Beauty and the Beast Book Tag

The release of Beauty and the Beast prompted me to go find a tag about it to do. And then comes along Kirsty and the Cat Read's Tag and here it is! If you guys want to get on board, do it. It was such a fun tag!! 

A popular troupe, theme or setting you will never get bored of reading

I'm all about family mysteries, I don't know if it's that popular, but generations of mysteries that suddenly is revealed and blow everyone's mind. Including mind. Kate Morton is the best for these!

A book you bought for it's beautiful cover that's just as beautiful inside too

I went to re-read my review for Fairytales for Wilde Girls and the first sentence was "the contents within [this] is as beautiful as its cover." Pretty much sums it up doesn't it. It was magical, whimsical and yet, every time I look at it there is such a saddening feel I get because of how hauntingly beautiful it is.

A book you didn't expect much from but pleasantly surprised you

I feel like you guys are going to be sick of me raving on and on about The Troupe, but this is such an underrated read and needs more attention!! I did not expect it to be so much more than what the blurb let on, and I loved every moment of it.

A book everyone loves but you don't

I feel like I'm going to be shot for even saying this but I did not and still do not like the A Court of Mist and Fury, and that extends to the entire series actually. I just prefer not to read about characters, grow to like them and then have everything taken away from me in the next book. So frustrating! 

A loyal sidekick you can't help but love more than the counterpart

I don't classify Jem as a sidekick per se, but I do find that I love him as much as Will - probably not more, but pretty much the same. Which made reading the series so much harder!

A book that helped you through a difficult time or that taught you something valuable

Surprisingly, Dr Seuss' Oh, The Places You Go, really gave me a lot to think about. I received this as a gift from one of my teachers just after graduating and it put everything into perspective for me. I wasn't in a great place in high school but the world is so vast I never really know where I could go.

A book or series that you weren't into at first but picked up towards the end

Code Name Verity was one of those books that I started off thinking it was okay, but then I fell in love with the storyline and the characters. I loved that it was a friendship novel and that it was so touching at the end.

A fictional character you'd love to have over for dinner

So many characters to choose from BUTTT if I had to choose it would be the Mad Hatter. Hands down that would be the most interesting dinner of all time.
