5 Disney Films I Haven’t Seen Yet but Want To

Hello everybody!

It’s the weekend, yay! Today I’m going to be talking about the 5 Disney films I most want to watch, but for whatever reasonI haven’t got round to yet!

Let’s get started 😊


 Pinocchio- I’m not really sure why I haven’t watched this yet, as I absolutely loved it as a pantomime (I’ve only seen it done once that I can remember, but it worked a lot better than I thought it would), and some of my favourite characters I met at Disneyland Paris were from this film (Gideon jumps to mind in particular). I definetely need to get round to it soon!


Oliver and Company– This film sounds like EXACTLY the sort of Disney movie I love best, seeing that it has music, animals and lovely friendships. (And it’s set in New York, which always tends to be a treat visually!). The last time I tried to get the DVD it was too expensive, but when I check now it’s much cheaper so I’m planning to try and get a copy soon!

EditDumbo- Ive been putting off watching this for AGES (I’ve owned it for years). Why, you ask? Because I think it’s going to break my heart. I don’t do well with bad things happening to animals, especially baby ones 😭. I’m in the same boat with The One and Only Ivan too!

Peter Pan- I had to read the book of Peter Pan when I was at primary school, and I didn’t especially enjoy it. My mum read it with me, and also hated it, but unlike me isn’t especially willing to give the Disney film a chance 😔. I will eventually get round to it myself though!

101 Dalmatians– I haven’t watched this yet because I absolutely adore the book, and I’m worried the film won’t live up to it. I’ve heard it’s lovely to watch around Christmas though, so maybe this festive season will get me to watch it.

Thank you so much for reading! Are there any Disney movies you haven’t watcged yet but want to? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter @GoldenBooksGirl

See you soon with a new post

The Disney Book Tag

Hello everybody! 

Today I’m combining two of my favourite things in the world; books and Disney.

This tag was created by Kat from katytastic, and I was tagged for this by Meg , and I loved coming up with my answers (although I found a few super tricky!)

Let’s begin! 

1. THE LITTLE MERMAID- A CHARACTER WHO FEELS LIKE A FISH OUT OF WATER

I don’t think it’ll come as a surprise to many of you that I’m choosing Harriet Manners from Geek Girl. Harriet doesn’t feel that she fits in, and I love her journey of realising that she doesn’t need to be super cool, she just needs to be herself, as she’s pretty awesome.

2. CINDERELLA- A CHARACTER WHO GOES THROUGH A MAJOR TRANSFORMATION 

For this I decided to go with Hazel Wong from the Murder Most Unladylike Mysteries. Hazel has developed so much from when we first met her in Murder Most Unladylike, and it’s been a privilege to see her change into someone much more confident and happy with themself.

3. SNOW WHITE- A BOOK WITH AN ECLECTIC CAST

For this, I’ve picked Prisoner of Ice and Snow by Ruth Lauren, which has a really awesome cast of characters who are all trying to break out of prison. I loved all of them and I cannot wait for the sequel (I’m also really looking forward to this actually coming out so I can rave properly about in my review on the blog tour and also so you can all read it and rave with me!)

4. SLEEPING BEAUTY- A BOOK WHICH PUT YOU TO SLEEP

For me, I think this has to be Sea by Sarah Driver. This was the Waterstones Children’s Book of the Month back in March and I was super excited when I bought it, but I just couldn’t get into it at all, and it felt like a chore to get through it. I don’t think I’ll be reading the sequel.

5. THE LION KING- A CHARACTER WHO HAD A TRAUMATIC CHILDHOOD 

The only character who immediately comes to mind for this is Suzanne from Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard (which you should definetely read if you haven’t yet, it’s phenomenal). Her childhood was so horrific and it’s watching her recover from it that makes BBT a hard read in places.

6. BEAUTY AND THE BEAST- AN INTIMIDATING READ

I’m unsure whether this means intimidating in length or content, so I’ll answer both. The longest book I’ve read is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, but in honesty I was so hooked by this point that I devoured it in a single day. In terms of content, I think a book I found intimidating in content was To  Kill a Mockingbird, which I had to read for English last year.

7. ALADDIN- A CHARACTER WHO GETS THEIR WISH GRANTED 

I really struggled with this question, so I fell back on my trusty old BSC to help me (if you don’t know what the BSC is, it’s the Babysitters Club, which in my opinion are amazing and I will not hear A SINGLE WORD against, unless you want to moan about some characters with me 😊)

Anyhow, my answer to this is Stacey (one of the characters I most like to moan about, but I digress), who gets to move back to Stoneybrook from New York, at the cost of her parents getting a divorce.

8. MULAN- A CHARACTER WHO PRETENDS TO BE SOMEONE THEY’RE NOT

This was another question I found tough, but in the end I chose Scarlett from the Secret Cooking Club series by Laurel Remington. Scarlett really finds herself in these books, and she has to pretend to be very different to herself for a few reasons in the first book, and in the second she juggles with being true to herself online (can you tell I’m trying not to spoil the storylines of these for you? 😂)

9. TOY STORY- CHARACTERS I WANT TO COME TO LIFE

This was hard for the opposite reason to the past two- I have so many characters I’d love to meet! I think my top picks would have to be The Gods from Who Let the Gods Out (especially Hermes, who I hated in book 1 and adore after book 2), the Spinster Club Girls (for obvious reasons; they’re totally awesome and have good snacks) and also the characters from Geek Girl as I’ve read them so many times I feel like they’re my friends already. 

10. DISNEY DESCENDANTS- FAVOURITE VILLAINS

I’m hoping to do a full post about this to tie in with Halloween in October, but a few of my absolute favourite villains are every villain from Who Let the Gods Out, they’re all such incredible villains, Lucretia Cutter from the Beetle Boy books and also Cruella de Vil, from the One Hundred and One Dalmatians by Dodie Smith.

I’m tagging Charlotte, Rosie and Andrew! If you’d like to do this, please feel free!
