She’s got a killer ballroom gown and a room full of books that would make anyone swoon. It’s Beauty and the Beast’s Belle who’s up for the Book Nerdspiration feature this week!
Book Nerdspiration: Belle of Beauty and the Beast
Book Nerdspiration is an original Read.Breathe.Relax. feature that honors the biggest book nerds of all time. They may be fictional or famous, but they all must be well-read. These are the people who inspire us to read more, read well, and let out our inner book nerd.
This Week’s Pick: Belle of Beauty and the Beast
Caught Reading: Fairytales. “Far off places, daring swordfights, magic spells, a prince in disguise. It’s my favorite part because you’ll see, Here’s where she meets Prince Charming, But she won’t discover that it’s him ’til chapter three.” Always the romantic, that Belle.
Favorite Genre and/or Book: Some say the book she’s seen reading in the town square is actually the story of Sleeping Beauty.
Most Likely to Talk About: Defending her reading habits to Gaston and apologizing to the Beast about being where she shouldn’t be. Belle’s got it rough.
Her Book Crush : Prince Charming, it seems. Which is just hilarious.
Her Tweets Would Probably Look Like This: Books with words > books with pictures. #AMIRITE? #stupidGaston #bookwormproblems
Why She Inspires Us: Belle is an independent spirit and knows when she doesn’t fit in. She’s ok with being herself AND sticking up for what she believes it (he’s not a beast!!)
Are We Book Soulmates? Absolutely. I love a great fairytale (and fairytale retelling). Belle is whimsical and nerdy and gorgeous. A great role model, even though she’s technically not a Disney princess.
Who do you think should be featured next?
