about my favourite ship ok?!)
Ariel: A book about making sacrifices and fighting for your dreams
At the moment I can only think of Allegiant by Veronica Roth, where the main character made the ultimate sacrifice. And of course, Rogue One is a story where everyone made sacrifices in order to save the galaxy and I am still so so sad.
Belle: A book with a smart and independent female character
Well, The Lunar Chronicles is full of amazing, strong and independent women. I love Cinder, Scarlet, Cress and Winter. And Iko of course, and Michelle Benoit and basically just any female character that isn’t Levana or Pearl or Adri.
Jasmine: A book with a character who challenged social conventions in his/her world
Isn’t that like a norm for any dystopian book? To be honest, I can’t think of any specific character for this question, so I’m just going to go for the basic dystopian main character.
Pocahontas: A book whose ending was a rollercoaster of emotions
Allegiant, Crooked Kingdom, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Mockingjay to name a few. All books where I cried so hard I had actual tears streaming from my eyes. When I actually needed to put the book down because I couldn’t read any further because I was sobbing. Yeah. (Technically the sobs didn’t come the first time I read Mockingjay, but only upon rereading it a second time).
Mulan: A book with a kick-ass female character
Ms Marvel is a pretty kick-ass female character. Both Carol Danvers and Kamala Khan, I love both of them so much. They are amazing characters, they save the world and be home in time for dinner.
Tiana: A book featuring a hardworking self-made character
I am literally confused by this question, honestly. Right now the only character I can think of is not a character from a book at all, but I am still going to mention her because I love her more than anything. It’s Peggy Carter. Obviously. Who else?
Rapunzel: A book that features an artist
Peeta Mellark from The Hunger Games is a great artist. His paintings from the arena, the cakes he makes, I wish they added more of that side of Peeta in the movies, that’s the only thing I really missed about them, to be honest.
Merida: A book that features a mother/daughter relationship
The most recent book that I read that had a great mother/daughter relationship was The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli. I loved Molly’s family and her mums and yeah I just love it when a book features a character who has a good relationship with their parents. Often authors neglect those types of relationships, which I personally think are more important than romantic relationships.
Anna & Elsa: A book that features a great relationship between siblings
In Angelfall by Susan Ee, Penryn would literally do anything for her younger sister Paige. That love is tested in the sequel, World After, but eventually, Penryn realises that deep down inside, Paige is still Paige – her little sister who just needs to be loved. I loved that, honestly.
That concludes this Disney book tag, I really liked it though I had to really think about some of the questions very hard.
