Today’s post is something I saw while reading Jessica’s Odd and Bookish blog. While I wasn’t tagged to do this post, I love Disney and as such it seemed like the perfect tag for me.
Interested to see what books remind me of classic Disney songs? Keep on reading to find out my thoughts and opinions.

A Whole New World – pick a book that made you see the world differently.
Another Day in the Death of America by Gary Younge. When I picked this book up in 2016, I was aware that the United States had a serious gun problem. Upon finishing it, however, I could have never imagined how inconceivable the problem actually was. Gun violence does not discriminate. It is not classist, homophobic, racist, or sexist. It impacts not only the person killed at the hands of a gun, but also their family, friends, neighbourhood, state, and country. With the topic very prevalent in the mainstream media, I highly encourage anyone who hasn’t read Younge’s dissection of one day, 10 young lives, and the need for gun reform, to pick this book up.

Cruella De Vil – pick your favourite villain.
The Komizar from ‘The Remnant Chronicles’ by Mary E. Pearson. Every time this question comes up in a tag I throw out the predictable names: Sauron, Voldemort, the White Witch, et cetera. This go around, however, I chose to pick a villain of whom I just recently discovered. The Komizar is a horrible man with horrible intentions, and let me just tell you, if you feel like me during The Heart of Betrayal (The Remnant Chronicles #2) you’ll be satisfied come the last pages of The Beauty of Darkness (The Remnant Chronicles #3).

I Won’t Say I’m In Love – pick a book you didn’t want to admit you loved.
Twilight (Twilight #1) by Stephanie Meyer. Admit it, you loved Twilight too. While I have grown up since reading this series for the first time, and am now able to see how problematic Edward and Bella’s relationship was, I can’t help but see the series sitting on my shelf and be reminded of how exciting that time in my reading life was.
Gaston – pick a character that you couldn’t stand.
Lucia from the ‘Falling Kingdoms’ series by Morgan Rhodes. Well, I am now in the process of reading Frozen Tides (Falling Kingdoms #4) and I can say with a level of certainty that Lucia is by far the worst perspective to follow during this series. Hopefully by the conclusion of the series she gets a serious dose of maturity.
Part of Your World – pick a book set in a universe you wish you could live in.
The Town of Sparrow from The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw. I am seriously trying not to be predictable and say Hogwarts, okay? Hopefully curses aside, I picked the town of Sparrow because of its location and description. As someone who lives no where near a huge body of water, it would be a nice change!

A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes – describe what the book of your dreams would be like
Something set in an imaginary medieval universe that includes magical elements that explore contemporary themes.
Someday My Prince Will Come – what book character would you marry if you could?
Thomas Cresswell from the ‘Stalking Jack the Ripper’ series by Kerri Maniscalco. Currently, Mr. Cresswell is the male protagonist I am obsessed with. Blessed with wit, charm, and a knack for forensics, I think he and I could have some pretty interesting adventures.

I See The Light – pick a book that changed your life
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (Harry Potter #1) by J.K. Rowling. While I have been trying to offer up some new and exciting answers, this one will never change.
When You Wish Upon a Star – pick a book you wish you could reread for the first time
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter #7) by J.K. Rowling. This book ended my childhood. It solidified themes such as prejudice, war, death, love, and loss. If I could go back to 2007 and just savour the fact that it was going to be the last chance to read a new adventure with Harry, Ron, and Hermione, I would call that a win.
I Just Can’t Wait to be King – pick a book with some kind of monarchy in it
Daughters of the Storm (Blood and Gold #1) by Kim Wilkins. I could have picked a multitude of different books for this prompt, given that I read a fair amount of fantasy and historical fiction, but settled on Daughters of the Storm because it is the book I am reading and has, from what I can tell being only 60 pages in, an interesting monarchical system being put into play.
Colours of the Wind – pick a book with a beautiful colourful cover
The Winter of the Witch (Winternight Trilogy #3) by Katherine Arden. I decided to go with The Winter of the Witch (Winternight Trilogy #3) because it is one of my most anticipated releases of 2018 and I intitally fell in love with this series because of The Bear and the Nightingales (Winternight Trilogy #1) due to its cover. August 14, 2018, can’t come soon enough.
