I must say, I was BEYOND excited when I realized that I had been tagged to participate in the Disney Book Tag by the lovely Lexi/Lauren @ DriftingLexi. I’ve seen this tag floating around for a while now and I was just waiting for the day that I would get tagged! This is so exciting! Let’s begin!
Jacob: Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Jacob is thrown into a completely new world in a completely different country within Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children. Imagine time travelling back in time while on vacation in London?! I would definitely feel like a fish out of water as well!
Darrow: Red Rising Trilogy by Pierce Brown
Darrow definitely goes through one hell of a transformation throughout the entire Red Rising trilogy, however, he goes through the most drastic of changed within the first novel, Red Rising. Darrow transforms from a low class “Red” to a royally high class “Gold”. While it’s mostly his appearance that changes within the first novel, his personality changes throughout the entire series.
The Wicked + The Divine by Kieron Gillen & Jamie McKelvie
I mean, it’s a graphic novel that deals with 12 different gods from 12 different religions. Definitely an eclectic cast of characters if I do say so myself. They all range in appearance, personalities, gender, sexuality etc. They are all different from one another, it’s wonderful.
Serena by Ron Rash
I’m sorry, but this book and I just did not get along. It was so boring and so slow and it definitely put me to sleep once or twice while commuting to work, literally. Nothing exciting happened until about 75% of the way through. I’m honestly surprised I was even able to finish it.
Win: Charm & Strange by Stephanie Kuehn
This book was so dark and so eerie. I don’t know how else to explain it. Win (Andrew Winston Winters) went through so much and this book does a wonderful job in slowly unravelling his story. A terrific read if you’re looking for something darker in nature.
House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
Now, I know those of you who have read this book may question me in my decision to call it beautiful, but I definitely do think that it is. Yes, the story is dark and twisted and confusing. What I find beautiful is the amount of work that went into this novel. The detail and the thought process that went into it is insane. And yes, this book is a beast. Not only is it huge, but the story is told in such an unconventional way. I highly recommend this book to everyone.
More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera
In this case, Aaron had his wish granted and I definitely do not think it was for the best. Ultimately he ends up drastically changing his life forever. This book was heartbreaking, yet it told such a powerful story.
The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley by Shaun David Hutchinson
Drew pretends to be someone that he isn’t up until the end of this novel, where he finally comes to terms with who he is and the path that his life has taken. Drew doesn’t act like someone he isn’t to fit it, he pretends to be someone he isn’t so that he is able to hide from his true self and the reality that is his life. Shaun David Hutchinson is a phenomenal author and I highly recommend reading his novels.
On The Road by Jack Kerouac
Now, I know what you’re thinking. The characters within this story are already real figures in history. Yes, this is true. However, they are all now deceased. I would do anything to bring back the characters/real people from within On The Road as I would have loved to have been able to meet them in person and discuss their amazingly interesting lives and adventures.
Alex DeLarge: A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
Alex is one of those characters that definitely should not be likable, but for whatever reason just is. This book and its film adaptation have become cult classics and Alex, as a character, has become iconic. I even dressed as him at Fan Expo Canada where I was even able to meet the wonderful Malcolm McDowell!
There you have it! Disney Tag = Complete! Like I said earlier, I absolutely love this tag and I’m so thankful to have been tagged to participate! I hope you enjoyed my selections!
I would love to tag these wonderful bloggers to participate!
