I remember when Mandy from Book Princess Reviews and Zuky from Book Bum first created this tag. Mandy even tagged me for it right off the back! Way back in May…but that was around the time my tags drafts became kinda wonky, and I may have deleted this…whoops. Sorry for taking so long to get to this, Mandy!
• Mention where you saw the tag/thank whoever tagged you because that’s always good fun
• Tag Book Princess Reviews and Zuky with our posts so we can check out the wonderful Princess fun throughout the blog world (Mine is this link and Zuky’s is here)
• Play a game of tag at the end!
This book (like the movie) started it all: Favorite Debut from an Author:
Hm, one debut I really liked in recent memory is One of Us Is Lying, by Karen M. McManus. It takes a lot of effort to make a great mystery book your debut!
A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH
Just Like Cinderella, You Either Didn’t Expect Much Out of This Character in the Beginning But Turned Out to Be a Total gem:
That would have to be The Infernal Devices, I didn't expect a lot out of it (I just thought it would be overhyped) but as it turns out, I became way too emotionally invested in them.
Aurora: Sleeping Beauty
A book that makes you sleepy or just could not hold your attention.
I'm going to be hated so much for this answer…but the Lord of The Rings series. (Cringes away from the screaming fans) It may
have been the writing style, but I could not get invested in those books. My dad read them aloud to me, and I always fell asleep.
Ariel: Under the sea
A book with a water/ocean setting
I'm cheating, since I'm choosing a Webtoon…but Siren's Lament. I mean, you just read the word, "siren", and you know it'll be underwater.
Belle: Beauty and the Books
Name a book with the best bookworm/ book lover:
I know popular answers include Hermione Granger and Tessa Gray, but I decided on Liesel Meminger. This is a girl with a serious passion for books and reading; she learns to read at age ten, and she even steals books, she loves them so much.
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):
This applies to the second half more, and I'm cheating again by choosing a Webtoon: Cheese in the Trap. When I first started reading it, I considered dropping it; it was really confusing. But by season 2, I absolutely was addicted.
Pocahontas: The real life princess
Name a book that is based on a real life person you want to read/have read:
I recently started reading Hidden Figures after watching the movie. I may have gotten distracted while reading it, but I will finish it someday!
Mulan: the princess that saved her country
Name the fiercest heroine you know:
There are so many! So let's just name two from my latest finished book…
Inej and Nina from Six of Crows. Inej is a spy known as the Wraith, as she can slip into places virtually undetected, and she's also incredibly agile and a knife expert. Nina is a Grisha called a Heartrender, and she can manipulate other people's internal organs.
Tiana: 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:
Are you kidding me? I was gonna use Six of Crows for this…(sigh) Let's use a Webtoon. Although she may not be the main character, Whale's group in Gepetto is diverse, as some are human, some cyborg, some android, and some clones…
Rapunzel: let your longggg hair down:
Name the longest book you've ever read:
I'm unsure of the answer to this. It's likely Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, although I could be wrong.
Merida: I determine my own fate
A book where there is no love story/ interest or isn't needed:
Mattie Ross is a fourteen year old girl on a revenge quest aided by two adult Texas Rangers. She definitely isn't on the lookout for romance whatsoever; she's all business.
Anna/ Elsa: frozen hearts
A book in a winter/cold setting:
Winter has settled in Steampunk era alternate England for both Mina and Evaline…(yes, I finally got this book!)
Moana: How far I'll go
A character that goes on a journey:
I may not have finished this yet, but I do think June from Legend goes on both a physical journey (to find her brother's killer) and emotional journey (having her views totally turned on their heel)
