I was tagged to do the Disney Princess Book Tag by Alaina at aninfinitebookworld! I tag everyone in the book community to participate in this tag!
1. Snow White: this book (like the movie) started it all!
What is your favorite debut book from an author?
I think that I am going to have to give this one to Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Welch. I read this book not too long ago and I fell in love with it. I absolutely adored the writing and I hope to read more by Jenna Evans Welch soon.
2. Cinderella: a diamond in the rough
Just like Cinderella, you didn't expect much out of this character in the beginning but they turned out to be a total gem!
Without a doubt, this goes to Feyre from A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. At the beginning of the series, I didn't expect Feyre to turn out to be a great character. However, I was very wrong. By the second book, Feyre had completely changed and became one of my favorite characters!
3. Aurora: sleeping beauty
A book that makes you sleepy or just could not hold your attention
A book that couldn't hold my attention is Fallen by Lauren Kate. I read this a while ago and it took forever to read. I couldn't get into it at all. I haven't decided yet if I want to continue with the series or not.
4. Ariel: under the sea
A book with a water/ocean setting
The first book that came to mind for this question was Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare. This book doesn't take place in an ocean but it does take place by an ocean so it will have to count for this question! :)
5. Belle: beauty and the books
Name a book with the best bookwork/book lover
I have to give this one to Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout. The main character, Katy, is a total booknerd. She has her own blog and reading this book is actually what inspired me to start my own blog!
6. Jasmine: the thief and the princess
Name a book with an unlikely love story (either in terms of romance or a book you didn't expect to love so much)
I can't think of any unlikely love stories, so I will be naming a book that I didn't expect to love. This book would be Clockwork Angel. I didn't think it could compare with my love for the Mortal Insturments series. But, I turned out to love this book just as much- maybe even a little bit more.
7. Pocohontas: the real life princess
Name a book that is based on a real life person you want to read/have read
This one goes to The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. This book was inspired by a girl with cancer that John Green had met. This novel obviously doesn't exactly follow her life. But, it was inspired by an actual person.
8. Mulan: the princess that saved her country
Name the fiercest heroine you know
One of the fiercest heroines that I can think of is Emma Carstairs from the Dark Artificies trilogy. After the events of the Dark War, Emma is back and fiercer than ever. She is one of the best Shadowhunters and after all of the things she has gone through, she is still fighting.
9. Tiana: the princess with the coolest and most diverse crew
Name a diverse book whether it is a diverse set of characters (likes Tiana's group of Naveen, Louis, Ray, and more) or just diverse in general
I am sure there are many books that are more diverse than the one I am choosing but this is the first book that popped into my mind for this question. A book with a lot of diverse characters in it is Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare. In this book, there are people of different ethnicities, races, and sexual orientations.
10. Rapunzel: let down your long hair
Name the longest book you've ever read
The longest book I have ever read is City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare. This book comes out to be 725 pages. I actually had to go look at how many pages some of my books had because there were several that had lots of pages.
11. Merida: I determine my own fate
A book where there is no love story/interest or isn't needed
I don't end up reading many books without romance as lots of YA books have romance in them. After thinking about this, I decided to use The Shadowhunter's Codex because there isn't really romance in it and it was the only one I could think of.
12. Anna/Elsa: frozen hearts
A book in a winter/cold setting
For this, I am choosing What Light by Jay Asher. This book takes place during Christmas time so, there usually will be snow (depending on the place).
13. Moana: how far I'll go
A character that goes on a journey
The person that comes to mind for this question is Clary Fairchild. She goes on a huge journey from mundane life to the life of a Shaowhunter. The journey is filled with crazy transitions and I think it fits well for this question!
