Hi, Hey, Hello!
Yeaahhh, I went a bit quiet last week, life happened and all that and I just kind of didn’t feel like blogging, so I didn’t. Rather fittingly and completely by accident the last post that did go up here kind of explained why that was the case.
But I’m back, I’ve got two outstanding book reviews that I need to do and another post that I’ve been putting off for damn months even though all the ideas are right there in my head. Then I’m gonna think of a few other posts to fill out the week and get me to Christmas Day and then I’m off until 2018.
For today though, I’m back with yet another book tag and this one is Disney themed!
1) Little Mermaid : A character that is out of their element, a fish out of water
Richard Neverwhere. He spent most of the book not really knowing what he was doing or how he got there.
2) Cinderella: A character who goes through major development
River from The Graces had such an intriguing arc. The ending of that book really signified a change in her. One that I am interested to see play out over the next book.
3) Snow White: A book with an eclectic group of characters
Okay, I had to really think about this and I still don’t really have a proper answer for it, but The Muse had a wide array of people in it.
4) Sleeping Beauty: A book that put you to sleep
Well, there are a lot. Grapes of Wrath was not something that I could not get on board with when I first tried to read it. The scope was too big and I was coming to the end of a 3 year uni degree and writing coursework for 2 different modules, I just didn’t have the the headspace for it.
5) The Lion King: A character who has something traumatic happen in their childhood
…I’m gonna say it…this is not the post were there are no repeats on books that I’ve talked about loads before. It’s Harry Potter.
6) Beauty and the Beast: A book that was a beast. (a book that intimidated you but you ended up loving)
I find it kind of hard to be intimidated by a book. I pretty much see every book over 400 or so pages as a welcome challenge. A Visit From the Goon Squad was a tad intimidating though because it played with form so much and I didn’t know how that would read. The answer is well, I loved that book.
7) Aladdin: A character who gets their wish granted for better or worse
I have only just started reading Caraval (like less than 100 pages at the moment, I’m semi off script for this year’s reading challenge, I’ve run out of portable books and so I can pretty much read what I want on train journeys now) but I feel like there is an element of getting what you want on some level, whether it’s for better or worse has yet to be determined, but it might be a little bit of both.
8) Mulan: A character who pretends to be something or someone they’re not
Spider, Anansi Boys. I mean, yeah, it’s quite a crucial part of the whole storyline.
9) Toy Story: A book with characters you want to come to life
Okay, I’m not going to say it again, because I’ve already mentioned the series that I would usually always say but I am coming at this question with a repeat offender, The Night Circus and I don’t even think it’s so much that I want the characters to come to life, I just want to be in that world and have that circus descend on me.
10) Disney Descendants: Your favourite villain
I seem to have a thing for falling a little bit in love with villains just because they seem have to more interesting back stories, and yet I cannot think of a single one. Actually, maybe Sorrento from Ready Player One. Did I already give that answer to another one these? Ah well, it still stands at the moment given that he’s the only one I can currently think of.
And there we have another tag post. Have a go if you want!
Parentheses count: 2. See you tomorrow!
