While browsing through fellow book blogger’s post, I encountered this book tag on KRISTIN @ KRISTIN KRAVES BOOKS. It looked fun so I decided to go with it as well. But I knew then that it would be futile and that I would be struggling with it! I have such poor memory hahaha. There are ten items on the list but they wrapped me in utter confusion, which, I guess, made this book tag more interesting and fun.
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.
Hanover Place by Michael Thomas
2. Name a book with a dragon on the cover.
Eragon by Christopher Paolini
I haven’t read the book yet but I am quite familiar with the movie (I haven’t watched that either!). However, since I saw the movie’s trailer, I was quite aware that it involves dragons. Moreover, I have encountered the book numerous times while browsing through bookshelves in bookstores. So when I saw the item on the book tag, it was the first book that came into my mind. Plus I didn’t want to place any of those George Martin books! Haha. Not a hater of his series though.
3. Name a book about a character called George.
George Weasley of the Harry Potter Series
This really was quite difficult for me. Because of the thousands of characters that I have encountered while reading, I have forgotten nearly all of them. However, Harry Potter Series’ George Weasley stands out (perhaps because he was also a big part of the movie). One-half of the playful red-headed Weasley twins, George surely does leave an impression. Actually, all of the Weasleys leave a lasting impression.
4. Name a book written by an author with the surname Smith.
On Beauty by Zadie Smith
Zadie Smith is quite popular although it wasn’t until doing must-read challenges that I kept encountering her and her works. Some of her works are included in the 1,001 Books You Must Read Before You Die. Because of this, my curiosity was piqued and even included On Beauty in my 2019 Top 20 Books To Read.
5. Name a book set in Australia.
To Be The Best by Barbara Taylor Bradford
Another challenging question. I really had to think hard on this but the only book that keeps crossing my mind is Barbara Taylor Bradford’s To Be The Best, the third book in her Emma Harte series. I am cognizant that the book wasn’t primarily set in Australia but the characters do jet on and off there. I read it first before I read A Woman of Substance, the first book in the series.
6. Name a book with the name of a month in the title.
I have failed. Try as I might, I can’t remember encountering or having read any books with a name of the month on its title. Too bad really.
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 Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich by Alexander Solzhenitsyn
9. Name a book with an eponymous title.
David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
10. Name a book turned into a movie.
Suite Francaise by Irène Némirovsky
To be honest, I didn’t know that Suite Francaise was adapted into a movie although the book cover gave away as much. Yes, I admit. I kind of cheated, I confirmed with Google first before putting the book here. I am not really much of a movie goer. I have neither watched the movie nor read the book but I am so looking forward to the book. However, I am holding back on it yet because, well, I have been saturated with books about World War II already. Haha.
I know my memory failed me horribly but still I am happy to have done this book tag. You can do the book tag too (I am not again going to tag anyone). Just never forget to tag me in case you choose to do so. I want to find out how you fared!
