Happy July everyone! Hope your month has been great so far 💕
I found the fairy tale tag on Dellybird and it seems perfect for me since I adore Disney and most of the modernized versions of the original fairy tales. (Have you read any of original versions? I found them seriously creepy and depressing, but then again I was also 13 🤔)
📌 Mention the creator of / blog you found the tag.
📌 Nominate some fellow book bloggers to take the tag! (I recommend atleast 3)
📌 Be creative and have fun with your answers!

Beauty and the Beast – A character that makes mistakes but redeems themselves in the end
“He’s no monster”
Holland from the Shades of Magic series by V. E. Schwab. I knew why he was like he was, but I still hated him in the first book. But I got to see more of him and took it all back by the end of the third cos my heart truly broke for him. He really is one of the best antiheroes I’ve ever come across.
Sleeping Beauty – A book that sent you to sleep
“Once upon a dream”
The Star Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi. This was a well written, beautiful book. But, it was so slow I honestly took nap breaks in the middle of reading it.
The Little Mermaid – A book that excites you or is full of adventure
“Nothing gave her greater pleasure than to hear about the world of human beings up above”
I could fit like 80% of the books I read into this since I mostly read fantasy. Since I can only pick one I’m going to go with The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh. (I’m both excited for it and it’s bound to be filled with adventure)
Cinderella – A book where a character is mistreated
“Perhaps the greatest risk any of us will ever take is to be seen as we really are”
The Folk of the Air series by Holly Black starts off with Jude being mistreated like crazy. But I think a fair share of characters are used and manipulated in these books.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs – A book with great friends
“I’ll take a chance for her”
The Six of Crows series by Leigh Bardugo has the most precious squad ever.
Peter Pan – A book that you will never forget
“Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away, and away means forgetting”
Since saying Harry Potter would be a lil too obvious and cliched I’m going to go with the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan cos it’s just as important to me.
The Ugly Duckling – A book or character that think is underrated
“It is only with the heart that one can see clearly, for the most essential things are invisible to the eye”
I think I say this often tbh but the Red Winter series by Annette Marie. IT. IS. BEAUTIFUL. And I adore it.
The Princess and the Pea – A book or character that made you uncomfortable
“She had felt one pea all the way through twenty mattresses and twenty more feather beds”
Damsel by Elana K. Arnold. This book was so hard to get through because it involved some really uncomfortable scenes. It’s a brilliantly written book with a lot of underlying meaning on important issues we face in modern day society. But it was hard to actually stomach a lot of the abuse going on.
Little Red Riding Hood – A book or character that wasn’t what they seemed
“Oh Granny, what big teeth you have!”
Never Contented Things by Sarah Porter. I read the first chapter or so and went nope because it is NOT what I signed up for. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check the reviews.
Alice in Wonderland – A book about identity or a character who questions themselves
“Who in the world am I?”
I’m going to go with the safe option of Tessa Gray from The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare because even though there’s a lot of great books which fit into this section none of them are coming to mind rn.

I think it’s so cool how people come up with these tags and I kinda wanna try doing one on my own but also don’t because …effort. (Yes I can be that lazy sometimes 😅) ALSO. Hope you guys liked my answers – let me know if you find it repetitive cos my memory can be W O R S T sometimes.
