Hello everyone, today marks my return to my book-tags pile.
I have several book tags I have to do and I’m really excited to do them all, but I’m going to start with The Disney Book Tag. Thank you Trisha @ The Bookgasm Blog for this tag! ^_^ She tagged me back in November, but I had been procrastinating.
Anyway, let’s get to it!
The Little Mermaid—A character who is out their element, a “fish out of water.”
Cath in Fangirl (Rainbow Rowell). She went to live in college dorm expecting everything to be more or less the same. So when her sister, Wren, left her to be with her new friends, Cather was alone with nothing to do but submerge herself in the internet. I am Cather of course.
Cinderella—A character who goes through a major transformation.
Elend Venture in Mistborn trilogy (Brandon Sanderson). I’ve recently finished the original Mistborn series and oh my… There are glimpses of his old self, but the new Elend is so different with the person I first met in The Final Empire.
On the other hand, there’s also Chaol Westfall (Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas)… but I cannot say more because that’s spoilery.
Snow White—A book with an eclectic cast of characters.
Six of Crows (Leigh Bardugo). What a delightful combination of characters. I love all of them, Jesper, Wylan, Kaz, Inej, Nina, Matthias. I’m really excited that Crooked Kingdom will have Wylan as one of the narrators.
Sleeping Beauty—A book that put you to sleep.
I AM SORRY SANDERSON FANS (that includes myself), but it took me forever to finish Well of Ascension because I kept falling asleep after a few pages.
The Lion King—A character who had something traumatic happen to them in childhood.
Kvothe in The Name of The Wind (Patrick Rothfuss). The Name of the Wind is sort of a biography of Kvothe, and man did he get through a lot.
Beauty and The Beast—A beast of a book (a big book) that you were intimidated by, but found the story to be beautiful.
The Way of Kings (Brandon Sanderson).
I WAS SCARED TO START IT, but now all I want in my life is the third Stormlight book so I could play spot that character and get lost in Roshar.
Aladdin—A character who gets their wish granted, for better or for worse.
This question is so difficult to answer without giving away major spoilers, so I’m gonna go with the obvious.
Be Careful What You Wish For… (RL Stine). The title says it all.
Mulan—A character who pretends to be something or someone they are not.
Macy in The Truth About Forever (Sarah Dessen). She tried so hard to be perfect even though she didn’t enjoy the things she did. There’s nothing wrong with being a perfectionist, but Macy’s problem is that she didn’t want to be but was forced by her circumstances. I had been there, and sometimes I found myself slipping back into this mode.
Toy Story—A book with characters you wish would come to life.
Heroes of Olympus (Rick Riordan).
Why? Because Percy and Nico and Piper and Thalia and Leo and Reyna and Hazel and everyone else. Because I’m so attached to those characters that I’ll keep reading whatever Riordan thrown at me as long as he gives me more of them.
Disney Descendants—Your favorite villain or morally ambiguous character.
I’m going to cheat and mention five. Caine in Gone series (Michael Grant), Lord Ruler in Mistborn (Brandon Sanderson), Cersei Lannister in A Game of Thrones (George RR Martin), Hrathen in Elantris (Brandon Sanderson). Possibly also Aeduan in Truthwitch (Susan Dennard), even though I haven’t finished that book I’m saving this space for him.
Spread the love
I’m tagging some bloggers I recently followed ^_^

P.S. It’s totally fine if you don’t want to do it or if you have done it before. 🙂

This is such a good tag idea – absolutely loved your response! Your answer to the Disney Descendants question pretty much summed up my indecisive-ness when it comes to thinking of my own characters for tags like this!
A wonderful stockpile of characters//books though – was so fun to see who you paired with with who!
Thank you! 🙂 It was a fun tag, but some of the questions were actually quite difficult to answer.
Elend really is practically a different person by the end of the trilogy. I still really liked it, but the Well of Ascension is my least favorite of the original Mistborn trilogy. I can see how it might take someone a long time to read it. The pacing was much slower than the first and third books.
I know right. I’m not sure I like the new Elend Venture more than his old self. I know he had to change, but it’s sometimes weird not to have him acting awkward and be the idealist person he was.
Ditto. It’s definitely the buildup book. We need it in order to get to the awesomeness that is hero of ages.
Yes, it still felt strange sometimes, but at least it was clear when/why most of the changes in Elend’s personality took place.
I think I heard somewhere that Sanderson had a hard time with the Well of Ascension’s plot. I think that was still a bit evident in the final version.
I didn’t know that. Indeed, it would make sense if that was true.
Leo coming to life as a real life person would cause my heart to IMPLODE. He is possibly one of my top book boyfriends, I adore him with all my heart. I NEED A LEO IN MY LIFE.
Awww yeah, fellow Leo fan! 😀
He’s a bit too young for me though so I’m going to ship him your way if I ever come across him. Hahaha.
