The Disney Princess Book Tag

Sunday, August 30, 2015 with 2 comments
What is it about tags that makes them so addicting?! I knew the moment I saw this tag on my feed that I had to participate! Thank you Liza @ Reading With ABC for posting this, or I may not have stumbled across this. Am I the only one who hasn't participated in this tag yet?! Better late than never, I suppose.

Snow White
Name Your Favorite Classic

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. I read this book both in high school and in college, and I loved it both times. It always gets me thinking about what the monster would be like had Victor (or anyone) bothered to treat him humanely.

A Book That Kept You Reading Past Your Bedtime

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. This is the first book that came to mind, as I remember making the mistake of starting this book before bed. Before I knew it, the sun was coming up and I had finished reading it in one sitting - I never got the chance to sleep!

A Book About Making Sacrifices & Chasing Dreams

The Fire Horse Girl by Kay Honeyman. This book is about a girl who gives up everything to leave her small village in China to pursue her dream of going to the U.S. Once there, she even disguises herself as a boy and risks her life working for a crime boss, ultimately working not only to earn her own freedom, but the freedom of others, as well.

A Book With A Smart & Independent Character

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead. Sydney is incredibly smart, and while she's an alchemist, it's apparent from the very beginning that she is an independent thinker, choosing to trust her judgement and experience rather than just blindly siding with the alchemists.

A Book With A Character Who Challenged Social Conventions

Cinder by Marissa Meyer. Cinder was the first character to pop into my head when I read this category, and I don't think I could've picked anyone else. In a society that shuns cyborgs for being "unnatural," Cinder is forced to go by performing her duties as a mechanic while keeping her head down, especially around her stepmother, who loathes her. When her step-sister Peony gets infected with a deadly infectious illness, however, Cinder will do whatever it takes to try and save her, even if it involves losing her heart along the way to a prince she knows she can never have.

A Book Whose Ending Was A Roller Coaster of Emotions

The Mad Scientist's Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clarke. Well, actually, the whole book was a roller coaster of emotions for me. It takes place in a future where humans and androids co-exist, though androids are not really thought of as people. The main character, Cat, grows up with the android, Finn, who seems incredibly human, and has to figure out exactly what her feelings for him are. I totally cried reading this one, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.

A Book With A Kick-Ass Female Character

Shadows of Asphodel by Karen Kincy. The main character, Ardis, is a Chinese-American mercenary who can kick total ass. She's strong-willed and independent, and despite her job, she remains a good person at heart.

A Book With A Hardworking & Self-Made Heroine

Moon Called by Patricia Briggs. Mercy Thompson is totally a self-made woman - she works as a mechanic and owns her own trailer. She may not be loaded, but she's found a way to earn money while doing what she loves, and she's able to support herself and live comfortably without needing to rely on anyone else. To me, that is the definition of self-made.
A Book With An Artist

Ink by Amanda Sun. The heroine's love interest, Tomohiro, is an artist whose ink drawings come to life. Also, that cover is a piece of art in and of itself.

Elsa & Anna
A Book With A Great Relationship Between Siblings

Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne. I really liked the relationship between Dean & Alex in this series - even though they didn't always get along, you could tell that they really loved each other. They also respected each other enough to let each other make their own decisions.
