It has been quite a while since I have done a book tag, and I wasn’t really feeling up to writing a book review this week. Mishma over at Chasing Faerytales put together a wonderful Pixar book tag that I have wanted to do for such a long time now!
So, I present, the mashing of Pixar and books!
WALL-E is my favorite Pixar movie. I love the message about saving the Earth, and building a love story with virtually any words is one of the most touching things I have ever seen. It all boils down to the heart, the character of a person, and there wasn’t one thing I didn’t love about WALL-E. I wish we would use the movie as a warning instead of entertainment. Also, that little robot IS SO ADORABLE.
There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom by Louis Sachar
I will always love this book. It was the first “serious” novel I read when I was in elementary, and it stuck with me for a long time. It was also the first book I ever picked up with an unlikable protagonist. Since I was a kid who wasn’t very well liked, it stuck with me and warmed my heart that I would eventually find someone, someday, that would love me for who I am.
Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid
This book was a mash-up of every single John Green novel ever written. The writer is a very sincere guy and all, but his writing isn’t for me. It feels very derivative and is edging in on the The Fault in Our Stars fame.
The Darkling from The Grisha Series by Leigh Bardugo
The guy could be horrible. He did some REALLY HORRIBLE STUFF. Also, everything I loved about him seemed to disappear in book three, but damn, I still can’t seem to bring in the hate for this guy.
The entire town of Las Anclas from The Change series by Rachel Manija Brown and Sherwood Smith
This series is so underrated, and I will never stop until I have more readers pick it up. In this dystopian series, the various cultures, classes, and nations of the world have melted together into this town, where people are accepting of different gender roles, sexuality, and talents. It is like a dream come true, for your family to love and accept you for YOU.
Jared from The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
I really wish I was a cat god, where cats followed me around, and loved me unconditionally.
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
By boat, foot, and horse, you are always on the move in Truthwitch. One big tally on the pro side for this novel is the world building, and exploring the lands and the cultures in this universe. This is a great novel for those who like to see action and a lot of movement in their stories.
Sam from Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
One of my biggest wishes in life is for every person to have a Sam in their life, a person who never gives up on them, who will always stand by them, even when the end of the world comes. When you wrong this person, they see through it all, and they know your heart and your soul, and forgiveness and love is an abundant source. I hope we can all find our Sam.
To be fair, I would pick The Bone Season as my series and Ready Player One as my stand alone (Armada NEVER HAPPENED).
Daughter of Smoke and Bone series from Laini Taylor
Liraz and Ziri. I have yet to find a romance that beats the slow burn, ice melting, heart-wrenching love between the two of these characters.
Liraz from Daughter of Smoke and Bone series from Laini Taylor
She is the QUEEN. She freaking SLAYS. The perfect balance of angry, fury, regret, wicked skills and intelligence.
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
I have yet to meet another book that has flayed me like this one. You are going to get it all. Seriously, any emotion that you name, this one will make you feel.
