Opposites Book Tag

I found this tag over at Dreamland Book Blog you can see the their post here: https://dreamlandbookblog.wordpress.com/2013/12/08/tag-opposite-books-tag/

The original post was a video but the link unfortunately no longer works so I can’t link it!

The idea of the tag is that you answer a number of questions concerning opposites in the world of books.

1. First book in your collection vs last book you bought.

The oldest book in my collection is my copy of Harry Potter and the Philospher’s Stone by JK Rowling. It’s a bit tatty now!

The last book I bought was No Middle Name by Lee Child which I got for half price yesterday from Waterstones.

2. A cheap book vs an expensive book

I’ll be honest most of my books are fairly cheap as I either buy in the kindle daily deals or second hand. I don’t splash out often! The cheapest book I own is probably the last book I bought for 99p on Kindle Daily Deal. It was The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks.

The most expensive book I own I have two actually they were £20 each and they are leather bound, gilt edged copies of Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre.

3. A book with a male protagonist Vs a book with a female protagonist

The easiest one from my collection with a male protagonist is definitely Harry Potter but I’m going to choose instead, Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief my female protagonist choice would be Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C Dao plus the cover of this one is stunning.

4. A book you read fast vs one that you took a long time to read.

I always find that the Lee Child, Jack Reacher books are always super quick reads, longer reads for me are the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon purely because they’re such a huge size!

5. Pretty Cover vs Ugly Cover

I absolutely love the cover of Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody I really can’t think of an ugly cover! So I went for the plainest Cover instead which is my copy of The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

6. A National Book vs An International Book

All my Katie Fforde books are based in the UK so they’re my choice for a national Book, I have loads of international books but the first ones that jump into my head are the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.

7. A thin Book vs a thick book

Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard is pretty thin, and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is pretty thick.

8. Fiction book vs Non Fiction Book

Wuthering Heights (my other copy) is my choice for fiction and The Brontes an appropriate choice for non fiction.

9. Very (way too) romantic Book vs an Action Book

Lyrebird by Cecelia Ahern was a bit too sickly sweet for me, it felt like the characters really got forced together and it was too ‘innocent’.

For action, I’m going to With Lee Child again, Jack Reacher is one of the best action series’ of our time.

10. A book that made you happy vs one that made you sad.

This is a toughie! Most books make me happy! I’m going to say that the one that made me sad was City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare because it was the last one in the series and I really didn’t want it to be over!

A book that makes me happy is anything by Katie Fforde because she writes such beautiful stories which always have happy endings!
