Alina answered the questions from a similar tag (A Song Title Book Tag) back in May, so I thought… why not add a new one? If you want to watch the original video, go to BrunetteBibliophile.  I love the fact that this tag comes with Disney songs – hence the name – and the connection between music and the questions is more visible. I love Disney, I love the books I chose so here they are, brought together.

  1. Part of Your World – What book world would you change yourself for so you could be a part of that world?

I almost can’t believe that I’m writing this, but… Harry Potter. Must I explain this? That world is awesome! I just can’t really decide if I’d want to go as a child or as an adult. Maybe both, so I could visit it twice. Or… I’d also go to Hercule Poirot’s world, regardless of the book’s title.

  1. Let It Go – What book did you not want to finish because you loved it so much?

There were quite a few, actually. I remember reading Promisiunea îngerului (La Promesse de l’ange by Frederic Lenoir and Violette Gabesos) around seven years ago. I loved that book and wanted more with every page I turned. The part of the action set in the past was magical, I could have read a whole series based on it.

  1. Beauty and the Beast – What book do you think is/will be timeless?

Choosing from my personal favourites, I’d say Elizabeth Kostova’s The Historian. If Dracula made it, so can this book. Also, I honestly believe that The Chronicles of Narnia is and will continue to be timeless. I see no reason why it shouldn’t be so.

  1. So This is Love – What book were you hesitant to read at first but ended up loving?

John Grisham’s A Time to Kill. I haven’t read any of his books in quite a few years, but I remember my first John Grisham book and how I had no idea what to expect from it. I was hesitant before starting new novels written by this author because they weren’t exactly what I was looking for. That’s what happened with A Time to Kill (I read it in Romanian, …Și vreme e ca să ucizi) and I ended up loving it.

  1. Friend Like Me – Which character would you like to be your best friend?

Count Saint Germain, without a doubt. He doesn’t even have to be my best friend, he could be just a friend. But I’d love talk to him, to learn about his adventures. And, if I were to step into his world, join him on his travels. Also, I’d want to be the best friend of the unnamed narrator from The Historian. There’s nothing I dislike when it comes to this character and there are so many questions I’d like to ask her.

  1. Reflection – What book really made you think/changed the way you viewed things?

To be honest, I don’t know. I mean, there are many books which make me want to learn more, to search for answers and information. Let’s go with Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza by Gloria Anzaldúa. I recommend it and hopefully I’ll be able to reread it this year.

    1.I think that “Alice in Wonderland” is a good example. I like the world created by the author.
    2.Just every single book of Agatha Christie. Especially those with Hercule Poirot as the protagonist.
    3.Hmm… For sure “The Survivors” by Erin Hunter is and will be timeless, at least for me.
    4.Neil Gaiman’s “Star Dust”. I have heard a lot about this book before reading it. Good reviews, bad reviews. But honestly it was not a book that I will enjoy because I read other books by Neil Gaiman and I didn’t like them. This was the beginning but as I spent nights reading it I ended up loving it.
    5.I’d like to be Robert Langdon’s friend not only because he is my favourite character of Dan Brown’s books. I’d like to solve every historic mystery with him, without being in trouble.
    6.The very first book that made me change the way I viewed the books was Jack London’s book “White Fang”. I read it when I was in third grade and since then I’ve liked adventure books as the one I mentioned .
    7.Everyone who is a bookworm or who considers that books are part of our life .

    1. I don’t think that I would like to live in the world of any book, but for the tag’s sake I will choose the world of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, because when I was little I wanted to follow the yellow brick road along with Dorothy and her strange friends.
    2. Any Victorian book starting with “Jane Eyre”, “Tess of the d’Urbervilles”, “David Copperfield” and so on, because the atmosphere and some of the characters are addictive.
    3. I don’t usually read newly released books, because I don’t know what to expect from them and the old ones I adore are for certain timeless because they stood the test of time.
    4. I was hesitant to read “God Was Born in Exile” by Romanian author Vintilă Horia because of the vague title that made me wonder if this is a novel filled with religious dogmas or something else less tiresome. Luckily, it’s about a spiritualised version of Latin poet Ovid. The hints about religion are present, but they are used at the right time through more or less obvious symbols.
    5. I guess that I haven’t found yet that character who would be my best friend, but I would like to meet the honest and caring Peggotty and the witty and independent Aunt Betsey.
    6. “The Joys of Motherhood” by Nigerian-born author Buchi Emecheta made me better understand some aspects of the Nigerian culture: marriage, motherhood, the defined roles of men and women in the society and the ethnic conflicts within the nation.
    7. Anyone who loves reading is invited to leave a comment.

      I also want to read “The Joys of Motherhood”. Do you still have the book?

      • Alina Andreea Cătărău on June 30, 2015 at 11:00 am

        Yes, I have the book. Just tell me when you want to borrow it. 😀

          That’s wonderful! 😀 Maybe next week, when I return home…
