Today I'm doing the Disney book Tag. I wasn't actually tagged by anyone but it sounded fun and I wanted to do it, so if you've got a problem with that, come at me bruh! So let's get started with this tag.
1. The Little Mermaid - a character who is out of their element, a “fish out of water”. For this one, I definitely have to go with Harper Price from Rebel Belle because all of a sudden she just has these powers and absolutely no idea what to do with them.
2. Cinderella - a character who goes through a major transformation. Frank Zhang from the Heroes of Olympus series because, I don't want to spoil anything, but we all know some BIG changes happen in House of Hades.
3. Snow White - a book with an eclectic cast of characters. For this one, I probably have to go with the book I'm reading right now, which is Girl Defective. Sky is really kind of shy and awkward, while Nancy is bold, and her brother is.............interesting. But it's really cool how they sort of band together despite all their differences.
4. Sleeping Beauty - a book that put you to sleep. I don't think I've ever actually fallen asleep during a book, but there were definitely books that bored me that I almost fell asleep. One of these is Beautiful Chaos because the story felt like it was just going in circles and I was pretty much done with Lena. Not surprisingly, I ended up dropping it. A couple weeks ago, I got it from the library again, but it just sat there until I decided to just return it.
5. The Lion King - a character who had something traumatic happen to them in childhood. Sarah from Sarah's Key, because, well, spoiler. If you've read the book, you know exactly what I mean, and if you haven't I advise you to go pick it up immediately.
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. As a little kid, I owned the hardcover of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It sat in a cupboard, and I used to take it out every night to try and read a chapter. I was really intimidated by the size of the book, but it's definitely one of my favorite Harry Potter books. IF YOU HAVEN'T READ HARRY POTTER (COUGH, COUGH, BUTTER) WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIFE? GO AND READ THEM NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
7. Aladdin - a character who gets their wish granted, for better or worse. Mara from the Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. It's a spoiler, but you all know what I mean if you've read it. She wishes a certain thing, and, voila, it happens.
8. Mulan - a character who pretends to be someone or something they are not. Mia in If I Stay pretends to be this outgoing rocker chick because she thinks that her boyfriend will like her better that way. In the end of that scene, he tells her he likes her as herself and not anyone else, which just goes to show that you can't try to change yourself for someone else.
9. Toy Story - a book with characters you wish would come to life. THERE ARE TOO MANY TO CHOOSE!!!!!!! How about the limited edition bind-up of the Stephanie Perkins books, the Harry Potter books, the Percy Jackson books, the Mortal Instruments and the Infernal Devices? Totally works.
10. Disney Descendants - your favorite villain or morally ambiguous character. I'm not really sure if this means my favorite book villain or my favorite Disney villain. My favorite book villain is probably Bellatrix Lestrange from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, because she's just so eerie and unpredictable, but it's still really enticing. My favorite Disney villain is definitely Maleficent, she commands power and is still regal and not weird.
So that is the Disney book tag! I hope you all had fun reading this, because I definitely had fun writing this.
Talk to you tomorrow (if I don't procrastinate),
