The Little Mermaid
A character that is out of their element, a fish out of water
My goodness…there are so many stories that fit this description! I think that’s what make a majority of great books; a character out of their element. I’ll go with Captain’s Courageous by Rudyard Kipling. I pick this one because it is literally at sea so it seemed fitting. Harvey Cheyne: brat turned man, good story!
A character who goes through major development
This is also a very common theme in so many books. I’m going to go with Jacob from Mrs. Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. He is a wimp and coward, but in the end, even though he is scared, he proves himself worthy.
A book with an eclectic cast of characters
I’m also going to go with Mrs. Peregrine’s again with this one. This group of kids is pretty diverse. I would recommend reading it if you like books with a large diverse cast.
A book that put you to sleep
The Circle. I love the concept of an evil corps type setting, but the writing fell short. I hated the main character, Mae, and she was so bland she put me to sleep.
The Lion King
A character that had something traumatic happen in their childhood
Redeeming Love, Angel becomes a prostitute at only 8! It’s a great book and read though!
Beauty and the Beast
A book that was a beast (a.k.a a big book that you were intimidated by but in the end found beautiful)
I’m hoping to feel that way about the book my husband gave me to read, which I read at lunch during work. It’s The Way of Kings, it’s alright so far, I’m hoping for more, but I’m only a little way into it so far.
A character who has their wish granted for better or for worse
A Mid Summer’s Night Dream by William Shakespeare. This is such a cute mixed up story that has a happy ending for all. One of my favorites.
A character who pretends to be someone or something that they are not
Jane Eyre. Jane’s love is hiding something, but what?…No spoilers!
A book with characters who you want to come to life
I don’t really know. There are so many good ones! I just love to re-read if they are that good. 😊
Your favorite villain
Hmmm, I don’t know lol! You can’t have a good story without one, but maybe I need to read more stories with more dynamic villains…to the TBR list…. (Feel free to drop one of your favorites down below, and feel free to pick up this fun tag!!)
