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.

Oh my! A tag like thos would be impossible for me!! You really did great!!!
Thank you! It was really hard. I had to really think about some of these and was so tempted to peek at my shelves!
Ah White Teeth is so good and Zadie Smith is one of my favourite writers! Great post, thank you for sharing 🙂
That is good to know! I have a feeling I will really love her work.
This was tough! I had a hard time coming up with some of these prompts off the top of my head. Great job :]
It really was! It took me longer than I am willing to admit!
This sounds super fun! You should definitely pick up First Fifteen Lives of Harry August, it’s a wonderful book.
That is good to hear! It is definitely on my list.
Haha, I loved this tag and your answers. And thank you for the added definition! (Also Priory Of The Orange Tree is also another really good book with dragons on the cover!)
Thanks! I have preordered Priory. I can not wait!
Congrats for finishing this! It sounds so difficult haha.
Thanks! It really was.
This tag seems so hard! I’m amazed at your memory <3
Thanks! It took me a while to come up with some of these that is for sure.
I loved circe too! And to all the boys was a great book and movie! Awesome answers!
Thank you! I am tempted to reread Circe.
Fun challenge! I agree, it is too much to expect people to know what eponymous means. (I didn’t even bother to try type it, copy/paste baby)
Such an odd word!
Circe is one that I recommend too!
Congrats on completing this challenge!
I can’t believe I forgot The Knife of Never Letting Go, it literally has ‘knife’ in the title haha 😀
I’m definitely adding Circe to my TBR, it looks really interesting 🙂
Thank you! It came to my mind instantly but then I couldn’t quite picture the cover. I really think you will enjoy Circe!
This looks like a really fun one!
It was fun!
