Beauty and the Beast Book Tag

I absolutely love Beauty and the Beast, so you can only imagine how happy I was when I was tagged by the lovely Sarah over at Book Hooked Nook to do this post. So, without further ado, let’s get to the tag!

“Oh what a guy, Gaston!” – A villain you can’t help but love

draco

I’m not sure whether Draco Malfoy can be considered a proper villain but I think he definitely has villainish tendencies. I can’t help but love him because although he was brought up to be bad, he has a lot of potential to be good.

“Here’s where she meets prince charming” – Your OTP

malec

I’m only up to City of Glass in The Mortal Instruments, but I ship Alec and Magnus so hard.

“I want so much more than this provincial life” – A character destined for greater things

love, hate, other filters

Maya from Love, Hate and Other Filters goes through so much hate and discrimination in this book, but she is extremely talented and is destined for so much more than her small town.

“Be our guest!” – A book that made you hungry

hungry

I’d say any book with food in it.

“Beauty and the Beast” – Opposites attract

ron hermione

I spent a very long time thinking about this prompt and I could only really think of Ron and Hermione. They have such different personalities but they work so well together.

“But there’s something in him that I simply didn’t see” – A character who is more than they appear

Miss Peregrine

You could say it’s because he’s invisible, but Millard from Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children proved himself to be extremely brave by the end pf the first book.

“I was innocent and certain, now I’m wiser but unsure” – A book that changed you in some way

tkamb

I will always say To Kill a Mockingbird for prompts like this. That book changed me so much.

“Kill the Beast!” – A book you picked up because of hype

Draker Shade

I picked up A Darker Shade of Magic because of the hype. I certainly was not disappointed and this book deserved all the hype it can get!

“I’ll never shake away the pain” – A book moment that always makes you cry

I will never not cry at this moment.

“How does a moment last forever” – A book you’ve loved since you were little

when we were very young

My parents and grandparents used to read When We Were Very Young to me as a child. I loved the poems in this book and it is a book that I will read to my future children.

 

Is there a book that you are very sentimental towards? Let me know in the comments.

 

Thanks for reading,

The Disney Book Tag

This tag was created by Katytastic on Youtube back in 2015. I had completely forgotten that this tag existed until now but I am very happy it does exist because I love Disney and I love books, making this the perfect tag.

The Little Mermaid – a character who is out of their element, a ‘fish out of water’.

royals cover

I chose Daisy from Royals by Rachel Hawkins for this one. Daisy was thrown into a royal life of which was so different from her own life. Everything about Daisy’s new life was different from her old one from the way that she had to act around others to her mode of transport.

Cinderella – a character who goes through a major transformation.

HP

The only answer I could think of for this was Harry, Ron and Hermione from the Harry Potter series. These characters experience so much development as they grow up throughout the series that they are almost completely different people by the final book than they were in the first book.

Snow White – a book with an eclectic cast of characters.

ACOMAF

I love Rhysand and his friends! They are all so different which is what makes them such a great group. The characterisations contrasted and complemented each other perfectly.

Sleeping Beauty – a book that put you to sleep.

The Moonstone

I had to read The Moonstone for college and it bored me soooo much. I couldn’t connect or relate to any of the characters and, being half Indian, I didn’t enjoy the way in which Wilkie Collins portrayed the Indian Brahmins.

The Lion King – a character that had something traumatic happen to them in childhood.

Starfish

I can’t say what happens as it would spoil this book. Kiko has something very traumatic happen to her in Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman. This book was very emotional, heartbreaking but beautiful.

Beauty and the Beast – a beast of a book (a big book) that you were intimidated by, but found the story to be beautiful.

ACOWAR

The Book Thief

Both The Book Thief and A Court of Wings and Ruin intimidated me very much with their length but once I started reading them I ended up absolutely flying through them and they’ve ended up being some of my favourite books.

Aladdin – a character who gets their wish granted, for better or for worse.

Mulan – a character who pretends to be someone or something they are not.

Cinder

I’m putting Cinder for both Aladdin and Mulan because in this Cinderella retelling Cinder so desperately wishes to be away from her horrible step mother. This is what pushes her to pretend that she is something that she is not and ends up getting her into a terrible situation.

Toy Story – a book with characters you wish would come to life.

To All the Boys I've Loved Before

After watching the new Netflix movie, I just want these characters to come to life even more please.

Disney Descendants – your favourite villain or morally ambiguous character.

city of bones

I have always loved Valentine from The Mortal Instruments as a villain because no matter how awful he is, he truly believes that what he is doing is the right thing. This makes him such a complex character to me.

 

Thanks for reading!
