I was googling, as one days, and stumbled across this tag at Laura's Book Reviews (which, I believe, is a now abandoned blog?) and I really wanted to have a go!
This is called The Book Blogger Memory Tag, which should be absolutely fabulous for me because I have the memory of Dory from Finding Nemo.
The rules are basically answer the questions with no googling or research! Let's do this!
(Note: After I answered the questions I did go google for correct spellings and book covers.)
1. Name a book written by an author called Michael.
This one I can do with ease because one of my favourite authors in the entire world is called Michael Grant!
2. Name a book with a dragon on the cover.
Ooh, this too is fabulously in my capabilities! I can name several, including Seraphina by Rachel Hartman and Talon by Julie Kagawa and Eragon by Christopher Paolini.
3. Name a book about a character called George.
All I can think of is Curious George, from the children's book. But it's still a GEORGE, so that's counted, right?
4. Name a book written by an author with the surname Smith.
You think this'd be easy...why is it not easy?! I'm absolutely wracking my brain and I...I've got nothing.
5. Name a book set in Australia.
This I find a hilarious question and maybe it would've been better if it had been "name a book in a country set outside your own"...because I AM AUSTRALIAN. Anyway.
What about The Protected by Claire Zorn? Or Looking for Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta? Or, one of my top favourites, Life In Outer Space by Melissa Keil?
6. Name a book with the name of a month in the title.
Oh, this is a good one and I have a book on the tip of my braincells but ahhhh. WHAT IS IT?
All I can think of is the first sentence of The Scorpio Races which mentions the month of November. But that's not a book title.
So I fail.
7. Name a book with a knife on the cover.
Easy! The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness and Winterspell by Claire Legrand.
8. Name a book with the word "one" in the title.
Yay! I feel so much better because I can do this! What about Bird by Crystal Chan or Butter by Erin Lange.
9. Name a book with an eponymous title.
I had to google what "eponymous" meant and I believe saying The Bane Chronicles would count, right?
10. Name a book turned into a movie.
What about The Fault in Our Stars or The Maze Runner or If I Stay?! I SO SCORE AT THIS ONE!
So basically I rocked the easy questions and failed the super hard ones. So typical. So very Dory of me.
feel free to snag these questions for your own blog, or, if you like, answer them in the comment section!
