Today, as you can tell, I'm going to do the Opposite Book Tag. Thanks Lauren @ Always Me for tagging me!
First Book In Your Collection / Last Book You Bought
I have had books throughout my entire life and I really couldn't tell you which is the first book that I ended up owning. However, the book I Saw It In the Sea is a book my parents say that I used to love as a child. Apparently, I went around asking family members to read it for me so often that they still remember all the words (I still remember all the words) and my Nana got sick of it. The last book purchase I made was the Hush, Hush box set. I've already read these books, and I own another copy of Finale. When I saw the box set on sale, I couldn't not get it.
A Cheap Book / An Expensive Book
The cheapest book I have bought is a tie between Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo and Angelfall by Susan Ee, because I can't remember their exact prices, but they were both under $10. The most expensive book I've bought is Infinite by Jodi Meadows which was $18 or $19, being a hardcover - still pretty cheap considering!
A Book With a Male Protagonist / A Book With a Female Protagonist
For this, I'm going with my last two reads: Messenger by Lois Lowry and Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas. Both of which I loved, by the way.
A Book You Read Fast / A Book That Took You Long To Read
I read Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas in a day, which is the fastest I've read a book of that kind of length (almost 400 pages). For a book that took a long time for me to read, I'm going to pick Cloudstreet by Tim Winton. I had to read this book for school this year and I found it really boring. But, I never have to think about it again after today - because I had my final english exam! Yay!
A Pretty Cover / An Ugly Cover
Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor is a really beautiful book inside and out in my opinion. And if you have never seen this version in person, you won't understand completely, because it is shiny in all the right places to match the design and it's just gorgeous, I promise. For my ugly cover, I have picked Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I have a passionate hate for all the Lux covers, but there's just something about Onyx that makes it the worst. How anyone could read this in public is beyond me.
A National Book / An International Book
I haven't yet read Every Breath by Ellie Marney, but it's set in Melbourne, which is in Australia, which is where I live. As for an international book, I could pick almost any... I'm going to go with We Were Liars by E. Lockhart. Because reasons.
A Thin Book / A Thick Book
For a thin book, I've picked Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley, because it is relatively short and I liked it too. For a thick book, I picked The Diviners by Libba Bray because I loved it.
A Fiction Book / A Non-Fiction Book
I picked Seraphina by Rachel Hartman, because it's a favourite and fantasy is as fiction-y as it gets. I chose The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, The Official Illustrated Movie Companion as non-fiction, because I don't really read non-fiction, but I read and own this!
A (Way Too) Romantic Book / An Action Book
Another shout out to the Lux series. I picked Opposition because though it wasn't extremely romantic overall, there were so many moments where I just wanted the alien plot to move on, rather than the relationship plot [(which was well into the honeymoon stage in more ways than one)]. I picked Prodigy by Marie Lu for an action book because there is stuff going on all the time in this book.
A Book That Made You Happy / A Book That Made You Sad
Fang Girl by Helen Keeble had me laughing throughout and A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness made me incredibly sad throughout, so they get these spots.
That's the post! Thanks again to Lauren for tagging me!
This tag has definitely been around for a while so, I'm going to tag anyone who hasn't done this and has "book" in their url :)
