It’s ThursTag time, and today I am pinching the Disney Sidekicks Book Tag from Amy Golden Books Girl.
MUSHU FROM MULAN: THE COMIC RELIEF – NAME YOUR FAVOURITE HILARIOUS CHARACTER OR YOUR FAVORITE COMEDY/FUNNY BOOK
Felix from The Love Hypothesis by Laura Steven. He’s one of the main character’s dad and he made laugh so hard through this book I gave myself a stitch. Although his husband, Michael, also deserves a shout out for the very excellent ball gag joke he throws in there.
SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARVES: FAVOURITE GROUP / ENSEMBLE
The crew from Dangerous Remedy and Monstrous Design by Kat Dunn. They’re all individually brilliant, and they work so well as a team, but you spend half the time wondering who you can trust and what’s going to happen next. I absolutely adore this little gang and I can’t wait to see what they get up to next.
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 honestly don’t know how to answer this one. For pure surprise and it turning out to be absolutely nothing like I thought it would be when I started it, I’m going to say The Stranding by Kate Sawyer.
MEEKO FROM POCAHONTAS: POCAHONTAS’ SLY AND SNEAKY RACCOON FRIEND – NAME A PLOT TWIST THAT YOU DID NOT SEE COMING
Afterlove by Tanya Byrne (it’s out this month, get it ordered please and thank you). I’m not going to say what it is because that would be a huge spoiler for a book that’s not yet published but there are some twists in this book that I will never get over.
RAJAH FROM ALADDIN: GENTLE WITH THEIR PRINCESS BUT PROTECTIVE WITH EVERYONE ELSE – NAME YOUR FAVORITE BEST FRIEND IN A NOVEL
It has to be Irris from State of Sorrow and Song of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury. Irris is the best friend a girl could ask for, she is supportive, always there (even when Sorrow tries to push her away), and is not afraid to give her pal some straight talking when it’s needed. I adore her.
SEBASTIAN FROM THE LITTLE MERMAID: THE MUSICAL BUNCH – NAME A NOVEL WHERE MUSIC PLAYED A BIG PART OR MADE YOU WANT TO SING ITS PRAISES
For Viperthon earlier this year I read Who Put This Song On? by Morgan Parker, which is a semi-autobiographical story of recovering from depression. It’s not one I hear talked about often, but I did enjoy it.
MAXIMUS FROM TANGLED: THE OBSTACLE IN FLYNN RIDER’S WAY – NAME A CHARACTER THAT FACES A LOT OF OBSTACLES
Felix from Felix Ever After by Kacen Callendar. He has to face a lot of things in this book, not least being outed at school. He’s also dealing with some family issues, some friendship issues, questioning his identity and facing his feelings.
HAMISH, HUBERT, & HARRIS FROM BRAVE: FAVOURITE FAMILY DYNAMICS IN A NOVEL.
Recently, the family from Nothing Ever Happens Here by Sarah Hagger Holt. They’re all dealing with the news that their dad is transgender in different ways, but I loved the way they each dealt with their feelings and how they slotted together as a family. They are just lush.
HEI HEI FROM MOANA: NAME A CHARACTER THAT STEALS THE SHOW
Avery from The Edge of the Ocean by L.D. Lapinksi. I adore Flick and Jonathan, but Avery stole the show for me. She’s so funny and witty, she brings a lot to the story and I love the dynamics between her and Flick. I so hope we get to meet her again in the third book.
GUS AND JAQ FROM CINDERELLA: OPPOSITES ATTRACT – NAME YOUR FAVOURITE OR WORST OPPOSITES ATTRACT PAIRING.
The pairing that sprang to mine immediately was Rhen and Harper from A Curse so Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer. I do not understand what Harper sees in Rhen. He’s absolutely not the right guy for her, and I honestly just don’t like him. Yes, I am aware this is a very unpopular opinion.
Which opposites attract pairing do you dislike?
