Disney Book Tag

Hello, lovelies! I haven’t posted anything since January….. eech sorry about that. So I’m here to make it up to you by doing a Disney inspired book tag. Who doesn’t love Disney? (lots of people but shhh! I do!)

THE LITTLE MERMAID, a character out of his/her element. (a fish out of water, if you will.)  (or a mermaid out of water? oh well, whatever.)

For this one I’m gonna go with…

Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier. So long story short, the main girl in this book, Gwynith, grows up thinking that her cousin, Charlotte has the time traveling gene in her family(a long line of time travelers). Charlotte learned everything there is to know about it, i.e How to dance the waltz in the 1800s, how to behave at a tea party with Queen Victoria, etc. Whereas Gwen learned nothing, she barely even new about it let alone how to dance the minuet. Anyhow she gets the gift and she has to learn everything. She starts traveling with Gideon another time traveler(I love him so much). But, yeah… fish out of water. 😉

CINDERELLA,  character who goes through a major transformation.

Ready? Ready???

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. Let’s just say she wasn’t always queen….

SNOW WHITE,  a book or series with a eclectic cast of characters

I’m going to have to go with one of my favorite trilogy, which I refer to way too often…

The Darkest Minds trilogy by Alexandra Bracken. Each character is so unique, quirky, and amazing. Each character holds their own and that’s something I absolutely adore about this trilogy. Plus Liam is my baby. 😉

Sleeping Beauty,  a book that put you to sleep.

I’m sorry, but….

Ready Player One by Earnest Cline. ho ho ho hold up, I am not saying that I did not like this book! I loved it! It’s nerdy and quirky and amazing, I’m just saying that it took me like 2 months to get through this book, and it’s only like 300 pages. It just takes a while to get through it. Perfect place for a nappy nap is all I’m saying.

THE LION KING, a character who has something traumatic happen to them in their childhood.

hmm so many to choose from….

Shatter Me trilogy by Tahereh Mafi. I don’t want to spoil anyone, so… yeah.

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, a beast of a book(a big book) that you were intimidated by but you ended up really loving.

I’ll just have to go with the biggest book I’ve ever read which is…

City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare. The last book in the Mortal Instruments series.  So this book is 725 pages long… At first I was intimidated, but when I started reading it I got so sucked in. I finished it in 2 days… it’s bad. 😉

ALADDIN, a character who gets their wish granted, for better or worse

this is really hard actually. uhm I guess…

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi.  Again I don’t want to spoil any of y’alls but… She wanted to get out and then she did, and now she has to live under the never sky. (wow I should totally write things for book covers! haha just kidding)

MULAN,  a character who pretends to be someone or something they are not.

I actually just finished this book so i’m going to go with…

Just one day by Gayle Forman. Main girl, Allyson, meets main boy, Willem, and since she has a bob hair cut and that moment, Willem thinks she looks like Louise brooks so he precedes to call her Lulu. So Allyson pretends to be her for their magical day in Paris. (I hope this doesn’t spoil anything!)

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

This one is so hard!! They’re so many characters were alive and with us. Actually I take that back I wanna go to their world! Anyway here goes… Don’t judge me.

All the Shadowhunter books by Cassandra Clare!! They are all beautiful and in depth characters and I love them all and I just want them in my life. I wanna be friends with them, and become a Shadowhunter so just come into our world already!

Disney Descendants, your favorite villain or morally ambiguous character. 

If this spoils anything for you then… You didn’t hear it from me… haha but seriously I’m sorry.

Dimitri Belikov from Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. Yeah… I love him. But him being evil is freaky.

Anyway, that’s all folks!

Winter Wonderland book tag

“Baby it’s cold… Baby it’s cold outside! ” 

So today where I live it’s pretty freaking cold out. It’s the kind of day where you just want a Snuggie and to watch movies/read books all day…. Or blog because you’re insane (like me!).  I’m gonna to do the Winter Wonderland tag, even if it’s not winter yet. It feels like it!

What book is so happy and sweet that it warms your heart?

I would have to say… Dash and Lily’s book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. This book even takes place around Christmastime so it works. But it’s also really lighthearted and cute, but very intelligent and witty.

What is your favorite book with a white cover?

This cover may not be all white but I’m gonna go with it. If I stay by Gayle Forman. I love this book. Unlike a lot of other books I read the main girl, Mia, is not at all annoying. She’s awesome, and her parents are super cool as well as Adam.

You’re sitting on the couch snuggled in a onesie and drinking a nice, hot cup of hot cocoa but what MONSTER book are you reading?

The Iron King by Julie Kagawa. Awesome? Yes. Scary? Heck yeah. Especially in the beginning. Pale bowler hat guy in the closet… Nails scratching at the window at night… creepy, huh? That’s just the beginning of that book.

It started snowing! Which fictional characters would you love to have a snowball fight with?

Shadowhunters! In Clockwork Angel or City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. That would be really fun. Though it might get messy…;/

Sadly your fire is about to go out. Which book would you tear the last few chapters out of to add to the fire? (hypothetically speaking)

Allegiant by Veronica Roth. It’s just so sad… *sniff*

What book is so close to your heart that you would give it as a gift to someone this Christmas that wants to gets into reading?

I guess that’d have to be…

Maximum Ride series by James Patterson. These are the books that made me love Young Adult Fantasy. I’ve gone a long way from then but these will always be close to my heart.

There you go! Byyyeeeeeee
