[Awards/Tags] — The Pixar Book Tag

Miscellaneous: Awards/Tags is the tagline to store random posts that don’t really belong elsewhere. They may involve tags, awards, challenges, and other book blogging nonsense.

Awards/Tags
The Pixar Book Tag

I don’t remember watching some of the older Pixar movies but alas I will still do this tag.

Thanks to Charley @ Books and Bakes for tagging me!

Toy Story — A book where you wanted the characters to come to life

Easy. The Knife of Never Letting Go (Patrick Ness) for… *rolls into fetal position and crys uncontrollably*

A Bugs Life— A character who goes through a transformation

Mainly because I just finished The Great American Whatever (Tim Federle), Quinn Roberts — who goes from a struggling almost to something he can be okay with.

Monsters Inc. — A strong/scary character develops a soft side for someone else

While I’d love to say The Darkling from The Grisha trilogy, he turned to shit in the second book (sorry about it). So I’ll just go with The Monster from A Monster Calls.

Finding Nemo — “P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney” A book that has an address or quote that’s burned into your memory forever

It’s probably something nerdy from Socrates or Aristotle if I’m being honest.

The Incredibles — Coolest Book Family

THE DREGS ARE A FAMILY (Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo). I WILL FIGHT YOU.

Cars 1, 2, 3 — A book that keeps getting sequels you feel are not needed

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard. Of course, after reading RQ, there -has- to be a sequel that’s for sure. But I’m not sure Glass Sword is the sequel that was needed. It’s kinda like how The Infinite Sea (Rick Yancey) didn’t really do anything [for me] in terms of plotting for The 5th Wave franchise.

Ratatouille — A book featuring a non-human/humanoid

I think this prompt is looking for a protagonist that’s non-human and I cannot think of one that I’ve read. A book I want to read that has this is The Mechanical (Ian Tregillis).

Wall-E — A book that made you lonely

WHY ARE THESE PROMPTS SUCH A DEBBIE DOWNER?

…Half a King (Joe Abercrombie)? Ugh, I don’t know.

Up — A book whose characters quickly made you become emotionally invested in

Christopher Rowe of The Blackthorn Key (Kevin Sands). I shed a tear, damnit.

Brave — Name a book with a strong mother/daughter relationship

Instead of mother/daughter, I’m going to go with an adoptive side in A.J. Fikry and Maya from The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry (Gabrielle Zevin)

Inside Out — Name a book that could be one of your core memories

The Hunger Games (Suzanne Collins). It got me reading (again).

  1. This is totally irrelevant but I love how your tag pictures say “This is a tag. Literally.” Legit comedic genius. And this tag seems so fun, I love Pixar! Thanks for tagging me!

  2. Much as I love Pixar, when are you gonna stop mentioning The Knife Of Never Letting Go, Joey? My heart can’t take this torture. And I already made my friend watery just describing THAT scene.

  3. The Knife of Never Letting Go….. 😦
    I really did cry uncontrollably the entire book. At one point the boyfriend had to tell me to stop crying over a book, lol.
    Thanks for the tag!

      1. I think I’ll be reading the novellas sometime soon. My love for the Darkling is still going strong. For my Classics course I actually chose him as the perfect tragic Greek hero and wrote a report why I thought why. XD
