Disney Princess Book Tag

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

I found the Disney Princess Tag on Love at First Page and thought it looked really fun! Soudha over at Of Stacks and Cups created it.

Firstly, my three favorite Disney movies:

Mulan - the other two might change depending on my mood/the day but Mulan is forever and always my favorite Disney movie.
Hercules - the soundtrack. The totality of perfection that is Meg.

Snow White: Name your favorite classic

 I am going to go with The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien. It's not a hundreds-year old classic, but it is a modern one. It's haunting and sad and so worth a read, despite being required reading in high school.

Cinderella: Name a book that kept you reading well past your bedtime

The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. I read this novel straight through two times in a row, back to back. Nothing stood in my way, not even sleep. The first time through I was astonished and the second time through I had to revisit all the little hints and subtleties to be found. 

Aurora: Name your favorite classic romance

Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy from Pride and Prejudice.

Ariel: Name a book that’s about making sacrifices and fighting for your dreams

Pretty sure any Throne of Glass book is applicable here. See also Cinder.

Belle: Name a book with a smart and independent female character

Karou and Zuze from the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series. Both are great on their own, but together, they're better.

Jasmine: Name a book with a character who challenged the social conventions of his or her world

Naila from Written in the Stars. It's such a great book and Naila's struggles are vividly shown.

Pocahontas: Name a book whose ending was a roller coaster of emotions

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas. Hot damn did that book's ending set me (and Chaol) on my/our asses.

Mulan: Name a book with a kickass female character

Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard. It's been a while since I read these, but Miss Fit was nothing if not badass. See also: Fire from Fire.

Tiana: Name a book featuring a hardworking, self-made character

Joyride by Anna Banks. Carly Vega works for herself and also to bring her parents back over the border. It's not a POV you see much in YA.

Rapunzel: Name a book that features an artist

The Anatomical Shape of a Heart. Bex is not your typical artist (she likes to draw detailed medical illustrations) but her boyfriend Jack is another kind of artist as well.

Merida: Name a book that features a mother-daughter relationship

Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. I mean there are a myriad of strong, complicated relationships at the heart of JR, but the one between Tate and Taylor is one of the most pivotal.

Anna and Elsa: Name a book that features a great relationship between siblings

Something Real by Heather Demetrios. It's been over a year since I have read this one, but the bond between Bennie and Bonnie was so real and fully realized that it sticks out in memory.
