The Beauty and the Beast Book Tag

I saw this tag done by Steph at A Little But A Lot a few years ago, and Charlotte at Charlotte, Somewhere last week and I couldn't resist having a go myself!

The Beauty and the Beast Book Tag

The Beauty and the Beast Tag

“Tale A Old As Time” – a popular theme, trope, or setting you will never get bored of reading. 

Slow burn romances. Yes, please. I absolutely love a slow-burn. Something like A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer.

Belle – a book you bought for a beautiful cover, that’s just as beautiful inside. 

The Deathless Girls by Kiran Millwood Hargrave. It's a book I had heard a lot of mixed things about, but I read it in a single day and absolutely loved it. The cover is stunning.

Beast – a book you didn’t expect much from but pleasantly surprised you. 

Weirdly, Skyward by Brandon Sanderson, which I absolutely loved! I am always apprehensive about space-sci-fi for Reasons (idk) and then I end up really enjoying them!

Gaston – a book everyone loves but you don’t.

Basically every Cassandra Clare book, I am just not a fan. And I have tried many times. I just cannot get in to them. Weirdly, I really like the The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones film with Lily Collins.

Lefou – a loyal sidekick you can’t help but love more than their counterpart. 

M-Bot from Skyward by Brandon Sanderson! The quirky, sassy ship was my favourite character in both books, even if he was a much smaller part of the second book.

Mrs Potts, Chip, Lumier, and Cogsworth – a book that helped you through a difficult time or that taught you something valuable. 

Suddenly Single by Carol Wyver really helped me when I ended up suddenly single myself. It was a fantastic book that helped me find myself again and gave me some hope.

“Something There” – a book or series that you weren’t into at first but picked up towards the end. 

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas. It's a series that definitely grew on me, and by the end I really enjoyed it a lot.

“Be Our Guest” – a fictional character you’d love to have over for dinner. 

Ead from The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon. Basically because it's Ead, and if you've read Priory then I think you'll understand.

Have you done this tag? 
Which book helped you through a difficult time?


  1. Love this tag! So many great books and characters. :)

  2. This is such a fun tag! I really need to read A Curse So Dark and Lonely soon!

  3. I'm the same about Cassandra Clare! I just don't like the books. I also really enjoyed the film though!

  4. I would absolutely want to have dinner with Ead!
