Good day everyone!

I was tagged by Clemence from Words & Dreams for this Book Tag. Thank you very much. Do check her lovely blog! If you wanted to find thorough book reviews or to read some great thoughts, you will find it there!


  1. Thanks the creator
  2. Answers the questions – honestly!
  3. Tag at least four people

Thank  you bookfandom1001 for this interesting tag challenge! At first I’m actually confused if I need to answer the questions alone or giving another suitable examples from other books. No matter, I’ll answer them honestly and share some good characters if possible.


Belle: someone who is willing to sacrifice themselves for someone they love?

Yes she is! Remember when her dad being kept prison by Beast and she exchanged her freedom instead? Even though she broke the promise soon after.

Sadly, I cannot any character that has this kind of value at the moment. Maybe Jack from Titanic, as we know instead of deciding to stay alive, he decided to stay in the water. (Yeah, there is room for two, I know. Imagine if Jack alive and we will have a happy ending.)

Beast: A good character development? 

I must say it is amazing how Beast actually changed! He was short tempered and unrefined manner for a prince but remember when Gaston charged the castle and put an arrow to Beast? He did not fight at all because in my opinion, he lost his will to live. When love leaves you, your life leaves as well!

I know better characters for this one, Ms Elizabeth Bennet! If you read Pride and Prejudice  (I’m sorry, I tend to hold myself by giving reference from this book, I can’t). Being judgmental can truly do you wrong.

Lumiere: A character that gives good relationship advice?

This good for courting and wooing Lumiere gives good relationship advice. But not that good! He is the romantic playful type of guy but I would stay away from taking his relationship advice.

Lola from Our Chemical Hearts will be someone I would trust my relationship with. A good friend and straight forward person too. She knows the best once she saw them!

Cogsworth: A loyal character (a person you can trust?)

He have this peculiar traits of personality but he is loyal enough. He can be worrying too much and all but… loyal.

A loyal character means someone who is dependable and someone you can trust. Gandalf from The Lord Of The Ring hold these values. He fell while fighting Balrog… He’s back. He off to fight Saruman… Alive and back. He said “Look to my coming, at first light, on the fifth day. At dawn, look to the East.” You guessed it  right, he is back again!

Mrs. Potts: A mothering character (a character that you would want as a mum)?

She is indeed! What else can you hope from her. I do wonder if all the kids are actually hers. hurmmm…

Another worth mentioning mothering character would be Kala from Tarzan. You know her, accepting the ‘hairless’ into the community and raising him and love him nonetheless.

Gaston: A character you hate that everybody else loves?

He is a typical narcissist blockhead! I can’t stop to wonder how stupid villagers can be in that story to be awed by him. Yes, I don’t like him… Hate him.

Another character that would fit this one would be The King from Hamlet. Yes, he was Hamlet stepfather, uncle and the person who killed his own brother! A month after he killed his brother, he married his sister-in-law. Even so, not sure to blame him or the queen on this matter.

The Enchantress: A person who put a curse on someone?

Well… You know  how they work… Putting curses here and there. Be it fairy, sorceress or enchantress.  But not really that annoying or pure evil. Beast who was the one who got himself into that mess.

It was from a book titled ‘The Halfian Progeny’ from Shamu Sybil that really annoys me with this curse thing. So basically, whenever that person reached a certain age, he or she will be given a mark or automatically invited (unwillingly) to a different world. Then, they will partake on a tournament that might killed them. Pure evil indeed. And from the current book, it was not mentioned who or  how this system (curse in my opinion) created.

  1. The thing is, you need to read the book perhaps several times to actually understand how the curse came to be. If you can accept the curse on Harry Potter, why can’t you accept a curse on my fictional characters?
