Welcome to the Pixar Book Tag, which I was tagged by the awesome Joey @ Thoughts and Afterthoughts.
I’m actually very happy that I get tagged to do this. Pixar movies are my childhood. Basically, a majority of Disney shows and movies that were released around the 00’s are my childhood. I always enjoy every single one, no matter what. All of them are just great and can’t choose which ones are the best. Just when I look at this picture, I look back at the time when I am a kid. Memories, am I right?
So without any further ado, let’s get started.
Toy Story — A book where you wanted the characters to come to life
I really want Paige and Max from The Start of Me and You (Emery Lord) to come to life. Why? They’re book nerds, that’s why. It’s great I have my book friends on Twitter, but I feel a bit lonely with talking about books in real life / school. I mean I have one but we just have different tastes in reading, like literally. Having them would just be awesome. We can just hang out at the bookstore as a weekend hangout place if it happened to be like 5 minutes away from my house.
Though the only problem about them is that I would feel like I’m the third wheel of the 3. Why? Well it involves with the ending of the book, well, their relationship, so it’s spoiler-y to give you the reason. But if you have read it, then you might know.
A Bugs Life— A character who goes through a transformation
Twig’s mother from Nightbird (Alice Hoffman). I kind of seen her actions kind of questionable. I mean she made herself and her family as recluses of the town. And she didn’t wanted to talk about her relationship with her ex-husband. But in the end, she rekindled her relationship with him and now Twig can hang out with Julia whenever and James could love Agate now.
Monsters Inc. — A strong/scary character develops a soft side for someone else
AIDAN from Illuminae (Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff). When this A.I. was first introduced in the book, you just want to know this: WHY WOULD HE DO THIS TO THEM??? WHY??? That just makes you so angry that you wish AIDAN should die. But then, he just have that soft side I never knew when he sees Kady. And then you think again: Maybe you shouldn’t die. And well, you got your wish so you can’t do anything about it.
Finding Nemo — “P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney” A book that has an address or quote that’s burned into your memory forever
I actually don’t have a quote that I’ll remember for the rest of my life, surprisingly. Maybe in the future and with more books read, there will be a possibility that a quote will be forever locked in my brain.
The Incredibles — Coolest Book Family
The Turner family or Audrey’s family in Finding Audrey (Sophie Kinsella). They are just the most dysfunctional and embarrassing to have, but I just love for what they are. Sure we have that mom who forbids his son to play video games or that she seems to be mentally insane for trying to get his son to be, well, not play video games, but she’s pretty cool when you read the end. Pretty much the coolest family I have seen in reading YA or even MG…that is not from the Harry Potter books, because that’s too obvious.
Cars 1, 2, 3 — A book that keeps getting sequels you feel are not needed
I know I have only read the first book of this series so far but The Selection series (Kiera Cass), specifically Eadlyn’s Selection. I think leaving The One as the end of this series would be great. I mean I hear that the second part of the series is well, not great. I mean you are saying that The Bachelorette is worst than The Bachelor but if you’re trying to say that, please, don’t write it if you’re implying it.
Ratatouille — A book featuring a non-human/humanoid
Iko from the Lunar Chronicles series (Marissa Meyer). I think that’s all I gotta say for this, becuase you know why, for those who read the series.
Wall-E — A book that made you lonely
Well I’m not sure how books can make you “lonely”. Maybe say it makes you sad? But for this prompt, I would say every book I read. I mean think about this. When you’re reading, it’s just you & a book. So technically, wouldn’t that mean reading makes you lonely? Unless you have some sort of reading party or a group reading or that you’re going to read a section aloud in the class / group, then it’s wouldn’t be considered “lonely”.
Up — A book whose characters quickly made you become emotionally invested in
Once again, the award goes to Kady and Ezra from Illuminae. I know they’re just snarky, smart, athletic, or brave, but they were more than that. Well if I tell you more, then you will get spoiled. It’s not my fault those scenes made me cried. And those who have read it…and also LOVED it, then you might know what I’m talking about. I mean you should be shocked after reading it. It’s one of the reasons you should love Illuminae. I happened to love it because of that.
Brave — Name a book with a strong mother/daughter relationship
Sadly, I have not find one book that contains a strong relationship between a mother and its daughter. I have one between mother and son, which is Ryden and his mother in What You Left Behind (Verdi), but I can’t just break the rules for this prompt…which I actually did now that I just typed it out. Oh well. Whatever then. But if you have read a book that does have a great mother / daughter connection, then tell me in the comments below because I’m pretty much lacking that in my shelf.
Inside Out — Name a book that could be one of your core memories
Of course, it would be the whole Geronimo Stilton books written by, weirdly, Geronimo Stilton, which is about a mouse who happens to be an editor of a newspaper, and writes out his journeys (these books), but I founded out like months after I grew out of the books that it was a pseudonym of a female Italian author. But anyway, I just knew in my one of my memories (get it?), I remember that it was one of the first books I have gotten in Barnes & Noble (though I was not sure why I went there in the first place at the time). And reading them was how I lead to have this love of reading…and going to B&N more often. I don’t know where I would be if I haven’t read that series and the spinoff series of Geronimo Stilton. I just know that I’m happy to read these books and how thankful I am that I did so.
