book tag

-| Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt |-

So today I decided to mix things up and do the Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt.
I first saw this over on the I won’t Say I’m In Love With Reading blog, it looked like a lot of fun and something different to usual book tags so I decided to give it a go!

Let’s get our hunt on!

1. Find an author name or title with Z in:

Part of your world by Liz Braswell

2. Find a classic:

Sherlock Holmes Volume. 1 by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

3. Find a book with a key on it:

The Last Mile by David Baldacci – you have a whole bunch of keys on here!

4. Find something on your shelf that’s not a book:

Graduation teddy holding my flag from the Book Box Club

5. Find the oldest book on your shelf:

The Handmaids Tale by Margaret Atwood which was first published in 1985.

6. Find a book with a girl on it:

The Ice Princess by Camilla Lackberg

7. Find a book with an animal on it:

The Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill

8. Find a book with a male protagonist:

Death Note by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata

9. Find a book with only words on the cover:

Nomad by James Swallow

10. Find a book with illustrations in it:

Tangleweed and Brine by Deidre Sullivan

11. Find a book with gold lettering:

Under a dancing star by Laura Wood

12. Find a diary, true or fictional:

The Home by Karen Osman – Not a diary but features quite a lot of diary entries.

13. Find a book written by an author with a common name (like smith):

Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith

14. Find a book with a close up of something on it:

The Craftsman by Sharon Bolton (close up of a coffin plaque)

15. Find a book on yourself that takes place in the earliest time period:

The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood takes place from 1933

16. Find a hardcover book without a dust jacket:

100 Nasty Women of History by Hannah Jewell

17. Find a teal/turquoise book:

Darkside by Belinda Bauer

18. Find a book with stars on it:

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

19. Find a non YA book:

Stasi Wolf (Karen Muller #2) by David Young

I can’t leave it at 19 so I’ve added the next question

20. Find your newest addition:

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow

That was a lot more difficult than I expected! But it was definitely worth it.
If you have done this then please leave your link so I can head over, I love seeing what others have for their answers.

See you in the next one…

  1. OMG this looks like so much fun!! Most of my books are piled up on the floor at the moment (in a fit of madness I decided I didn’t like my rainbow shelves, and now I’m regretting every decision I’ve ever made)… but when they are back on shelves then I totally want to do this!!

      1. I think I’m going to go back to having a shelf dedicated to special editions, and a shelf sorted by author, then publication date (with series together). Although, it’s not 100% confirmed… I mean, I kind of want the rainbow shelves back, but it was so hard to find anything!!
