TOP TEN Books for Disney Fans

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

1. Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
For Fans Of: Aladdin
Royalty sneaks out to meet with an attractive thief? Check. (Admittedly, there's a LOT more to the book that just that, but it's still reminiscent in this aspect.)
Bitterblue (Graceling Realm, #3)
2. Piratica by Tanith Lee
For Fans Of: Pirates of the Caribbean
Pretty self-explanatory.
Piratica: Being a Daring Tale of a Singular Girl's Adventure Upon the High Seas (Piratica, #1)
3. Splintered by A.G. Howard
For Fans Of: Alice in Wonderland
It's the darker sequel.
Splintered (Splintered, #1)
4. Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
For Fans Of: Hercules
Finding out at least one of your parent is a Greek god, general mayhem, and a healthy does of humor.
The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)
5. Poison by Bridget Zinn
For Fans Of: Mulan
Girl who doesn't necessarily fit society's norms sets off on a quest that her friends and family don't understand.
Poison
6. I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have To Kill You by Ally Carter

Both set in schools for extraordinary kids destined to save the day.
I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You (Gallagher Girls, #1)

For Fans Of: The Incredibles
A family who saves the day together, stays together.

9. Of Beast and Beauty by Stacey Jay
For Fans Of: Tangled 
Wait, what?! Not Beauty and the Beast, you ask? No that would be way too obvious.
So, why Tangled? Well, manipulative parental figures keep a girl locked away in a tower until a ruffian enters the scene and changes everything.

Snow White in the modern day with zumba. 'nuff said.

    2. Yea I loved it! But not as much as I liked Fire or Graceling. The heroine was so different compared to Katsa and Fire. Still I really loved Kristin Cashore's writing.

    3. I love that all of her protagonists are so different. :) Bitterblue isn't my favorite of the trilogy either, but the writing is still phenomenal.
