BOOK TAG ✨ Sleeping Beauty Tag

I’ve been trying to do this tag for weeks, and it’s finally here!

First of all, I’m sorry for being so absent lately! 😦 On top of school work, I just haven’t had much motivation to write any posts lately.

Secondly, anyone who knows me well in real life will likely tell you that I love Disney. So when I saw that the amazing Mandy and Sha @ Book Princess Reviews made this tag, I just had to do it! 💕

(Also, shout out to Meeghan and Sven for encouraging me to do this even though I have so many other tags to do! 🤣)


Sleeping Beauty: A Main/Title Character That is Overshadowed by Others

Okay, I know this is so cliché, but… Harry Potter. 

Think about it. A lot of times, when you ask someone who their favorite HP character is, most likely they will choose someone other than Harry himself.

And yes, I know Harry gets enough credit as it is, since it is his series after all… but I think it’s high time we all acknowledge that Harry James Potter is still a great character and…

(He’s one of my favorite characters ever, can’t you tell?)

Prince Phillip: Name a Character You Would Slay a Dragon For

I mean, there are just so many characters I feel like I need to protect.

BUT, if anyone needed to be saved by a dragon, it would probably be Simon Snow.

That poor boy can’t do a thing on his own. Especially slay a dragon 😉


I would also do anything for Todd Hewitt, because he is so precious and he’s just *my son*. He deserves so much, and so many hugs.


Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather: Your Favorite Fictional Dysfunctional Family

I’m not sure if this counts, but I consider Magnus Chase, Hearthstone, and Blitzen a family. And sometimes they’re a little dysfunctional? Maybe?

*hides in the corner because I’m running out of ideas and I haven’t read that many books in my lifetime*

OH – but a good example of an actual dysfunctional family would be Jude and Noah’s family from I’ll Give You the Sun.


Nailed it.

Maleficent: Name a Villain You Can Relate To (I mean, I might curse a few people for not inviting ME to a party)

So, either I haven’t read that many books with villains in them, or my mind is going blank here.

I’m going to say that I either relate to Draco Malfoy (don’t ask me why, I just do) or Cardan in The Wicked King.


I swear, I am nothing like them in real life, but…. I kind of relate.

Briar Rose: A Book/Character Whose Name Confuses You/You Always Mess Up

Because I’m pretty much just an innocent bean, there was never any reason for me to hear the word scythe out loud.

I mean sure, I’d seen it in a few books, but I had never heard how it was pronounced. I just assumed I was saying it right in my head!

And it wasn’t until I was talking to a friend about Neal Shusterman’s Scythe that I had been completely wrong this whole time!


Once Upon a Dream: A Book That Gave You Deja Vu (♪♫♬ I know you, that look in your eyes is so familiar a gleam ♪♫♬)

Story time!

When I was very small, The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau was adapted into a movie, and I watched it (only once!) when it came out.

About a decade later, I wrote my second novel for the series I was working on in my early teens. That novel was so much better than the previous one, and not just because I was older and a bit more experienced. The plot and the characters were more interesting, and I was on a roll.

But then, I decided to read The City of Ember for the first time – and the plot was highly similar to the plot of my novel!

(I can still hear 15-year-old me screaming from embarrassment)

I was so ashamed that I had “stolen” a lot of things from The City of Ember, without even meaning to! But oh well, what can I do about it now?

I’m pretty sure that’s not what the question was asking of me, but that was the only deja vu moment that came to mind!


Blue Vs. Pink: A Character Who Can’t Make Up Their Mind

Apparently Alina Starkov can’t make up her mind about anything.

I get it, but like… Alina, what are you doing??


Sleeping Spindle aka Fulfillment of The Curse:  Name a Book that Turned Out Exactly How You Thought It Would Be (Good or Bad)

The novelization of Dear Evan Hansen was exactly like I imagined it.

It was good, but not the same as how I imagined the musical – it wasn’t that great. The book also didn’t give much more information about the characters, and it was still a little confusing.


(Also, I just found out that I’m going to see the Dear Evan Hansen musical on it’s US Tour! It’s coming to my city in about a year! 😀 Let me know if you like DEH so we can scream together!)


I Tag…

Everyone who likes Disney and/or hasn’t done a Disney Tag before! 🙂

I’ll see you guys next week!

Happy reading 😀

    1. Thanks! I’m glad you agree! Harry is underappreciated because of how complex he is as a character – everyone likes him just fine because he’s the main character, but they don’t always think about everything he’s been through and why he does the things he does.


    1. Thank you so much!
      If you like Harry Potter and want to read Carry On, remember this: Carry On is basically a Harry Potter parody (or rip-off). BUT, if you keep that in mind, push past it, and mainly focus on Simon and Baz, you’ll probably like it! (Just go read it and see what you think!)

  1. You can’t go wrong with Disney. Those are tough questions. I don’t know what I would have picked and haven’t read any of your choices. Good luck getting it all done.


  2. I had so much fun reading through this tag! Simon is quite literally the most helpless person I have ever read about! And I love your answer for a messy family, since I’ll Give You the Sun had all sorts of family drama going down. And that’s so exciting about Dear Evan Hansen! I hope you have an amazing time!

  3. So sorry for the delay in seeing this. Thank you so much, Xandra, for doing the tag!! I loved reading your answers!! 😀 And I thought your HP answer was so interesting. I never thought about it that way, but it’s so true. I know so many people love Draco and Hermoine, but I can’t remember many people saying HP himself. And yessssssssssss about Alina. So much agreement. Wonderful answers, Xandra, and thank you for doing the tag!! 😀
