The wonderful Katytastic over on Youtube basically put our favourite things together (books and Disney) and came up with this amazing tag! We were so excited when Kristin @ SimplyBookishThings tagged us and we apologise it has taken us so long to post it!!!! But anyways, let’s get into the questions!
The Little Mermaid: A character who is out of their element, a ‘fish out of water’
For us, this was definitely Cath from Fangirl. A quiet, shy girl who writes fanfiction moving into her dorm room in College, it’s enough for anyone to feel like fish out of water! It’s scary to think that this is probably going to be us next year… except we don’t write fanfiction, we read it.
Cinderella: A character that goes through a major transformation
The first person that came to mind was Twylla from the Sin Eaters Daughter. From acting like the Queen’s slave at the start of the book to taking her life into her own hands at the end of the book… her transformation was huge and we loved reading about her growing as a person and finding herself.
Snow White: A book with an eclectic cast of characters
There is no other adjective to describe the cast of I’ll Give You the Sun other than eclectic. From crazy artists, to “bad boys”, gay couples and the ghost of Grandma Sweetwine, the character list covers a whole range of people. I honestly think that is the reason why so many people loved this book, because so many people were able to relate with the vast range of characters.
Sleeping Beauty: A book that put you to sleep
The Immortal Series by Alyson Noel. The first two books were good, but then Ever kept making stupid decisions after stupid decisions and it kinda got boring, and very annoying.
The Lion King: A character who had something traumatic happen to them in their childhood
Even though Cammie is basically living our dream by being a teenage spy, she had quite a traumatic childhood. Her father never came back from a spy mission, and she had to live her life not even knowing if he was dead or alive. We can’t even imagine what that would feel like.
Beauty And The Beast: A beast of a book (a big book) that you were intimidated by, but found the story to beautiful
We read the Twilight Saga when we were quite young, so Breaking Dawn was very intimidating. At 756 pages, we are pretty sure this book can qualify as a beast, but we loved it. Sorry not sorry.
Aladdin: A character who gets their wish granted, for better or for worse
Rudy from The Book Thief got his wish granted. He finally got his kiss from Liesel… Oh god. We’re getting emotional.
Mulan: A character who pretends to be someone or something they’re not
Mr Gatsby from The Great Gatsby pretends to be something that he isn’t to please Daisy. Not quite sure it worked out for him though..
Toy Story: A book with characters you wish could come to life
Yep, you guessed it, the cast of Harry Potter. We’re sorry for giving such an un-original answer, but is there even another answer to this question??
Disney Descendants: Your favourite villain or morally ambiguous character.
Caleb Prior from Divergent, does he even count? Well we both had a bit of soft spot for him (probably because he was played by the gorgeous Ansel Elgort).
