Disney was such a formative thing for me as a kid. I used to watch the movies all the time, and my mom tells me that my favourite when I was really little was 101 Dalmatians. I’d ask her over and over to watch ‘Dogs’. However, I was never super into the villains. When I got older, I got a bit more of an understanding of the character and when I watch the movies now, I understand the depth of their characterization. I’m still not much of a villain lover today, but they’re really interesting.
Cruella DeVille: A book that made you angry
- Birdie by Tracey Lindberg bothered me. It’s a neat book because it’s got an interesting style of writing, and the story itself is interesting. However, it’s set in a town near me and I was super disappointed to find that it didn’t seem like the author put any actual research into what the town was like. It fell pretty flat in that sense.
Queen of Hearts: A book that made you sad
- I read Love, Heather by Laurie Petrou this year, and it was the first time in a really long time that a book emotionally devastated me. The last time I cried that hard, I think I was reading The Way I Used to Be. It wasn’t my favourite book, but I desperately related to the loss that the main character felt when she lost her friends. I have a review of this up on the blog.
Scar: A book you’d never read again
- I don’t think I will ever read This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab again. It was an interesting story, but I didn’t love it and I don’t think I will want to revisit that world. I know that a lot of people really love Victoria Schwab, and I’m open to trying other things by her, but this one just wasn’t for me.
Jafar: A book you’d want to live in
- It’s such a cliche for me to say that I want to live in the world of Harry Potter, but I do. It’s been such a consistent home for me over the years, and I still really love the magic of it all. I want a wand and apparition and the adventure of it all.
Ursula: A book you’d always recommend
- I will always recommend The Female of the Species by Mandy McGinnis. It’s such a fantastic book, and I really couldn’t put it down. It was so engaging and well written. I loved it.
