Beauty and the Beast Book Tag

Sup my dudes! I have a book tag comin’ at ya! As you can, obviously, tell it is Beauty and the Beast (stolen from Book Loving Nut).

Now, if you don’t know, I LOVE Beauty and the Beast! Both the original and the new. If you haven’t seen one or both, GO WATCH THEM NOW. I GIVETH THEE PERMISSION TO RETREAT FROM THINE BLOG AND WATCHETH IT.*

Perfect! So now that you’re all caught up on one (two?) of the best Disney movies ever, you may continue on with reading the tag. Love y’all. 😉

(* full disclosure: I have no idea what I just said)

“Oh what a guy, Gaston!” A villain you can’t help but love

Jacks from Caraval. Without a doubt. That dude is just … YES.

Guys. He’s creepily epic and white and bloody and murders peeps all the time. How could I not love him? Plus, I love the super calculating bad guys with the cold, cold hearts. Which just about sums up Jacks.

Pls read the books and fall in love with him. Pls.

(Fun fact, I never really loved Gaston until I saw Luke Evans. Nuff said.)

“Here’s where she meets Prince Charming” Your OTP

Um, all of them??? Lara Jean x Peter, OBVIOUSLY. Jinn x Amani are also the bread and water of life. BUT MYCROFT x RACHEL. ❤

Sooooo. I’m gonna have to go with Mycroft and Rachel (Every). BUUUUUT. Jinn x Amani are a close second (Rebel of the Sands).

“I want so much more than this provincial life” A character destined for greater things

This is the basic, one-size-fits-all formula for every YA book. Ever. So to shake things up, I’ll go with a character that I feel like is ambitious, perhaps? Yeah, yeah. Let’s go with that.

Tella (Caraval). That girl be seductive. Ambitious, yeah. Yeah. That’s what I meant. Lol. She’s gonna GO PLACES, my man. I mean, she already has. But I tell ya, if someone was going to turn into an evil queen who actively devours hearts, it’ll be her.

“Be our guest!” A book that made you hungry

Aha ha. As if THIS is a question. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, easy. Not only is it cholk full of food, but LARA JEAN BAKES IT. Now I don’t know if y’all know this about me … but I love to bake. So this is, like, the ultimate foodie fiction.

I kid you not, every time that I binge this trilogy (and it’s happened numerous times) I bake cookies. Which turn out fabulously, thankyouverymuch.

“Beauty and the Beast” Opposites attract

I held back from using Lara Jean and Peter for my favorite OTP so that I could put them here! So proud of me *pats self on the back*

If you don’t know (which you should because you totally should have read To All the Boys before!), Lara Jean is like the soft, squishy homebody of a cinnamon roll who just wants to eternally bake cookies and snuggle her sisters. PETER, however, is a popular jock who is kinda a jerk and loud and bold and beautiful. They are absolutely adorbs together. As well as being opposite, because obviously.

“But there’s something in him that I simply didn’t see” A character who is more than they appear

I’m actually gonna go with someone who I hadn’t initially thought of. Eli Ever from Vicious. Or more rather, Vengeful. We see some more, deeper layers of Eli (though I’m still not a fan of the little dude).

In the first book, Eli is just the cold, calculating psychopath. However, in Vengeful we get to see his “origin” which gives more to his character.

“I was innocent and certain, now I’m wiser but unsure” A book that changed you in some way.

Haha, actually I’m going to go with two books for this one. Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock (I promise there’s a review coming soon!) and All the Bright Places.

Now, if you’ve either read both books or know a lot about them, you’ll know that they have some strong similarities: both are about depression and suicide.

These books just … really resonated with me. Have haunted me. Leonard really showed me the lows of human emotion and how just a little kindness can, quite literally, save lives. All the Bright Places inspired me to go and do. Finch – through all of his struggles – really inspired me to really live in the moment and to experience.

“Kill the Beast!” A book you picked up because of hype

Allllll the books.

“I’ll never shake away the pain” A book or moment that always makes you cry

Voyage of the Dawn Treader. I mean guys. I ain’t gonna lie – just looking at the cover makes me tear up. So, yeah, I think it’s safe to say that I cry reading it. Ever. single. time.

(Some honorable mentions: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Peter Pan, All the Bright Places)

((Of course, this is ASSUMING that I cry at books … which I extremely, rarely do. No joke))

“How does a moment last forever” A book that you’ve loved since you were little

Ella Enchanted. my dudes. All the nostalgia in this single little book.

Now I understand, this book is one that is best enjoyed at a young and tender age of childhood. But guess what? I was at the young and tender age of childhood. I’ve read it so many times I can’t even count. It’s my comfort book. (But that’s not saying that I like Ella – I’ve always somewhat despised her.)

What’s your favorite song from B&tB?? Mine’s Evermore (yes, I’m kinda cheesy 😉 ), but I also loved Beauty and the Beast by the beautiful Angela Lansbury (😍). Aaaanyways. If any of you do the tag, pls leave me a link so that I can read it and comment and fangirl, lmao. Let’s chat!

  1. I’d love to steal this tag! Beauty and the Beast is great, though eh I didn’t really like the new one. It just seemed too similar to the original so it was a bit boring, but the visuals were gorgeous I have to admit!! And I’ll love Dan Stevens for evermoreeeeee 😉 (deffo the best song, I agree)

    I really need to read All the Bright Places and Caraval! I think the latter is on my ‘to read soon’ list on goodreads so don’t you worry, I’ll get to it soon 🙂

    1. Okay, yeah, I totally get that. I know a lot of peeps felt similarly, but I liked it mostly because the cast (Luke Evans? Emma Watson? Josh Gad?) and personal hype and I saw it for my birthday, lol. EVERMORE IS THE BEST SONG. For some reason I always nearly crying when I hear it?? I’m weird, I know 😉 🤷‍♀️

      Yas! All the Bright Places is fabulous and heartbreaking (and I’m actually just about to reread it) and Caraval is just GORGEOUS. 😍😍
