Week 7 is going to be the Opposites Book Tag. This tag was created by minhaestante. You can view the original video here. As always, I did not create this tag, minhaestante did. If any bloggers out there want to join me, feel free to leave a link to you’re post in the comments, I’d love to see them. Or for anyone else out there who doesn’t have a blog, feel free to leave some of you’re answers in the comments so I’ll feel a little less alone.
1. The first book in your collection and the last book you bought
I honestly have no clue what the first book in my collection is. I can say that the one the first books I bought with my own money was Romancing Mister Bridgerton by Julia Quinn. I wanted to read a love story and if “Romancing” is in the title, it has to be a love story, right? Technically the last book I brought home was Winter, but I pre-ordered that ages ago and paid for it when I pre-ordered. Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge was the last book I picked to buy on my last book purchase, so I’m going to go with that.
2. A cheap book and an expensive book
Really, any mass market paperback is typically pretty cheap, but specifically Wedding Of The Season by Laura Lee Guhrke is only $8, which is a bargain considering hardbacks are $20+. Harry Potter & The Order Of The Phoenix by J K Rowling is retailed at $29.99! That’s $30! For one book! The illustrated edition is even higher….but I still want it!
3. A book with a male protagonist and one with a female protagonist
Max Cantrell is the protagonist of Liars Inc by Paula Stokes and Chloe is the protagonist of Top Ten Clues You’re Clueless by Liz Czukas.
4. A book you read fast and one that took you long to read
I read This Book Will Change Your Life by Amanda Weaver in a day, which is not something that occurs often for me. It took my husband and I three months to finish Talon by Julie Kagawa.
5. A book with a pretty cover and one with an ugly one
I love the simplicity and the bright color of Exile by Kevin Emerson. The Weepers: The Other Life by Susanne Winnacker has one of the crappiest covers I’ve ever seen. This is worsen by the fact that it has an alternate cover that is gorgeous!
6. A national book and an international one
Confession? I’m not positive that Made You Up by Francesca Zappia is just a US release, but it’s my answer nonetheless. Picture Perfect by Holly Smale isn’t even out in the US yet, though thanks to Book Outlet I have a UK copy anyway.
7. A thin book and a thick book
Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist by David Levithan & Rachel Cohn is magical and doesn’t even hit the 200 page mark. Winter by Marissa Meyer is an 800+ page monstrosity (and worth every page).
8. A fiction book and a non-fiction book
Hellhole by Gina Damico is definitely fictional…unless Berg is really running around in the world causes mayhem. I don’t actually read much nonfiction, but I love Nothing’s Sacred by Lewis Black. I just love Lewis Black in general.
9. A way too romantic book and an action book
Is there really such a thing as too romantic? I don’t think so, but Forever Your Earl by Eva Leigh definitely a lot of romance. Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins is an action packed adventure with just a dash of romance.
10. A book that made you happy and one that made you sad
Hello, I Love You by Katie M Stout is a fluffy YA romance that I devoured and highly enjoyed. I might have mentioned that I don’t like sad books just a few times, but let me reiterate. I don’t like sad books. Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid made me sad not because that was it’s intention but because I was so disappointed in it.
That’s it! What are some of your favorite book covers? Or ones you hate? Or any of the other answers! Let me know in the comments!
