A side-effect of NaNoWriMo is that I listen to a lot (and I mean a lot) of Disney songs while I’m writing. So I thought it’d be fun if I matched some Disney songs to books.
Because that’s what my sleep-deprived brain comes up with.
A Whole New World – Aladdin
I match it with…A Thousand Pieces of You – Claudia Gray
Because, you know, parallel dimensions? GET IT? Although A Thousand Pieces of You obviously needed more flying carpets.
Can You Feel the Love Tonight – The Lion King
I match it with…Anna and the French Kiss – Stephanie Perkins
Basically? Cutest. Book. Ever. Etienne is mine.
Under the Sea – The Little Mermaid
I match it with…Atlantia – Allie Condie
I’m still disappointed this one doesn’t have mermaids, but it IS set under the sea.
You’ve got a Friend in Me – Toy Story
I match it with…Code Name Verity – Elizabeth Wein
Leave me alone. I’m still sobbing. But this is still one of the best books I’ve read about friendships.
God Help the Outcasts – Hunchback of Notre Dame
I match it with…Since You’ve Been Gone – Morgan Matson
Because, you know, Emily is kind of socially awkward (not at ALL like me, of course…)
Okay, so I’m dramatising a bit by saying she’s an OUTCAST. My blog, my rules. Deal with it.
Spoonful of Sugar – Mary Poppins
I match it with…Flirty Dancing – Jenny McLachlan
Flirty Dancing is pretty much the cutest book I’ve ever read. It’s ADORABLE. It’s light and fluffy and full of dancing, and it helps the medicine of homework go down.
When She Loved Me – Toy Story
I match it with…The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas
Here, “me” is Sam. And we all know what happens to him.
I’m going to start crying now. This scene in Toy Story is the saddest in film history, and pairing it with The Assassin’s Blade is a cruel mix.
(don’t you love it?)
Poor Unfortunate Souls – The Little Mermaid
I match it with…The Fault in Our Stars – John Green
Do I even need to talk about this one?
I’ve Got a Dream – Tangled
I match it with…The Intern – Gabrielle Tozer
This one’s all about Josie pursuing her dream of being a journalist. As if I haven’t talked about this incredible book enough! PS not long until Faking It!!!
So that’s my attempts at matching YA books to Disney songs.
Tell me in the comments some you’d pair up! Or make your own post. Or just soak in my amazing words (though this is a given).
And also – what’s your favourite Disney song?
