Disney Princess Book Tag


This is one of those rare situations where I did not actually get tagged for one of these, but I couldn't help myself and had to do it after seeing it surface a couple of times in my reader. The combination of Disney Princesses and books was entirely irresistible. The Disney Princess Tag was originally created by Soudha of Stacks and Cups

3 Princess Facts
1. Jasmine was the first Disney princess I ever loved. I couldn't resist the lure of her being actual royalty and the fact that she has a pet tiger. (I always wanted a pet tiger.)
2. Rapunzel is currently my favorite Disney princess, because I feel like she's the one I'm most like in real life. We both think of ways to keep ourselves occupied when we're alone, enjoy domesticity in all its glory and suffer from panic attacks when we're trying to figure out whether to follow the rules or forge our own paths.
3. Belle and Mulan are the rest of my top three Disney Princesses. I love Belle for her kindness, her brains, her love of literature and her loyalty to those she cares for. I love Mulan for her courage, her strength, and her utter determination to do what she believes to be right.

SNOW WHITE | FAVORITE CLASSIC
I will always give this book as an answer to this question, at least for the foreseeable future - A Little Princess. I fell in love with this story when I was a little girl, and have only grown to love it more and more each time I encounter it.

CINDERELLA | BOOK THAT KEPT YOU READING PAST BEDTIME
I remember being unable to stop reading Queen of Shadows once I'd started it, even though it was already well into the night. It was extremely compelling, as Sarah J. Maas really builds on the foundation of her story and allows it to grow. The characters are developed further, the world expands and the twists and turns are so surprising. I definitely stayed up to finish this book!

AURORA | FAVORITE CLASSIC ROMANCE
The first romance that I ever swooned over was between Almanzo Wilder and Laura Ingalls of the Little House series. I shipped these two before I even knew what that meant. 

ARIEL | BOOK ABOUT MAKING SACRIFICES AND FIGHTING FOR YOUR DREAMS
I was stumped on what to choose for this category, but then Champion came to mind. Both Day and June are forced to make really tough decisions, choices that will affect their lives and the lives of those around them in order to reach the all-important end goal. 

BELLE | BOOK WITH SMART, INDEPENDENT MAIN FEMALE CHARACTER
I'm going to have to go with Strange and Ever After. Eleanor Fitt has always been smart, and she's known how to handle herself well since the first novel. But it's in this series ender where we really get to see her shine! Her intelligence and bravery are her constant companions as she races to outwit the bad guys and keep all her loved ones safe.

JASMINE | BOOK WITH CHARACTER WHO CHALLENGED SOCIAL CONVENTIONS OF HIS/HER WORLD
I'm going to have to go with Conspiracy of Blood and Smoke! Gretchen, after learning the truth about her uncle Dolf and his agenda, and after narrowly escaping with her life, is forced to dive right back into the world of subterfuge, betrayal and violence. And she does it with so much class and style that you just have to admire the gal for fighting for what she believes in!

POCAHONTAS | BOOK WHOSE ENDING WAS A ROLLER COASTER OF EMOTIONS
Oh goodness, I didn’t even hesitate to choose this book! Mockingjay is a book where I was on the edge of my seat the entire time, dying to discover what would happen to Katniss and company. It was just so, so emotional (and it didn’t help that I was reading in the early hours of the morning).

MULAN | BOOK WITH KICK-ASS FEMALE CHARACTER
Hands down, Celaena Sardothien / Aelin Ashryver Galathynius is one of the best female characters I’ve ever read about. In all the books, but particularly Queen of Shadows, she is capable of physical kick-ass feats, but she’s also got an edge mentally and emotionally. I will forever love Celaena / Aelin.

TIANA | BOOK WITH HARD-WORKING & SELF-MADE CHARACTER
Though he may be a villainous sort, Kaz Brekker is definitely a self-made man. He's gone from the lowest rungs to one of the highest positions in the world of gangs and streets and city violence. And his clever resourcefulness and keen ability to lead is demonstrated again and again within the pages of Six of Crows.

RAPUNZEL | BOOK THAT FEATURES AN ARTIST
I'll Give You the Sun features artistic twins Jude and Noah. I was fascinated by how they were both artists with different mediums, and I loved how art played a big role in their lives. I also want to take this moment to mention Karou and Zuzana from the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series, also fascinating, creative and talented individuals.

MERIDA | BOOK THAT FEATURES A MOTHER-DAUGHTER RELATIONSHIP
It might not have been the best mother-daughter relationship, but 99 Days has one that I remember vividly. I think all mother-daughter relationships can be complicated, but when your mom writes a best-selling novel inspired by your real life, it can definitely add something extra difficult to deal with to your lives. 

ANNA & ELSA | BOOK WITH A GREAT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SIBLINGS
Love and Other Foreign Words is, hands down, one of the best sibling relationship portrayals in a novel. It does have a bit of quirkiness, considering the way Josie processes things and how she expresses herself. But it does have a lot of familiar elements of that sibling tie - the rivalry, the possessiveness, the need for growth and adjustment when life changes, the banter, and so much more.

I'm tagging Rachel, Kelly + Morgan!
