I saw this tag on YouTube and I thought it was fun, so I’m gonna do it. I will link to the creator’s video.
This tag has 20 questions about what books I own. I feel it works better in video format. But Whatever, I still want to do it.
1. A book with deckled edges
YES. I may have more than one, but the one that comes to mind at the moment is Jesus Freaks by DC Talk.
Couldn’t find a picture where you can see the deckled pages, but it’s got them. I promise.
2. A book with 3 or more people on the cover
YES! A Wrinkle In Time by Madeline L’Engle. Has 3 people on it.
3. A book based on another fictional story
Do I? Do I really? How about The Wrath and the Dawn? Arabian nights retelling. Percy Jackson? Magnus Chase? ACOTAR? Cruel Beauty? Could go on, but you guys get the point. I have A LOT of retellings.
4. A book with a title 10 letters long
I’m gonna say it has to be 1 word, just to make it more difficult. And I’m gonna go with Nevernight by Jay Kristoff.
5. A book with a title that starts and ends with the same letter
The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick. Starts and ends with a T. And just because I know some people are going to be picky about me including the article, here’s another: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo.
6. A mass market paperback
Yes. All of my Lord of the Rings and one of my copies of The Hobbit.
7. A book by an author using a pen name
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll. His real name was Charles Dodgson.
8. A book with a character’s name in the title
Looking for Alaska by John Green. Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. State of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury. The main character is named Sorrow. Weird, I know. Marissa Meyer’s books also. Could probably go on, but we’ll stoop here.
9. A book with two maps in it
Probably have loads of these as well, but I’m too lazy to check so we’ll go with Elantris by Brandon Sanderson because I’m currently reading it. And it has not two, but three maps in it. Wait… does that mean it doesn’t fulfill the challenge? Like does it have to be 2, no more no less? If that’s the case, I will go with A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas.
10. A book that was turned into a TV show
A Game of Thrones by G. R. R. Martin.
11. A book written by someone who was originally famous for something else?
Relativity by Albert Einstein. Cause he was famous for science. So, I’m counting it.
12. A book with a clock on the cover
This is going to take some thinking. Just One damned Thing After Another by Jodi Taylor. That’s kind of a clock. If you don’t like that, I got Clockwork Angel that’s got Big Ben in the background. No one can argue with Big Ben.
13. A poetry book
I have several, but I’ll go with Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur because I’ve read and loved it.
14. A book with an award stamp on it
Ok, I’m bitter about this question because I have loads of books that have won prizes. But the stickers/stamps annoy me, so I tend to buy editions that don’t have them. I’m going to have to delve deep for this one.
I have The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin. It’s not actually a sticker, nor is it a stamp. It’s just printed on the cover. But I’m going with it.
15. A book written by an author with the same initials as you?
I actually don’t. 😥 My initials are RP and I have no books written by an author with the same initials. I do have books written by a PR. But no RP. So I’m gonna give myself half a point for this, cause the right letters, just wrong order and go with The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.
16. A book of short stories
The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo.
17. A book between 500 and 510 pages.
Pfft, easy. Skyward by Brandon Sanderson. Exactly 510 pages (just got it in a subscription box yesterday and I SQUEALED!).
18. A book that was turned into a movie
I have like 20. But I’ll go with The Lord of the Rings because that’s my favourite adaptation.
19. A graphic novel
Indeed I do. Artemis Fowl: The Graphic Novel.
20. A book written by two or more authors
This was a long tag. I do indeed have several books that are co-authored. Including Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman
This was fun. I got 19.5 out of 20 points. So… not bad. Let me know what you guys got!
