Disney Princess Book Tag
I feel like it’s been ages since I’ve done a book tag and I love doing them so I’m super excited. AND a Disney Princess tag? Better yet. I practically live in Disney Princess world. Haha. Welcome to the world of a 3yr old little girl. So, here it goes.
- Mention where you saw the tag/thank whoever tagged you
- Tag Zuky and Mandy with their posts so they can check out the wonderful Princess fun throughout the blog world (Mandy’s link & Zuky’s link)
- Play a game of tag at the end!
This book (like the movie) started it all – Favorite debut book from an author
A diamond in the rough – Just like Cinderella, you either didn’t expect much out of this character in the beginning but they turned out to be a total gem
Lady Jane Grey from My Lady Jane… I knew the book was funny. The description says it’s comical, but I will admit I started the book once and stopped because it was quite weird. When I picked it up again for my book club, however, I loved it. Jane is awesome, and yes, the book is quite comical.
Sleeping Beauty – a book that makes you sleepy or just could not hold your attention
Sorry, Kate Morton, everyone in my book club LOVED your book, but I tried twice and I can’t get through it. But I like thinking of it as Sleeping Beauty.
Under the sea – A book with a water/ocean setting
Salt to the Sea is a great YA historical fiction about a part of WWII that we don’t usually read about. I liked that it didn’t get so WWII that it made me sick the whole time. I’m much more surface-y when it comes to that topic. And this was a great on.
Beauty and the books – Name a book with the best bookworm/book lover
Cath writes her own fan fiction. I don’t know how much more of a book lover you can get.
The thief and the princess – Name book with an unlikely love story (either in terms of romance or a book you didn’t expect to love so much)
The Count of Monte Cristo… so many unlikely love stories AND I didn’t expect to love it so much. But I loved the abridged version so much that I read it all in one day. I was supposed to clean my house but literally could not put the book down.
The real life princess – Name a book that is based on a real life person you want to read/have read
Me: Stories of my Life by Katharine Hepburn. Have you seen the movie The Philadelphia Story with Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, and James Stewart? No? Go watch it right now. It will not disappoint! I fell in love with Jimmy Stewart from this movie. He is my 1930’s crush for sure. Then, Katharine Hepburn is amazing. Did you know she holds the record for most Oscars won? See? Amazing!
The princess that saved her country – Name the fiercest heroine you know
Vika Andreyeva from The Crown’s Game. Vika can do magic, she works for the king, and she’s supposed to be by his side to keep the country safe. She’s awesome.
The princess with the coolest and most diverse crew – Name a diverse book whether it is a diverse set of characters (like Tiana’s group of Naveen, Louis, Ray, and more) or just diverse in general
I loved Angelica’s pick of Six of Crows. That was literally the perfect book for this question. But, to pick something different I’m going with Caraval… The actors/people who work in Caraval are totally different and diverse and colorful and magical. I might secretly wish I could visit Caraval and play my own game.
Let your longggggg hair down – Name the longest book you’ve ever read
1037 of pure literary TRAGEDY! Are you kidding me? I spent all that time reading this so sad book. Even now, years later, my heart hurts to think about this book and what could have been. I”m not saying that Margaret Mitchell didn’t write the most perfect book, because she did. Scarlett O’Hara is the perfect flawed protagonist, but the tragedy is that she never changes. Ever. And the book is sad. But so well written. I’d totally tell you to read it. Because it’s so good. Just sad too. Ok, I’m done rambling.
I determine my own fate – A book where there is no love story/interest or isn’t needed
Lilac Girls- There is one small love interest but the book is not a romance. I wouldn’t even call the sub plot a romance. It’s just there for a bit. And you now what, I still liked the book.
Frozen hearts – A book in a winter/cold setting
Christmas in Snowflake Canyon… Pretty much Christmas in snow and mountains… with a socialite girl and a war veteran guy and since it’s a romance, they might fall in love…maybe.
How far i’ll go – A character that goes on a journey
Laia and Elias in A torch Against the Night go on a journey across the country. Hundreds of Miles. Mostly on foot. So, I think this counts… and if we want to make it more metaphorical, the journey that Elias takes at the end of the book was quite the shocker.
Ok, this was so much fun. I tag:
