[Book Tag] The Pixar Book Tag!

Posted February 23, 2016 by Lyn Kaye in Lyn, Tags & Surveys / 13 Comments

Hello There!

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.

Tie: The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon and Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

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.

  1. It’s been so long since I come to this blog. I’m so sorry. I was traveling and then I had to set things back in order so I was kind of absent. Anyway, I love Wall-E too! It’s been years since I last watched it but the feels are still the same. Ooh, the Darkling is a character I truly love as well, although I didn’t exactly like the series, haha. Nice tag!

  2. First off, this tag is the best and I’m totally stealing it and THANK YOU. Also thank you for that aside about Armada because I read it first and now I don’t want to read Ready Player One. :/
    And thanks…I hope you have a Sam someday, too. 😀

    • Please do read Ready Player One. It is one of my favorite books! Armada was such a hellhole compared to that one.

      I still hope to find my Sam one day…or Samantha….and while I’m ad it, my Aragorn.

      Oh! I really hope you do this tag. It was so fun!

  3. I always forget how much I love WallE until I rewatch it.. and then I have tears running down my face because I love it too much. It’s not my obvious fave pick but yah, I feel you on this.

    I will never outgrow my love for the Wayside School books! Oh man! I didn’t love BITGB as much as you did but Sachar made such an impression when I was a kid!

    Yeah… the Darkling… I was interested in him before the evil confirmation and yeah even after.. That’s a character with some CHARISMA let me tell you what.

    omg you would pick Jared’s power and that is PERFECT tho I pretty much think you’re close enough as is w/ loki and kili

    you will be happy to know you and gilly are the reasons why I just bought Truthwitch…..

    ok so I read but did not LOOOOVE the bone season. does book two get better? should i keep going? persuade me, Lyn.

    • WALL-E Made me have all the feels. Good, bad, kinda in the middle….all of them!

      BITGB was a huge deal for me, because I was so unlikable in school, and here was this boy, who no one liked, and he wanted to be liked, and he had some of the same issues I did, and it was amazing that there was someone like me. But Wayside School books were awesome as well. I also loved Holes. I need to read the rest of his books, just for the hell of it.

      I want ALL cats to love me like Kili and Loki. Even the big ones! I want a tiger. I want a tiger kiss.

      HAHAHA PEER PRESSURE!!!!! READ IT NOW!

      You didn’t love The Bone Seasons! I’m not sure what to do with this information!!! But I did enjoy Book 2 quite a bit more.

      Jellicoe Road – the true test if you are a psychopath or not!
