The Little Mermaid – a character who is out of their element, a “fish out of water”
America Singer (The Selection by Kiera Cass), because she went from bringing a “lower grade” citizen to royalty. The politics and 34 girls fighting over one guy were a rather large change in lifestyle if I do say so myself.
Cinderella – a character who goes through a major transformation
Poppy North (Secret Vampire by L.J.Smith), she went from being being a normal teenager to being a dying girl. But really she went through 3 transformations, the mental one of living to dying and then human to vampire.
Snow White – a book with an eclectic cast of characters
Cinder from The Lunar Chronicles, really with this one I’m cheating because the series is sort of a rewrite to Snow White, but really the characters in the series are fantastically eclectic.
Sleeping Beauty – a book that put you to sleep
Fallen by Lauren Kate, I found the characters, story line and writing ridiculously stupid. I could not enjoy myself, the same went for the sequel as well as Kate’s other series.
The Lion King – a character who had something traumatic happen to them in childhood
Yelena (Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder), honestly the traumatic event that happened to Yelena is horrific. I don’t want to spoil what happened because it was somewhat an important even in the first book, so that’s all I’ll say.
Beauty and the Beast – A beast of a book (a big book) that you were intimidated by, but found the story to be beautiful
Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas, I wasn’t a big fan of Throne of Glass but Crown of a Midnight was pretty great. So when I finally picked up Heir of Fire I was a little intimidated. It was a great read tho and I’m glad I read it.
Aladdin – a character who gets their wish granted, for better or worse
Mulan – a character who pretends to be someone or something they are not
Will Herondale (The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare), in the first and second novel Will thought he had a curse on him. So in order for it to not harm his loved ones, he had to be someone else then who he truly was.
Toy Story – a book with characters you wish would come to life
The Infernal Devices/ The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. Honestly the world is so put together, it’s just fabulous. I’d live in this world any day.
Disney Descendants – your favorite villain or morally ambiguous character
Manon (Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas), ASDFGHJKLLSUD I JUST LOVE HER. THE EVIL MAKES ME SWOON.
Lilo & Stitch – a character that was introduced as a villain but changed for the better*
Wolf (Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer), he wasn’t really a villain for most of the book, but he was for a while and he picked the high root.
