I was tagged by Nick over at The Paper Dragon. Thank you so much for tagging me! Make sure you head over and check out his blog; he’s awesome!
This book tag was inspired by the book, Extraordinary Means, and was originally created by the book’s author, Robyn Schneider. It is all about seeing what extraordinary means we would go to for our books and love of all things literary. If you would like to see the original video of the tag, click here!
- I would give up the Internet for a month for a signed first edition of this book.
I’d actually be reasonably okay with not being able to use the Internet for a month as I do sometimes enjoy getting away from it. On the other hand, I do use it a lot for my writing (and blogging!) so it might be a bit tough to not have it for an extended period of time. Despite that, I would be more than happy to give up my Internet connection for a month or longer if I could own a signed first edition of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.
- I would give up pizza for a year if it meant I could sit next to this author on a long plane ride.
I have a definite pizza addiction, so giving up pizza for a year? Nope! Uh uh! No way! No thank you!
…Okay, so I probably couldn’t give up pizza for a year for anything, but I could probably give it up for a fairly long time if I got the chance to sit next to Gillian Flynn on a long plane ride. She is an absolutely brilliant author, one of my newly discovered favorites, and I would love a chance to get to talk to her about both her work and her writing process. I also wouldn’t mind giving up pizza for a little while to sit next to J.K. Rowling!
- I would sit through a thousand hours of commercials if it would ensure that Hollywood made this book into a movie.
Ugh! Commercials! Okay, so some commercials are pretty good, but I’m not sure I could make it through thousands of hours of them with my sanity intact. Also, book to movie adaptations always make me a bit wary because they tend to be so hit or miss. However, there is one book that I would absolutely adore seeing in movie form: Jackaby by William Ritter. I’d particularly like to see all the various creatures in this novel come to life. It’s such a fun read and I think it would translate brilliantly onto the big screen.
- I would never read a new book again if it meant I could live inside this book.
I have actually already talked about this a number of times here on my blog, but if I could live inside any book, it would be The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. Ever since I was a kid I’ve wished I could wander through a wardrobe and fall into Narnia; how amazing would that be? However, never reading a new book ever again?!
Not sure I could stand that for anything!
- I would let my Google search history be made public if it meant I could be best friends with this author.
To be honest, I think that most people would find my Google search history rather underwhelming. If anything, it would probably just be completely hilarious to see a list of all the strange and random things that pop into my mind throughout the day that I then look up. However, I would let it be made public in a heartbeat if I could be friends with Ransom Riggs. He seems like an absolutely hilarious, kind, and all around awesome guy. He would be so much fun to hang out with. I think our senses of humor would mesh really well, and it would also be very interesting to discuss writing together. I’d definitely love to be best friends with him!
- I would donate everything I own to Goodwill if it meant I could date this book character in real life.
This is a difficult question for me to answer because I don’t get crushes on book characters very often. Maybe Neville Longbottom or Peeta Mellark? They would probably make pretty good boyfriends. I also wouldn’t mind a boyfriend like Atticus Finch (the classic Atticus).
