Hello, a tag today! I’m back after taking a week off for health reasons, so I figured a tag would be a good segue into a normal posting schedule.
I was tagged by Katy @Bookbinderway, you should go read her stuff she’s nice and wonderful.
Strictly speaking, not all of my selections will be ‘princesses’ but they’ll at least fall within the Disney domain because capitalism.
Link back to Kyera’s original post on Kyera’s Library and Mandy’s post on Book Princess Reviews so they can see all your answers! Be sure to do this via pingback, we don’t get notified if you just tag our URLs.

The twist at the end of Prodigy by Marie Lu
I read this book a while back, and the twist at the end of this book definitely surprised me, thought not in a good way. Notice I never finished the trilogy.
Prettiest Up-do/Bun | Book/Author With Most Elegent Prose
The ‘bun’ from Bambi. GET IT. BUN.
The writing in Senlin Ascends by Josiah Bancroft
An example from near the beginning of the book. For context, the main character has just witnessed multiple deaths around him:
He especially delighted in the old tales, the epics in which heroes set out on some impossible and noble errand, confronting the dangers in their path with fatalistic bravery. Men often died along the way, killed in brutal and unnatural ways; they were gored by war machines, trampled by steeds, and dismembered by their heartless enemies. Their deaths were boastful and lyrical and always, always more romantic than real. Death was not an end. It was an ellipsis. There was no romance in the scene before him. There were no ellipses here. The bodies lay upon the ground like broken exclamation points.

Best Pony | Book That Swings From POV To POV
Mulan’s pony. GET IT. PONY. HAH.

Unlike the first novel in the series, in this second one, we get the thoughts and schemings of multiple people. Ugh I’m loving it so far.
Stunningly Straight | Book That Made You Want to Dive Straight Into the Sequel
Pocahontas’s hair. It’s so lovely
