Hey everyone! How are you? I hope you’re good. I’m doing a challenge: Do I have that book? I saw it floating around some time ago and today I felt like doing it. The challenge was originally created by Keeping Tabs on YouTube. I have about 80 books in my collection to choose from. Let’s get started!
1. Do you have a book with deckled edges?
I actually don’t. I don’t mind as they seem to make reading the book more difficult.
2. Do you have a book with 3 or more people on the cover?
I do! Kids of Appetite by David Arnold has 5 people on the cover.
3. Do you have a book based on another fictional story?
I have several. For example, Geekerella by Ashley Poston is a retelling of Cinderella.
4. Do you have a book with a title 10 letters long?
Dear Martin by Nic Stone has exactly ten!
5. Do you have a book with a title that starts and ends with the same letter?
I do! Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff starts and ends with an O.
6. Do you have a Mass Market Paperback book?
I don’t. It’s not a snobbish thing. They don’t usually sell them here in Belgium and I don’t see why I should go out of my way to buy one.
7. Do you have a book written by an author using a pen name?
Yes, I do in fact. Autoboyography by Christina Lauren is written by a duo of authors whose first names are respectively Christina and Lauren.
8. Do you have a book with a character’s name in the title?
I’ll go for an easy one: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
9. Do you have a book with 2 maps in it?
This was quite hard and I had to look through all my books, but I found one! I actually have only one book with a map in the front: the edition of Harry Potter pictured above. There’s only one map, though. However, Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff has several maps of the ships throughout.
10. Do you have a book that was turned into a TV show?
I don’t think so.
11. Do you have a book written by someone who is originally famous for something else? (celebrity/athlete/politician/tv personality…)
I have How to be a BAWSE by Lilly Singh, a famous Youtuber. I loved it when I read it, even gave it 5 stars. Since then, my views on it have changed a bit. Lilly promotes working a lot in this book. And all though I think having a work ethic is good thing, I believe taking breaks is good as well, something I missed in this particular book.
12. Do you have a book with a clock on the cover?
I thought I did, but turns out I don’t anymore since I donated the Precious Gemstone trilogy by Kerstin Gier.
13. Do you have a poetry book?
I do, if you count The Illiad and The Odyssey by Homer. They’re lyrical works.
14. Do you have a book with an award stamp on it?
My copy of Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli has a printed sticker of the William C. Morris Debut Award.
15. Do you have a book written by an author with the same initials as you?
I don’t. My initials are E. D. Can you think of a book?
16. Do you have a book of short stories?
Yes, I do! Stars Above by Marrisa Meyer counts for this question.
17. Do you have a book that is between 500-510 pages long?
The Dutch edition of The House of Hades by Rick Riordan has exactly 509 pages! I’m really happy I found one for this!
18. Do you have a book that was turned into a movie?
Multiple! In order to be a bit original, I will say The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
19. Do you have a graphic novel?
I own 2 exactly. Most of my graphic novels I get electronically or from my library. The two I own are Wires and Nerve and its sequel by Marissa Meyer.
20. Do you have a book written by 2 or more authors?
I have multiple. For this question I’ll go with Here We Are, an anthology by a multitude of authors and edited by Kelly Jensen.
In conclusion, I have a book for 15 of the 20 questions. Not bad, right?
- Ali from Tea and Turned Pages
- Sofii from A Book. A Thought.
- Angelica from The Book Cover Girl
- Beth from Reading Every Night
- Kat from Rustic Pages
