(As usual, none of these gifs are mine…)
Though this is very late (when aren’t my tags like, really) I am very excited to do this tag!
I’m dying for the new live-action movie (because seriously is there a better Belle than Hermione Granger herself) but in any case, Belle is my favorite Disney princess of all time, so I’m very excited.
I was tagged by the lovely Icebreaker694 (and I really need more adjectives, I use lovely almost every tag, sorry), but she is one of my favorite humans, not only because she tags me in everything (which I LOVE) but her blog is perfection. Check her out!
(Also, sorry if the gifs don’t seem to match the questions to you, they make sense to me, but my brain makes weird associations).
1. “TALE AS OLD AS TIME” – A POPULAR THEME, TROPE OR SETTING YOU WILL NEVER GET BORED OF READING.
I LOVE redemption stories. To the point that, even when certain characters I like aren’t actually redeemed, I still argue that they CAN be.
This took me so long to find an answer, I don’t really analysis my reading choices or why I like things. But redemption is one of my favorite tropes. I really like stories where a villain teams up with the heroes against a worse villain. And stories where the protagonist/narrator IS the villain. Think Doctor Horrible. But I can never find enough of them. Anyone got anyone recommendations?
(I know the gif doesn’t match with this answer, but romance is a trope right? Also I picked all the gifs before answering, so this should be FUN).
2. BELLE – A BOOK YOU BOUGHT FOR IT’S BEAUTIFUL COVER THAT’S JUST AS BEAUTIFUL INSIDE TOO
These all DEFINITELY fall under the catagory of (partially) cover buy. Time Lord fairytales and Illuminae are definitely new favorites because of it. I haven’t read Hamilton yet, but I’m sure I’ll love it (I am obsessed with the musical after all).
3. BEAST – A BOOK YOU DIDN’T EXPECT MUCH FROM BUT PLEASANTLY SURPRISED YOU.
I haven’t finish this series, but I read this book back in (pause for me to google when it come out because thats when I read it)… 2010! I was 10 years when I read this wow. My dad bought it for me after I finish Percy Jackson since it had just been released and he thought I would like it. I resisted, being a ten year old I didn’t WANT Egyptian mythology I wanted more Percy Jackson. I was halfway through it before I told my dad, hey, this is sort of like Percy Jackson, and my dad was like, uh, its by the same author… My little brain was BLOWN. I never finished the series though… By the time the second book come out I was distracted by other books, and by now I’ll need to re-read this. I want to at some point.
4. GASTON – A BOOK EVERYONE LOVES THAT YOU DON’T
Definitely the Delirium series. Everyone seems to love it and I just…don’t.
5. LEFOU – A LOYAL SIDEKICK YOU CAN’T HELP BUT LOVE MORE THAN THEIR COUNTER PART.
See, when I’m not doing a tag, I can rattle off books in which this is true. When I am doing a tag, I forget every book ever in existence that I have ever come across. After ten minutes of staring at my shelves, I remembered that Twilight is like, the EPITOME of this. I dislike Bella, she irritates me (she was fine in Twilight and Breaking Dawn, I wanted to hit someone throughout New Moon and Eclipse). However, I LOVE every random background character (except for Mike, I want to punch Mike).
6. MRS POTTS, CHIP, LUMIER & COGSWORTH – A BOOK THAT HELPED YOU THROUGH A DIFFICULT TIME OR THAT TAUGHT YOU SOMETHING VALUABLE
I am going with Harry Potter. Because it was the series I read when I transferred from private to public school AND taught me how to read (chapter books at least).
7. “SOMETHING THERE” – A BOOK OR A SERIES THAT YOU WEREN’T INTO AT FIRST BUT PICKED UP TOWARDS THE END.
Funny story with the Infernal Devices. I was in the seventh grade, and Clockwork Princess had just come out. My lab partner was OBSESSED with these books, and recommended them to me. I didn’t know the Mortal Instruments existed. I thought it was just the Infernal Devices. The problem is, I HATE historical fictional. Long story short, I got halfway through Clockwork Angel before giving up. Soon after, I found City Of Bones at the school book fair, loved it, and binge read through to City Of Lost Souls. During the wait for Heavenly Fire, I read Clockwork Angel, and enjoyed it this time around, because I was already attached to the world (and Magnus). It took me a year to get to Clockwork Prince, and I only read Clockwork Princess at the beginning of this year… I know, I suck.
I pre-ordered City Of Heavenly Fire, but I STILL haven’t read it because I was halfway through when I first bought it, then left for camp and had other obligations and by the time I had time to read again, I had forgotten most of what was happening, but its a LONG book to re-read half. So I haven’t yet… It IS one of my before-school-starts goals though, because I also want to get to Lady Midnight. Which I also pre-ordered two copies of…
8. “BE OUR GUEST” – A FICTIONAL CHARACTER YOU’D LOVE TO HAVE OVER FOR DINNER
I would love to either:
- Have the golden trio + the Weasley family over, because I love Harry Potter and I want to meet EVERY character I swear.
- The Raven Cycle gang, because I love these people, seriously. Though Noah would have to come as well because he is my CHILD.
Tag (You’re IT)
(Be warned, doing this tag got the ENTIRE soundtrack stuck in my head.)
