I’m not sure I’ve talked about what a big Disney fan I am. I’ve watched so many Disney movies growing up and I love their animated films, especially.
Am I the biggest Frozen fan? Probably not. I love the animation and the songs, especially. I like that they went with a familial love being the curse-breaker, rather than romantic love (as is so often the case). But I wasn’t wowed by the story or the characters so much. There just wasn’t enough development there.
But, before I offend any die-hard fans out there who are wondering why I’m even doing a Frozen post, I assure you that I think it’s still a fun movie to watch and I am, in fact, excited about the sequel.
So, without further ado, let’s get to the tag!
Let It Go – A Book You Wouldn’t Mind Parting With
This book really enticed me at first, because I’m a huge fan of this time period, and of Lady Jane Grey. But once I read the book I felt mostly meh about it. I wasn’t expecting all the magical realism and quirkiness, which was fine. I just wasn’t wowed by it. I would not mind parting with this book, though that doesn’t mean I still wouldn’t recommend it to peeps if I felt it would be interesting to them.
In Summer – A Book You Think Should Only Be Read in Summer
This book is such a perfect summer read. For starters, it takes place on the warm, tropical island of Hawaii. Also, the cover is just so summery! This book was just okay for me, but it’s light and romantic(ish) and it would make the perfect beach read. I also tend to like reading romantic books in the summer. Don’t know why, it’s just a thing. I have definitely recommended this book as a summer read before. I can’t imagine reading it at any other time.
Fixer Upper – A Book You Wish Had an Alternate Ending
I really, really didn’t like the ending to this book. I was deeply disappointed because up until that point, I was really enjoying it! I felt like Howard wanted to get in one last twist and it just made everything fall apart for me. I can’t be more specific without revealing spoilers. I also don’t want to discourage anyone from reading the book, because all in all it’s a really good mystery and one that I enjoyed. I think there are many readers out there who don’t mind or wouldn’t mind the ending. But for me, if I could, I’d change it.
Olaf – A Book You’d Like to Give a Warm Hug
This is purely a case of what I’ve read most recently that I love. I didn’t want to get too old-hat with this post, since there are so many books I’d give hugs to. I wanted to go with something I haven’t really promoted too much of but would like to. And I really adore this book. It’s got that classic Arthurian legend but made new with a slightly different spin on things. I love the magic and the world of this book. It makes me happy.
Elsa – A Book That Made You So Mad You Just Wanted to Freeze It
I feel like I picked this one since it’s been on my mind recently from earlier this week. I know I’m also stretching it, since this book is technically a play, but who cares. I detest this book. If I could wipe it from existence, I would. I found it to be riddled with plot holes, the Golden Trio was completely unrecognizable from their original selves, the trolley witch…Anyway, I do not recognize this as anything close to cannon. #notmyHP
Anna & Kristoff – Your Favorite Book Couple
I mean, do I have to pick a favorite!!! This is a difficult decision, but I went with my heart on this one. Ella and Charmont are couple goals! They are solid best friends, they respect each other and think the world of each other. They’re so supportive. Ella is even willing to deny Charmont’s proposal in order to save his life because she loves him that much! I mean, my heart swoons every time I read this book. Ella + Charmont forever.
Anna & Elsa – Your Favorite Book Sibling Relationship
I had to go classic with one. I’ve talked before about how I love Elizabeth’s and Jane’s relationship in P&P. They’re both so supportive of each other and they know each other so well. I love how Elizabeth gets so frustrated with Jane’s inability to think badly of people, because she certainly can! I also love how fiercely Elizabeth fights for her sister, since she knows her sister isn’t one to put herself out there. They really round each other out and I love their moments together in the book. They make me smile.
Prince Hans of the Southern Isles – A Villain That Seemed Good at First, But Ended Up Causing a Heap of Trouble
SPOILERS!!! If you haven’t yet read The Golden Compass, skip right on by in order to avoid any spoilers.
I was going to also put The Darkest Minds, which Lauren from Twenty-Seven Letters used to answer this prompt, but I wanted to think of something else just for the challenge of it.
And I decided on Mrs. Coulter because she really is not what she seems at first. Her character isn’t necessarily “evil,” but she does cause a whole heap of trouble for Lyra and gang. She’s an interesting character and her own ulterior motives for things.
