It’s time to catch up on book tags and memes since it’s been a while since I’ve done one! While I wasn’t directly tagged on this one, it seemed so much fun reading Marta’s responses.
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 (wasn’t directly tagged but please check out Marta’s blog!)
- Once you’re done, you can tag five other people if you’d like.
Name a book written by an author called Michael
Michael Grant! (I really hope that’s his last name because it’s been a loooongg time since I read anything by him). I think he wrote Gone, the first book in a series about adults who go missing in a town, leaving only the teens behind.
And also some book about Eve (like as in Adam and Eve) but make it sci-fi. Its cover was like a techy apple?
Name a book with a dragon on the cover
Fireborne by Rosaria Munda. I actually liked the original cover with a single dragon silhouette but they’ve changed it to match the rest of the series – which is fine but I wish they had decided that before printing the first edition.
Name a book about a character called George
…does Curious George the monkey count? I mean, he has books on him…right?
Is it just me or ‘George’ isn’t a very common name to use for male leads or memorable secondary characters?
Name a book written by an author with the surname Smith
L.J. Smith! I absolutely adore her Night World series. (We don’t talk about The Vampire Diaries in this house #teamStefan)
Name a book set in Australia
On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. At least, I think that’s the full name. I always just remember Jellicoe Road. I distinctly remember the author being from Australia-ish so I’d like to think the book was also set there.
(Please correct me if I’m wrong!)
Name a book with the name of a month in the title
Oh dear. I was stumped for a second, but I think The Last of August by Brittany Cavallaro should count, right? Does it matter that the month is technically a guy’s name?
Name a book with a knife on the cover
I love knives on covers, although in fantasy worlds, are they technically knives or more like daggers? Things to ponder on for a non-weapon expert…
The first books I can think of are Graceling (epic!) by Kristin Cashore and Defy by Sara B. Larson. I did a comparison actually between these 2 covers because they looked vaguely similar with the prominent dagger/knife for a cover.
Name a book with the word ‘one’ in the title
Karen M. McManus’ most well known books, One of Us is Lying and One of Us is Next. These should definitely become classics, don’t you think?
Name a book with an eponymous title
I had to look up ‘eponymous’ in the dictionary. That’s not against the rules right?
I’m assuming any book title with the protagonist’s name in it should count. So I’m going to go with The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab. Have I read this book yet? No. But I definitely keep using it for examples of prompts for some reason.
Name a book turned into a movie
I love that the last one is an easy one. So many movies based on books. The Hunger Games, Twilight, The Fault in Our Stars, etc. I recently contemplated that these kinds of books – famous enough to become a movie – might very well one day be considered 21st-century classics.
That’s it from me! If you enjoyed reading this, please consider yourselves tagged. I would never force any of you to participate, but am always happy to see what your answers would be if you choose to do so.
Hope you all have a lovely day! xx
