Today I’m once again combining my loves of books and Disney in order to do the new Disney Princess Book Tag, for which I was tagged by the LOVELY Rosie from Rosie Freckle Reads (albeit a tad unofficially in the comments, when I mentioned my love for Disney 😂)
Let’s get onto the tag!
The Book (Like the Movie) That Started it All
Favourite Debut Book from an Author
A Diamond in the Rough
Just Like Cinderella, You Didn’t Expect Much Out of This Character in the Beginning But Turned Out to be a Total Gem
A Book That Makes You Sleepy Or Could Not Hold Your Attention
Under the Sea
A Book With a Water/Ocean setting
I can’t think of many books with a water/ocean setting, but two I love are Mermaid Magic by Gwyneth Rees and Mermaid Wishes by Carol Barton. I read both of these when I was young and I was captivated. I highly recommend them both to anyone looking for funny, sweet lower middle grade (Mermaid Wishes is absolutely hilarious in places, and I STILL enjoy rereads of that series just as much now.)
Beauty and the Books
Name a Book With the Best Bookworm/Book Lover
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)
The Real Life Princess
Name a Book That is Based on a Real Life Person You Want to Read/Have Read
The Princess That Saves Her Country
Name the Fiercest Heroine You Know
The Princess with the Coolest and Most Diverse Crew
Name a Diverse Book Whether it is a Diverse Set of Characters or Just Diverse in General
I’m going to go for Radio Silence by Alice Oseman for this question. It’s a wonderful book that I was totally gripped by (it was an utter pain having to stop for a few hours so I could do last minute revision for and sit my Modern Studies exam, let me tell you)
Let Your Long Hair Down
Name the Longest Book You’ve Read
I’m pretty sure the longest book I’ve ever read is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix! My copy is 800 pages long, but I read it in a day the first I read them as it’s so phenomenally written and paced.
I Determine my Own Fate
A Book Where There is No Love Story/Interest or Isn’t Needed
I think I have to shout out to Beautiful Broken Thungs by Sara Barnard here. It’s an absolutely anazing book that tackles how messy female friendships can be and shows a character recovering from childhood abuse in her new home.
Anna and Elsa
A Book in a Winter/Cold Setting
How Far I’ll Go
A Character That Goes on a Journey
Alfie from Defender of the Realm (and Dark Age) by Nick Ostler and Mark Huckerby goes on some epic actual and emotional journeys in these books. I’m both excited and terrified to see what the 3rd book will hold for him next year!
See you soon with a new post
