Please check out all of their blogs if you haven’t, they’re all so nice and enthusiastic!

MUSHU FROM MULAN/OLAF + SVEN FROM FROZEN

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

13206828

Obviously Carswell Thorne immediately came to mind. He cracked me up so much I would literally send screenshots of some of his dialogue to my best friend who’s never even read these books to make her laugh with me. What a guy.

THE SEVEN DWARFS FROM SNOW WHITE

FAVORITE GROUP/ENSEMBLE

 

17675462

I feel like I’m committing some sort of treason not picking the Six of Crow crew, but my heart cannot help but go with my other black bird kids. I remember Maggie Stiefvater said that as she wrote her books, there was a sticky note on her computer that said, “the worst thing that can happen is they stop being friends.” I’m a sucker for friendship and also I just so love the dynamics between them all :’)  #friendship

PASCAL FROM TANGLED

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

18667787

I was super into the first half of this book, it was going so great- but once I got halfway through, it took a major nose dive and I had to drag myself to the finish line, weeping about how badly it turned out.

MEEKO FROM POCAHONTAS

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

Siege_and_storm

I didn’t see that character reveal coming at all and it was glorious. If you’ve read this, you know who I’m talking about.

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

22822858

My dearest Willem Ragnarsson. So good and kind and willing ❤

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

8143073

This book turns words into sound. The main character, Moses, is gifted with a beautiful singing voice, and I don’t know how the author did it, but when Moses sang, wanted to sing. This book had the most beautiful music I never even heard.

MAXIMUS FROM TANGLED

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

29283884

I’m gonna go with my beloved Monty and his crazy adventure around Europe. He endures a lot physically and mentally, and I love his character development through it all. He’s also a bit Flynn Rider-esque, though perhaps a little less swashbuckling.

HAMISH, HUBERT, & HARRIS FROM BRAVE

FAVORITE FAMILY DYNAMICS IN A NOVEL

23447923

This book has such sweet family dynamics. I love Sal and his dad and the way their little family changes, not to mention Sal’s extended family. Like any Benjamin Alire Saenz book, it saddened and warmed my heart both.

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

THE ADVICE GIVERS – BOOK THAT MOST IMPACTED YOUR LIFE

20141122110153

Yeah, yeah, you know.

HEI HEI FROM MOANA

NAME A CHARACTER THAT STEALS THE SHOW

20764879

Lila Bard is 5000% a show stealer. Like. She literally does that in this book. I love her.

GUS & JAQ FROM CINDERELLA

OPPOSITES ATTRACT – NAME YOUR FAVORITE OR WORST OPPOSITE ATTRACTS PAIRING

26252859.jpg

I’m going to go with a pairing that has been little acknowledged on my blog but which I love, which is Nico di Angelo and Will Solace. I mean, Nico is literally the son of death and the darkness and Will is the life-giving the son of…the sun. Not to mention, I love Nico’s moodiness contrasted against Will’s more cheerful disposition. They’re sweet.

 

Since I’ve seen this tag making lots of rounds, I’m gonna be cheap and not tag anyone. Please do it if it looks fun, and make sure to tag me so I can see your answers!!

Have a fantastic weekend!

  1. 100% Lila Bard steals every show that she steps into. I had always heard more about Kell than her, but I have no clue how because everytime she shows up, she kicks some major butt. And lol, I thought about using the TLC crew for best ensemble – but you were right; I felt it was wrong to not use the SOC crew and then fell into the pressure to use them. I’m super pumped to read about the Raven Boys crew, though, if they match up to SOC ensemble. Wonderful answers, Steph, and thanks so much for doing it!! Wonderful post! 😀

    • I know right?? Like you think the spotlight is on Kell but then Lila comes along and is basically NOPE OUT OF MY WAY. I love her. And I also thought of the TLC crew!! I’m going to have to choose them for one of these tag questions one day. I hope you like The Raven Boys when you read it!! Their crew has a very different dynamic than SOC but it’s fabulous nonetheless.

  3. This is a really cute tag and I love all of your answers! I looovvve that Stiefvater quote so much and even though I do have ships and everything in the books, it makes me so happy that platonic relationships are put on an equal footing as romantic relationships. I love the group dynamic of Blue and her Raven Boys too.

    Nikolai is my favourite from the Grisha books forever, Lila is absolutely a scene-stealer and a fabulous one at that, and Willem is about the best friend a person could ask for.

    • I think I had to choose The Raven Cycle kids for exactly that mix of platonic and romantic relationships- SoC has it too, but I felt it a *tad* more deeply in TRC. And I love how their little group changes throughout the books and is so much different by the end, even if a little sad.

      If Leigh Bardugo said she was going to give Nikolai his own book I would literally jump for joy. That or if she chose to road about any more of the SoC crew.

      • SAME!! I mean I’m freaking out enough about more in the Shades of Magic universe with more of the characters we know and love, and still over the Dreamer trilogy. Sequel series are definitely a trend I can get behind (as long as they’re good), and nothing would make me happier than more SoC character adventures or more about Nikolai!

        Totally agree with you, I feel like with The Raven Cycle you could stick any two characters together and have a compelling dynamic, and SoC/CK definitely has more of an emphasis on certain relationships (romantic or platonic – like Inej & Nina are fabulous, but Nina & Jesper say? Not as interesting or well developed) or as the group as they interact as a whole, not as much on every individual duo.

      • I KNOW AHHH more Shades of Magic and the Dreamer Trilogy I’m so excited. I’m really intrigued about what we’re going to see and the new people we’ll meet in the new SoM books. I can’t wait.

        Yes! We got some friendship dynamics in the SoM crew but I would have loved even more. Maggie Stiefvater was so good at emphasizing the individual friendships between her characters.
