Been watching a lot of booktube vloggers banging on about books. Not quite ready to do my own vlog yet, but fancied having a go at some of the tags they did.
Here’s my Disney book tag by Katytastic
Q1: The Little Mermaid – a character who is out of their element, a “fish out of water”
A1: Arthur Dent from . The guy spends the whole thing in his pyjamas and dressing gown. It’s also Thursday, something he can’t get the hang of.
Q2: Cinderella – a character who goes through a major transformation
A2: Jez from the tale of the Ketty Jay. The Jez you meet in is not the Jez at the end of . Most of the characters in this series can actually be listed here…except for Pinn.
Q3: Snow White – a book with an eclectic cast of characters
A3: Well the last two mentioned cover this nicely, but I’m going to dig deeper and try to come up with one I’ve not mentioned in a book tag yet…Think I’ll go with by Michael Grant. Not only are the children’s powers all different, they don’t all have powers and they’re also a very diverse group.
Q4: Sleeping Beauty – a book that put you to sleep
A4: by Greg Bear. For some reason I was determined to finish this book. It had already thwarted me twice before as a DNF. This took me ages to read as I kept falling asleep after a page or so. I’d pick it up, start reading, wake up, unstick my face from the pages, put the book away, turn the light out and go back to sleep. Somehow I did actually finish it. Was it worth the effort? No. No, it was not.
Q5: The Lion King – a character who had something traumatic happen to them in childhood
A5: Kerrick from by Harry Harrison. Having your entire tribe slaughtered and then taken captive by the Yilanè, shaved by hair eating slugs and brought up in a non-human world.
Q6: Beauty and the Beast – A beast of a book (a big book) that you were intimidated by, but found the story to be beautiful
A6: by James S. A. Corey, at 561 pages and a serious looking cover, it’s quite a daunting book to pick up. But the story carries you along so well with a brilliant cast of ecletic characters that this and the rest of the series is well worth it. This is indeed a beautiful book (and series).
Q7: Aladdin – a character who gets their wish granted, for better or worse
A7: John Hammond, gets his wish to build a dinosaur-themed park on an island. What could possibly go wrong in by Michael Crichton?
