Best Hair Accessory
Favorite book sidekick
Princess: The red ribbon in Snow White’s hair.
Book: Ron Weasley from Harry Potter.
Biggest Hair Change
Plot twist that totally caught you off guard
Princess: Anna’s streaks from Frozen.
Book: The Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins. So crazy!
Prettiest Up-Do / Bun
A book or author with the most elegant prose
Princess: Princess Tiana! I love the The Princess and The Frog. So elegant and gorgeous!
Book: To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee. I was assigned to read this book during the summer before ninth grade, and I fell in love. It’s one of several books that I strive to re-read every year.
Most Bounce / Body
Book that bounces between multiple time periods
Princess: Ariel, hands down! So beautiful.
Book: I haven’t read it yet, but Wuthering Heights, by Emily Bronte, immediately comes to mind.
Most Intricate Braid
Favorite plot with multiple story-lines that are woven together
Book: I got nothing!
Short & Sweet
A book that’s short and sweet
Princess: Mulan! One of my favorite princesses of all-time.
Book: The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald. This is another book that I typically re-read every year.
Nicest Half-Up / Half-Down
A book / character that you had a lot of ups and downs with
Princess: Belle! I love Beauty and the Beast!
Book: Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, by J.K. Rowling. Such a good book, but it was also the end of the epic series that defined a good portion of my childhood and my life!
Medium & Manageable
The last book you felt right in the middle about
Princess: I’m running out of princesses! I think Moana is the best pick for this one.
Book: Small Town, by Lawrence Block. A good read, but also long, heavy, and graphic. I gave it 3 1/2 stars in my review.
Book: Caraval, by Stephanie Garber. I don’t normally pick books based on cover, but the minute I saw it, I need I wanted to read it. It’s going back on my TBR soon!
Long & Loose
Longest book you read this year
Book: I honestly can’t answer this question. I don’t normally pay attention to the length of books.
A book that swings from POV to POV
Princess: Jasmine! I wanted hair like hers for years.
Book: Allegiant, by Veronica Roth. Many know my disgust with this book. I have trouble reading books with multiple POVs thanks to this one.
A book that made you want to dive straight into the sequel
Princess: Pocahontas! Absolutely gorgeous!
Book: The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins. This book captivated me. I think I had all three books in my possession when I finished this one. If I hadn’t, I think I would have gone straight to the store to pick up Catching Fire the minute I finished the first one. If you haven’t read the trilogy, DO IT!
A book with twists and turns
Book: The Woman in Cabin 10, by Ruth Ware. Holy moly! This was such a good book! It kept me on the edge the entire time. What a ride!
Hair Closest to Your Own
A book that you strongly connected to
Princess: Rapunzel’s hair after it’s cut off. I felt this way when I decided to cut my hair to its current length. I’d grown my hair out from 2013 through 2017, and I’m glad I did since my wedding hairstyle came out beautifully in 2015. But, after a while, the length was frustrating and I really started to not like it. It took FOREVER to blow dry! I decided to cut it off, and I’ve never looked back. I know Al was sad, but I’ve loved the compliments I’ve gotten with my current style. Plus, blow drying is a cinch now!
Book: This is one of the toughest questions. But, I think the proper answer, at this moment, is Grace and Grit: My Fight for Equal Pay and Fairness at Goodyear and Beyond, by Lilly Ledbetter. I greatly enjoy human interest stories, and especially ones written by women. As a woman, and someone who is very much aware of the wage gap, I try to learn more about it. Reading Ledbetter’s story was so encouraging and inspiring to me. This book will remain on my bookshelf forever.
