The Book Blogger Memory Challenge

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.

The Rules

  • 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.

I Tag:

As always, you don’t have to do it, but I’d love to see what you come up with!

  1. Hahaha, I love always love reading versions of this tag! 🥰 (Especially since I was tagged quite a while ago and my bad memory is totally not profiting off everyone else’s **inspiring** answers 😁😇)
    I also always intended to read Gone as a teenager … and never did. Now, I’ve kind of lost interest 😅 But I HAVE read The Knife of Never Letting Go and absolute adore the entire Chaos Walking trilogy, so I would actually very much recommend that one! 🤗

    1. I don’t know what my brain was doing because I could think of more books I haven’t actually read than those I have… There are so many series I had interest in back in the day that I never got around to 😂 My mum was watching the Chaos Walking film the other day, and it did seem interesting!

  2. I actually did the tag last month, but thank you so much for thinking of me 🙂 it was such a struggle to come up with answers haha I think I picked The Knife of Never Letting Go for that prompt as well.

  3. Loved reading your answers! And lol, I totally relate about Priory—I was so disappointed that I didn’t love the story as much as I loved this cover. I kept a physical copy of this tome purely for the aesthetic 😂 And yaas, never miss an opportunity to gush about Evelyn Hugo. I love that book so much!
