I’ve said time and time again that I have a terrible memory, so this post made me struggle more than is actually normal, but I had a blast writing it, so thanks to Dini @ Dinipandareads for tagging me! It did take me a ridiculous amount of time to come up with these answers, and I kept revisiting this in the drafts and hoping to come up with something, but I finally managed it.
This tag was originally created by Laura @ Laura’s Book Reviews.
- You have to answer the prompts without using the internet or looking at your bookshelves.
- Your answers have to all come from memory!
- Make sure to link to the person who originally tagged you.
- Once you’re done, you can tag five other people if you’d like.
1) Name a book written by an author called Michael
Starting off with a book I haven’t read Gone by Michael Grant. I remember seeing the sprayed edges version of this series at my local—and only—English bookshop and thinking that I wanted to read them. However, I never did.
2) Name a book with a dragon on the cover
This one goes to one of the most gorgeous books I own: The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon. It is a real shame that my favourite part of the book was exactly that, the cover, because I had high hopes for it.
3) Name a book about a character called George
This had me struggling so hard. I was thinking about different books for days but I wasn’t until I started reading A Single Man by Christopher Isherwood that I finally found a George.
4) Name a book written by an author with the surname Smith
For a name as common as Smith, I sure had a hard time thinking of a book for this prompt. In the end, I remembered Will Smith’s new book, Will.
5) Name a book set in Australia
I remembered watching the film adaptation of this for my Postcolonial Studies course and really enjoying it, so I went with Picnic at Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay. I’m thinking that I’d probably enjoy the book just as much, if not more, so I might have to give it a try.
6) Name a book with the name of a month in the title
I… think I give up for this one. I’ve been thinking that I know a book with January in the title but I just can’t think of it, and despite squeezing my brain for something for a week, I just can’t think of anything.
7) Name a book with a knife on the cover
On the same vein as Gone, The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness is another book I was interested in a few years ago but never got around to.
8) Name a book with the word ‘one’ in the title
Finally, one prompt that was actually easy. One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston immediately popped into my head as I read the list of prompts for this challenge.
9) Name a book with a eponymous title
Any excuse is a good one to mention The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid so I obviously had to choose it for this one.
10) Name a book turned into a movie
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer is THE film adaptation for me, so I had to go with it. This film was the reason I gave the book a chance, and the book was what truly kick-started my love of reading.
As always, you don’t have to do it, but I’d love to see what you come up with!
