I Would Give Up the Internet

The Extraordinary Means Tag.

First off, I’m so thrilled that Extraordinary Means by Robyn Schneider (which I just learned is pronounced with /ɪ/ and not /aɪ/; thank you Margot!) is coming out this month! As you know—or not (c’mon, look at my header!)—her debut The Beginning of Everything is one of my favorites. And so when I was tagged to do this challenge, I got pumped up!

… Until I saw the actual challenge. Boy, there are some really torturous questions here! But. Let’s get down with it.

Thank you Wesaun for the tag! (Shucks! I realized I don’t know your YouTube channel!) Also, this is originally a video tag but whatever.

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

To Kill a Mockingbird 01

This is a serious commitment. SERIOUS. I mean. The inter-freaking-net! For a month. So I’m going with the one book that started it all for me. Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird. Imagine me walking the hall with All The Swagger.

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

How can you live WITHOUT something you absolutely love for a year? HOW? It has to be Rainbow Rowell. I mean. She’s funny and smart and I’m guessing she flies Class A, too.

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

 Simon Vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda   Winger 06

HAHA. Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli or Winger by Andrew Smith. And I wouldn’t settle for anything less. It’s With The Best Team or nothing. I’m not even kidding. I will burn Hollywood to ashes before they do anything stupid. Preferably with Josh Boone helming and John Bailey doing the cinematography.

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

That’s it. I MEAN. Le fuck?* This is Extraordinary indeed! But. Let’s say, HYPOTHETICALLY. It’ll be the world of the Percy Jackson books. I’ll be an Athena kid. And I’ll be friends with the gang. Cross that, BEST friends.

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

As if the interwebs need more evidence of my weirdness. John Green. Have you seen how fast he speaks? There’ll be no time wasted! Plus he’s funny and smart (do we have a trend here?) and geeky and, OH, he’s a Swiftie!

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

I’m blanking on this one. Mainly because the girls I’d want to date are taken and I approve of the couple. Hmm. Maybe Sam from The Perks of Being a Wallflower? I know I know. There’s the boyfriend. We’d just hang out. OR since we’re playing extremes. I’d take Simon Spiers to an Oreo date! He’s gay. He’s taken. We’ll have fun.

  1. Oh wow, those are some extraordinary means indeed. This is funny because I definitely wouldn’t follow suit in most of these exchanges, although that might be because I don’t read much contemporary. I would definitely consider getting Simon Vs into Hollywood, though.

    I’d give up the Internet for LOTR, give up pizza for GRRM, would refuse to give up reading, give up my Google search history for Victoria Schwab, and would again refuse to give up my money. (Look, how am I supposed to buy books without money? I suppose I could snag a rich guy with a huge library, but those people are normally evil.)


      1. Hahaha! YES. I have a cult or something. (666 followers my arse, WordPress.)

        But yeah. I, myself, don’t think can really keep these “pledges.” I mean, they’re ridiculously extreme. But it was fun answering them, if only for a parallel universe. Or something.

        I’d consider GRRM, but mostly just so he can tell me what happens because (and, I mean, this is grim) there’s a possibility that he might not be able to finish penning the last book? So there’s that.



  2. Omg. THAT VLOG IS AWESOME. and I also love your answers, but I don’t even know if I’d survive this tag!! HAHA. I’m so shy I wouldn’t care who I sat next to on a plane ride, I would be very busy ignoring them. 😉 And my google search history isn’t actually that bad, I mean, I’m a writer. Sooooo. There’s murder and mayhem on there, but it’s not TOO WEIRD. Still. xD hehe! I’ll put this on my to-do list. Thanks for the tag!!


    1. Margot Wood is AWESOME! But yeah. I totally get it. You’d probably build a pile of books as like a barricade ’cause that’s just how you roll. 😉 Also, how can people NOT have weird Google search histories?


  3. BROWNIE POINTS FOR CHOOSING TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. I would seriously kill mockingbirds if given the chance to have a prized and SIGNED first edition. Thanks for tagging me! (and reminding me that I have a lot of catching up to do with tags ~_~)



    Anyway, I also don’t do tags on the blog and I REFUSE TO ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS, SIR.

    I’d quit the Internet for a month too for TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD BECAUSE OF ALL THE OBVIOUS REASONS


  5. How in the world did you answer these?! I’m so up for the challenge, but it may take me a while to figure out how to do it. xD Thank goodness these are hypothetical questions.

    Ooh, nice choice for #1. And Sam is awesome, I want to be her friend.
