The “I Messed Up” Book Tag

Hi there,
So, okay, I wasn’t technically tagged to do this (but am I really tagged to do any of them) but I saw it and super wanted to do it so here we are. I saw this tag on the mud and stars book blog, you should go check out that blog it’s super awesome. Anyway, so this tag is basically all stuff that I’ve completely goofed on during my reading career (is career even the right word?). Right, lets just jump right in.

1) A character appearance that you misread or imagined differently?
Magnus Bane from The Mortal Instruments series. I imagined him old and grey and bearded but apparently that isn’t even close. His character description just went way over my head so I didn’t realize he was young until he started a thing with Alec. Even then I was kinda creeped out for a while first.

2) A character name that you’ve been pronouncing wrong?
Tobias from the Divergent trilogy. I pronounced it toe-bee-us for all three books and then the movie came out and ruined everything.
aa.gif

3) An overused trope that is your guilty pleasure
I actually have no idea, most overused tropes annoy me a lot so I don’t think I have an answer.

4) A cliche character type that you like seeing on screen than reading about
Definitely the “bad boy” character that has to hide his dangerous past. I love it on screen and I love that the actors are always super attractive but I hate it in novels, its just super frustrating.

5) A word/phrase that you learned because of its use in a book
I learned the word ‘seldom’ because it was used in the book series Flowers in the Attic by Virginia Andrews. I had no idea what it meant before that or even that it was a word for that matter. So thanks Ms Andrews.

6) Have you ever not read/not completed a reading requirement for school
I actually read every assigned book in school because I generally liked them all.

7) Have you ever (or have wanted to) skipped a chapter from the point of view you weren’t interested in?
I’ve never actually skipped a chapter but during the beginning of Dragonfly in Amber I really didn’t want to read from Roger Wakefield’s perspective, I just wanted all the Jamie/Claire stuff.
aaa

8) Have you ever cancelled social plans to read a book?
I think the more appropriate question here is have I ever had social plans?
aaaa

Alright so that is it for this tag. I tag anyone who had as little ideas as I had this week. I hope you enjoyed and fingers crossed I get the time to see you all soon.

Totally Should’ve Book Tag

Hi there,
So its been a while . . . sorry about that. Anyway, I thought I would kick off the tags for the year by doing the “totally should’ve” book tag. This tag was created by youtuber Emmabooks, you should all go and watch her video it’s super entertaining. Alright so lets just jump right in.

1. Totally should’ve gotten a sequel
For this question I would have to go with every single one of Rainbow Rowell’s books. Now I know they’re contemporary’s which are basically always stand-alones but I really want to know what happens to the characters after the events of the books. Particularly what happens to Eleanor and Park from Eleanor and Park. Every time I finished a Rainbow Rowell book I just don’t feel satisfied, I need more!

2. Totally should’ve had a spin off series
I’m going for a totally obvious one here and saying the Harry Potter series by J.K.Rowling. I would take a spin-off series about literally anything in this universe. My favourite spin-off ideas though would have to be the Marauders and the founders of Hogwarts. But anything, I will take anything!

3. An author who totally should write more books
For this question it would have to be Laini Taylor, author of the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy. I absolutely love her writing style, the worlds she creates and the amazing characters you cannot help but fall in love with. Laini Taylor is someone I think should 100% look to write more books.

4. A character who totally should’ve ended up with someone else
I’m going with America from the Selection series, she shouldn’t have been with who she ended up with . . . because she shouldn’t have been with anyone. Her indecision made it clear to me, and to many others I’m sure, that she didn’t really love either of them that much.

5. Totally should’ve ended differently
Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan definitely should’ve ended differently. (Spoilers btw), Leo still should’ve got Calypso I get that bit, but he should’ve gotten back to Camp Half-Blood and seen everyone again. I don’t want him out in the middle of nowhere, maybe in another century all together. I just want the seven, Nico, Reyna and Calypso to be together again.

6. Totally should’ve had a movie franchise
The Legend trilogy by Marie Lu needs a movie franchise. I think they could do it super well, the story is super interesting so it would be a hit and I think there are a tonne of actors that could do a really good job playing those characters. Also there isn’t that much they could potentially screw up.

7. Totally should’ve had a TV show
I think the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas should be made into a TV show. The series is amazing and there is so much detail that I just don’t think a good book to movie adaptation would be possible, but they could definitely do a TV show well.

8. Totally should’ve had only one point of view
Allegiant by Veronica Roth because the dual POV meant everything sucked.

9. Totally should have a cover change
The Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout is in desperate need of a cover change. I mean they are seriously hideous and don’t reflect the alien awesomeness that lies within.

10. Totally should’ve kept the original covers
Now this is going to sound a bit weird by the Vampire Academy should’ve kept their original covers. The new covers are just the same but with a VA over the top and a weird colour. At least with the old romance novelly covers I could differentiate!

11. Totally should’ve stopped at book one
I’d have to say Delirium by Lauren Oliver for this one. Delirium I super enjoyed, Pandemonium I enjoyed less and Requiem I could not get into at all.

Alright so that is all for the totally should’ve book tag. I tag anyone whose idea bank is as empty as mine is.

The Joy of Christmas Book Tag

Happy Christmas Eve! Sorry for not introducing but I’m just too excited! It’s T-Minus 12 hours and — minutes until Christmas is here. As you may know, Christmas for me is the best time of the year and always will be my absolute favourite thing. So on this most amazing day I thought I’d do the Joy of Christmas Book Tag for you all. It was created by Samatha at the YouTube channel Novels and Nonesense, so go check out her channel. Alright well lets just jump right in.

1) Anticipation: The Christmas excitement is real, what book release(s) are you most anticipating?
It would 100% be Lady Midnight, the first book in Cassandra Clare’s new Dark Artifices series. It was supposed to come out this year but got pushed to April 2016 and I am so excited for it!
13541054

2) Christmas Songs & Carols: What book or author can you not help but sing praises for?
The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. Is there even any other series that deserves such a high level of praise? I don’t think so.
51i-XYWlxGL._SX304_BO1,204,203,200_

3) Gingerbread Houses: What book or series has wonderful world building?
Right this is tricky, because so many books have wonderful world building. It’s going to have to be a tie I think. It’s between the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas or Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. Both are beautifully created and developed worlds.

4) A Christmas Carol: Favorite classic or one that you want to read
I’d have to go with, and I’m not sure if this actually counts, but To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee would be my favourite classic. I know, it’s a kinda cliche one but I love the way it’s written and the metaphors around equality.
715VLP6M-OL

5) Christmas Sweets: What book would you love to receive for Christmas?
Oh, there are just so many! I think for right now though I’ll say Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, the third book in the Outlander series. Just talking about it before has ignited it fresh in my mind!
Gabaldon-Voyager-220x332

6) Candles in the Window: What book gives you that warm fuzzy feeling?
Any Stephanie Perkins book ever! Also Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. Just, contemporary’s man.

7) Christmas Trees & Decorations: What are some of your favorite book covers?
Definitely the illustrated Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and the 20th anniversary Outlander. They are two that I’m in love with right now.

8) Christmas Joy: What are some of your favorite things about Christmas And/Or some of your favorite Christmas memories?
The decorations are my favourite part I think. That and Christmas lunch. In my family we have an entire day for decorating the house and we always watch Elf and I love that. I think another one of my favourite things is that every year my sisters and I decorate our names on a piece of paper to put next to our sacks so we know which presents are ours.

Alright so that is it for the Joy of Christmas Book Tag! I hope you enjoyed it and feel free to comment your answers down below. I tag anyone who loves Christmas as much as I do.

All I Want for Christmas Tag

Hi there,
So I know what you’re thinking, “it’s not even Decemeber yet!” I know, I know, but I’m just too excited to not begin the festive tags. Today I’ll be doing the All I want for Christmas book tag, a tag created by youtuber Sasha; her channel is really incredible, she’s creative and funny and loves the same books as me so go check out her channel! Alright so lets just get started I guess.

1) What fictional character do you want Santa to leave under your Christmas tree?
Jamie Fraser. No question.

2) What character do you want to kiss under the mistletoe?
Once again Jamie Fraser. He is the love of my life so who else would I want to kiss under the mistletoe?

3) You write your Christmas list for Santa, what are the top 5 books on it?
Alright the top five books on my list this year are: Voyager by Diana Gabaldon
Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
The Martian by Andy Weir
Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson
Winter by Marissa Meyer

4) It’s secret Santa at Hogwarts, what do you most want to recieve?
Oh wow, now this is tough because there are so many amazing magical Christmas items to get. I suppose I would love a wizards chess board or a riding broom! Both would be amazing to get as presents.

5) You get to the spend the day with the characters and movie adaptation actors from one fandom, what do you pick?
This would have to be Harry Potter, I love both the characters and the actors and a day with them would be like a dream come true, I couldn’t imagine a better Christmas!

6) What fictional animal would you like to replace Rudolph and be able to meet on your roof?
A Hippogriff for sure (I know, more Harry Potter), they are amazingly beautiful creatures and I’d love to be able to ride one, or just pet one.

7) You invite 10 fictional characters to your new years eve party, who do you pick?
Jamie Fraser for sure (I need to kiss him at the countdown obviously)
George Weasley
Isabelle Lightwood
Etienne St Clair (the king of party games)
Celaena Sardothein
Baz
Wolf
Akiva (I wouldn’t have to walk anywhere)
Raffe and Penryn (they could really do with a night off)

8) What character would make a good santa? (Doesn’t have to be appearance, personality counts too)
I’d have to say Hagrid, not only is he lovely and round like Santa, but he would have the best time and children would love his fun spirit.

Alright so that is all for the All I want for Christmas book tag, comment your answers done below because I would love to know your answers. Hope you enjoyed and I’ll see you next time.

The Avengers Book Tag

Hi there,
So as the month draws to a close I’ve decided to grace you all with the Avengers Book Tag. The tag involves questions that each suit a different Avenger. Alright so lets just jump right in.

1) Iron Man / Tony Stark – A book that made you laugh out loud
I have to pick a collection of books for this one; the Percy Jackson and the Olympians and Heroes of Olympus series’. They are hilarious books, because of the character of course, and I laughed my butt off in every one of them.

2) Captain America / Steve Rogers – A book that sends a positive message
I think I’d have to pick Divergent for this question. It really taught me, personally, and I’m sure a lot of other readers that you can be brave, and that you aren’t constricted by societies perceptions of you. It was a really positive message told in a beautifully subtle way.

3) Black Widow / Natasha Romanov – A book with a kick butt female protagonist
Absolutely the Throne of Glass series by the amazing Sarah J. Maas. Celaena is one of the most kick-ass female characters I have ever read of. Her bravery and her love for her family and her friends is what makes her so special.

4) Hawkeye / Clint Barton – An underrated book you wish more people would pay attention to
I think I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson is pretty underrated. It is the most beautifully poetic book and the characters are incredibly well developed. I love this book and more people should definitely read it.

5) Hulk / Bruce Banner – A book that made you incredibly angry
I actually have an entire series for this question. The Shiver series by Maggie Steifvater is a collection of books that made me very angry! The characters are so frustrating, particularly because the two main characters are not only annoying but boring. The story itself was actually really unique and one of the only books involving werewolves that I got into, the characters just made me want to tear my hair our.

6) Thor – A book with a character who’s strength you admired
Cassie from The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancy is a character with incredibly admirable strength. She lost the only people in the world she loved: her mother and father both died and her brother was taken away. Nothing stopped her though, not the fact that there were unidentifiable aliens and the fact that she was completely and utterly alone in the world and would probably die. She kept going and I love that about her.

7) BONUS: Loki – A book with a twist or surprise that tricked you
Definitely Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. Oh man, the twist at the end of that book. I was so shocked by that and I actually felt personally betrayed. I was not expecting it at all and I particularly liked said character that it involved. It was a really big shock.

Alright so that is it for my Avengers Book Tag. I tag anyone that wants to do this tag and I especially tag all those people that love the Avengers as much as I do. Feel free to leave your answers in the comments below.

Spring Book Tag

Hi there,
So at the moment I am in the glorious season of Spring . . . but most other countries are in Autumn. I’ve seen a bunch of Autumn book tag’s going around, a lot that have Halloween themed questions, so I thought I do the Autumn book tag but fiddle the questions around to be relatable to Spring. Alright so lets just jump right in.

1) What is your favourite thing about Spring?
Definitely the fact that the heat is slowly coming back and thawing me out of my winter frost. I absolutely love the sun and seeing it come back just makes my cold heart warm.

2) What book reminds you of finishing school?
I’d have to say the Percy Jackson and Olympians series. It takes place during a summer camp so it definitely reminds me of school ending.

5169728

3) What cover reminds you of Spring?
The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancy book cover. I think it’s because of my favourite part of Spring! The sun is rising over the trees and it looks so warm and full of colour.

fifth-wave

4) What is you favourite horror/Halloween story?
I don’t read that many horror stories so I’d have to say Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake. It was actually pretty scary, there were a lot of people being cut in half by a ghost. It was a brilliant book though.

Anna-Dressed-in-Blood-Kendare-Blake

5) What is your favourite horror/Halloween film?
I’ve only ever seen one horror film actually, Psycho by Alfred Hitchcock so I’d have to say that. It was a fantastic film as well, the cinematography was incredible.

psycho

6) What Spring book release are you looking forward to most?
Winter by Marissa Meyer, the final book in the Lunar Chronicles. I am so looking forward to this, I absolutely loved the first three books in the series. Really super nervous about how this will end though.

winter

7) What Spring movie release are you looking forward to?
Mockingjay Part II!! I am so excited for this film! But also really sad that it’s ending and because of the stuff that was happening. The first three films in this series were really good and I am super looking forward to this film.

mockingjay part 2

8) What are three books you plan to read this Spring?
I hope to finally get to Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas this Spring! I’m also looking forward to reading The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. The final book I’ll be looking to read is The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancy, the second book in the Fifth Wave series.

Alright so that is it for my Spring book tag for today. I hope you enjoyed and feel free to leave your own answers in the comments down below.

The Seven Deadly Sins Book Tag

Hi there,
So I just finished the second book in the Outlander series: Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon. And it was amazing! I was going to do a booktalk but the book is 900+ pages and will take me a good year to write out all the detail I would go into. So instead here is another book tag: the seven deadly sins book tag.

GREED—What is your most inexpensive book? What is your most expensive book?
The most inexpensive book I own is a Virginia Andrews book (that I cannot remember the name of) that was only $2. So I brought all five in the series for only $10. The most expensive book is, I believe, my twentieth anniversary edition of Outlander which was like $50, maybe?

WRATH—What author do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Definitely Veronica Roth. I loved her and then she went and did . . . that, and it was not okay.

GLUTTONY—What book have you deliciously devoured over and over with no shame whatsoever?
Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone by J.K.Rowling. I re-read it every now and then because I love it so much. And I will be re-reading it yet again in October because I brought the special illustrated version to peruse and enjoy.

SLOTH—What book have you neglected reading due to laziness?
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. I have owned it now for about 2 and a half years . . . I’ve had too little motivation to read this and it remains on my shelf.

PRIDE—What book do you most talk about in order to sound like a very intellectual reader?
Usually either To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee or a Jodi Piccoult book. Usually though I’m not trying to sound intellectual because I just want people to read the books I love more than anything.

LUST—What attributes do you find most attractive in male or female characters?
I love the Peeta and Jem type characters in novels. I just love when they are so kind and compassionate. I also love when they’re funny and sarcastic and it’s even better when they’re really good fighters.

ENVY—What books would you most like to receive as a gift?
At the moment it would be Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children or the Mara Dyer series. I’ve been wanted to read them for ages but haven’t gotten around to reading them, sadly.

Alright so that is it for the seven deadly sins book tag. Feel free to comment your answers down below.

The Reader Problems Tag

Hi there,
Today is one of the sunniest day I’ve experienced in a long time, so naturally I’m inside blogging for you guys. Today I bring you another tag post that I saw done over on Shannon’s blog, you should all go check it out because she is amazing. Alright so the tag today is all about problems that we face as readers because, as you probably know, there are quite a few. So lets jump right in.

1) You have 20,000 books on you TBR, how on Earth do you decide what to read next?
I have a few ways of deciding what next to read. It often depends on what I previously read, because if it’s a book that requires mourning I’ll pick up a contemporary. Usually though I just read whatever I’m feeling and if it’s a choice between two I flip a coin.

2) You’re halfway through a book and you’re just not loving it, do you quit or are you committed?
I usually commit and keep going, just because if I stop I’ll either never go back to it or It’ll take me a really long time. I’ve also found with a lot of books that they’re best past the halfway point.

3) The end of the year is coming and you’re so close, yet so far away, from completing your goodreads challenge. Do you try and catch up and how?
No I wouldn’t, I’d just leave it and try the challenge the next year. If I was 5 books or less then probably but other than that no, it doesn’t bother me that much to not complete it.

4) The covers of a series you love. Do. Not. Match. How do you cope?
I have a couple series where the covers do not match and I just deal with it but sometimes when I’m gazing at my shelf in awe (as we all do) I’m disgusted by the sight.

5) Everyone and their mother loves a book you can’t stand? Who do you bond with other shared feelings?
Long story short, I don’t. I usual revel in the fact that I’m different for a little while and then slowly get saddened by the fact they have this common love that I don’t share. But to be honest I find it worse when I love a book everyone else can’t stand.

6) You are reading a book in public and are about to start crying, how do you deal?
Again I don’t. If I’m going to cry in public I’ll just cry. My philosophy is that I’ll never see those people again in my life, they mean nothing to me, so why let it bother me?

7) A sequel of a book you love just came out but you’ve forgotten a lot from the prior novel, what do you do?
I usually youtube a book review for it because booktubers generally give a lot of detail for the plot of the novel. If that doesn’t help I’ll skim read the previous book in the hopes of enlightening myself as to what it’s actually about.

8) You do not want ANYONE borrowing your books, how do you politely tell them know?
I’m actually quite rude when it comes to my books. If you ask to borrow them I will outright tell you no, to your face. Unless of course I’ve lent it to someone before you (on the off chance that I trust them enough) then I’ll lie and say my sister is reading it, but sure after them, and hope they forget about it.

9) You’re in a reading slump, how do you get over it?
I get right into contemporary novels. They are quick, light and generally fun. You want to avoid, at all costs, fantasy or dystopian novels and do not start a new series.

10) There are so many new books coming out that you’re dying to read, how many do you actually buy?
Usually all of them. . .

11) After you’ve brought the books, how long so they sit on your shelf unread?
It truly depends on the genre of the book, the mood I’m currently in and whether or not it’s a standalone. If it’s a part of a series I try to get to it as soon as possible to avoid all the spoilers but if it’s a contemporary or a stand-alone I can wait a little longer.

Alright so that is it for the reader problems tag. I hope you enjoyed, feel free to comment your answers below and I tag anyone in the mood to do this tag

Unpopular Opinions Book Tag

Hi there,
So I know I haven’t posted in a while. . . don’t hate me. I just lose track of time and get swallowed up by all the other stuff I have to do. Anyway today I thought I’d really give you guys something to hate me about with the unpopular opinions book tag. This is just a fun little tag revealing all your differences in the book fandoms. Alright lets get started.

1. A Popular Book or series that you didn’t like.
For this question I am going to go with the Maze Runner trilogy by James Dashner. I just really couldn’t get into this series, I felt like I was kept completely in the dark because Thomas was discovering almost nothing. I thought it would get more exciting and grab my interest but it just didn’t.

2. A Popular Book or series that every one else seems to hate but you love.
For this I’m going to choose City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. Just that book, not the series. Everyone I’ve spoken to (and people on the internet) think that the first book in the TMI series is rubbish and you have to push through it because the others are so great. I personally thought the first book rocked, I really loved it.

3. A Love Triangle where the main character ended up with the person you did NOT want them to end up with (warn people for spoilers) OR an OTP that you don’t like.
I’m going to pick a popular OTP for this one and that is Celaena/Dorian from the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas. I love Celaena/Chaol a lot more but everyone seems to ship Celaena/Dorian. I don’t know I find it weird.

4. A popular book Genre that you hardly reach for.
This would be middle-grade fantasy. Which is weird because I actually really like it but I just never read it all that often.

5. A popular or beloved character that you do not like.
Severus Snape. The character who turned the most opinions just couldn’t get mine.

6. A popular author that you can’t seem to get into.
For this question I have to go with Stephanie Meyer. I read Twilight way back when and actually really enjoyed it. Then I read New Moon and everything went downhill. I just got tired of her writing style and just couldn’t get into the rest of her books.

7. A popular book trope that you’re tired of seeing. (examples “lost princess”, corrupt ruler, love triangles, etc.)
Okay for this I will pick something that I actually never like seeing in the first place. It’s the whole “girl meets boy who is really mean to her for 95% of the book but she’s attracted to him and falls in love and it turns out he isn’t really mean and was doing it for this reason”. I hate it. Stop.

8. A popular series that you have no interest in reading.
The Hush Hush trilogy by whoever. It was on my TBR for like a million years but then I lost interest and now I’ll just never read it. Ever.

9. The saying goes “The book is always better than the movie”, but what movie or T.V. show adaptation do you prefer more than the book?
I’m going to go with the movie adaptation for The Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkein. I tried to read this book but it 95% of it was then walking through a forest. It was boring, I couldn’t get into it, the movie was amazing.

Alright so that is it for the Unpopular Opinions Book Tag. I tag anyone who wants to do this tag.

Disney Book Tag

Hi there,
So today I discovered the Disney book tag and, having an infinate and insane love of Disney and books, I just had to do it. The tag was created by youtuber Katytastic, you should check out that video and then the rest of her channel because she is really awesome and has some really good book recommendations. Alright so without further ado, lets get started.

1. The Little Mermaid – a character who is out of their element, a “fish out of water”
Mare from Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard is definitely a character who is a “fish out of water”. She is a commoner from the Stilts and is put into a really unreal situation, going undercover in the palace after she discovers she has a deadly ability. That was one of the funnest “fish out of water” themed books because she just kind of rolled with it.

2. Cinderella – a character who goes through a major transformation
For this question I would have to go with Charlie from The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Charlie started out self-conscious, shy and very co-dependent on others. As the story progressed, particularly towards the end, Charlie was more out spoken and independent and the transformation he went through was really significant in the story.

3. Snow White – a book with an eclectic cast of characters
I’ll have to go with the characters from the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor. There are so many amazing characters in that story, so many we get a point of view from and I loved all the detail in the angels and chimaera. They are really interesting characters and there were such an abundance of them, still giving us pieces of vital information about them.

4. Sleeping Beauty – a book that put you to sleep
All I Know Now by Carrie hope Fletcher, but not because it was boring. Carrie is one of my all time favourite youtubers and reading her book I imagined her voice. Her inspiring words just washed over me and really calmed me greatly. I loved the entire book and I also felt sleepy and at piece while I was reading it.

5. The Lion King – a character who had something traumatic happen to them in childhood
What character from YA literature didn’t have something traumatic happen to them in childhood? I suppose I have to pick one though so I’m going to choose Ruby from the Darkest Minds trilogy (if you haven’t read the series skip to the next question there will be spoilers). Ruby was only 10 I think when she was taken from her home to Thurmond, the worst camp there was for children like her. Before that she literally erased herself from her parents memories and had to live with that for the rest of her life. Then only a year later she erased herself from her best friends memory too. It’s insane! And very traumatic of course.

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
I was very intimidated by A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin when I first picked it up because it is a massive book! It’s around 800-900 pages I think. It was a gorgeously written book though and I loved the story and all the characters. I’m looking forward to reading A Clash of Kings later this year.

7. Aladdin – a character who gets their wish granted, for better or worse
For this question I’ll have to go with Karou from the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor. Basically Karou doesn’t know who she is or where she comes from and wishes to discover that. For better or worse she does and it kind of turns out to be a bit of both.

8. Mulan – a character who pretends to be someone or something they are not
For this one I’ll go with Augustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green just to throw something sad into the mix. I assume you all know the story but if not, leave now. So Augustus Waters gets really really sick. . . with cancer. . . And he can’t be cured. He pretends to be healthy and well for a while to protect Hazel Grace but ends up dying anyway. . . thanks John Green.

9. Toy Story – a book with characters you wish would come to life
Obviously the characters from the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling. The characters in those books are some of my all time favourites and I absolutely wish they could come to life and then bring me back to their world. . . Oh the dreams of me.

10. Disney Descendants – your favorite villain or morally ambiguous character
For favourite villain I choose two groups of villains. The first, the aliens from The Fifth Wave series by Rick Yancy and the second, the angels from the Angelfall trilogy by Susanne Ee. They both really interest me and I love reading about them and learning the ins and outs of how they work. It is really intense reading scenes that include them and I think they’re both so clever, particularly the aliens.

Alright so that is it for the Disney Book tag, I hope you enjoyed it and feel free to comment your own answers down below (not that any of you ever do).
