1. The Little Mermaid – a character who is out of their element, a “fish out of water”
Emily from Morgan Matson’s Since You’ve Been Gone. Emily is a shy girl who doesn’t like to step out of her comfort zone, but she is forced to when she receives a list of crazy things to do before summer ends.
2. Cinderella – a character who goes through a major transformation
Elisa from Rae Carson’s The Girl of Fire And Thorns. Elisa starts out as a stuck up princess who doesn’t do anything for herself. She quickly adapts to the situation at hand and becomes an independent person who learns to take care of herself.
3. Snow White – a book with an eclectic cast of characters
I feel like everyone has said the same book series for this question, but that is because it fits perfectly. The whole Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan has one of the most diverse group of characters I have ever read about. Each character varies when it comes to age, race, and personality.
4. Sleeping Beauty – a book that put you to sleep
The only book that I have not been able to find a single factor in that I liked was The Maze Runner by James Dashner. So many people enjoyed this book, and I really wanted to, but I could not get into it. I didn’t like the way the characters talked, the plot felt like it got lost, and I didn’t like a single character.
5. The Lion King – a character who had something traumatic happen to them in childhood
This seems like another obvious answer, but I choose Harry Potter. Being locked in a small space under the stairs and constantly being mentally abused seems pretty traumatic to me.
6. Beauty and the Beast – A beast of a book (a big book) that you were intimidated by, but found the story to be beautiful
I’ve never really been “intimidated” by a big book, but if I had to choose, it would be The Final Empire (The Mistborn series) by Brandon Sanderson.
7. Aladdin – a character who gets their wish granted, for better or worse
Meryl from Gail Carson Levine’s The Two Princesses of Bamarre. I can’t go into any more detail because it would spoil the book.
8. Mulan – a character who pretends to be someone or something they are not
I spent so long trying to come up with one for this question, but I eventually chose Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld. I read this book years ago, but I remember that the main character dresses up as a boy so she can participate in the British Air Service
9. Toy Story – a book with characters you wish would come to life
Inkheart by Cornelia Funke is the first book that I read completely on my own when I was seven, and I have read it again since then. I think that the cast of characters in this book would be both funny and terrifying in real life.
10. Disney Descendants – your favorite villain or morally ambiguous character
I have so many, so I am just going to quickly name three of them.
Luke from the Percy Jackson series
Magnus from the Falling Kingdoms series
LeLoup from the Along Came a Wolf series
