Hey everybody! Thank you Maria @MyParisianBookshelf, for welcoming me to do this tag. If you’d like, you can too! Who else is super excited for the remaking of this movie, starring Emma Watson ?
Belle – A book you bought for it’s beautiful cover that’s just as beautiful inside.
Certainly Between Shades of Gray, although there are actually two different covers for this book, and you may recognize the other one, which has a leaf on it. This novel is about WW2, and is pleasantly intriguing, even for those who aren’t into the the history genre.
Beast – A book you didn’t expect much from but that pleasantly surprised you.
Being a devoted fan of fantasy, I can easily say this is the absolute best fantasy novel I have read in all my time. I don’t particularly like any of the covers in the series, and I prefer the more unpopular version of the covers that are decorated in feathers. Basically this book is the non-Twilight-ripoff that never existed.
Gaston – A book everyone loves that you don’t.
Given that this was a New York Times Bestseller, and was made into a movie, it is a very popular YA book. I didn’t get through the first novel, The Maze Runner, very quickly, and I reached about halfway through the second before I stopped. It had a good idea, but I think that the writing wasn’t very captivating.
Lefou – A loyal sidekick you can’t help but love more than their counterpart.
I preferred the main character’s (Andie) best friend, Palmer, better. I assume that this is because Palmer always had such a uplifting personality throughout the book, meanwhile Andie was partially missing this quality, due to her fairly awful childhood.
Mrs. Potts, Chip, Lumier & Cogsworth – A book that helped you through a difficult time or that taught you something valuable.
If you ask me, this is at the height of value that I have found in a YA book. The main character, Cadence, is very wise for a young girl. She does tend to overthink a lot of stuff throughout the book, but she is generally very thoughtful. She teaches you what is essential in life, although she gets carried away thinking that the small things don’t count.
“Be Our Guest” – A fictional character you’d love to have over for dinner.
Oh my. This probably sounds a little sad, but I am assuming I have thought about this many times before. I would probably invite Clary from the Mortal Instruments, mostly because if she were real than so would the shadowhunting world. My point is that it would be pretty cool if she could tell me about their world. Even if it may mean that ours would be overpopulated with demons someday…Wow that escalated quickly! (it’s a mortal instruments inside joke…)
