Flip the Page Book Challenge

Hi all!

Today I’m going to be doing a really fun book tag that I found while browsing booktube, the Flip the Page book challenge!

This challenge has you asking your followers for a shelf number, book number and page number, which are your coordinates, and using the numbers, you come up with a new identity and life for yourself!

The original idea can be found here:

1. You’re getting a new identity! Let the coordinates guide you to a book, flip to the page you were given, and the first name you see is now your new name!

Coordinates: 3 – 12 – 389.
Book: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor.

  • My new name is Akiva! That’s actually pretty cool.

2. It’s time to get up and move the heck out of your town! The location of the book your coordinates lead you to will be where you’re moving.

Coordinates: 4 – 29 – 222
Book: Price and Prejudice by Jane Austen

  • I’m moving to Brighton, England! Of all the fantasy books I have on my shelf, and I’m moving to Brighton.

3. You’re all settled into your new home, but you’ve gotta get a job to get that cash money flow goin. Create a job using the first object you find with the coordinates and page number.

Coordinates: 3 – 4 – 120
Book: Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

  • The first object I came across was a “gryphon on a door”, which is a mythological creature that’s either been painted or carved onto a door. So I’m a fancy door maker?

4. You’ve started your job and you’ve started developing feelings for a coworker. Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, and the first character you come across will be the character you’re falling for.

Coordinates: 2 – 12 – 144
Book: Fence Vol 1 by C.S. Pacat and Johanna the Mad

  • The character I’m falling for is Aiden! Which, yes! But also he’s gay so I don’t see us working out.

5. Using the coordinates & the page number, the first piece of dialogue you come across will be the first thing you say to your potential lover.

Coordinates: 1 – 17 – 77
Book: Circe by Madeline Miller

  • “Does no one have the courage? Will no one dare to face me?” That is a bombass thing to say to my potential gay lover, Aiden.

6. That line really got to them, next thing you know you’re in love! You’re going to propose, but buying a wedding ring is too expensive. Using the coordinates & flipping the page to the page number you were given, the first object you come across will be what you propose with.

Coordinates: 2 – 12 – 265
Book: The Ruin of Kings by Jenn Lyons (I did book 13 instead because I had already done book 12 on this shelf)

  • Fried pork belly. I’m proposing to my gay lover with fried pork belly. Wow, Aiden’s standards have really gone down.

7. We’ve arrived at your wedding! Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, and the first piece of dialogue you find will be the first line in your vows.

Coordinates: 4 – 16 – 349
Book: The Name of All Things by Jenn Lyons

  • My first line in my vows is: “How dare–” Yeah, that sounds like me.

8. It’s honey moon time! Wherever the book’s location that your coordinates lead you to will be the destination for your lovers retreat!

Coordinates: 2 – 16 – 143
Book: The Summer Palace by C.S. Pacat

  • My honeymoon will be in Vere! I’m actually so excited haha.

9. Things got a little cray on the honeymoon and now you’re expecting a baby! With the next coordinates find your next book and flip the page to the page number you were given. The first name you find will be the name of your first born child!

Coordinates: 3 – 17 – 389
Book: Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater

  • My baby’s name will be Adam 😭

10. We’re time jumping 5 years & your child is desperately begging for a pet! Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, & the first creature you come across will be your pet! If you don’t find a creature, then the first object you find will have to be used as a pet replacement.

Coordinates: 2 – 2 – 286
Book: If Not, Winter: Fragments of Sappho by Anne Carson

  • A honey bee! That sounds kind of dangerous for a five year old, but what do I know, I married a gay man.

11. Your child is going to school! Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, using words on that page create the name of their school.

Coordinates: 3 – 26 – 398
Book: Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones (there’s not 398 pages in this book, so I just did the very last page)

“Calcifer’s Liar Market.” I think that’s a pretty cool name for a school.

12. You decide you’re going to start a YT channel for a side hobby! Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, & find something on that page that will be the core topic of your channel.

Coordinates: 2 – 22- 222
Book: If Not, Winter: Fragments of Sappho by Anne Carson

This is a book of poetry so the only thing on this page is “We shall give, says father”. So I’m just going to say poetry will be the topic of my channel.

13. Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, & using words from that page create a YT channel name.

Coordinates: 3 – 3 – 3
Book: I Hope You Get This Message by Farah Naz Rishi

The first few pages were of a transcript from an alien race so I chose a pretty cool name from that: “The Arbiter of Scion”.

14. Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, & the first piece of dialogue you see is how you’ll greet your viewers each time you start a video.

Coordinates: 3 – 14 – 277
Book: The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern

“There are three things lost in time.” Technically there’s no dialogue on this page or the few pages after, so I just chose one of the italicised lines on this page — and it’s such a cool opening!

15. You’ve decided to write a book! Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, & using words from that page create a book title.

Coordinates: 4 – 25 – 244
Book: Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

This page describes all the different House of Yale, so I’m choosing: “The Lethe Manuscript” as my book title.

16. Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, & the first line you see will be the opening line for your book.

Coordinates: 2 – 20 – 200
Book: The Princess Bride by William Goldman

“Dummy, dummy, go out now and fill your tummy.” OMG I’M DEAD. 😂

17. PLOT TWIST! The reason you even created a new identity for yourself is because a killer was after you! Now that you’re a mega famous author & youtuber, they’ve tracked you down again & they’re coming for you! Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, & the first character you see will be your killer!

Coordinates: 3 – 30 – 300
Book: The Fever King by Victoria Lee

Dara Shirazi will kill me! May I say that’s how I always wanted to go out.

18. One day you’re setting up to film a YT video when you’re suddenly struck by the killer! Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, & the first object you come across is what they used to kill you.

Coordinates: 1 – 18 – 387
Book: City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare

“Cliff”. So Dara Shirazi will push me off a cliff! That devil. (Also interesting that I’m pushed off a cliff while filming a YT video 😅).

19. Find the book using your coordinates, flip the page to the page number you were given, & the first line you see will go on your tombstone.

Coordinates: 4 – 10 – 249
Book: The Binding by Bridget Collins

“Is that what you want?” Interesting words for my tombstone I guess? I guess I could be asking Dara “Is this what you wan, BITCH!?”
