The questions :

The Jungle Cruise: A book set along the river

Journey to the River Sea, by Eva Ibbotson.

So I read this book in junior school at the age of 10 so I’m honestly very impressed that I remembered that this book exists! It’s a book about an orphan who goes to live with her relatives in Brazil by the amazon river.

Apart from that I have no idea what happens in this book and I haven’t seen it anywhere so do people even know that this exists? I’m sure it is probably at least problematic so I don’t know whether to recommend it to you guys.

If you’ve read this book let me know so that I can be sure that I’m not actually going mental.

Pirates of the Caribbean: A swashbuckling high seas adventure

The Ship of Shadows, by Maria Kuzniar.

You guys should definitely know by now that I love this book with literally all of my heart. It is a wonderful pirate adventure filled with magic and female pirates. It’s just so wonderful and features classic pirate adventure moments such as fighting a kraken as well as a wonderful story about a girl who seeks for an adventure and finds it in an unexpected scenario.

Please, please, please read this book and share it everywhere because it’s simply wonderful and makes me smile thinking about it. I am maybe, slightly obsessed with this book and Maria (go follow her on instagram at @cosyreader for gorgeous photos).

My full review is here so again, feel free to check that out.

The Haunted Mansion: A book with an eerie vibe

I don’t read any eerie books because I am a massive wuss so I don’t really have any books with any eerie vibes, but from memory I did read snook about Mrs Hudson that had some eerie vibes. So my pick is…

The House at Baker Street, by Michelle Birkby.

This book is a Sherlock Holmes story but from the perspective of Mary and Mrs Hudson as they solve a case that Sherlock had turned away. The book has eerie vibes because not only does it in love solving a mystery but the mystery that they solved entwines with one that is similar to Jack the Ripper and it had me creeped out.

That aside, I remember really enjoying this book so if you like Sherlock Holmes give it a go.

Thunder Mountain Railroad: A thrill ride from start to finish

Again, I don’t really read any thriller type books but I get so engrossed in books that almost any book can be a thrill ride from start to finish especially romance novels so…

The Secret Letters, By Taryn Leigh.

I have a full review posted here, so please go and check it out to see all of my thoughts on it. My notes for this were full of question marks and exclamation points as the twists and turns were slowly revealed. I was on edge for the duration of this romance, which has a hint of mystery to it. It does have some triggering content in it so go check out the Book Trigger warnings website for a list of those.

But, the mystery of this book had me on the edge of my seat and while I eventually found out that my first guess was correct i was relieved but also every time a new person came in I immediately suspected them and became slightly paranoid.

Splash mountain: a book set in the Deep South

Dumplin, by Julie Murphy.

This book is set in Clover City, Texas and I’m pretty sure that that is in the Deep South. US people please help me out!

This book is stunning because it covers the story of Willowdean Dickson as she comes to term with her body and learns to love herself by entering the local beauty pageant that her mother helps to run. I have mentioned this before but the movie is also great, it changes some of the things that I loved about the book, and I’m pretty sure that it’s still on Netflix so if you can’t read the book go give it a watch.

Cinderella Castle: A book with a castle

The Crowns of Croswald, by D.E.Night.

This book actually feature several castles!

Again, the full review of this book is here. I loved this book, it was so whimsical and fun. It starts in a castle and takes part in a castle turned into a school. It’s full of magic and so perfect to be an answer of this wonderful Disney themed book tag.

Like I have said for most of these books, go read it! It’s perfect for people who love HP and kids who would love it as a replacement for HP given the current controversy. The focus of the book is Ivy Lovely, a really lovely protagonist.

Once again, I have a full review posted here so please go check it out and consider reading this amazing book.

Mad Tea Party: A whimsical book

For this book I am going to chose…

The Beast and the Bethany by Jack Meggit-Phillips.

I’m actually only half way through this book as I’m writing this currently and omg I am loving this whimsical and funny book. It has currently made me laugh out loud a good amount because Jack Meggit-Phillips is wickedly funny and has created a wonderful story and an incredible, complex cast of characters. Bethany is hilarious and cheeky and I just love her with my whole heart.

I am actually on the blog tour for this book and my stop is on the 28th so keep your eyes out for my full on review then, as well as an awesome picture over on my instagram (linked below).

Please make sure that you add this book to your TBR pile and buy it when it comes out on the 3rd September.

Matterhorn Bobsleds: A trek through the mountains

Children of Blood and Bone, by Tomi Adeyemi.

This briefly features a trek through the mountains and I couldn’t think of any other books that involve a trek through the mountains. Once again, the link to my full review is here. And once again I really enjoyed this book, I’m clearly having an amazing reading year as all of the books that i ma reading are usually 4 or 5 star rated.

It also covers a magical journey across a mythical land. I love the fact that it is based on Nigerian culture, it just makes it so interesting to me and adds another layer to the already complex system of magic.

It’s a Small World: A world inspired by another culture

The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini.

I haven’t read this book in a really long time but its based on Afghan culture and I remember this book because while parts of it are harrowing and I remember them making me slightly distraught it ends hopefully and I think that is one of the reason why I really enjoyed it. Sadly, because I read it along time ago I don’t know what I would have rated it, but I imagine it would’ve been quite high.

Once again, you guys should definitely read this because it is incredible and I think that it is important to read it.

Space Mountain: a fast paced space opera

Ender’s Game, by Orson Scott Card.

So, ashamedly I haven’t read this book and have only watched the movie but I can imagine that the book is really good as I love the movie. I can’t really think of much else to say for this answer but if you like space and epic fight scenes go check this one out (or just watch the movie like I did lol).

All the books can be found at the links bellow (Balckwells and Amazon link is affiliate)

Blackwells / Waterstones / Amazon

So there we go, there are my answers to the Disney Parks Book Tag. I really enjoyed this one, not only because I love Disney but also because I love answering tags!

I’m not going to tag anyone in particular so you guys all have my full permission to give this tag ago and say that I tagged you.

I hope that you are well and that you are enjoying my pretty regular posting schedule, maybe I will keep this going for as long as possible?
