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.
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.
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.
