Recommending Books to Disney Sidekicks part 2 | Disney Recommendations #6

Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be recommending books to some more Disney sidekicks. Onto the post!


<!–more–>

LumiereRachael specially requested Lumiere to be in this post, and I think he’d enjoy the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before trilogy as he’s so charming and romantic, just like Lara Jean’s main love interest Peter Kavinsky from these books. I’m sure he’d definitely relate to him a lot and pick up some tips too! And from John Ambrose McLaren too, in the later books, I guess!

Pascal– Pascal is 100% one of my favourite Disney characters, no question. I love him! I actually really struggled to come up with a book for him, in fact, because I wanted it to be perfect since I love him so very, very much. I feel like Pascal has very similar energy to the brothers in On the Fence- he’s very protective of Rapunzel just like they are with Charlie, but he’s ultimately harmless. He’s also a proper softie deep down, so I’m sure he’d enjoy the romance in that book too!

MushuLily suggested I include Mushu in here, so even though I’ve not rewatched Mulan for ages, I decided I needed to come up with a book for him. Oddly, I think the book I just read might appeal to him. Whilst she’s from Mexican culture rather than Chinese, I think there’s a lot of similarities between him and Leo from A Dash of Trouble- both of them just want to feel like part of their families and have access to the magic they possess.

Zazu– I love Zazu so much; I think he’d hilarious. He’s pretty uppity and a bit snobby, even though he has a REALLY good heart underneath, so I think he might enjoy Secrets of a Teenage Heiress by Katy Birchall. The protagonist Flick is very similar, and just like Zazu I adore her character development!

Rajah– Like Pascal, Rajah is both hella protective of his princess and one of my fave sidekicks- I do love a good tiger. Unlike Pascal (and I apologise in advance to him), Rajah could do some SERIOUS damage to anyone he thinks poses a threat to Jasmine, so I feel like he’d want something with a bit more bite. I feel very unsure of this recommendation, but short of recommending the thing I haven’t read that I think sounds very Rajah (Nevernight, which is about assassins and very stabby according to Charlotte), I can only think of the Sorrow duology as something dark enough for him. I’m pretty sure he’d love thinking of the ways in which he’d love tearing Vespus to shreds…


Which Disney sidekick is your favourite? What do you think of my recommendations for these ones? I’d love to hear in the comments!

Five Books That Remind Me of George Ezra Songs

Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be doing a post about two of my very favourite things in the world- George Ezra and books, and specifically books that remind me of George Ezra songs. This was a little bit trickier than previous similar posts since George has less albums and also because I imagine full plots for almost all his songs in my head (can someone please reassure me that isn’t weird?), but I’m really pleased with what I came up with and it gave me a very good excuse to listen to him in the name of research. Anyway, onto the post!


The Flatshare– I could have picked just about any romance for Paradise, because it is about the feeling of love rather than a super specific love story, but I’ve went for this because of my favourite line in the whole thing, which if you’ve been paying very close attention you might know “I know you’ve heard it from those other boys, but this time it’s real, it’s something that I feel” and I think that fits Tiffy and Leon in a really beautiful way, because her ex was emotionally abusive and falling for Leon is so different for her. It’s a gorgeous book, and it deserves a link to such a gorgeous song in my mind.

Beautiful Broken Things/Fierce Fragile Hearts– I love Suzanne from these books, and I think Breakaway is perfect for her- my understanding of that song is that it’s about someone escaping an abusive situation, which is exactly what my beloved Suze is doing when we first meet her. The books are just amazing, and Breakway is one of the most underrated songs in existence. It makes me want to hug whoever it’s about just as much as I want to hug Suze as well!

Soulmates– this is the debut novel of Holly Bourne, who is now a well-deserved queen of YA, and I really enjoyed it. It reminds me of the Beautiful Dream not only because I interpret that song as being about finding a soulmate, but also because of one line that asks if the grass of Eden is overrated- aka is finding your soulmate overrated? Both the song and the book are brilliant. Also, can we talk for a second about how George Ezra’s girlfriend features on this and no one seems to have noticed?

The Curses– I can’t tell you a great deal about this book because you’ll enjoy it more if you go in as blind as a newborn kitten (read the Graces first though, or you’ll be confused out of your mind), but it has the same dark sense of humour and some similar themes to Did You Hear the Rain?, which always makes me laugh when I hear it now because it’s not a song people who only know George Ezra from radio would expect from him, I’m pretty sure.

The Longest Night of Charlie Noon-this is another one I can’t really tell you much about without spoiling it all, but it has huge themes of time passing, much like Cassy O (contrary to popular belief, it’s about time, NOT a girl). The song has some of George’s best writing, and the book is my favourite Christopher Edge to date.


What’s your favourite George Ezra song? Are there any books that remind you of one, and what do you think of my choices? I’d love to hear in the comments!

My Thoughts on Blue Neighbourhood

Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be talking about all my thoughts on Blue Neighbourhood, which is the debut album from one of my fave Aussie celeb Troye Sivan (I say this like I have a plethora of fave Aussies to choose from. There’s about 3 I love, the other two of which are James Mackay and Maddison Brown, both of Dynasty fame). Now that I’ve successfully made myself sound quite mad, onto the post!

Recommending Books to Some Disney Sidekicks | Disney Recommendations #5

Hello everybody! Today, it’s time for another Disney Recommendations post, this time featuring a few of the sidekicks. I’ve kept to quite a short list as I really want to do more of these and I’m starting to run out of categories, so I’m hoping I can split a few up so it doesn’t end as soon as it otherwise might. So if you’re wondering why a few of my favourites aren’t on here, that’s why! Onto the post!

Five Books That Remind Me of Panic! At the Disco Songs

Hello everybody! Last month, I did a post about books that remind me of Taylor Swift songs to celebrate the release of what turned out to be her new single Me!.

I had a lot of fun writing that post, so I decided I wanted to do something similar. Given that Panic! At the Disco also has an extensive back catalogue to choose from and their frontman Brendon Urie featured on Me!, they seemed the natural next choice. Onto the post!

5 Books That Remind Me of Taylor Swift Songs

Hello everybody! So, today, as I write this, I have no idea what’s coming, but yesterday when you’re reading this, Taylor Swift released something and today’s post is a Swfitie celebration of whatever it may be, about books that remind me of some of her songs. My personal hope for whatever is out is that it’s the lead single from her new album (which I want to be called Next Chapter, and a mix of Speak Now and 1989), and I’m VERY excited to see if my predictions come true. Onto the post!
