The Disney Book Tag

Sunday, 16 August 2015
Hey guys! I'm here today with another book tag for you. Now I wasn't actually tagged to do this one, but as I'm scheduling posts to upload whilst I'm away (hello from past Daniel!) I thought that this was a really awesome one to choose. It was originally created by Kat over at Katytastic on Youtube in celebration of the release of Isle of the Lost by Melissa de la Cruz, the prequel novel to the upcoming movie 'Disney's Descendants.' I hope you enjoy!

1. The Little Mermaid - A character who is out of their element, a “fish out of water”

For this question I decided to Jason from the Heroes of Olympus series. In the first book especially he is thrust into the world of demigods with no memory whatsoever. He has to very quickly adapt to his surroundings in order to stay alive. He kind of freaks out about it too!

2. Cinderella - A character who goes through a major transformation

I think I'm going to have to go with Ruby from Remix by Non Pratt. In the beginning of the novel she is a cocky and confident individual with a strong ego, however as the novel progresses, Ruby's world begins to slowly unravel and we realise that she's not quite strong of a character as she first made out to be. For such a dynamic character I found Ruby to definitely go through such a dramatic transformation.

3. Snow White - A book with an eclectic cast of characters

This definitely has to be Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. In this peculiar world there are so many unusual and different characters that really bring out their own individual qualities in the story. Each of them is dynamic in their own right and when they're brought together, they become even more enigmatic than they first seem.

4. Sleeping Beauty - A book that put you to sleep

As much as I hate to admit this, but Splintered by A.G. Howard was one that definitely made me drowsy. The problem is, I really enjoyed that book. Thoroughly enjoyed it! It took a dark and mysterious take on Wonderland, but the pacing of the book was so incredibly slow and the slowness made me feel as if I was completely oblivious to what was going on plot wise. If I think about it now I'm actually struggling to remember what happened. Unfortunately this was quite a major thing for me, which is why I feel that I napped throughout reading this book!

5. The Lion King - A character who had something traumatic happen to them in childhood

A traumatic childhood? What a rare occurrence in YA! I kid, theres so much of it. I think the most traumatic impact I can think of right now is Neville Longbottom from the Harry Potter series. His parents were tortured by the cruciatus curse and Neville had to live with that through the entire series, constantly striving to make them proud. He even had his grandmother on his back about doing well. As if the boy needed more pressure - it's clear to see why he crumbled in Moody's defence against the dark arts lesson! 

6. Beauty and the Beast - A beast of a book (a big book) that you were intimidated by, but found the story to be beautiful

Most definitely The Diviners by Libba Bray. That book is an absolute monster rocking in at almost 600 pages! It was ridiculous and I tried putting it off for so long, however when I got into it, the story just unravelled and I was instantly drawn into the world. It was so amazing (even if I'm in desperate need of a re-read because I've forgotten bits) and I can't wait to read the sequel 'Lair of Dreams', even if that book is even longer!

7. Aladdin - A character who gets their wish granted, for better or worse

I think for this one I'm going to go with Calypso from the Heroes of Olympus series. I'm not going to go into too much depth with this one because it's majorly spoilery, but lets just say her wish was to leave the island she was trapped on and leave it at that!

8. Mulan - A character who pretends to be someone or something they are not

For this question I think I'm going to go with Celeana Sardothian in the Throne of Glass book. In this novel Celeana has to pretend to be somebody else, using an alter ego so that nobody will guess who she truly is. Throughout the book although with the people she feels comfortable with she is Celeana, to those who she doesn't call friends she is the Lady Lillian. 

9. Toy Story - A book with characters you wish would come to life

Oh my goodness there are so many characters that I wish would just come to life, however I'm going to have to default and go back to the Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan. There are so many characters that I adore in that series and if I could have them step out of the page and into reality, then I totally would. Can you imagine Percy and Leo being your best friends? Ha, you'd have a blast!

10. Disney Descendants - Your favorite villain or morally ambiguous character. Both Disney or otherwise

Ooh this is an interesting one. For my favourite Disney villain it has to be Maleficent. I adore her character, I think she's so morally corrupt and genuinely just plain evil. I love it! As for my favourite bookish villain then I think I'm going to have to go with The Commandment from An Ember in the Ashes. Once again, she is just so deliciously evil and completely lacking in morals. She doesn't care at all, she just inflicts pain to get her way and I cannot think of a better villain!

Okay so there we have it, the Disney Book Tag! I'm not going to tag anyone specific in this post because I've done quite a lot of book tags recently and I think I end up mentioning the same people to do the tags because I love their answers. So, if you are reading this then I challenge YOU, yes you, do to this tag! As always, tag me in your post and on Twitter letting me know your answers because if I do manage to get wifi whilst I'm abroad, I'd love to read about them whilst I'm away. Taking a little bit of home with me!
