The Disney Princess Book Tag: Take 2

Hello, film lovers!

A year ago today I did the Disney Princess Book Tag, which I was tagged by Hamlette. It was fun! Then, a few months ago (it was actually Sep. Wow, time flies) I saw on Fawnabelle's blog another Disney Princess Book Tag, that was completely different! Of course I "stole" it, and am doing it now.

Because I already did a version, I am not going to be reusing any of the same books, I have to pick completely new ones! And, I'll try not to use all of the ones Fawn used.

I believe that it started HERE.:

The Disney Princess Book Tag:
Fawnabelle made this graphic.
Snow White: "This book (like the movie) started it all"
Favorite Debut Book From an Author

Ella Enchanted - by Gail Carson Levine. Oh, so good!

Cinderella: "A diamond in the rough"
Just Like Cinderella, You Either Didn’t Expect Much Out of This Character in the Beginning But Turned Out to Be a Total Gem

Just to let you all know, I had a lot of trouble with this one.
To be honest, I didn't think a lot about Luna Lovegood when she was first introduced in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - by J. K. Rowling, but she became my favorite character of the whole series!! She is the best.

Aurora: "Sleeping Beauty"
A Book That Makes You Sleepy or Just Could Not Hold Your Attention

The Jungle Book - by Rudyard Kipling. Okay, so I was reading this to kids I was babysitting so that they could fall asleep, and I was having such a hard time staying awake.

Ariel: "Under the Sea"
A Book With a Water/Ocean Setting

Saturdays at Sea - by Jessica Day George. It is the fifth book in the Castle Glower series.

Belle: "Beauty and the Beast"
Name a Book With the Best Bookworm/Book Lover

Pretty much everyone (especially Alex and Connor) in The Land of Stories series - by Chris Colfer love books.

Jasmine: "The thief and the princess"
Name Book with an Unlikely Love Story (Either in Terms of Romance or a Book You Didn’t Expect to Love So Much)

When You Reach Me - by Rebecca Stead. My sister told me that it was really good, but I didn't believe her. Wow, just wow. It is really good.

Pocahontas: "The real life princess"
Name a Book that is Based on a Real Life Person You Want to Read/Have Read

I don't think of any of the books I have read has been based on someone. Oh, wait, Island of the Blue Dolphins - by Scott O'Dell is! (Apparently I saw her grave in Santa Barbara when I was really little).

Mulan: "The princess that saved her country"
Name the Fiercest Heroine You Know

Fierce? Um... I'm not sure that is how you would describe most of the heroine's in the books I read. I guess Scarlet from Scarlet - by Marissa Meyer is pretty fierce.

Tiana: "The princess with the coolest and most diverse crew"
Name a diverse book whether it is a diverse set of characters (like Tiana’s group of Naveen, Louis, Ray, and more) or just diverse in general.

Is there any possible way that I am not going to say The Wizard of Oz - by L. Frank Baum, to answer this one? I don't think so. There are so, so, so, many characters there who are all awesome.

Rapunzel: "Let your loooong hair down"
Name the Longest Book You’ve Ever Read

David Copperfield - by Charles Dickens, 624 pages long.

Merida: "I determine my own fate"
A Book Where There is No Love Story/Interest or Isn’t Needed

To Kill A Mockingbird - by Harper Lee. Sorry, romance lovers, there is none in here. But, it is amazing! Everyone should definitely read this at some point.
Silhouette on silhouette, pretty cool, right?

Anna and Elsa: "Frozen hearts"
A Book in a Winter/Cold Setting

I really wanted to use The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, but I used that last time!
Sorry, I don't know why Elsa's background is grey.
Julie of the Wolves - by Jean Craighead George. There were parts that I didn't like, but there were some interesting things.

Moana: "How far I’ll go"
A Character That Goes on a Journey

Frodo, Sam, and others in The Lord of the Rings - by J. R. R. Tolkien. Haha, yes, I can use it! I haven't used it yet.

I tag:

And anyone who has watched a Disney movie in the last week.

Thank you so much for reading! Are there any books you think I should read?



  1. Oh this is such a cool tag! Thanks for tagging me! I will start working on doing this. :)
    I love your new header so, so awesome!!


    1. Yeah, sure thing! Since you tagged me (which I am getting around to!) I thought that I should take you back. :)

      Thank you, Rakayle! I'm really pleased with how it turned out. :)

  2. What a fun tag, I need to read some of these.

    1. I would love to see your answers! Yes, they are definitely worth while.

  3. I got tagged for the other version of this, maybe I'll steal some questions from here....LOL.


    1. Oh, yes, that would be fun! I'm interested in seeing which ones you decide to take. ;)

  4. *gasps* wow, you stole from a Baggins and I didn't even realize it! XD

    Island of the Blue Dolphins might have been based on a true story?! That's crazy cool!

    also, I LOVE YOUR HEADER!!! It's so great!

    1. Heehee, I can be very sneaky when need be. XD

      Yeah! It was one of the first books I read and I couldn't believe it when my mom told me that!

      Aw, thanks! My sister made it for me and am pretty excited about it. :)

  5. This is such a cool tag!





    1. It is, I would love to see your answers to it (hinthint).

      To be homest I don't remember that much about it either. XD I read the sequels, too, so I am always confusing what happens in which. Oh well.

  6. Oooh, fun! I liked the first edition, so I may have to steal this one, too. ;)

    I'd forgotten Island of the Blue Dolphins was based on a real person! I liked that book.

    1. Yes, you totally should! I was going to tag you, but I wasn't sure how busy you are. ;)

      Oh, so good! It has been soooo long since I read it, but I still remember it.

  7. Cool tag.
    Yeah, Scarlet is definitely fierce. I guess Katniss Everdeen is, too, just in a different way.

    1. It was fun to fill out!
      Oh really? I've been wanting to read The Hunger Games for awhile, so I probably should sometime.
