Like a lot of 80s and 90s kids, I’m a big fan of Disney animated movies. I grew up on movies like The Little Mermaid and Aladdin. I remember when the movie Beauty and the Beast came out… I was OBSESSED. Seriously, I think my brother and I made our parents suffer through that movie more times than should be acceptable 😂 It was our Frozen. So I was super hyped when I was tagged to do the Beauty and the Beast Book Tag! Thank you so much to Riddhi @ Whispering Stories for tagging me.

#1. Tale as Old as Time – A popular theme, trope, or setting you will never get bored of
BOOKS ABOUT BOOKS! Which, let’s be honest, is very on brand for this tag 😂 Y’all know Belle would love a book with bookish themes! Seriously, though, I cannot get enough of books that have some kind of bookish theme. It’s probably because I find it easy to connect with the bookish main characters and the themes just speak to my nerdy soul. Whatever it is, books about books are my happy place 💕 Some recent favorites would be The Starless Sea, Tilly and the Bookwanderers, and The Ten Thousand Doors of January.
#2. Belle – A book you bought for merely its cover that is just as beautiful on the inside
I knew next to nothing about The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen when I first spotted it at the library. The cover completely hooked me and I checked it out immediately. Thankfully, the book turned out to be just as amazing on the inside as it was on the outside! This book and the second in the duology, The Faithless Hawk, are now two of my favorite books of all time. I can’t wait to read whatever Margaret Owen writes next!
