Snow White

This Book (like the Movie) Started It All

Favorite Debut Book From an Author

.

Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody

For me, this year, this one goes to Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody.  I know there are some mixed opinions about this book out there, but I really liked the characters and the world and the story and basically everything, so I’m on board with everything Amanda Foody wants to write.

–> my review.

Cinderella

A Diamond in the Rough

Just Like Cinderella, You Either Didn’t Expect Much Out of This Character in the Beginning But They Turned Out to Be a Total Gem

.

Princess Glisselda // Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

At the beginning of this book, I thought Princess Glisselda was just going to be a typical airhead princess.  By the middle, I still thought she was a bit silly but I ALSO believed she was 100% going to betray Seraphina.  By the end I was #TeamGlisselda and so proud of her choices. <3

–> my review.

Aurora

Sleeping Beauty

A Book That Makes You Sleepy, Or Just Couldn’t Hold Your Attention

.

Anna Dressed In Blood by Kendare Blake

This book was just not for me.  I went in expecting this big, epic ghost story and got landed with a dumb romance.  I know this book is SO well-loved by just about everybody but, ack, no thanks.  It took some real willpower to get through it.

–> my review.

Divider

Ariel

Under the Sea

A Book With a Water/Ocean Setting

.

Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama

While this is definitely a ghost story (despite its mermaid packaging) there is quite a bit of water and ocean present.  Includes mermaids (see, there are some), people who drown on dry land, and all sorts of good stuff.  I loved this book and definitely recommend it.

–> my review.

Divider

Belle

Beauty and Books

Name a Book With the Best Bookworm/Book Lover

.

Kelsea Glynn // The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

Kelsea is obsessed with books.  Growing up, they were her only friends.  When she arrives at the palace, she is shocked and disgusted at the lack of available books and immediately gets one of her men to create a public library for her people.  She has more politically pressing matters, but personally this is her top priority.

–> goodreads.

Divider

Jasmine

The Thief and the Princess

Name A Book With An Unlikely Love Story (Either in Terms of Romance, or a Book You Didn’t Expect To Love So Much)

.

Henry & Flora // The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough

He’s a white boy living with a privileged family who loves composing music.  She an African-American girl from the poor side of town who wants to fly airplanes.  It’s the 1930s.  Music brings them together like magic and they are willing to fight, or die.  This book is so perfect it will make your heart melt.

–> my review.

Divider

Pocahontas

Real Life Princess

Name A Book That is Based On a Real Life Person You Want to Read or Have Read

.

Under the Black Flag: The Romance and the Reality of Life Among the Pirates by David CordinglyUnder the Black Flag by David Cordingly

Not fiction, but… after watching Black Sails I got kind of obsessed with learning more about Anne Bonny.  I researched forever trying to find books and 1.) there are not a lot of books about her? and 2.) Ones that exist sound really boring.  Under the Black Flag was a good non-fiction read about a lot of different pirates and their lifestyle.

–> goodreads.

Divider

Mulan

The Princess That Saved Her Country

Name the Fiercest Heroine You Know

.

Zaira // The Tethered Mage by Melissa Caruso

At the moment, I am really digging this fire warlock from The Tethered Mage.  Zaira’s not the main character, but she ought to be because she’s clever and has an amazing gives-no-f’s attitude and I love her.  She also has the power to level a whole city with her magic, so she’s got that going for her.

–> goodreads.

Divider

Tiana

The Princess With the Coolest and Most Diverse Crew

Name A Diverse Book, Whether it is a Diverse Set of Characters (Like Tiana’s Group of Naveen, Louis, Ray, and More) or Just Diverse In General

.

Echo After Echo by Amy Rose Capetta

We’ve got Jewish characters, a Latina character, gay characters (lesbian and bi too!).  We have characters at different levels of mental stability.  It is, after all, the theatre.  Echo After Echo may not be the most stand-out diverse book, but it does have diversity and it’s also just brilliant.

–> my review.

Divider

Rapunzel

Let Your Longggggg Hair Down

Name the Longest Book You Have Ever Read

.

A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin

According to Goodreads, my longest is The Complete Works of William Shakespeare but if I’m being honest with myself, I think I skipped all the poetry.  The award, then, goes to A Storm of Swords, book three in Martin’s A Song of Fire and Ice series.  No surprise at all that a George R. R. Martin book comes up first (and second, and third).

–> goodreads.

Divider

Merida

I Determine My Own Fate

A Book Where There is No Love Story/ Interest or Isn’t Needed

.

Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde

Okay, so there’s sort of interests in love and that sort of thing in this book… but I’m using it because Main Female Lead keeps trying to kill Main Male Lead and the romance there is non-existent.  It’s hilarious.  She does apologize about it though… then tries to kill him again.  Obviously the best way to pick up guys.

–> goodreads.

Divider

Elsa & Anna

Frozen Hearts

A Book in a Winter/ Cold Setting

.

Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer

Nothing like the moon moving to change everything you know about life.  The full second half (or so?) of this book is in an extended winter that I want to say starts in September?  And it’s crazy cold with little to use for heat.  I read this book in September while it was 80 degrees outside and I was still cold.

–> goodreads.

Divider

Moana

How Far I’ll Go

A Character That Goes On a Journey

.

The Gunslinger by Stephen King

Oh my loves, meet my favorite genre: epic fantasy.  I know a lot of people don’t like journey books, but I love them.  So many potential adventures!  For today I’ll feature The Gunslinger and in general Stephen King’s Dark Tower series, since I”m re-reading it with my husband.  It’s better than the movie!

–> my review.

  1. Oooh this is such an awesome book tag! I’m definitely going to do it soon 😀
    My favorite Disney princess… that’s a hard question! When I was little I liked Aurora because she wore a pink dress and it’s my favorite color? LOL. I guess my favorite Disney princess at the moment is probably Mulan, because she’s actually from a Chinese poem and I studied it at school a few years ago. It’s interesting how Disney adapted the story, and Mulan is super badass so I love her hahaha.

      Mulan is a great favorite, and one that you don’t hear a lot of people naming!!! :). I think it’s so hard to pick, too… there’s so many of them! I plot them into Pre-MNy Childhood, My Childhood, and Modern and pick three, haha. Aurora is my favorite Pre-My Childhood princess… although as you can see from the featured image… I liked the blue dress. 😉

  2. This looks like a pretty cool tag! I’m not really a Disney Princess person, but I do like Mulan and Rapunzel a lot! They’re my favourite Disney movies. 😀
    (Also, I’ve tagged you for the Liebster award, if you’d like to do it ;D)

    • Amber

      Ooo, thank you for the tag – I’ll pop right over and take a look! 😉

      I LOVE Rapunzel, which I never expected since the original story is dreary and cliche… but Disney made her the funniest, most-likable princess. And Eugene the best prince, IMHO. 🙂

    • Amber

      Moana was really great. 🙂 I think the whole feel of that film was amazing, and I LOVED (!!!) the ending and I really liked how the kept to most of the mythology rather than whitewashing it. Huge fan! 😀

  3. What a fun tag, I love it! 🙂 I’m so glad to hear you read and enjoyed The Game of Love and Death, this book has been on my TBR for, AGES, ahah, thank you for reminding me that I need to read it 😀
    I don’t know which one is my favorite princess ahah, I think maybe I’d pick Belle 😛

    • Amber

      Belle is my favorite from my childhood for sure! Great choice!

      I only read an ARC version of The Game of Love and Death, so I’m sure it only gets better! I’d definitely recommend it.

    • Amber

      Please do steal it! I couldn’t help myself when I came across it. :). Link back so I can read your answers!!! 🙂
