Y’all know by now that I am utter BATB trash. I love it so much. Belle is my ULTIMATE Disney princess, I think she’s just a wonderful, wonderful person. When I saw the Beauty and the Beast book tag floating around, I knew I needed to engage, because, well, I’m predictable AF.
‘Tale as Old as Time’ – A popular theme, trope or setting you will never get bored of reading.
I’m not a massive “trope” lover. However, I am a SUCKER for anything romantic. I read a book recently where they were like “oh yeah we know it’s not going to go anywhere” and to everyone around them, it was CLEAR AS DAY something was going on. So yeah. Or the bad boy who is secretly a proper softie.
Belle – A book you bought for it’s beautiful cover that’s just as beautiful inside too.
Let’s be real, I buy a LOT of books because of their covers. I’m a TOTAL cover fiend. You can’t beat Sara Barnard books though. They have the ultimate sheld appeal – all that metallic sparkly goodness.
Beast – A book you didn’t expect much from but pleasantly surprised you.
Hmmm… this is hard. I don’t know that I have an answer for this one! Let me think about it!
Gaston – A book everyone loves but you don’t.
Oh man, Caraval. Now I don’t NOT love it… but I was just decidely underwhelmed by it. I’m still totally on the fence as to whether I want to read the second one.
Lefou – A loyal sidekick you can’t help but love more than their counterpart.
Rooftoppers by Katherine Rundell has some absolutely amazing “sidekicks”. That story is VERY special.
Mrs. Potts, Chip, Lumiér, and Cogsworth – A book that helped you through a difficult time or that taught you something valuable.
Oh man, so so many books. I’m going to have to go for Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig. That book is one that I truly believe everyone should own, or at least read once in their lives.
‘Something There’ – A book or a series that you weren’t into at first but picked up towards the end.
The Smoke Thieves by Sally Green. I struggled so hard to get into this book because the first 80% is just set up. I just found it quite a hard slog… but by the end I was into it.
‘Be Our Guest’ – A fictional character you’d love to have over for dinner.
SO MANY. I’d love to have Belle over most though I reckon.
And there you go! Don’t forget to tag me in any tags you’d like to see me do. Tags are becoming a Friday staple on here!
Let me know your thoughts!
