Disney, the place every single one of us can share our memories about *hopefully*. If you haven’t been there, hopefully you’ll learn a little about today in this post! I was tagged to do this by the incredible, lovely
Hermione Victoria over at Addlepates and Booknerds. Seriously guys, I have no clue why I keep wanting to call her Hermione! Seriously, while typing this I typed in Hermione initially and wrote the whole post and when I was reading it, I was just like “WAIT! HER NAME IS NOT HERMIONE!”
Anyways, aside from that little bit of weirdness, I recently posted my Bookzillan Monthly for November and said that I would try to participate in Blogmas. Well guess what my loves? Here I am trying to post daily so I can sort of kind of fit into this amazing thing called Blogmas, yeah?
And without further ado, let’s go!
1. The Little Mermaid—A character who is out their element, a “fish out of water.”
I am going to take this to a whole new level y’all. I am going to say Cinder from the Lunar Chronicles, because heck, she is out of her element. At the beginning, she is just a regular old cyborg lost queen but she works so much better as a mechanic.
*SPOILER* And then when she becomes queen, she isn’t the perfect queen material, so she’s making history. #lunarchronicles #lunarforever
2. Cinderella—A character who goes through a major transformation
Am I cruel? I always thought America was average regarding appearances. But this–this America, she is beautiful down to the last freckle. The scruffy, soft hair, the pale skin, and the humongous green eyes are winning for me. She is BEAUTIFUL. I feel you, Maxon. I always want you for myself, Maxon 😛 .
Anyways, I choose America for this since she went through a major transformation in her life from being a five to being a one and becoming a queen though she was a poor singer to start with.
And having to choose between Maxon and Aspen. Oh, I won’t say anymore.
3. Snow White—A book with an eclectic cast of characters
I try to use one book only once in each tag but I have to say The Lunar Chronicles. I can’t skip it up. I’m sorry. But since I’m trying not to be too repetitive, I’m going to go with the Heroes of Olympus though the Lunar Chronicles is my first choice.
Isn’t that diverse??
4. Sleeping Beauty—A book that put you to sleep
Ugh. Oh, I must give you this answer and I do not regret anything at all. Vitro by Jessica Khoury was such a drag and a snoozefest.
SO BORING. I would never recommend it to anyone.
5. The Lion King—A character who had something traumatic happen to them in childhood
So many answers, so many, so many!! I’m trying to avoid using Harry Potter since I use that way too much, so I’m going to use Day from Legend. He is beautiful, he is the sun, and he is the light that forms me.
Beautiful. I am heartsick. #heismylight
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
Aggggh, everyone knows the answer to this, Throne of Glass!!
7. Aladdin—A character who gets their wish granted, for better or for worse
Okay, so I’m going to say Sadie Kane from the Kane Chronicles. I also have a second answer for this, as in The Death Cure. I really do try not to repeat any books or authors per tag, but Rick Riordan has written some awesome stuff, admit it. Sadie wished to be with Walt and Anubis and in the end in the Serpent’s Shadow, *SPOILER*they sort of merged.
So yes, Sadie got her wish granted, and very much for the better.
My second answer for this is the Death Cure by James Dashner. Thomas and his friends all wished for freedom from the Maze and Wicked but I guess they weren’t expecting Wicked completely leaving them off to fend for themselves in the city, and I guess Thomas wasn’t expecting *SPOILER* them to come and ask for his, ahem, brain. (!!)
Ahem, cough cough, *swoon*
8. Mulan—A character who pretends to be something or someone they are not
Tris from Divergent. She was definitely not a brave, kick-ass fighter like Roth tried to depict her. She was a small girl growing up, finding her place. Though Allegiant wasn’t all too amazing if you know what I am talking about.
9. Toy Story—A book with characters you wish would come to life
Oh, ha ha ha, this is like almost every good book I read. I’m not going to say Throne of Glass, but here it goes, HARRY POTTER MY LOVE. This is obvious and expected, so chill.
Isn’t this the cutest?! Just look at little Won-won. ❤
10. Disney Descendants—Your favorite villain or morally ambiguous character
I really want to say Bellatrix Lestrange but I don’t want to copy Vic though she is excellent at choosing 😀 so I am going to pick another Harry Potter one. Please bear with me, I know you know I love HP.
Not Voldemort, but Tom Riddle. Voldemort is ruthless, unmerciful and disastrously a monster. Tom Riddle is a teenager finding his place, who is certainly a villain, very ambitious, and obviously morally ambiguous. I mean, his incentives aren’t unclear, but his personality and his mindset is very morally ambiguous.
I tag anyone and everyone who wants a little bit of Disney in their blog 😀 or just wants to do it. Go ahead and leave me a link though!
Have you ever been to Disney? What was your favorite question in the tag?
