Last month, Mandy and Sha from Book Princess Reviews created this splendid tag to celebrate the amazing Disney movie that is Hercules!
With the announcement of the live action of Disney’s Hercules on the way, I couldn’t be more excited to do this tag!! This movie has a great story, yes, but it also has some of the greatest songs! Shower concerts are always pumping when a Hercules song pops in 😉
Zero to Hero – Name a Character That You Didn’t Think Much Of At First But Ended Up a Favorite
Lee – Fireborne by Rosaria Munda
I didn’t love Lee at the beginning of this story because he was just so golden-boy and some of the stuff he did I just couldn’t get behind. Nevertheless, I really warmed to him in the end. He made some really tough choices and I had to give him credit for them!
The Muses – Name Some Characters/Books/Authors That Inspire You
Characters: Laia of Serra, Cress Darnell, Nina Beaulieu
Books: Gods of Jade and Shadow, The Penderwicks, Empire of Sand
Authors: Sabaa Tahir, Marie Lu, Marissa Meyer
Megara – Name a Character Who Has to Do Morally Complex Things To Save Themselves/Others/World
Viridiana – Untamed Shore by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Oh yess she does some shady things. I mean other characters do even worse things, but I really liked reading about Viridiana getting herself out of some serious trouble that she is lured into. This crime story has lots of morally complex things going on so I definitely recommend picking it up if you’re into that!
Hercules – Character That Goes Through a Huge Change
Maia Tamarin – Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim
One transformation is obviously the disguise as the boy to enter the competition and so on, but I feel like Maia goes through a lot in this book. She learns so much and embraces new techniques in the hope of becoming the best. Plus she goes through a rather BIG and DANGEROUS transformation at the end so…
I Won’t Say (I’m in Love) – Name Your Favorite Romance With the Miscommunication Trope
Oh geez, what romance doesn’t have this trope!!! Honestly I don’t love this trope, but if I had to choose one book that I love…
The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory
I’m pretty sure this book has miscommunication or rather lack of communication in it. I really enjoyed how the author explored the struggle between the characters though and 10/10 I would read it again!
Hades – Name a Villain That Stole the Show
Adelina Amouteru – The Young Elites by Marie Lu
This trilogy follows the villain origin story of a young girl so of course she steals the show! It is action-packed, magical and heart-wrenching all in one! I love this trilogy and it deserves your love too, especially those of you who love villainous characters.
