Thanks Siobhan for the tag! I was looking was something relatively easy to post and saw that Siobhan had tagged me in this fun Beauty and the Beast book tag, so I figured why not?!
Alright, question time!!
Tale as Old as Time | A Popular Theme, Trope, or Setting You Will Never Get Bored of Reading
An old love rekindled. Maybe it stems from my love of Jane Austen’s Persuasion, but I love the story of second chance love. A new beginning, learning from past mistakes. There is so much potential for meaty storylines surrounding that one.
Belle | A Book You Bought for Its Beautiful Cover That’s Just as Beautiful on the Inside Too
I have two options for this…. neither one is new to this blog! Lol
Gaston | A Book Everyone Loves That You Don’t
The Lucy Stone series is quite well-liked. Somehow I ended up picking up book number 23 in the series as my first. While that may have worked against my liking the book, I actually found the main character to be a tad whiny and overly critical… not someone I wanted to read much more about, sadly.
Lefou | A Loyal Sidekick You Can’t Help But Love More Than Their Counterpart
I’m quite fond of main character Fortune, in this series. However, sidekick Gertie manages to steal the show most times. With her zany ideas, age inappropriate disguises and devil may care attitude, she makes for some seriously laugh out loud moments.
Mrs. Potts, Chip, Lumiere, and Cogsworth | A Book That Helped You Through a Difficult Time or Taught You Something Valuable
Enid Bylton stories taught me to believe in magic. They opened up my imagination, inspired my own stories and instilled a sense of wonder into my joy of reading. The Wishing Chair series is one of the first I remember reading on my own. Added bonus: Mrs. Potts et al would fit right into any magical Blyton Tale.
Something There | A Book or Series You Weren’t Into at First But Picked Up Towards the End
After reading many great reviews about Class Reunions, I was excited to read it. Admittedly the first few chapters didn’t immediately hook me. However, by the end of the book I was hooked on the series. Book 2 was hilarious and I’m looking forward to Book 3!
Be Our Guest | A Fictional Character You’d Love to Have Over for Dinner
Quite a few to choose from…. my usual choices would be Mr. Darcy, Harry, Dumbledore. I’m going with someone different today, Marco from The Night Circus. I’d like to find out a bit more about him.
