Dearest Olivia, do forgive me for just now getting around to doing this tag. February was months ago, and I meant to do this before now, but I just have not gotten around to it until now. Thank you for the tag and thinking of me. 😃
- Link back to Jenelle’s blog. (http://jenelleschmidt.com/)
- Use the February Is Fantasy Month banner (above)
- Compose a list of five to ten lessons you’ve learned from reading a fantasy book or watching a fantasy movie
- Tag two to four other bloggers to do the same
Life Lessons Learned from Fantasy (In no particular order):
- Heartless by Anne Elisabeth Stengl— taught me that even the most ruined souls can be redeemed by Jesus Christ.
- The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Adieh—taught me that revenge is not the answer to the pain others cause you.
- The Blood of Kings Trilogy by Jill Williamson — taught me that trials can lead to better things.
- Storm Siren series by Mary Weber—taught me to love even the most flawed of individuals.
- The 2014 Maleficent movie — taught me there are stories behind antagonists’ decisions, and that they, too, can be redeemed.
- Fairest by Gail Carson Levine— taught me what is inside is worth more than what is outside of a person.
- Gu Family Book (2013 K-Drama) — taught me that Koreans are better at making shows than any other country these days. (I know that is not a story lesson, but I just had to throw this in here.)
- The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Anderson— taught me that not all happy endings are what we initially imagined them to be. (The original Little Mermaid story is so much more emotionally wrenching than the Disney version.)
- The Ordinary Princess by M.M. Kaye– taught me that the ordinary can be extraordinary by being themselves.
- Beauty and the Beast (1991)-—taught me that giving the one you want to love you a library is a sure way to add bonus favor points. #iwouldnotgivethatlibraryawaythough
I won’t be tagging anyone, but I’m sure you can do it if you want. Happy Memorial Day!
