Disney Parks Book Tag

I was tagged in this super cute tag last week by the wonderfully kind Brittany over at the Perfectly Tolerable blog. She claims to be only ‘perfectly tolerable’ and ‘average-ish’ but in reality she’s such a kind, supportive blogging friend that writes some amazing reviews. If you haven’t checked out her blog yet…. what are you waiting for?!

The Rules:

☆ Mention the creator and link back to original post [Alexandra @ Reading by Starlight]
☆ Thank the blogger who tagged you
☆ Answer the 10 questions below using any genre
☆ Tag 5+ friends
☆ Feel free to copy the heading graphics

The Questions:

I had a hard time coming up with a book for this one! All I could think of was the second instalment in the Dark Hunter series that follows Talon, the intelligent Dark Hunter that prefers to be elusive and lives near a swamp (they count as rivers right?). He even has a pet alligator!

I ADORED this sea-adventure. Poppy’s endless spirit and ability to cause mayhem was not only hilarious but endearing. Poor Captain Andrew had a lot to deal with when Poppy became a stow-away aboard his ship!

Told in verse, The Art of Taxidermy deals with some pretty gruesome (at least for me) themes of a child’s passion concerning the art of taxidermy. I mean… it’s great to have a passion but if my kid started bringing dead squirrels home to stuff them I’d be a little unnerved!

As one of my first space-set adventures, Illuminae had me completely hooked from the very first page to the last! It’s a shame the rest of the books in the series seemed quite repetitive but alas there’s nothing to do about that. At least the first book was brilliantly good!

I’m currently reading this book for next month’s book club and it’s set along the North Carolina coast. The book’s description of the natural environment so far has been nothing less than spell-binding.

While I didn’t enjoy this book very much, the castle of Emberfall played a prominent role in this book and it was the first one I could think of for this theme.

What more whimsy do you need than falling down the rabbit hole and embarking on a full-fledged adventure? My favourite was always the Cheshire Cat!

If anything, almost this entire story was about trekking through wilderness, plains, forests and mountains in search of help after having crash landed on a planet. While it’s not my favourite book from both of these authors it was still an enjoyable read.

While this story was a DNF for me, the strong latin culture and themes set within it make it suitable for this category. This is one of those books that I had such high hopes for. Unfortunately, the story never seemed to click for me.

Aurora Rising was a book I had to read as I’d fallen in love with the duo of Kaufman and Kristoff’s writing after having read Illuminae. This was a fast-paced adventurous story featuring kick-ass characters and a squad I’d love to join. Fin will always have my heart! I’m counting down the days until Aurora Burning (THREE) !!

  1. Great answers, Jen! I still have to do this tag too and I think Crawdads is definitely going to be a popular one for the deep south prompt 🤣 I still have so many of these on my TBR but ugh the covers for These Broken Stars and We Set the Dark on Fire are just so stunning 😍

    • Haha, it wasn’t until the Deep South prompt that I realised I hadn’t read many books with that theme. The covers are beautiful aren’t they?? I hope you enjoy them more than I did!

    • Have I read many books by Quinn? I’ve read them all (no joke) 😂😂 I tend to go through phases where I adore semi-trashy historical romances. I enjoyed Quinn’s Bridgerton series but prefer the Rokesbys (which are like a spin-off). Although if you’re interested in dipping your toes in to historical romance I’d recommend Lisa Kleypas’ Wallflowers series (though they can be a bit repetitive) and Ravenel series (a bit more daring). They’re charming, witty and perfect for a Sunday’s read. I wouldn’t say they’re literary works of art but are comfort reads for me when I want something light and fun. Sorry for the babbling… I could go on forever about this genre 😂 ❤

      • I want to read Quinn… wait for this explanation… purely because on my blog I have no reviews written about books from an author whose surname begins with Q and every time I go to my review AtoZ author page that empty Q slot calls out to me….. Am I or am I not the most utterly ridiculous human ever?? 😂😂😂😂 So the Rokesbys are better, interesting. I read somewhere that the first Bridgerton book had a female character that mounted a male character without his consent …yes mounted was the word used in the review 🙈 and it had me second guessing whether or not I want to read a book by her…. but that Q Jen…. that Q calls to me 😂😂😂😂

      • I completely understand the need for filling in the Q spot 😂😂 I remember the scene you’re talking about with the whole ‘mounted’ incident with Daphne. That definitely wasn’t my fav by Quinn. The Other Miss Bridgerton was a more whimsical, fun novel that can still be enjoyed without having to read the rest in either series. I think you may like it as Poppy is independent (and intelligent!) and Captain Andrew tends to be a gentleman for (most) of the book. I hope you enjoy one of her books. Let me know how they go 🙂

  2. Oooooh – I LOVED your answers, Jen! Funnily enough I just finished re-reading These Broken Stars and I found that I loved it even more. I forgot just how eerie and desolate Lilac and Tarver’s trek feels. That moment on the plains when Lilac hears the man’s voice made my blood run cold! ❤
