Disney Princess Sidekicks Book Tag!

I haven’t done a book tag in a while so I was looking around for a fun one to do and came across this Disney Princess Sidekicks Book Tag, created by Book Princess Reviews.  Books and all things Disney are pretty much my favorite things in the world and I also love cool sidekicks so I knew this was the tag I’ve been looking for.  Okay, so let’s get started!

 

 

MUSHU FROM MULAN / OLAF FROM FROZEN

THE COMIC RELIEF – NAME YOUR FAVORITE HILARIOUS CHARACTER OR YOUR FAVORITE COMEDY/FUNNY BOOK

 

I apparently don’t read enough funny books, but I drew a blank for the longest time on this question.  Then I remembered how hilarious the Stephanie Plum series is, especially two of my favorite sidekicks, Grandma Mazur and former hooker turned assistant bounty hunter, Lula.  As if Stephanie Plum wasn’t funny enough, those two sidekicks never fail to make me laugh until I cry.  Just pure comedy right there. Love them!

THE SEVEN DWARVES FROM SNOW WHITE

FAVORITE GROUP / ENSEMBLE

 

Two favorite ensembles immediately came to mind:  1) Kaz Brekker’s badass team in Six of Crows, and 2) the equally badass Dumbledore’s Army from the Harry Potter series.  I couldn’t decide between them so I’m including them both.

PASCAL FROM TANGLED

THE LOYAL CHEERLEADER CHAMELEON (NOT A FROG, FLYNN RIDER) – NAME A BOOK THAT STARTED OUT ONE WAY BUT CHANGED FOR YOU.

 

I’m going to go with the Red Queen series.  For me, it started out as an action-packed, must read series but then somewhere along the way, it became a love triangle/square between main character Mare and pretty much every guy she met.  I got so irritated with that aspect of the series that even though the second book ended with a huge cliffhanger, I still have yet to pick up the third book because I just don’t want to hear anymore about Mare and her potential mates.  Speaking of sidekicks, sidekicks like Farley actually ended up being my favorite characters in the series.

MEEKO FROM POCHAHONTAS

POCAHONTAS’S SLY AND SNEAKY RACCOON FRIEND – NAME A PLOT TWIST THAT YOU DID NOT SEE COMING

 

I just finished reading an ARC of Warcross and totally did not see the plot twist coming at the end of that book. I’m dying to get my hands on the next book in the series because I just have to know what happens next!

RAJAH FROM ALADDIN / FLOUNDER FROM THE LITTLE MERMAID

GENTLE WITH THEIR PRINCESS BUT PROTECTIVE WITH EVERYONE ELSE – NAME YOUR FAVORITE BEST FRIEND IN A NOVEL

 

Can a droid count for a best friend?  I hope so because I’m going with Iko from The Lunar Chronicles.  For the longest time, Iko is the closest thing to a best friend Cinder has and I just loved how she looked out for her. Well, how they looked out for each other, really.

 

* * * * * *

 

 

 

LOUIS FROM THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG / SEBASTIAN FROM THE LITTLE MERMAID /

COGSWORTH, LUMIERE, MRS. POTTS, & CHIP FROM BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

THE MUSICAL BUNCH – NAME A NOVEL WHERE MUSIC PLAYED A BIG PART OR MADE YOU WANT TO SING ITS PRAISES

 

 

I don’t want to say too much about the music in this book because I think it gives too much of the plot away, but suffice it to say, music plays a HUGE part in This Savage Song.

 

* * * * * *

 

 

MAXIMUS FROM TANGLED

THE OBSTACLE IN FLYNN RIDER’S WAY – NAME A CHARACTER THAT FACES A LOT OF OBSTACLES

 

A character who faces a lot of obstacles?  I’m going to say Kady from Illuminae.  It truly is just one obstacle after another for her throughout that book.  Enemy attacks, plagues, zombies, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

 

* * * * * *

 

 

HAMISH, HUBERT, & HARRIS FROM BRAVE

FAVORITE FAMILY DYNAMICS IN A NOVEL

 

Two families immediately came to mind when I thought about family dynamics:  1) Starr’s family in The Hate U Give and 2) Rhys’ “family” in A Court of Mist and Fury.  Starr’s family is one of the most caring, supportive, open-minded families I’ve read in a contemporary, and I loved every single family member.  And while Rhys’ “family” may not actually be blood related, there is no stronger family dynamic that what we see with him, Mor, Azriel, Cassius and then Feyre when they welcome her to their little group.

RAY FROM THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG / 3 FAIRIES FROM SLEEPING BEAUTY

THE ADVICE GIVERS – BOOK THAT MOST IMPACTED YOUR LIFE

 

I’m going to say To Kill a Mockingbird is the book that, at least up to this point, has most impacted my life.  It was the first “grown up” book I can remember reading in school and one of the first books that really made me think about the world around me and about social injustices.  I credit this book with turning me into the ravenous reader that I am today.

 

* * * * * *

 

HEI HEI FROM MOANA

NAME A CHARACTER THAT STEALS THE SHOW

 

The title of show stealer has to go to Captain Carswell Thorner from The Lunar Chronicles.  He is just hilarious and steals every scene he appears in. Love this guy!

 

* * * * * *

 

 

GUS & JAQ FROM CINDERELLA

OPPOSITES ATTRACT – NAME YOUR FAVORITE OR WORST OPPOSITES ATTRACT PAIRING

 

Okay, so maybe they don’t end up being as opposite as they think they are in the end, but Lizzie Bennett and Mr. Darcy will always be my favorite opposites attract pairing.

I’m not going to tag anyone, but feel free to do the tag if it sounds like fun to you. 🙂

    What a fun tag! I love Disney! Your answers are so great, I totally agree with Iko as a favorite best friend. Such a great character. And yeah, the Red Queen series really went downhill for me in the second book, too, and I haven’t been running out to read the third one yet.

    Oh this is fun! Crime and humor can be a fun mix, and I keep hearing how Kaz’s crew is so I need to jump start my Six of crows reading. I can’t wait to read Warcross either- nice to hear there’s a good twist at the end of that one.

      Oh yeah, I can’t recommend Six of Crows enough. I’ve got a couple of ARCs I need to wrap up and then I plan to dive into the second book of that series. Can’t wait!

      If you’re looking for a laugh out loud read, I’d definitely recommend the Stephanie Plum series. Even though they’re crime novels, they light, fluffy, laugh out loud funny reads too.

    Love your answers for this, Suzanne! It was so much fun to read your answers. 😀 I definitely agree with the SOC crew as the best ensemble. They were all so dynamic and epic. And both Rhy’s family and the Carters were brilliant as well. I loved them dearly. And Kady certainly faced so many obstacles. Thanks so much for doing the tag, and your answers were so much fun! 😀
