I was going to post this on Monday (which is my normal tag upload day) but I saw the new Beauty and the Beast photos (here) for the remake coming out next year and I won’t be online Monday as I’ll be with my friend all day, so I made the executive decision to post it now! I am so excited for this movie! I think most of us bookworms can relate to Belle! I saw someone say the Beast looks ugly on Facebook, which I think is meant to be the point… but I digress. This tag was originally by Kirsty and the Cat Read and I found it on Book Wish Blog‘s site about two months ago so, here are the questions!
“Tale as old as time” – A popular theme, troupe or setting you will never get bored of reading.
Forbidden love. Yes, like Bella and Edward; can’t be together due to one of them being a different species, or they’re rival families, or one of them is 100 years+ and has glowing eyes and you can’t be together because his kind kept you in a camp where they used you to kill bad creatures and feed off you… I’ll stop. I’m sorry
Belle – A book you bought for its cover that’s just as beautiful inside too
None. I have never bought a book simply because of the cover. I always read the back, the first page if the blurb didn’t quite grab my attention and check the Goodread reviews (yes. I know, bad move) and sometimes I buy the book because I’ve heard a lot about it on booktube or from other bloggers! I’d be lying if I said I had never picked up a book because I liked the cover, but I have never bought a book simply because I liked the cover
Beast – A book you didn’t expect much from by pleasantly surprised you
Outlander. I honestly didn’t think I was going to like it or want to read the rest of this massive series but I actually really loved it and I’m planning on reading book two after Christmas!
Gaston – A book everyone loves that you don’t
Elenor and Park by Rainbow Rowall. I could not get into this book, I had to DNF it at around 100 pages because I was bored. I want to try one of her other books, though just in case it was the storyline that I didn’t like.
leFou – A loyal sidekick you can’t help but love more than their counterpart
I love Paige too much to say Nick and Jem doesn’t count as the three of them (Tessa, Will, and Jem) are the main characters! I don’t think I can pick anyone!
Mrs. Potts, Chip, Lumier and Cogsworth – A book that helped you through a difficult time or that taught you something valuable
Harry Potter. It taught me so much about love, acceptance, loss, finding yourself, and more. I think most readers had (and still have) that connection to Harry. We all had the books at the right time in their lives and because of the ‘Boy who Lived’ we’re all better people.
“Something There” – A book or series that you weren’t into at first but picked up towards the end
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. I still haven’t read Glass Sword, but I started enjoying the first book a lot more by the second half and I would like to see where it goes but I don’t think I love it, which is a shame because that plot twist was pretty good.
“Be Our Guest” – A fictional character you’d love to have over for dinner
Jaxon Hall! I think he’d be a very interesting character to have dinner with! Either him or Erik from The Phantom of the Opera because I’d love to met THE opera ghost!
Those are my answers! Let me know in the comments if you’re excited for the new Beauty and the Beast movie too! I tag anyone who would like to do this and Hannah because I’m really interested in seeing her answers!
Next week there will be a Waiting on Wednesday and a book review for On the Other Side so keep your eyes peeled!
