The Beauty and the Beast || Book Tag


I was tagged by two amazing people to do this tag. They were Beth @Reading Every Night and Aria @Snow White Hates Apples. Thank you both once more! ❤ 😀 Be sure to check out their blogs!

Beauty and the Beast was actually my favourite Disney movie growing up. I asked my mom which one I used to watch the most and she said this one – “I had to watch it at least once a week” those were her exact words. So I’m very exited to be doing this tag now! Even though I was actually tagged ages ago, but I’m seriously the worst when it comes to keeping up with book tags and awards. (As you all should probably know by now.)


  • Thank the person who tagged you.
  • Mention the creator; Kirsty at Kirsty and the Cat Read.
  • Match a book to each of the songs/characters below.
  • Tag as many people as you like.

“Tale As Old As Time”
A popular theme, trope or setting you will never get bored of reading.

Morally grey characters and antiheroes.

I don’t know if this can count as a theme, but I’m counting it as one anyway. Morally grey characters and antiheroes are my favourite ones to read about! (Which you probably already know, as I keep mentioning this at every opportunity that I have.) There is just something compelling about them and they fascinate me. I would NEVER get bored reading about them.

A book you brought for its beautiful cover that’s just as beautiful inside too.

A book you didn’t expect much from but pleasantly surprised you.

The Martian was a book that I didn’t know what to expect from. Honestly I didn’t have that high expectations for it, simply because science fiction wasn’t a genre that I read much from. Especially when it came to stories like this, where a character is trapped on another planet. The reason I decided to read this book was because the movie was coming out soon – I just randomly decided to pick it up. This book blew me away! I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would, I even managed to finish it in one day.

The Martian

A book everyone loves that you don’t.

Okay, lets be real: There is no such thing as a book that everyone loves! No matter how popular a book is, there is going to be people who love it or hate it. I decided to go with Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell for this one, as it was one of the most hyped books at the time that I read it. Everyone seemed to love it and I kept getting it recommended. I didn’t enjoy it that much, I didn’t outright hate it – it wasn’t that horrible. I just didn’t find it to be as good as people said it was, plus I had some major problems with it as well.

Eleanor and Park

A loyal sidekick you can’t help but love more than their counterpart.

The only character for this question that came to my mind was Leo Valdez from The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan. (I actually had a hard time thinking of an answer for this one.) I honestly didn’t care that much about Jason in this first book, probably because I expected to read about Percy (who is one of my favourite characters EVER) but that didn’t happen. However, I completely adored Leo! He was definitely my favourite character from this book!

Percy Jackson

Mrs Potts, Chip, Lumière & Cogsworth:
A book that helped you through a difficult time or that taught you something valuable.

A book series that helped me through some tough times was the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. The first time I read this series was when I was in elementary school (when I was around 13 or 14) during the summer holidays. I didn’t have many friends back then and I mostly spent my time alone at home, I was very lonely. (I just felt like I didn’t belong anywhere, in any friend group.)

Reading all the Harry Potter books during that summer helped me a lot, they made me very happy! Now, whenever I feel sad or down I tend to reread at least one of the books. They just always manage to lift my mood no matter what, and I love getting back into the  magical world of Harry Potter. This is definitely the perfect series for this question.

“Something There”
A book or a series that you weren’t into at first but picked up towards the end.

For this question I’m cheating a little bit. When I’m not enjoying a series I don’t continue reading it, so finding one that picks up as the books continue wasn’t possible for me. (Plus I tend to dislike the endings to trilogies, so there is that as well.) So instead I decided to go with a series that just keeps getting better with each book.

I adored Eragon, it was such a fun book. I really liked the characters and the world, plus it has dragons – as you may know I simply LOVE dragons!! The second book, Eldest, was even better. I enjoyed seeing all the character development and finding out more about the world was amazing as well. (Though this second book was a lot slower than the first, which I didn’t mind.) I’m currently reading Brisingr and so far I’m loving it – even more than the second one!! This is kind of a cheat answer, as I haven’t read the whole series but I’m still going with it. (Though I’m hopeful that I will love it as well.)

“Be Our Guest”
A fictional character you’d love to have over for dinner.

The first two characters that came to my mind were Zahra and Aladdin from The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury, so I’m going with the two of them. They are two of my all time favourite characters and I would love to get to meet them. I have a feeling that having them over for dinner would be a lot of fun as well! I would love to talk to them and hear about their adventures, the stories they grew up with and many more things. The more I think about this, the more I want to meet both of them!

The Forbidden Wish

I tag EVERYONE who loves Beauty and the Beast and wants to do this tag!

Thank you very much for reading and I hope that you have an amazing day!

  1. Love this tag and love your answers!! I loved night circus, six of crows and was pleasantly surprised by Martian too. And I was also very meh about Eleanor and park- like you said, I didn’t hate it, but had some problems with it and it didn’t do it for me (that said I’ve liked her other books since then)

    1. I’m glad that you loved my answers and this tag was seriously a lot of fun! 😀 The Martian is definitely one of those books where I had no idea what to expect and it ended up being amazing. I’m the same with Eleanor and Park, I didn’t hate it but I had some problems with it. Haha, I haven’t read anything else by her yet, but I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed her other books more! 🙂

  2. Great picks for this tag Anna. I love the antiheroes and morally grey characters trope, I can’t get enough of them either because I find them so much more interesting than straight up heroes. I like characters who have motivations I can never be 100% sure of. 🙂
    Also the covers for The Star-Touched Queen and The Night Circus are definitely what led me to pick those two up (for Six of Crows it was the fact that it was written by Leigh Bardugo!) and Leo was my favourite character in The Lost Hero as well! 😀
    Again great picks for this tag, I loved reading this post. 🙂 ❤

    1. Thank you Beth!! 😀 I completely agree, morally grey characters and antiheroes are so much more fun to read about and they tend to be the most fascinating characters within any book. I’m loving the fact that there seem to be more and more books focused on those kinds of characters! 🙂
      Those are definitely some of the prettiest covers that I have ever seen. Leo was simply amazing, I just adored him. I’m glad that he is your favourite as well! 😀
      Thank you!! ❤ I'm glad that you had fun reading my post!

      1. That’s all right, and yeah I find the morally grey characters just so much more interesting than the straight up heroes. There so much more to make of their character development. Hopefully we’ll keep seeing more right? 🙂
        It’s hard not to love Leo, and that’s all right! 😀

  3. Thanks so much for doing this tag! ❤

    Also, I feel the same about Eleanor & Park (and the rest of Rainbow Rowell’s books tbh)! They’re not my cup of tea and I don’t think I can ever be convinced to read her books again, urk 😣

    1. Thank you once more for tagging me! ❤ 😉
      So far I have only read Eleanor and Park and I wasn't that impressed by it. I had quiet a few problems with it. I do plan on reading Fangirl, simply because I already own that book – but I'm not really interested in any of her other books.

  4. This is a really fun tag! I will admit, The Diviners didn’t work for me at all, but I agree with the rest of those Belle books!

    I am really interested to see what you think of The Inheritance Cycle as you wrap it up. For me, Eragon was the best book in the series and it was all downhill from there. I’d love to learn more about what you enjoy about them!

    1. It really was a fun tag! 🙂 Well, I read The Diviners when the book first came out and I loved it at that time. Honestly, I have no idea how I would feel about it now (hahaha, especially since I was sick when reading it and quiet heavily medicated).
      Oh I see, I’m having quiet the opposite experience with them! I do plan on doing a series review for the Inheritance Cycle, when I finish all the books. There I will go into all my thoughts on the series.

      1. So many people love The Diviners, so I know I’m in the minority here! The final book is coming out soon (is my understanding) and the hype is soooo real. Have you read book two?

        Brilliant! I look forward to reading your summary of the entire Inheritance Cycle. I love reading posts when people have contrasting options from my own on books. 😀

        1. No I haven’t. The second book came out a few years after the first book and by that point I forgot much about The Diviners – so I would have needed to reread the book. I just didn’t feel like doing that, so I have yet to get to it. I haven’t heard anything about the rest of the books, so I don’t even know if they get better or worse.
          Same! I love reading posts with different opinions on books, it’s always fascinating how the same story affects different people. 🙂

  5. I haven’t seen this version of the Harry Potter cover yet. Very cool! I still need to read The Martian. I have seen others reviewers on Goodreads said Eleanor is a downer so I already decided not to read hehe.. you’re right, I don’t know if there’s a book out there that everyone love.. haha..

    1. They are such pretty covers! The Harry Potter books have so many amazing editions. 😀 I can only recommend The Martian! It was such an amazing book and it took me completely by surprise. Yeah, Eleanor and Park really wasn’t the best so I completely understand not wanting to read it.
