The Opposites Book Tag

Mary and the Words is where I found this tag. There is a chance I may not have found the cover in. There really wasn’t really rules in this tag. It was pretty much just answering the questions. Let’s see what I can come up with. I will add one rules: tag 5+ people.

first book in your collection | last book you bought

Of the books on my shelf, most likely belonging to the Percy Jackson: The Olympians. I had those books since middle school.

Last book I bought: what I can think of belongs to the first two Nevermoor books.

a book with a male protagonist | a book with a female protagonist

I automatically thought of the Shades of Magic series- Kell is our male main character.

With Female main character- I thought of the Spinning Silver character. The main character is Miryem- I loved her a lot.

cheap book | an expensive book—–this is tough.

Cheap book- going with Nicholas Nickleby. I bought it at at an used bookstore. Expensive book- while I didn’t buy it, I believe A Christmas Treasury was expensive.

book you read fast | a book that took you a long time to read– this is quickly.

Tom Sawyer is a book I read quickly. It took me about four months to read Nicholas Nickleby

pretty cover | ugly cover—–well I have read of books with a pretty cover, but barely with with an ugly cover. Turns out my Nicholas Nickleby cover is an ugly cover

a national book | an international book——-well mostly read books outside of the US.

At least I found something.

a thin book | a thick book—–

Well, one of the thinnest book I own is “The Day World Came to Town”. Those who know the Come From Away story would know that book. This is the book that musical is based off. A thick book would be Les Misérables.The only way to include this belongs to the musical.

romantic book | action book—this is a struggle

Romantic book- this is a struggle. Barley read romantic books and struggle with noticing romance in books. Actually, I can think of one that I love, which is The Princess Bride

It is a book you will always love. Romance, Miracles, Action, Memorable Lines, etc…..Believe it or not, the movie is very faithful to the book. T

Action book- what came to mind first was the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.That is especially true in the last two films.

a fiction book | a nonfiction book———-I read a lot of fiction.

a book that made you happy | a book that made you sad——-lots of books made me happy. Yes, I had to use a picture from of the musical of Les Mis to explain this.

  1. This does look like a fun tag! My answers:
    1) The first novel I remember reading was Michael Ende’s The Neverending Story, and I read it with some help from my father when I was young. I’m trying to remember the first book I have a memory of buying, but it’s kind of escaping me at the moment. I can’t really remember for certain what book I bought last (that wasn’t a textbook). It might’ve been The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova.
    2) The ones that came to mind for me were Harry Potter for male protagonist and Momo by Michael Ende for female protagonist.
    3) Most of my books, I get pretty cheap since I buy almost all of them used. As such, it’s kind of hard to think of one that was particularly cheap. One that was fairly expensive, though, is an Edgar Allen Poe collection I have. Like your Christmas Treasury, I didn’t buy that one for myself but I received it as a gift and I imagine it probably was a good deal more expensive than a majority of my books.
    4) I read Friday’s Child by Georgette Heyer fairly quickly–I think it took me about a day. A book that took me a long time to read was J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion. I enjoyed it, but I had to take my time with it.
    5) Personally, I really love the cover of my edition of Oscar Wilde’s The Canterbury Ghost. It’s nothing over the top, but I just really like it. My Edgar Allen Poe collection’s also got a really beautiful cover. As for a not-so-nice cover, I guess I probably would think of an edition of The Odyssey that I used to have. I don’t have it anymore since I bought a copy that had both The Iliad and The Odyssey in one volume. The cover of the edition I got rid of wasn’t awful, but I didn’t like it much either.
    6) Hmm… for a book written by an American author, I’ll go with The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. For international books, ones that come to mind the most for me are Japanese children’s books I read when I was small. My favorite of those was probably 「ぴーちゃん くもに とぶ」.
    7) I’m not entirely sure what the thinnest book I own is, but I’d say that Oscar Wilde’s The Canterville Ghost is one of them. Like you, I’ll use Les Misérables as my thickest book!
    8) For romance, I guess I’ll go with The Convenient Marriage by Georgette Heyer. An action book… maybe The Odyssey.
    9) For fiction, I’ll just go with The Neverending Story by Michael Ende. As for nonfiction, I’ll go with The History of the French Revolution by Jules Michelet.
    10) A book that made me happy would be pretty much anything by Georgette Heyer. A book that made me sad would be Burial Rites by Hannah Kent.
