I haven’t done a Book Tag in quite some time. But today is a rainy, cold day so I decided it’s time to get my Book Tag on! Disney movies always have a way of making me feel all cuddly and warm inside.
So today I’ll be looking at some book characters who relate to some of the most loved Disney movies ever. So let’s GO!
The Little Mermaid – A character who is out of their element, “a fish out of the water.”
Louisa Clark from Me Before You by Jojo Moyes.
I immediately thought about Lou Clark when I saw this first character description. Lou worked as a waitress at a coffee shop for a long time. After being “let go” she took a job as a carer for the quadriplegic, Will Traynor.
I don’t think you can feel more like a fish out of water in a situation like that.
Cinderella – A character who goes through a major transformation.
America Singer from The Selection by Kiera Cass
Although I didn’t enjoy the series very much, America Singer goes through a pretty big transformation. I mean physically. Mentally/Emotionally she’s still just a whiny little girl. -blegh-
America when from being a poor, underappreciated singer to a candidate to be the next princess of wherever this book takes place.
America Singer and Cinderella are perfectly matched! They even have the same color dress!
Snow White – A book with an eclectic cast of characters.
The cast from Winter by Marissa Meyer
This is absolutely one of my favorite book series ever. This is huge thanks to the awesome characters in this book. We have Cinder, Scarlet, Ze’ve, Cress, Carswell and all the others.
They have the best friendship and relationship ever, while they are all so very different from each other.
Sleeping Beauty – A book that put you to sleep.
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
This book was so over-hyped this year. There is also a film that’ll be released sometime soon, I think. I just cannot understand the hype.
I tried a few to times to read The Girl on the Train, but I just could not get into it. It was boring, the characters were awful and the end was SO predictable. Thriller or Mystery books aren’t books I usually read. The Girl on the Train just put me off reaching for that genre again for a while!
The Lion King – A character who had something traumatic happen to them in childhood.
Mia Hall from If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Mia probably has the most traumatic thing happen to her in her childhood than a lot of other YA books.
This isn’t a spoiler as this happens in the very start of the book.. Mia loses her whole family in a huge car crash on a snowy day. Her mother and father were killed on impact. This is pretty damned traumatic as far a traumatic events go, in my opinion.
This book was great and so heartbreaking. Just like The Lion King!
Beauty and the Beast – A beast of a book (a big book) that you were intimidated by, but found the story to be beautiful.
A Game of Thrones by George R.R Martin
I wouldn’t particularly call this a “beautiful” story, but it was really just great! I’ve never really read a lot of high fantasy books, and was quite intimidated by the size of this book. However, I did manage to read A Game of Thrones and I enjoyed it completely!
A Game of Thrones is 835 pages long, and one of the biggest book I’ve ever read.
Aladdin – A character who gets their wish granted, for better or for worse.
Hazel Grace Lancaster from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Before falling in love with Augustus Waters, Hazel Grace had a love affair with the book An Imperial Affliction by Peter Van Houten.
Hazel Grace dreamed of meeting Peter so that she could ask him questions about the book. After Hazel Grace gets her wish granted she realizes that meeting Peter Van Houten is nothing like she imagined.
Mulan – A character who pretends to be something or someone they are not.
Count Olaf from The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket
This actually applies the the WHOLE series. Count Olaf is know to transform himself into anyone he wants to be in order to get his hands on the Baudelaire fortune.
Count Olaf is constantly scheming and pretending to be someone he isn’t. From Al Funcoot (an anagram for Count Olaf), Stephano, Shirley T. Sinoit-Pécer, etc. Count Olaf takes on the identity of literally ANYBODY!
He’s like a villainous chameleon.
Toy Story – A book with character you wish would come to life.
Everyone from the Harry Potter Series by J.K Rowling
I really wanted to say the whole cast from The Lunar Chronicles, but seeing as though I’ve already used Winter above, I’ll go with Harry Potter.
I loved this series so much and everybody in the books are so amazing. Even the baddies.
Also If the character in Harry Potter comes to life it means the wizarding world exists and that would be the greatest thing ever!
Disney Descendants – Your favorite villain or morally ambiguous character.
Draco Malfoy from the Harry Potter Series by J.K Rowling
I love Draco so much! <3
He obviously made some very bad choices, but I can almost understand it when you look at his family. Especially his father.
