The Disney Princess Book Tag

Hamlette did this tag awhile back, and I decided to do it because it was simply too fun to pass by. :D  Hamlette apparently snatched it (and the picture below) from Rissi over at Finding Wonderland, who apparently got it from yet another blogger, so . . . Anyway, here are my answers. ;)  (I used Hamlette's idea of pairing the princess with my book answer for each picture.)

(I think credit for this image goes to Rissi?)

1. Snow White - Name your favorite classic


If I'm interpreting "classic" as the old classics, like pre-20th century, than Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott. :)  (And it's also just one of my favorites, period. ;))

2. Cinderella - Name a book that kept you reading well past your bedtime


There have been several!  But more recently, Dawn's Early Light by Elswyth Thane.  You can read my Goodreads review here!

3. Aurora - Name your favorite classic romance


*freezes up*  Yikes.  Classic romance book?  See, that's a toughie.  I love a lot of the romances in classics, and I love the way they're portrayed in the movie adaptations, but the books themselves are not often my favorites.  Such is the case with Persuasion by Jane Austen, which is the book I'll use for this question.  Persuasion is actually (probably) my favorite J.A. story . . . I have what I call a "Jane Austen hierarchy" about which I need to do a post soon.

4. Ariel - Name a book that's about making sacrifices and fighting for your dreams


Ummmm . . . *draws a blank*  Oh!  Hattie Big Sky by Kirby Larson.  (This is a great book, guys, and it really deserves more attention. <3)

5. Belle - Name a book with a smart and independent female character


Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine.  (I love this book.  I need to read it again. :))

6. Jasmine - Name a book with a character who challenged the social conventions of his or her world



The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows has several unconventional characters (and very precious ones they are, at that).

7. Pocahontas - Name a book with an ending that was a roller-coaster of emotions


The Book Thief by Markus Zusak?  That's all that's coming to mind, even though I felt so sure that there were more . . .

8. Mulan - Name a book with a [totally boss]* female character   [I decided to change the adjective because of Reasons ;-P]


When the first "totally boss" female character who comes to mind is Rey but that's not a book . . . #sigh

Anywho, let's see here . . . I guess the girl in Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell is pretty boss.  

9. Tiana - Name a book featuring a hardworking, self-made character


The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater.

10. Rapunzel - Name a book that features an artist



I really couldn't think of one, but Amy in Little Women is an artist, isn't she?

11. Merida - Name a book that features a mother-daughter relationship


Passing by Samaria by Sharon Ewell Foster has a good relationship between its protagonist and her mother.

12. Anna and Elsa - Name a book that features a great relationship between siblings


To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.

I tag anyone who wants to do this!  (I know, I know, I'm sorry, but I've got things to do and places to be and ain't nobody got time for specifics. :-P)

Have a great day, everyone!

  4. Ah, such good answers!!! (And this is SUCH a marvellous idea... I love it!!)

    Ohhh, Rey is definitely a boss character! And hey, I've read Island of the Blue Dolphins! That is a good book. :D

    Amy March is indeed an artist. *nods head* Perhaps not an extraordinary one, but she IS one nonetheless. By the way, I've been watching the new Little Women TV series that's come out on Stan this week! Have you seen it?

    AAHHHH TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. <3 I love how Jem and Scout are best of friends and worst of enemies. I feel like a lot of siblings are like that though. I certainly was for a long time. XD Their friendship is adorable, though. And Dill is a barrel of laughs!

    1. Aww, thanks, Gabby!! (I know, ain't it grand?!)

      YES, she really is. Love her. <3 It is! I need to reread it.

      Hahahaha, "perhaps not an extraordinary one, but she IS one nonetheless." Heehee. xD I have not seen the new one! (They're coming out with two new ones, aren't they?) I must confess, I have a LOT of skepticism about these new adaptations. Because I ADORE the '94 version so much, so I have a feeling it'll be difficult for me to get on board with any other, heh. But what about you?! What do you think so far?!

      YES FOR REAL EXACTLY. <333 Dill is awesome, too! "I'm little but I'm old." xD

    2. I saw the Stan 3 episode miniseries of Little Women and liked it. I didn't LOVE it, and it wasn't my favourite, but it had a lot of extra things from the book that none of the other movie adaptions ever had, which pleased me. But yeah, it doesn't beat the '94 version. :D

    3. Interesting! I'm sure I'll watch the new adaptations one of these days. :D
