Today, I’m bringing you one of those wonderful ideas you come up with when you’re totally supposed to be thinking of something else. That’s right, instead of doing other blog posts that I’m terribly behind on, I came up with a whole new idea that just popped right into my head. But don’t you ever realize something is just too good of idea and lets you talk even MORE about your love of Disney Princesses? Yeah, I had to share.
So, my plan is that every Saturday, I will be bringing you a new Book Princess Reviews segment (event, tag, series? I’m not sure, let’s just go with segment) where I will showcase an epic Disney Princess and talk about what books she would be reading if she was, you know, real (of course, you’re still alive in my heart, princesses ;)). Anyway, it will be called The Princesses Read, and each week, I will bring 3 – 5 stories that I think each Princess would be gobbling up based on their interests, personalities, and more. At the end of each one, I will also be giving a few recommendations on where you can find more of their retellings or stories with super similar elements.
Want to know the very first Princess I will be showcasing?
*princess drumroll please*
Tiana! She is easily in my top 5 favorite princesses, and if you’re a follower of my blog, you know she’s a 5 crown princess all the time. She was the first one I came up with the idea for, and I just finished Frogkisser! by Garth Nix, so I’m thinking it was fate. This Saturday, I will be sharing what Tiana might be reading if she was here with us today in the book world!
Also, since you know there is a limited amount of “official” Disney Princesses, I will be showing some love as well for some of the other epic Disney leading ladies such as Megara, Wendy, Tinker Bell, Alice, and more. And shhhh…one non-Disney Princess might appear as well by the end of The Princesses Read.
So what do you think? Does it sound like something you would be interested? Do you think my Princess love has gone to new heights? Are you sick of getting more book recommendations? 😄 Let’s discuss in the comments below.
I’m also bringing you another announcement today. Look at me, dual information sending! Anyway, it’s been a long time coming – mostly because I’ve been too lazy – but Moana is officially being added to the Princess rating system. That’s right – there is a new Princess rating that any books can receive…but to get a Moana rating, it’s gonna be a bit hard because she is basically the holy grail for this Book Princess.
If this book is getting a Moana rating, that means it’s the holy grail of books – it has me laughing, crying, and feeling so much my Book Princess heart will burst. It has a strong, fierce heroine, a crazy thrilling adventure, and some addicting songs…er, maybe not songs but probably some writing? I love everything about this book, and beg it to sing “You’re Welcome” to me daily. I will always love this book to pieces just like I do with Moana, and you will not stop hearing me praise it forever. To get a Moana visit instead of rating, it might involve some epic sea adventure or a splash in some uncharted, thrilling waters.
Yes, it is totally throwing me off that she doesn’t have a white background like my other Princesses do, but it’s just so pretty. Her look totally will be how dreamy I’m looking at this book, too, if it gets her rating.
And done! That’s it for this Book Princess today. Too much Disney Princess yet? 😉 Do you have any books that remind you of my Moana rating? Let’s discuss even more in the comments below!
