I wrote a list of my favorite musical theatre characters before, but decided to create a new list. Some of these musical theatre characters are also book characters.
- Jean Valjean
- The Students of the ABC
- Jack Kelly
- Rest of the Newsies
- Katherine Plumber
- Anna (Frozen)
- Mrs. Potts
- Don Quixote
- Sancho Panza
- Maria (Sound of Music)
- The Von Trapp Children
- Sandy- as in the dog
- The other orphans
It is true that you can be a bookworm, but dislike some. The vast majority of books I disliked were required high school books- a lot of them were tragedies. As a high schooler, I didn’t want tragedies in my life. So what were some of the books I disliked?
- Anna Karenina
- Queen of the Tearling
- Of Mice and Men
- The Giver
- Lord of the Flies
- The Great Gatsby
- Romeo and Juliet
- Julius Caesar
- Death of a Salesman
- Uncle Tom’s Cabin
Only two of those were ones I choose to read- Anna Karenina and Queen of the Tearling.
What about you, what were some books you disliked?
I have written this post before- about musicals I love. This time, I decided to include musical movies. Like all the lists, there will be a chance some will be left off. Of those who know me, some of these musicals will come of no surprise.
- Les Mis
- Sound of Music
- Phantom of the Opera
- Beauty and the Beast
- Lion King
- Music Man
- Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
- High School Musical-1, 2, and 3
- Mamma Mia
- Fiddler on the Roof
- Man of La Mancha
- South Pacific
- Greatest Showman
- Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
Just what I can think for now- here are some that still need to be watched: I already love Oliver, Beauty and the Beast and Frozen, but still haven’t seen the stage show.
- Something Rotten
I noticed on another blog that there was this thing called Classic Remarks. You are basically given a prompt for a specific date and you have to answer. I decided to start doing some of those posts this year
Who are some of your favorite mystery writers
What is hard to say is that I only have one answer. My favorite mystery author is Agatha Christie. I started liking her after reading “And Then There Was None” for 12th grade literature. We were studying British literature that year, and it ended on Agatha Christie. In my opinion, her best works are “And Then There Was None” and “Murder on the Orient Express”.
While I haven’t read any Sherlock Holmes books, I hope to someday. For Christmas, I got a collection of Sherlock Homes stories. That will be an exciting adventure for me. I have a feeling I will love them.
A couple days ago, I finished The Silver Chair- the 4th book in the Narnia series. It felt like a new book to me. After all, I remember nothing about the book except for the fact that Eustace is in it.
Jill and Eustace must rescue the Prince from the evil Witch.
NARNIA…where owls are wise, where some of the giants like to snack on humans, where a prince is put under an evil spell…and where the adventure begins
Eustace and Jill escape from the bullies at school through a strange door in the wall, which, for once, is unlocked. It leads to the open moor…or does it? Once again Aslan has a task for the children, and Narnia needs them. Through dangers untold and caverns deep and dark, they pursue the quest that brings them face to face with the evil Witch. She must be defeated if Prince Rillian is to be savedGoodreads
I loved hearing more about Eustace in this book. He actually develops even further- at the end of Dawn Treader, he does become a better person, and in this book you see more developed then the book you meet him in. There were some new characters that I loved meeting- Puddleglum and Jill Pole. You see a new creature I never met in Narnia- a Marsh Wiggle. Jill Pole is a friend of Eustace and together with Puddleglum, they go on an incredible journey.
I saw even more areas of Narnia I never knew existed. The series continues to be amazing- reading this book was fun. Due to not really knowing the book, I was able in some ways read a new book.
