Recommending Books to Lion King Characters | Disney Recommendations

Hello everybody! So, it’s been at least a year (and possibly two) since I last wrote a post for this series where I recommend books to Disney characters, but ages and ages ago someone suggested I did the characters from the Lion King for one, so here we finally are. TLK is one of my absolute favourite Disney films, and I rewatched it the other week, so it’s pretty fresh in my memory. Onto the post!

If you Liked This Book… Why Not Try This One? | Part 2

Hello everybody! Today, I’m bringing you the second installment of my efforts to do really specific book recommendations for if you enjoyed a certain book, which I loved doing the first time after having enjoyed other people’s versions for ages, and really want to make a regular feature here I think. Onto the post!

If You Liked This Book… Try This One Next

Hello everybody! Today, I’m doing a post I’ve kind of wanted to do for years but somehow never have even though I see it done loads on Booktube, which is to recommend a book based on one certain other book/series. I’m a bit nervous in case people don’t like my version of it and my choices, but anyway, onto the post!


<!–more–>
If you liked COUNTING BY SEVENS, then try OCTOBER, OCTOBER

These probably don’t sound that similar on paper, particularly as one takes place in Britain while the other is in America, but something about the writing just really strongly reminded me of reading Counting by 7s years ago when I picked up October, October earlier this month, after Rach recommended it to me. They’re both very special, powerful contemporaries with beautiful messages.

If you liked the SORROW DUOLOGY, then try the STORM WITCH books

If I’m ever reading YA fantasy, it’s generally because it’s political fantasy in some way, and hearing Sorrow was like the West Wing in a different world is definitely what convinced me to give it a chance. Storm Witch is middle grade, but it too has a formidable main character who I love a great deal, and it has similar vibes in terms of the power struggle, even though Storm Witch has a bit more magic.

If you liked LETTERS TO THE LIGHTHOUSE, then try ANNA AT WAR

These are both set in a similar time period, and Letters explores the story of British evacuees in World War Two, but Anna at War focuses on a Jewish German girl who has come to Britain on the Kindertransport. I love both of them desperately.

If you liked A GIRL CALLED OWL/SHADOWS OF WINTERSPELL, try THE MIDNIGHT GUARDIANS

These aren’t exactly the same because Amy Wilson’s work is contemporary and the Midnight Guardians is historical, but if you enjoy reading about fae and adventures and friendship, I think you’d probably enjoy one if you liked the other.

If you like SOPHIE ANDERSON’S WRITING, try THE WILD MAGIC TRILOGY

The fairytale/folk tale, slightly ethereal vibe that Sophie’s work has, particularly in the Castle of Tangled Magic, is why I’ve paired them with this trilogy, which begins with Begone the Raggedy Witches. They’re really interesting fantasies that are a bit different to the majority of MG fantasy, the writing is beautiful and I think the stories they have to tell are so wonderful.



Would you be interested in seeing more posts like this? Are there any specific books you’d want to be included if I did do any? I’d love to hear in the comments!

Five Books That Remind Me of Vistas Songs

Hello everyone! Today, I’m doing another post in a series I haven’t updated in AGES, which is my books that remind of ___ songs, and given they’ve become pretty much my favourite artist this year, it had to be about the wonderful Scottish band Vistas, who I’ve been listening to pretty much non-stop since I found them in April. If you’d like to read my post about their album, you can do that here, but otherwise onto the post!

Five Characters I’d Love to Follow on Social Media

Hello everybody! Today, I’m taking part in my first Top Ten Tuesday of 2020, and today’s theme is characters we’d like to follow on social media, which I had SO much fun thinking about. Onto the post!


<!–more–>

Nick Hidaka– otherwise known as Lion Boy, Nick remains one of my ultimate fictional crushes and will be until I’m old enough that it’s creepy. We all have those people we follow because we fancy them, and if he was real he’d absolutely be mine! Also, he’s hilarious and I think he’d be a blast on Twitter.

Lara-Jean Song-Covey– I don’t actually really like eating any baked goods, but I bloody LOVE looking at pretty photos of them. Therefore, LJ is 100% someone I want to be following. I’m also super into looking at pretty clothes, so she really would be a dream Insta follow for me.

Daisy Wells– I don’t know how Daisy would feel about social media given she is from the 1930s but I feel like she’d enjoy sharing her observations with the world and letting everyone know what an amazing detective she is. I have a feeling I’d really like her Twitter, if she had one! Also, I can’t just do a list of MMU characters

Cosmo Walker– I, Cosmo was my absolute favourite book last year, and if Cosmo had an Instagram I’d follow it in a HEARTBEAT. Like, I can’t tell you how much less I’d scroll social media if I didn’t follow so many animals. I’d just love to see his little golden face pop up on my screen all the time! And hopefully he’d have videos of him dancing as well?!

Izzy O’ Neill– Izzy is feminist and hilarious. She’d be a very on brand follow for me, and I think I’d absolutely love hearing what she had to say about current affairs, but also just getting to keep up with her life would be great given her series is now over.


Which characters would you most like to follow on social media, and which social media specifically do you want to follow them on? I’d love to hear in the comments!
