The Fairy Tale Book Tag
Welcome to Fairy tale February! This is the first of a few special posts that I have put together for this month. Bloggers love a good book tag and so I decided to have a go at creating my own. I really hope that you enjoy it if you decide to give it a go!
Fairy Tale Tag Rules
- Answer as many questions as you can!
- Tag five fairy tale lovers.
- Please tag me as the creator.
- Have fun!
1 – Beauty and the Beast
“He’s no monster” – A character that makes mistakes but redeems themselves in the end.
Morgan from The Dresden Files. He always does what he thinks is right but he is blinded by his own prejudice. We learn a lot about his in Turn Coat and he really is a great character.
2 – Sleeping Beauty
“Once upon a dream” – A book that sent you to sleep.
Allegiant by Veronica Roth, which is book three in the Divergent trilogy. I was so disappointed with this book! Suddenly there is a dual perspective and although it makes sense why later in the book I found it excruciatingly painful. This is a book that I desperately wanted to DNF but hoped that the ending would be worth the torture of pushing through to the end.
3 – The Little Mermaid
“Nothing gave her greater pleasure than to hear about the world of human beings up above” – A book that excites you or is full of adventure.
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss! It is one of the best fantasy books of all time and I love following Kvothe’s adventure. It is a must read book for any fantasy fan. One day the trilogy will be complete, until then I will lovingly cling to the first two books.
4 – Cinderella
“Perhaps the greatest risk any of us will ever take is to be seen as we really are” – A book where a character is mistreated.
Rue from The Hunger Games. She is mistreated by the society that forces her to compete in competition to the death as well as labouring at age 12 in her district. This could apply to most dystopian characters but I will always carry a special torch for little Rue.
5 – Peter Pan
“Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away, and away means forgetting” – A book that you will never forget!
I’m afraid we are back to The Dresden Files for this one. Changes is one of the best books that I have ever read. I laid on my bed, staring at the ceiling and needed a break before I could move on to the next book. In fact, I didn’t want to read anymore as I needed time to get over what I had just experienced.
6 – The Ugly Duckling
“It is only with the heart that one can see clearly, for the most essential things are invisible to the eye” – A book or character that you love but others don’t see the same way.
Mammoth by Jill Baguchinsky. This was the first ARC I was ever given and I thought it was brilliant. The protagonist, Natalie, seemed to be a younger version of myself in many ways. A geeky girl who loves dinosaurs! Although I know a lot of people enjoyed it, it never received the hype I think it deserved. My review is here if you want to know more about it!
7 – The Princess and the Pea
“She had felt one pea all the way through twenty mattresses and twenty more feather beds” – A book or character that made you uncomfortable.
Tamlin from the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. I don’t want to go into too much detail in case you haven’t read the books. Let’s just say that I didn’t like the way he behaved in certain parts of the series….
8 – Little Red Riding Hood
“Oh Granny, what big teeth you have!” – A book or character that wasn’t what they seemed.
This is difficult as I am torn between so many characters!!! I think I will go with an obvious choice but a classic – good old Professor Quirrell from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
9 – Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
“I’ll take a chance for her” – A book with great friends.
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers. Another one of my favourite books of all time! The crew of the Wayfarer are awesome and are like a little family. If I could transport myself into a book there are few places that I would rather be than around the dinner table with Dr Chef, Kizzy, Jenkx, Sissix, Ashby and even Corbin.
10 – Alice in Wonderland
“Who in the world am I? – A book about identity or a character who questions themselves.
The first book that I read this year was The Other Side of Lost by Jessi Kirby and it is all about finding yourself. The main character breaks free from her social media stardom in order to truly find herself again after putting on a front for so long to gain followers. It is a really refreshing read and was the perfect start to my year. My review is here if you want to know more.
Here are the five people I have chosen to tag, although if you are reading this then you can consider yourself tagged too!
Thank you for reading and I am looking forward to your answers!
