Top 10 Favourite Disney animated films

I’ve been a bit obsessed with everything Disney lately so here is something I though I would do considering I haven’t been reading very much lately and therefore have been posting regularly. Not in any kind of order, other than for the top 3.

10. The Princess and The Frog

I’m actually not a big fan of the Disney Princess films. I don’t know whether this is because I never watched them when I was little, but I’ve only watched most of them in the past few years and I honestly don’t care much for them. However, I do have a soft spot for those that have come out in recent years. I remember reading the fairy tale of the princess and the frog when I was little it was one of my favourites, so when this film came out I was super excited. It didn’t disappoint.

9. Hercules

Honestly? I’m only really including this because of the character of Hades. Who cannot love him?! Such a great character! So so funny. This film makes me laugh every time I watch it.

8. The Rescuers

I owned this on VHS when I was a child and its a film that used to scare the crap out of me… but I loved it. I honestly think this is one of Disney’s most underrated movies. It really is fantastic. Its such a horrible and yet lovely story.

7. The Aristocats

Who doesn’t love this  one? I’m pretty sure this film started my love for cats. There isn’t anything in this film I hate. The scenes with the geese were my favourite and still are!

6. Pocahontas

1002004000054999

A film I watched for the first time about 2 months ago, and I curse myself that I didn’t watch it sooner. My favourite part of this film is the song Colours of The Wind, which I have to say is probably the best Disney song ever. I’ve played it over 150 times already on my itunes. I also like seeing stuff about Native Americans.

5. Lilo and Stitch

Aliens, Hawaii, Elvis, Bubbles, and more aliens… There isn’t really much else to say. Such a great concept, and another film that I’ve watched over and over again, probably to the point where I can recite it.

4. Bambi

I was probably the most innocent child ever over this film. I didn’t realise Bambi’s mother died until I was around 15. Just a little ashamed that I was so oblivious… This film is obviously a Disney classic and I don’t really need to go into any detail over why its one of my favourites do I?!

3. Tangled

Rapunzel is my favourite princess hands down. Maximus us probably the greated animated animal every created. Eugene… well… 😉
Such a brilliantly funny film, with an incredible soundtrack!

2. Mulan

Mulan

Shang is probably my favourite male Disney character. *drools* (is it weird to fancy an animated character?!)
Anyway, love Mulan, even without Shang in the film it would be one of my all time favourites. I always love stories where women have to disguise themselves to get what they want, and this is a classic.

1. The Sword in the Stone

51VXTYRSE2L

Hmmm, where to start…
This film has so many memories for me. I remember crying with laughter with my friends in the scenes where they turn into squirrels. I also remember I used to watched it nearly everyday, I’m pretty sure it drove my mum crazy. I believe this film is also my brother’s favourite Disney film, so its something we have in common. And on top of that, I LOVE Arthurian legends! If I had to pin point the time when I became interested in everything historical, watching this film nearly everyday would be it. This film is so so so underrated, I barely ever hear people talk about it which is a shame, as it is ridiculously good.

Hope you enjoyed my list, and don’t forget to comment with your favourite Disney films!

Favourite books of 2013

Image

Just a list of all my favourite book/series that I have read this year. I’ve read a lot of books this year and it was so hard to put them in order.

1) Penryn and End of Days series by Susan Ee (Angelfall and World After)

Angelfall + World After
Amazing start to a series which I believe will be five books. I honestly can’t wait for the next book.
Angelfall: review
World After: review

2) Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead (Vampire Academy, Frostbite, Shadow Kiss, Blood Promise, Spirit Bound and Last Sacrifice)

All_the_VA_books
A series that I should think everyone is familiar with. Entertaining, funny, heartbreaking and ultimately fantastic. I read this series in one swoop in August and still find myself revisiting it to reread snippets.

Series review.

3) Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

CrownOfMidnight
The second instalment of the Throne of Glass series. This is how sequals should be done. Better than the first book and the first book was pretty great. A series everyone should give a go, because there really is something for everyone.

Review

4) His Fair Assassin series by Robin LaFevers (Grave Mercy and Dark Triumph)

His Fair Assassin
The first two books in a trilogy. Brilliant books about assassin nuns. What more can make you want to read this book?! Love love loved it.

Grave Mercy: Review
Dark Triumph: No review available.

5) The Duff by Kody Keplinger

August262010436pmTheDUFF
Love this one a lot. Perfect for a quick read. Great characters even if the storyline is a little predictable.
Review.

6) Maus by Art Spiegelman.

Just… wow. All I can say really. Pick this up, you won’t regret it. If you do… there’s something wrong with you.
No review available.

7) The Monk by Matthew Lewis

6932779
One of the few classics I read this year. It’s insane. If you looking for something shocking this is what you need.
Review.

8) Study Series by Maria V. Snyder (Poison Study, Magic Study and Fire Study)

studycovers
The male hero in this is to die for. I love him. Haha… But there is so much more to these books than the romance. Wonderful fantasy trilogy, with a strong heroine.
No reviews available.

9) Starcrossed Trilogy by Josephine Angelini (Starcrossed, Dreamless and Goddess)

starcrossedukseries
All about Greek mythology. I know a lot of people stay away from this when reading Young Adult but I would definitely recommend giving this series a change. It is so action packed and fast paced its great. I’m not overly fussy when it comes to mythology so it would suit someone of the same opinion.
No reviews available.

10) Blood of Eden series by Julie Kagawa (The Immortal Rules and The Eternity Cure)

julie-kagawa-immortal-rules-eternity-cure-book-covers-2
Yeah, another vampire series. But WAIT! with a twist: It’s set in a dystopian world. This series has so much potential to be one of the best Vampire series out there. Its not soppy, and these vampires are no push overs. People who have read Kagawa’s Fey series and disliked it may be put off by any of her other books. BUT PLEASE give this series a go. The writing, the world building, the characters AND the plot is utterly mind-blowing.
Short reviews but its something…
