Jacquie at Rattle the Stars tagged me for the Book Blogger Memory Challenge. Everyone knows (I hope!) I have the best of intentions with tags, and while I appreciate every single time I’ve been tagged or nominated, I’m behind on all the ones I want to do! That said, I couldn’t resist a memory challenge. I love this type of thing, and well, it was absolutely challenging…and fun, too!
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, which I read years ago after I saw the movie. I think I need a re-read of that one!
2. Name a book with a dragon on the cover.
Has anyone read Puff, the Magic Dragon? We were obsessed with him as children, and that was the first book that came to mind. Now I have an earworm of the song, “Puff, the magic dragon, lived by the sea…….” 🎵 🎶 🎼
3. Name a book about a character called George.
My choice for this would have to be Curious George! I was obsessed with him, too! Such a cute little monkey and so much adventurous!
4. Name a book written by an author with the surname Smith.
One of my favorite North Carolina authors is Lee Smith, and my favorite book from her is On Agate Hill. I highly recommend it!
5. Name a book set in Australia.
I read a rather epic book by Kimberley Freeman called Wildflower Hill, which was set in Australia. It caused my to seek out all of her books, and I think I own all that I’m able to get my hands on. Her most recent is only available in Australia, and The Book Depository will not ship it over for some reason? I want that book!
6. Name a book with the name of a month in the title.
This is really hard, but I think I have one on my shelf called An Enchanted April or The Enchanted April? I do not recall the author.
7. Name a book with a knife on the cover.
The Word is Murder by Anthony Horowitz has a knife on the cover, and I remember feeling a bit silly putting my pretty roses next to that cover when I took the photo. 😂 I actually did something similar today because I just remembered I posted a bookmail pic on instagram of an ARC with a knife on the cover, The Lovely Wife! I placed an orchid beside the aggressive cover. Everything needs a little flower distraction. 😂
8. Name a book with the word ‘one’ in the title.
Ready, Player, One is my choice, and I own it, but have not read it yet. If you have read it, did you enjoy it? I’m excited about the 80s references!
9. Name a book with a eponymous title.
I have to go with the formidable Sadie, a book I recently reviewed. Don’t miss this heartbreaking book!
10. Name a book turned into a movie.
Crazy Rich Asians has been made into a movie, but I have not yet read that book either, though I own it. I hope to get it to it soon! I also need to see the movie! But book first!
This was so much fun! Thanks again for the tag, Jacquie! I will tag three people I know who, it’s safe to say, absolutely love tags: Bibi, Sara , and Princess of Pages. To you three very special ladies, I promise to do a tag from each of you soon! Because I do tags! (Sometimes!) ♥️ xo To anyone else who found this fun and would like to do it, I’m tagging you, too! Happy reading, everyone! Jennifer THR
