The Cinderella Book Tag

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

That’s right people, today I’m doing a Disney related book tag! The Cinderella Book Tag was originally created by Tiffany over @ About to Read but I actually stumbled across it on the lovely Cyra’s blog, Rattle the Pages, who found it over at Brin’s Book Blog. Whew. All of those blogs are fabulous and you should absolutely go and check them out and see what their answers to this challenge were.

I took this graphic from Brin’s blog because it’s stunning – she has the most beautiful graphics for the rest of the questions as well (more reasons to head over and check her’s out!)

Now, I wasn’t tagged “specifically” to do this challenge but Cyra did leave an open invitation so I’m taking her up on that. I love Disney more than chocolate. There, I said it. If it was the end of the world and someone went KIRSTIE! Chocolate or Disney! I’d choose Disney every time. And probably cry a little in Frozen whenever Anna mentions chocolate.

But enough babble. Let’s get on to the challenge!


 Evil Stepsisters: a book with characters you just hate

theuglystepsisters

A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin

822993

Cersei

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

444327

Delores Umbridge

Both of these characters I absolutely hate. Cersei is just awful and I really, really hope she dies a most horrible death, but I’m sure she won’t because that’s how it always goes with these people. I’m sure you’re all familiar with Umbridge and why no-one likes her, yes?


 Prince Charming: a book with a gentleman

cinderelladance

Iron King by Julie Kagawa

6644117

Ash

Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck

9284655

Ren

These two men are probably my biggest fictional crushes out of everything I’ve ever read. There were so many potential candidates for this spot but Ren and Ash hold a special place in my heart for being that bit more irresistible than their competition.


 Cinderella: a character that is graceful, kind, and defiant

I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai

17851885

Malala

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

140217

Lucy

I am Malala is a very powerful book and the memoirs of Malala’s shooting and very near death experience with the Taliban. She will always be an inspiration for me. Lucy is my second favourite character from the Chronicles of Narnia (after Mr. Tumnus) and is a wonderful little heroine.


 Fairy Godmother: a character that always has someone looking out for them

cinderella-c2a9-walt-disney

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

23437156

Kaz (Inej)

I actually found this one really hard to work out so in the end I went with Kaz, because he relies on Inej 100% to keep him safe. Kaz just isn’t Kaz without Inej.


 Helpful Creatures: something that makes you happy when you’re sad

20_yt_disney_gog3uh_869105g

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J. K. Rowling

72193

Who isn’t made happy by this book? Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is the beginning of the best thing that’s ever happened to mankind since chocolate.


 Ashes: a book you didn’t care for

1246034_1373568366198_full

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

4671

I’m sorry but I just didn’t get along with this book. The story just felt so dry and the characters super meh. I feel like if I were to re-read this and ponder over it maybe I’d appreciate it for what it is. But seeing as there are zero dragons involved throughout, I’m not all that fussed with giving it another go.


 Pumpkin: a character with a transformation

cc60a788e94c978f9675d4825c39a33b

Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

8685612

Meghan

Again, there are a whole load of characters who could’ve filled this spot, but I decided to go with Meghan from the Iron Fey series. In this third book Meghan has to make some pretty tough choices that completely alter her life. I won’t go into it as this is the third book, but what Meghan had to do had me in tears (mostly because it affected Ash, but shh).


 Impossible: a book with an ending you didn’t see coming

892364_1322715850016_full

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

18143977

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

18490

Both of these books sort of threw a curve ball me. In All the Light We Cannot See I really didn’t expect things to turn out how they did. It was a stunning book but quite a few of the character’s fates were shocking and definitely not what I would have predicted.

Frankenstein is my favourite classic and I will never forget my first experience reading it and the shock I felt at the craziness of the book. The ending is so wonderfully morbid and leaves you a bit like, where’d all the characters go?


 Just Breathe: something that inspires you to be courageous

tumblr_ljtxcveckg1qg8qido1_500

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling

818056

When Harry goes to Voldemort

Because if that scene doesn’t inspire you to be brave then I don’t know what will.


 Happily Ever After: a book with a perfect ending

82f2e502a9dd6992a67e2036ed629a20

Ensnared by A. G. Howard

22447220

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

14061957

THESE BOOKS. There endings were 100% perfect. Both had love triangles that needed resolving and both did so in a manner that had me raising my hat. There’s nothing quite like a perfect ending.


 There we have it! Have you done this challenge? What did you pick?

Feel free to leave a link in the comments below to your post, I’d love to read it!


 I tag:

Jocelyn @ 52 Letters in the Alphabet

Heather @ Bits & Books

  1. Aww this is so fun! I agree with you about a lot of these (at least those that I have read!) Kaz was NOT Kaz without Inej! I love them! And I was not a fan of The Great Gatsby either. At all. What even was the point supposed to be? Blech. And I looooved the end of Ruin and Rising, even though some people didn’t- it was perfect for me! OH and I really need to read I Am Malala. She is so amazingly inspiring, and so, so classy. Great choices!

    1. Thanks! Ruin and Rising’s ending had me all over the place with emotions in the best way possible. You should definitely get on to I Am Malala soon, it’s a fascinating read and a huge eye opener. I believe it’s being made into a movie either this year or next, not sure how that’ll work but hey ho!

  2. So glad you decided to do the tag! I hate Umbridge too – great choice for evil stepsisters! Always nice to find someone else who dislikes Gatsby. I haven’t read Ensnared yet, but I just got a copy, so I am very happy to hear you loved the ending 🙂
