I see people doing book tags everywhere and normally I read them and go “that was cute” or “I like that idea” but then I do nothing and continue on with my life just wishing someone would tag me one so I have to do it hahah. I’ve decided this is the year of do what makes you happy and you know what? I think I’m going to try a book tag (even if I wasn’t tagged in it 🤷🏻♀️)
I came across this tag on a wonderful blog – Alyssa @ Reading Reading Reading! Check her out, she is great!
#1. The Little Mermaid – A character that is out of their element, a “Fish out of Water”.
I am going to choose “Laurel” from the book I just read – “The Grave Keepers” by Elizabeth Byrne.
Laurel was a sheltered child! All she knew was her house and her family. She was home schooled and not even allowed to go into town due to fears that something bad might happen to her. When Laurel meets another kid her age in the forest – she doesn’t know how to interact or what is normal in a friendship!
#2. Cinderella – A character that goes through a major transformation.
Jamie from the Charlotte Holmes series! Jamie is such a sweet boy and he meets Charlotte Holmes (decedent of Sherlock Holmes) and flips his world upside down. Now he is in all sorts of trouble and is fighting crimes and solving mysteries all while trying to be a normal teenager. He really matures and grows throughout the series. One of my fav characters of all time.
Charlotte also transforms big time too but I liked Jamie more haha
#3. Snow White – A book with an eclectic cast of characters.
I feel like the Gone series by Michael Grant fits this well. While most the characters are going through the same troubling times and face the same issues, they all react differently and have different “powers” which makes each character special and useful!
#4. Sleeping Beauty – A book that put you to sleep.
The Witch of Little Italy! That book was boring and honestly I did fall asleep while reading it 🤷🏻♀️
#5. The Lion King – A character that had something traumatic happen to them in their childhood.
Isaak from “Boy Robot”- all in one night, his parents are killed, finds out his “parents” were not really his biological parents, finds out he is not a kid but a ROBOT, and then has to run for his life because he is being hunted down to be killed because…… he is a robot. Seems a little rough.
#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.
The biggest book I’ve read to date is “The Institute” – I wouldn’t say the story was beautiful per say – but it was amazingly written… so I guess that could be beautiful in its own way!
#7. Aladdin – A character that get’s their wish granted, for better or for worse.
Anna and The Apocalypse. Anna’s best friend John wished that Anna wouldn’t leave after they graduated. He got that wish because SURPRISE there was a zombie apocalypse and of course no one was going anywhere because, zombies!
#8. Mulan – A character that pretends to be something or someone they are not.
Edward (and family) from Twilight…. claims he is a normal high school student – turns out, NOPE, hes a vampire!!
#9. Toy Story – A book with characters you wish would come to live.
Harry Potter!! I just want to learn some magic and see Hogwarts what can I say hahaha
#10. Disney Descendants – Your favourite villain or morally ambiguous character.
This one is difficult for me…. but to keep the Disney theme I will say my fav morally ambiguous character is general is Maleficent. Just watched the movie the other day and seriously LOVED it and her. Sorry – not technically a book character… although Maleficent is based on the Grimm Brothers version of The Sleeping Beauty!
I am tagging a few people!! Feel free to do this or not! Whatever you want 🙂 And also, if you are not tagged please participate anyways because this was so fun!
