The Opposites Book Tag

book tag, book questions, book recommendations, books to get, short books, long books, book blog, book blogger,

Today I am going to be doing another book tag! This one is called the opposites book tag:

First Book In Your Collection/ Last Book You Bought

I’m not sure what the first book in my collection is but I know that one of them is the first Harry Potter book.
The last book I bought was The Surface Breaks by Louise O’ Neill which is on my July TBR.

A Cheap Book/ An Expensive Book

One of the cheapest books that I own is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, that I found in a charity shop.
An expensive book that I own is any of the Harry Potter Illustrated Editions.

A Book with a Male Protagonist/ One with a Female Protagonist

Beautiful Creatures follows a male protagonist and at the time, that was something fairly new to me in the YA genre.
Let’s go with one of my recent favourites for a book with a female protagonist: Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder, you can read my reviews of the original trilogy here.

A Book You Read Fast/ One That Took You a Long Time to Read

One book that I read extremely fast was Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson. 
A book that took me a long time to read is difficult because if I am taking a while to read a book I will usually switch to reading something else but I will say Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo because it took me a long time to read from the first time I read the beginning of the book to going back to reading it and finishing it. I actually ended up really enjoying it!

Pretty Cover/ Ugly Cover

I recently bought The Surface Breaks which has a beautiful cover.
I can’t think of any books with covers that I did not like at the moment.

A National Book/ An International Book

I live in England so I’m going to go with one of my favourite books, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
For an international book, I’m going to say The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, who is Australian.

A Thin Book/ A Thick Book

Tell Us Something True by Dana Reinhardt is one of my thinnest books.
I have a couple of thick books but I will say A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin.

Fiction Book/ Non-Fiction Book

A fiction book that I recently received is Dark Matter by Blake Crouch.
A non-fiction book that I own is Fast Fiction by Denise Jaden.

Romantic Book/ Action Book

I have read a few contemporary romance books this year, one of which is The Rules of Rebellion which I reviewed here.
A book with action in (from what I remember) is Stealing Snow by Danielle Paige.

A Book That Made You Happy/ One That Made You Sad

A book that made me happy is Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.
A book that made me sad is Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami. 


I tag anyone who would like to do this and please link me to your answers!

Rapid Fire Book Tag

This is a book tag created by Kate from GirlReading (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-46EzDWdSY). There are a series of book related questions to answer so let’s go:
Q: E-Book or Physical Book?  A: E-book, I know this is a controversial answer but I love my kindle so much! It is light to hold, keeps my page open and tells me an estimate of how much longer I have left in the book which helps motivate me to keep reading.
Q: Paperback or Hardback?  A: I don’t really have a preference!
Q: Online or In-Store Book Shopping?  A: I love shopping in a book store. Being surrounded by books is one of my favourite places. I can look at all of the different books available and choose whichever is available at the time. I often find books that I wasn’t originally planning on buying!
Q: Trilogies or Series? A: I love series because then there are more books to read, as long as the books still continue to be great and there is enough story to last across more books.
Q: Heroes or Villains? A: Heroes but I do l…

Book Buddy Read with Eleanor May

I have wanted to buddy read with someone for a while. Buddy reading is where you and someone else read the same book around the same time and discuss it. However, I didn’t really have anyone who had the same reading tastes as me. I have become good friends with Eleanor from http://www.eleaanormay.com/ and we decided to buddy read!
I am so excited to read a book with her and if any of you want to join in please feel free to. The book we are reading is: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare!
Neither of us have read the Mortal Instruments series before and it is such a popular series. From what I know of this series, it follows teenagers who hunt demons. I was accidentally spoiled with one plot point that occurs later in the story but I am hoping it won’t affect my reading of this book very much. I am really looking forward to discovering this series with a friend.
Have any of you ever done a buddy read?
You can buy City of Bones here: Amazon UK, Audible UK, Amazon US, Audible US, Book Depositor…

Five Things I Learnt From My Internet Detox

I just finished doing 48 hours without internet in aid of Cancer Research UK. Here are the things that I learnt during this time.

1.It is ok to use the internet sometimes 

I often feel bad that I use the internet as much as I do. I think that I should be doing other things instead. However, I have realised that it is ok to use the internet. It is ok to spend time on social media, post things and talk to others, as long as you are not spending too long on there or spending time on social media or accounts that make you feel bad about yourself.

2.Without internet you can relive some good old times
Not having access to internet 24/7 reminded me of when I was younger and we literally did not have access to internet 24/7. We had to spend our time in other ways. The one activity that I spent most of my time doing was playing video games. I used to love spending time playing the same game over and over again and a lot of the games I never even completed because they were too difficult for me bu…
