1. The first book in your collection/The last book you bought.
My first proper novel in my collection that I still own is probably Twilight by Stephanie Meyer. The last book I bought was The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick [I'm currently reading this and I'm really not liking it :( ]
2. A cheap book/An expensive book
I'm pretty stingy when it comes to buying books. Unless I really really want the book I won't pay more than maybe $12. I generally get most of my books from Op Shops anyway so i rarely pay for than $3 for those. So excluding second hand books, the cheapest book I've bought was The Last Anniversary by Lianne Morietty ($3 from Big W!). The most expensive book I've personally bought is Hot Dudes Reading and that was $21. I so regret buying that now as it barely took me any time to read and I really don't think it was worth that, but #YOLO!
3. A book with a male protagonist/A book with a female protagonist.
A book with a male protagonist would be Sustained by Emma Chase. This is a New Adult book about some fancy lawyer guy who somehow ends up helping out this woman and her 6 kids with some legal issues. I was surprised that it was told completely from the guy's P.O.V, but I didn't end up liking it unfortunately. A book with a female protagonist would be... pretty much every book I read?? The latest one would be The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen. That was really good, highly recommend!
4. A book you read quickly/A book that took you long to read.
Thank God for Goodreads because otherwise I wouldn't have a clue.I do read a lot of books in a day, but one book I remember I read without any breaks whatsoever and that was On the Fence by Kasie West! It was just so damn good! And on the other side, The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot took me what felt like forever to read (7 days) which considering its size is ridonkulous!
5. A pretty cover/An ugly cover.
Pretty much every cover of every book by Kiera Cass is gorgeous but I particularly like The Heir because of the dress. The ugliest cover I own (that I can think of because I am not going through all of my books) is Easy by Tammara Webber. Seriously I just do not like that cover, but I freaking LOVE the story! So don't be put off by the ew cover!
6. A national book/An international book.
The Things I Didn't Say by Kylie Fornasier is an amazing book set in Australia and written by an Australia author! It's about a girl who has Selective Mutism (this doesn't mean she chooses not to speak, it's a form of anxiety) and she has to move schools because of certain things that happened. So the story is about her dealing with SM while in a new school and making new friends etc. It's just really good, trust me. For an interntional book I chose Beautiful Secret by Christina Lauren because I absolutely LOVE this book and it's set in England AND America. Do I get bonus points?
7. A thin book/A thick book.
The Body by Stephen King is the thinnest book I own and I am so not impressed! When I bought the book I was expecting it to be a novel but no, I apparently bought the version that was 'dumbed' down for school and so it's only 80 pages long! It's too soon to talk about it. The thickest book (even though its not the longest book I own for some reason) is After We Fell by Anna Todd which is HUGE!
8. A fiction book/A non-fiction book.
The majority of my books are fiction, but one I can see right now is I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella which was really good! A non-fiction book would be Choosing Hope by (author). This was such a great book, very sad as it is about a teacher's experience in the primary school that was part of one of the shootings in America, but I would definitely recommend it. *I wrote this paragraph as a draft and then left my computer for a few hours so I forgot to edit it again. I'll fix it tomorrow :)
9. A romantic book/An action book.
Bared to You by Sylvia Day is probably the most 'romantic' book I have! Such a good series though. I don't have many action books but from what I remember, there was quite a bit of action in An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir.
10. A book that made you happy/One that made you sad.
The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson was such a cute read, and the vibe it gave was very happy which I enjoyed a lot! I don't think any book has made me as sad as Me Before You by Jo Jo Moyes did. I felt ALL of the emotions reading that, it was intense. I still get a little emotional thinking about it. I don't really know how I'll handle the movie OMG.
