Here’s yet another tag that no one has officially tagged me in, but I am doing it anyway because I’m an independent book blogger and I don’t need to be tagged.
First book in your collection/Last book you bought.
First Book: The Lost Boy by Dave Pelzer, I saw my sister reading it and I just got it and read it. And it’s been in my collection ever since.
Last Book: To All the Boys I’ve Loved by Jenny Han.
A cheap book/An expensive book.
Cheapest Book: The short answer would be that I don’t know which is the cheapest book in my collection. Throughout the years I’ve learned little tricks to save money when buying books. Some of the cheaper books in my collection are Confessions of a Shopaholic, The Scarlet Letter, some of Jane Austen novels, The Outsiders, and To Kill a Mockingbird.
Most Expensive Book: the Avatar comics Library Edition they’re all over 20 bucks, some even go as high as $30.
A book with a male protagonist/One with a female protagonist.
Male Protagonist: Losing Hope by Colleen Hoover is the retelling of Hopeless but from Holder’s point of view.
Female Protagonist: Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
A book you read fast/One that took you long to read.
Fast Read: All the Ugly and Wonderful Things by Bryn Greenwood is among one of my fastest reads, but not the fastest one. My fastest read is Ugly Love but (spoiler alert) it will be mentioned in another category, and I did not want to repeat books. Plus, this gives me a chance to mention this book again.
Slow Read: Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella took me a whole month to read.
Pretty cover/Ugly cover.
Pretty Cover: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Ugly Cover: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins original cover. They were horrendous and misled me to believe it was just as bad when in reality it’s such a good book.
A national book/An international book.
National Book: Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston (Florida, United States / my home)
International Book: Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (Nigeria/ not my home)
A thin book/A thick book.
Thin Book: A Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Gabriel Garcia Marquez (122 pgs)
Thick Book: One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez (457 pgs)
Fiction book/Non-fiction book.
Fiction: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Non-Fiction: Hamilton The Revolution by Lin-Manuel Mrianda & Jeremy McCarter
Very (way too) romantic book/Action book.
Romance: Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover
Action: Divergent by Veronica Roth
*There’s a lot of action in Ugly Love but it’s the Rated R kind of action… I had to make that joke.
A book that made you happy/One that made you sad.
Happy Book: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
Sad Book: Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
