Disney Book Tag

Disney Book Tag

Hey Black Hearts! We’ve got another book tag to share with you this week. We were tagged by Stephanie from No BS Book Blog to do the Disney Book Tag. Y’all know we love doing these tags and we absolutely could not miss out on doing the Disney Tag. So here we go!

 

1. The Little Mermaid – a character who is out of their element, a “fish out of water”

Ali: Rowe Stanton from This is Falling by Ginger Scott

Debbie: Dovey Beckham from Very Wicked Things by Ilsa Madden Mills.

Tiffany: Nila Weaver from The Indebted Series by Pepper Winters

 

2. Cinderella – a character who goes through a major transformation

Ali: Juliette from the Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi.

Debbie: MacKayla Lane and Dani O’ Malley from Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series.

Tiffany: Ana from Fifty Shades of Grey cause she went from virgin to sex goddess in 2.5 seconds!

 

3. Snow White – a book with an eclectic cast of characters

Ali: Taking on the Dead by Annie Walls, quite possibly the most interesting batch of characters I’ve ever read.

Debbie: Dark Lover by J.R. Ward. I wouldn’t describe the brothers as eclectic but they definitely made an impression on me when I first read Dark Lover.

Tiffany: I’m going to say all the characters from Ker Dukeys’s Broken series… all those characters blew my mind!

 

4. Sleeping Beauty – a book that put you to sleep

Ali: Outlander…

Debbie: Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. Worst book I had to read in high school.

Tiffany: Reading Debbie’s answer reminded me of The Pearl in HS, that always made me sleep.

 

5. The Lion King – a character who had something traumatic happen to them in childhood

Ali: Wow, this is hard because I’ve read so many that fit. Most recently though, the one that stands out is Tank by Carmen Jenner.

Debbie: Sky Davis from Hopeless by Colleen Hoover.

Tiffany: Archer Hale in Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan… I’m getting sad just thinking about it!

 

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

Ali: Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson. He always writes large books, it’s Fantasy, but he’s also a professor in ‘real life’ so he’s super smart. I thought I might not grasp it all but it’s an amazing book and I’m glad I braved it.

Debbie: Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. The paperback was over 1000 pages. It took me like, a year to read it. 

Tiffany: The Sempre Series by JM Darhower, although the book isn’t entirely long the series is and I adore that series.

 

7. Aladdin – a character who gets their wish granted, for better or worse

Ali: Bang & Echo (The Black Lotus Series) by E.K. Blair

Debbie: Katniss Everdeen from the Hunger Games Trilogy.

Tiffany: Father Bell from Priest by Sierra Simone.

 

8. Mulan – a character who pretends to be someone or something they are not

Ali: Ruby from the Darkest Minds series by Alexandra Bracken – I highly recommend this series to any of you YA readers!

Debbie: Catherine ‘Cat’ Crawfield at the beginning of Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress #1) by Jeaniene Frost.

Tiffany: Julz from the Gypsy Brothers by Lili St. Germain.

 

9. Toy Story – a book with characters you wish would come to life

Ali: *Ahem* All the dudes in the Outlaws series by Elle Kennedy.

Debbie: Every Kristen Ashley book. 

Tiffany: This is the HARDEST one… it has to be the men of The Sweet Home series by Tillie Cole.

 

10. Disney Descendants – your favorite villain or morally ambiguous character

Ali: Javier Bernal (The Artist Trilogy and the Dirty Angels Trilogy by Karina Halle) – all day, every day. He’s got an unhealthy amount of evil in him but he still knows love and loyalty.

Debbie: Have to agree with Ali, Javier Bernal. His villainous ways is a definite turn on. 

Tiffany: We are 3 for 3 here, hands down it is Javier Bernal, I have never contemplated knife play as much as I do now… (And I’m a sissy when it comes to pain!)

unpopular opinions book tag

We were tagged by Stephanie from No BS Book Blog  for the ‘Unpopular Opinion Book’ tag, and since we can be picky with our reads and love to express our honest opinions, we thought this would be a fun tag to do. Also, we like to think that the best way to form a friendship between two people is by hating the same thing ;-). Please note that these are solely our opinions and perceptions. Just because we didn’t like a certain book, character or series doesn’t mean you can’t like them. 

 

1.) A Popular Book/Series You Didn’t Like:

Ali: Nine Minutes by Beth Flynn. Honestly, I didn’t make it very far into the book. I didn’t find any of the reactions of the main character believable.  At all. And I certainly don’t see how the “hero” could ever have been lovable or redeemable.

Debbie: Real by Katy Evans. I seriously could not get into this book and gave up around the 45% mark. I’m sure there was supposed to be a story somewhere in there, but I could not find it. Everything (from the story to the characters) felt so flat and uninteresting. 

Tiffany: The Heartless Series by J. Sterling

 

2.) A Book Series That Everyone Hates, But You Love:

Ali: Welcome to the Point series by Jay Crownover. I don’t know that people hate this one, but it’s definitely not as loved as the authors other series.  I, however, love the combination of a horrible city filled with bad people and the good people who love them.

Debbie: I honestly could not think of one so I’ll just go with Fifty Shades of Grey. Most of my book loving friends actually liked/loved this series but everyone else outside of the romance world hates it.

Tiffany: Twilight (cause there are more anti twi-hards then you know)

 

3.) A Love Triangle Where the MC Ended Up With A Person You Didn’t Want Them To End Up With, Or An OTP You Didn’t Like:

Ali: Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Katniss was a fixer, she took care of people. Except one. ONE person loved her and wanted to take care of her yet she picks the guy who needed her to take care of him.  Blech. Here’s a tip for anyone still looking for a man…find one that compliments your strengths, not one who has to rely on all of yours because he lacks so many himself. Harsh?? Maybe. What can I say, I’m a little passionate about this issue.

Debbie: I’ve got two answers for this one and my dislike for these endings is something fierce. First, Avoiding Series by K.A. Linde. Ugh! The way that love triangle ended still grates my skin. Did Lexi really pick the guy who fucked her over for years and did nothing to redeem himself? SMDH. Second, Book Boyfriend series by Erin Noelle. At first, I thought I was OK with who Scarlett ended up with in Euphoria. Then I actually sat back and thought about it, and what I thought was, “WTF. That was some bullshit. No one likes a love triangle to end by default.” Salty. I’m still salty over that shit.

Tiffany: Bang by EK Blair

 

4.) A Popular Book Genre You Rarely Reach For:

Ali: Contemporary books that I KNOW everyone cries at. I’m sorry, but I don’t understand the appeal of wanting to read about cancer kids who die.  That’s just not my idea of a good time.

Debbie: Horror and anything high fantasy. I dig those genres when it comes to movies but I can’t with books. 

Tiffany: Historical Romance 

 

5.) A Popular Beloved Character That You Didn’t Like:

Ali: I’m almost terrified to even answer this one. *Deep breath* Deuce from Undeniable by Madeline Sheehan. I hated that man. From the beginning of book one until the end of book two. I haven’t moved on to book three yet, but I imagine I’ll probably still hate him. I won’t detail why because I don’t want to give spoilers but he just royally pissed me off.

Debbie: Remy from Real by Katy Evans. Women be acting like Remy is the God among fictional male characters. He did nothing for me. Zero. Zilch. Nada. I didn’t care how freaking amazing or hot his body was, the man bored me to death. PS – Ali is dead to me. How dare you not like Deuce. You are dead to me. 😉 

Tiffany: Frankie in Love Hurts by Mandi Beck (I changed my original answer cause Ali threatened our friendship) 

 

6.) A Popular Author You Can’t Seem To Get Into:

Ali: Diana Gabaldon. I tried Outlander twice and DNF’d both times. Then I tried the television series. Yeah, I didn’t fare any better there.

Debbie: Jasinda Wilder. I gave a few of her books a shot but I just can’t click with her writing or characters. 

Tiffany: Maya Banks

 

7.) A Popular Trope You’re Tired Of Seeing:

Ali: Bad parents or non-existent parents.  I get it, there are some bad parents in the world but YA is filled with them.

Debbie: I love reading taboo but can we stop with all the stepbrothers? I get that there were a few successful books that dealt with this subject and some authors want to try to emulate that success, but the stepbrother billionaire/biker/fighter is getting out of hand. Please stahp!

Tiffany: Stepbrother love

 

8.) A Popular Series You Have No Interest In Reading:

Ali: Never, Never by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher

Debbie: After series by Anna Todd. Harry Styles/One Direction fan fiction? No thanks.

Tiffany: Beautiful /Maddox Brothers series  by Jamie McGuire 

 

9.) The Saying Goes “THE BOOK IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN THE MOVIE,” But What Movie/Show Adaptation Do You Prefer More Than The Book?

Ali: Divergent. I read the first two books and they were a’ight, but the movies are so much better. Maybe it’s because of Theo James. YUM!

Debbie: The Perks of Beings a Wallflower. I love melodrama but it seems like this book about suicide, molestation, domestic abuse, homosexuality, drug use, rape and mental issues was a little too melodramatic for me. At least in book form. As for the movie version, I quite liked watching Charlie’s highs and lows while he was in high school.

Tiffany: A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks (cause I can’t remember the book as vividly)
