The Princess Book Tag

I first saw this book tag when I got a notification in my inbox that there was a new post by Book Princess Reviews, and I instantly fell in love. Then Krysti asked me if I would like to participate in the tag this month as one of my featured posts. How could I pass that up?! I live and breath Disney princess, from the Belle sheets I had growing up to the Jasmine costume I wore for one or two Halloween’s. I couldn’t wait to put this post together!!

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

There are no words to describe how beautiful this book is. The setting is magical, the characters unique, and you can’t help but fall into the mystery that is Caraval.

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 Jem 
ember ashes
Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
This book has one of my favorite surprise characters, and that is Helene. Throughout this book I fell in love with her and her mental and physical strength. I honestly think I love her character more than Laia’s, because she’s so dynamic and hardcore! I’ve enjoyed getting to know her character as this series has progressed, and I can’t wait to read more about her in the next installment!

SLEEPING BEAUTY

A Book That Makes You Sleepy or Just Could Not Hold Your Attention

bone witch

The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
I thought that this book had an interesting concept, but by the time I hit 100 pages, not much had happened. I struggled to get through it and ended up DNF’ing it. I rarely do that, but this one just couldn’t keep my attention long enough. I really wanted to love it, especially with a cover like that. Maybe I’ll give it another shot in the future.

Blackhearts by Nicole Castroman
Blackhearts is a Blackbeard origin story like no other. I thought Castroman did a great job at creating an origin story that is believable, especially with a pirate like Blackbeard. Anne and Teach’s relationship is adorable, and I really enjoyed reading their love story.

BEAUTY AND THE BOOKS

Name a Book With the Best Bookworm/Book Lover
 HP.jpg
 Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
Hermione Granger is the most prolific book lover of YA in my opinion. There are few that can compete with her dedication to her academics, which require an immense amount of reading. I love that J.K. Rowling added such a dymamic character who loves learning, because it’s important for kids and young adults to see that, especially with how big a role technology plays in society these days.

THE THIEF AND THE PRINCESS

And I Darken by Kiersten White
What if Vlad the Impaler were a woman? Find out in this retelling/gender swap YA Fantasy. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book, because it is based on a story I’m not too familiar with, but I was surprised by how much I loved it! The setting, time period, and gender swap was so intriguing and very well done.

THE REAL LIFE PRINCESS

Name a Book that is Based on a Real Life Person You Want to Read/Have Read
jack ripper
Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
I loved this book! As a Criminal Justice major, I have a huge interest in Jack the Ripper. I find the case so fascinating and the fact that he’s/she’s never been identified makes stories like this one even more exciting to read. I’m always down for a good theory on who Jack the Ripper could have been! The ending had a twist I did not see coming!

THE PRINCESS THAT SAVED HER COUNTRY

Name the Fiercest Heroine You Know

 Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
I love Celeana Sardothian so much! She’s not only brave but extremely cunning, witty, and full of surprises. She totally has the backs of everyone close to her, and even when you don’t think she knows what she’s doing, she always pulls through! Her character is dynamic, and the plans that she puts in motion are extraordinary. Never underestimate her!

 

tiana tag

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
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon IMG_8091.JPG
I love this series so much that I had to include a photo of all of the covers! Each character in this series is so unique that you can’t help but love them all. There is such a huge variety of clairvoyants who come together to fight those who see them as a threat. You also have the Rapheim who’s mysterious connection to the modern world makes the story even more intriguing! I can’t wait for more installments of this series to hit shelves everywhere!!

I DETERMINE MY OWN FATE

A Book Where There is No Love Story/Interest or Isn’t Needed

We Are Okay by Nina LaCour
This book is so beautiful. It is moving and developed so well that you experience every emotion Marin is feeling throughout the book. Nina did an amazing job at showing the effects grief can have on a person and their journey to self-healing. I haven’t read a book with such depth in a long while. It was very refreshing.

FROZEN HEARTS

A Book in a Winter/Cold Setting

snow like ashes

Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

Winter has fallen and it’s up to Meira and the last remaining Winterians to get it back. This book is filled with adventure from beginning to end! I hadn’t heard much about this series but the cover caught my attention. When I finally got around to reading it, I was pleasantly surprised by how good it was! I plan to finish Frost Like Night as one of my May reads!

HOW FAR I’LL GO

A Character That Goes on a Journey
labrynth
Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova
This book was so fun to read. Following Alex on the journey to find her family took us on a wild ride. She passed through what seemed like the underworld. This book was so unique compared to other books that I’ve read. I’m always one for folklore and this book had plenty of it. I’d go on this journey with Alex again!

  17. YAYAYAYAYAYAY, Sarah!! It was SO much fun reading your answers! Um, Belle sheets are the best.I may or may not have a pillowcase with Belle on it now like the grown child I am. 😄 But I rarely see anything about Snow Like Ashes, so I’m so glad to know that you have read and enjoyed it since I’ve been meaning to pick it up. And I’m super glad you put Stalking Jack the Ripper up because I’ve been thinking how that was such a good one to do. 😄 I really need to try again with that novel. I think I jumped out too quick with it. Such much fun, Sarah, and as always, wonderful post!!

      I haven’t seen hardly anything about Snow Like Ashes and it’s so good!! I’m ready Frost Like Night right now and I’ll be sad when it’s over. I really liked Stalking Jack the River but I’m obsessed with crime stuff so it was a fun theory! So many good books out here right now that I’m glad we get to highlight them in the blogging world in creative ways!!

      1. Lol, no? 😄 Well, that is a shame. 😄 I think everyone should love some Belle sheets. 😉

        But yes! I’ve only seen you mention it and one other blogger and then nothing else. D: So of course I forget about it although it sounds really good. And I do have to ask you – is Stalking gory? Because I really want to read the second one, but I tried the first few pages of Stalking and it seemed kind of gory to me, but I’m not sure if that was just the first few pages, you know? And yes!! 😀

      2. SarahYAandWine says:

        I don’t remember it being too gory. I think most of the book is the investigation part with only gory moments here and there. It’s been a year since I read it though. That stuff doesn’t bother me much either as I enjoy that kind of stuff anyway. All my podcasts are true crime ones.
