Eva over at Coffee, Classics, and Craziness tagged me with this tag that I believe she also created! She knows how much I love The Greatest Showman (2017), so she knew I'd love doing this tag :-) Thanks, Eva!
- answer the questions

- using her graphic is optional, but recommended
~’The Greatest Show’: Name a book that’s as entertaining as a circus
Dragons at Crumbling Castle and Other Stories by Terry Pratchett is EXTREMELY fun. There's a wonderful audiobook version too. I heartily recommend both to people of all ages. The audiobook is actually funnier than reading the book yourself because the reader, Julian Rhind-Tutt, has the most wonderful variety of accents and a dry, ultra-British way of delivering the lines.
~’A Million Dreams’: Name a book that’s set in a fantastical world
Enchanted by Alethea Kontis has one of the most fantastical worlds I've ever encountered. I was agog.
~’Come Alive’: Name a book that makes you outrageously happy
The Blue Castle by L. M. Montgomery is like eating a bowl of delicious ice cream. Or maybe an entire carton.
~’The Other Side’: Name a book that changed your mind about something
The Seven-Per-Cent Solution by Nicholas Meyer made me believe that Sherlock Holmes pastiches were worth reading after all. Some of them, anyway.
~’Never Enough’: Name a book that you’ve re-read more than once
How about The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien? That's actually three books (technically six...) and I've read it half a dozen times.
~’This Is Me’: Name a book with a character that reminds you of yourself
I relate a lot to Anne Elliot in Persuasion by Jane Austen, which is part of why that's my favorite of Austen's novels. I am overdue for a reread and hoping to sneak it in later this summer.
~’Rewrite the Stars’: Name a book with a forbidden romance
I keep overthinking this and trying to find a romance that's totally forbidden like in Romeo and Juliet. But how about a romance that's just frowned upon by society? Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte totally has one of those. Young, poor governess falls in love with approaching-middle-age, rich man. Nobody approves. They don't care. Also, it's my favorite book EVER.
~’Tightrope’: Name a book with an adventurous main character
Constance Kopp, the titular heroine of Girl Waits with Gun by Amy Stewart, is definitely adventurous!
~’From Now On’: Name a book with a wonderful family (related or otherwise)
I'm going to copy Eva on this one, because the found family withing The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton is pretty much as wonderful as they come.
Now... who should I tag? I'm kind of crunched for time today, so I'm just going to tag Flowers of Quiet Happiness, Meanwhile in Rivendell, Movies Meet Their Match, Any Merry Little Thought, and Lavender Spring even though I haven't had time to look back through their posts and see if they've seen this movie or not. But I know they all enjoy both books and movies :-) If YOU loved this movie and want to do this tag, then you're hereby tagged too!
