Book Superlatives Tag!

A tag again! Wasn’t tagged (pbtbt) but it was created by Chelsea Palmer!

1. Best Dressed: A book with a beautiful cover

Black Leopard Red Wolf by Marlon James – While unfortunately I didn’t care for this book, I can’t deny that it’s absolutely beautiful. This picture doesn’t do it justice, man.

2. Class Clown: A book that made you lol

A Man & His Cat by Umi Sakurai – This is a cute, simple, fluffy manga about a man who adopts a cat. While I expected this to be funny, which it is, I didn’t also expect it to pull on my heartstrings, which it did.

3. Cutest Couple: A book that features your favorite OTP

Kiss Him, Not Me! by Junko – I chose this one because my ship actually became canon, man. That never happens, dammit. I was so proud of me for picking the right one.

4. Most Popular: The most hyped book on your shelf

Coming in at nearly seven million ratings on Goodreads, this is the most popular book I own!

5. Nicest Car: The most expensive book you own

Not including my $300 organic chemistry textbook or any other text book, it would have to be Fruits Basket by Natsuki Takaya, specifically volume 23.

Why? Because it’s the last volume of an out-of-print manga series, and since the anime was rebooted, copies of this puppy have become scarce. I think I paid forty bucks for this thing, and honestly I’m glad I did: they’re going for 60-100 now, last time I checked.

6. Worst Car: A book with a bad cover but still a solid story that took you for a ride

Easy by Tammara Webber. This is the first romance I rated five stars but man, that cover.

7. Biggest Nerd: The nerdiest book you own

Probably one of these three. All of them are nonfiction and deal somehow with computers or psychology, both of which I have degrees in, so I think they’re pretty neat.

8. Most Likely to Be Late: A book that is under hyped and you are still waiting for the fandom to arrive

Scar Night by Alan Campbell. PLEASE AUGH. PLEASE.

9. Most Likely to Succeed: A first book in a series that is going places

Shaman’s Crossing by Robin Hobb – While I’m in the middle of the second book and it’s definitely a more difficult read than the first one was emotion-wise, I still feel like this series could turn out to be amazing. I just need something HAPPY TO HAPPEN PLEASE D:

10. Most Athletic: The biggest book you own (physical size or page length)

Jerusalem by Alan Moore. This might not be the biggest size-wise, but it’s the longest book I own, coming in at 1266 pages. I haven’t read it yet because it’s intimidating. But you can bet your butt I picked it up when I saw it for eight dollars. I do intend on reading this… at some point. When I get a buddy because I’m scared.

It is really heavy.

11. Most Intellectual: The most thought-provoking book you’ve read

Honestly probably this text book. I know it’s a bit of a cheat answer, but I’m serious. This is the book that drove me off the psychology path and onto the neuroscience one (and would later farther drive me into computer science, where I am now. I’d love to get back to neuroscience in the future though).

This book is just so interesting. I read it cover to cover. Brains are so weird.

12. Best All Around: A book or series that you will always recommend to anyone

His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik for sure. Recently this book has been getting some hype around it, as people have started picking it up after reading Uprooted or Spinning Silver but man this is Naomi Novik’s magnum opus. It’s just so good and I feel like all sorts of people could like this one.

Fantasy fans, military buffs, historical fans, animal fans, all sorts!

And that’s it! If you have uh… brown hair, or are wearing a shirt with blue on it, I tag you. Peer pressure, do it.
