I saw this challenge on Maddie’s blog Of Reading and Random Things, and it was so fun, but I also knew that I might struggled with it. That is why I put it off until now.. so wish me luck!
Rules: You must answer these questions without looking anything up on the internet and without looking at your bookshelves
1. Name a book written by an author called Michael.
Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton
2. Name a book with a dragon on the cover.
Ice Dragon by George R.R. Martin
This book is absolutely beautiful. I adore the illustrations, and it is a great addition to my shelves. Look at the dragon?! It is just so cool!
3. Name a book about a character called George.
I saw Mary Poppins Returns recently, so I obviously have that story on the brain. I know that George Banks isn’t a huge character in the books, but he is still in there.
4. Name a book written by an author with the surname Smith.
White Teeth by Zadie Smith
I have yet to read anything by Zadie Smith, but all of her books are on my TBR. I have heard great things about her writing, and the idea behind all of her stories definitely appeal to me. I have to finally pick one up this year!
5. Name a book set in Australia.
Bridge of Clay by Markus Zusak
I received a signed copy of Bridge of Clay for Christmas, and I hope to get to it soon. I am participating in the Book Riot Reader Harder challenge, and one of the prompts is to read a book set in Oceania- and Bridge of Clay is the book I hope to read. It is odd because I really can not think of another book set in Australia…
6. Name a book with the name of a month in the title.
The Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North
I know that the August in this case is actually a person names, but hey it still counts! This is another book I have not yet read, but I want to. I have heard really great things about it, but stories where days or lifetimes keeps repeating are not usually my thing. I still want to give it a chance though!
7. Name a book with a knife on the cover.
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
8. Name a book with the word ‘one’ in the title.
One by Sarah Crossan
9. Name a book with an eponymous title.
Circe by Madeleine Miller
Is eponymous a word I should know?! In case you are like me and had no idea –
eponymous- (of a thing) named after a particular person.
10. Name a book turned into a movie.
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
I think To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before was probably my favourite adaptation of 2018! I have seen it multiple times and it never fails to put me in a good mood. I just love Laura Jean and Peter, and something about it reminds me of the movies I used to love growing up, like Bring It On and Clueless.
