The Extraordinary Means Tag

Book Tag


The Extraordinary Means Book Tag was created by Robin Schneider for the release of her new book Extraordinary Means. I learned about this book tag from Katie over at Spiral Bound.


I am really excited about today’s post. The last time I attempted a tag was back in January when I posted the Taylor Swift Book Tag [See it here] I thoroughly enjoy tags so I don’t know why I don’t publish them more often. A quick disclaimer: I have yet to read this book. I don’t know why I felt I needed to tell you that but honesty is the best policy right? *Shoves broken coffee cup under the couch* Anyway, lets get started with the tag!

Okay, I lied. I want to give another “quick” disclaimer as I enjoy talking about myself: I tried not to litter this post with complaints about the questions but some slipped in anyway.

Now let’s get started.

Okay?

Okay.

1. I would give up the internet for a month for a signed first edition of this book.

The internet for a month? That would have to be a special book! I guess it would have to be Gone with the Wind by Margret Mitchell. My great-grandfather had a first edition copy that I hope to one day hold as my Nana has it put away for safe keeping. But I don’t think it is signed!

2. I would give up pizza for a year if it meant I could sit next to this author on a long plane ride.

Jen Calonita! Although, I should probably stop eating pizza before then so I look awesome.

3. I would sit through a thousand hours of commercials if it would ensure Hollywood made this book into a movie.

Rachel Hawkins’s Rebel Belles Trilogy! I think it would be neat to see that on the big screen! But they better not change a thing!

4. I would never read a new book again if it meant I could live inside this book.

Uh… Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins’ world is fabulous…. OK. France… France is fabulous… well, as long as they have French people who speak English… or an American boy with an English accent specifically named Étienne St. Clair.

5. I would let my Google search history be made public if it meant I could be best friends with this author.

Sarah Mlynowski (since I’ve already sat by Jen Calonita on a plane and we no doubt have plans to discuss her newest book deal over lunch next week.) Can you imagine being friends with TWO of your favorite authors?

6. I would donate everything I own to Goodwill if it meant I could date this book character in real life.

Dexter from Sarah Dessen’s This Lullaby because he would always make me laugh!

WAIT. Does that include my books?

Please say no. Please say no. PLEASE SAY NO.

Time to tag people!

If you have already been tagged I am not sorry because I thought about you and I deserve free shoes for being an awesome friend. 😉

If, like me, you haven’t been tagged you can still do this tag. It was really fun hunting down gifs for each question and, if you enjoy pulling your nails out with pliers, the questions were fun too.

Thanks for sticking around to the end of this post. Happy reading and, for those whom I have tagged, my shoe size is a ten.

  1. Oh neat Jordan! Thank you so much for tagging me- it’s so interesting to see tags for actual books appearing. There’s this and the Morehappythannot one. Interesting. I wonder if this will become a theme?
    Nice answers, though! I really rather like these questions and I actually have this book to be read on my shelf (it has such a neat cover) so yay! I’m making sure I know nothing about it before starting, so I am glad this didn’t have la spoilers. I’ll definitely have fun with this tag when I do it! xx

    1. Romi, I always try to avoid spoilers with books I haven’t read. 😉 I haven’t seen the More Happy Than Not tag. I’ll have to check that out. It would be neat if it became a theme! Especially if the authors of said books create them! 😀

      Happy reading,
      Jordan

    1. Hey Sofia,
      I loved your video. I agree with your screenwriting comment. It seems like a daunting task to write screenplays! I would be a nervous wreck trying to tie in Gilmore Girl references and make a pun about Casablanca at the same time! Thanks for commenting and leaving a link to your video. I subscribed to your channel so keep on posting! 😉

      P.s. I googled “bookish gifs.” For the Charlie’s Angels gif I had a specific image in mind so, don’t laugh, I searched “Cameron Diaz’s Charlie Angels underwear scene” and it pulled right up! Tumblr is also a great place to find Gifs for bookish related quotes. I hope this helps!

  2. I still need to read This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen! This post reminded me and it’s been so long since I bought my copy that I have to go search for it. D: Anyway, this was a fun post to read! I’m not a huge fan of doing tags though, so I think I’ll sit out! Thanks sooo much for tagging me anyway!
