The Once Upon A Time Book Tag

It’s been awhile since I’ve done any blog tags, and this seems like the perfect one to start back with. I first saw it on Rebekah’s blog, and she left an open nomination. (The list of prompts is on this post as well.

Cinderella—a book that changed your life

The Bible. I can’t think of any other books that have hugely impacted me.

Sleeping Beauty—a book that took you forever to finish

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Jules Verne | Anderson Design Group

20,000 Leagues Under The Sea by Jules Verne. I had to read it for school, and I wasn’t a huge fan. I got more into it as the book progressed though. It took about 3 weeks to read- usually, I find a book and read it straight through whether I like it or not, so I can move on to the next book.

A Thousand and One Nights—a book you couldn’t stop reading

Crickets Don’t Cry by Charles Martin. It was a bittersweet tale, filled with heart and hope. The little girl, Annie, was so sweet and filled with life even though she was facing serious health problems. I loved the emotional depth of the story.

Little Red Riding Hood—a book you recently read in an unfamiliar genre

The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club by Wanda Brunstetter. The Amish genre isn’t something I’m a huge fan of, by my sister read it recently and raved about how good it was, so I read it. It was about what I expected, decent but nothing earthshattering.

The Wild Swans—a book with your favorite sibling relationships

Rilla of Ingleside by L. M. Montgomery. Anne’s six children have a delightful camaraderie, and I love the relationship between Rilla and Walter, especially. As Rilla grows and matures, they grow closer. It’s overall a bittersweet tale with a tragic middle and a joyous end.

Snow White—a book filled with beautiful prose

Winnie The Pooh by A. A. Milne. This book is so sweet and beautiful, and makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Rapunzel – a book you procrastinated on reading after buying

Finding Quiet by Jamie Grace. Wait, let me explain! I bought it while we were in Florida and saved it until the car ride home a few days later. I really wanted to read it though! I don’t buy books a lot, and I only get books from the library that I want to read.

(Ooh, a book I’ve procrastinated on buying is Behind the Lights: The Extraordinary Story of a Mum and Her Family by Helen Smallbone. I really want to read it, I’m just to cheap to buy it. I’m going to look for it at the library though!)

The Little Mermaid – a book that took you on a magical journey

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. This is another of my favorite books- EVER! It is so sweet and sad, and I love the mystical, mysterious aspects of it.

The Frog Prince – a book you’d like to turn into a frog because you hated it so much

Green by Tedd Dekker. Still, the judgement sounds a little harsh. I’m not into the horror/sci-fi/fantasy/thriller/Christian genre of ALL the things smashed together.

Peter Pan – a book that reminds you of your childhood

Mike Mulligan and the Steam Shovel. We read this book a lot when I was little, and I always loved the happy ending! I never could figure out why nobody planned a way for her to get out of the basement though…

The Goose Girl – a book that you had low expectations for, but ended up loving

The Dead Don’t Dance and Maggie by Charles Martin (combined in one book as Down Where My Love Lies). I was expecting a cheesy sort of novel, and a boring/predictable plot line. It wasn’t either of those- much to my delight. It was a deep love story of a love that never gives up hope, and never stops believing. Trust me, you’ll cry.

Hansel and Gretel – a book that made you hungry

Six-Dinner Sid by Inga Moore. It’s not about humans eating, but the cat is eating every other page, so it really does make one contemplate food. It is a kid’s book, but an adorable one about a genius cat.

And that’s that! Thanks for leaving an open nomination, Rebekah! I also leave an open nomination for anyone who loves answering questions, doing blog tags and reading books!

Have you read any of these books? What books should I find to read next?
