Book Tag – Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt

Hello Bookworms!

This month I decided to do a tag that was related to my bookcases. I love searching through them and picking out books that match the question. I always seem to find books that I’d forgotten about. I originally saw this on nickimags @ The Secret Library Book Blog.

1. Find an author name or title with a Z in it

The Wizard of Oz by L Frank Baum – this was a lucky find in a charity shop that cost me £2. It’s in an immaculate condition and the illustrations are beautiful.

2. Find a classic


3. Find a book with a key on it


4. Find something on your bookshelf that is not a book

I have a wooden metronome that was given to me by an elderly friend of my father in laws. I’m not sure how old it is but I know it is very precious.

5. Find the oldest book on your shelf

 This was my husband’s first book so it is quite old!

6. Find a book with a woman on it


7. Find a book that has an animal in it


8. Find a book with a male protagonist

Landon Carter from A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

9. Find a book with only words on the cover


10. Find a book with illustrations in it


11. Find a book with gold lettering


12. Find a diary, true or fictional


It’s not necessarily laid out as a diary but it reads in that way.

13. Find a book written by an author with a common surname (like Smith)


14. Find a favourite childhood book


15. Find a book on your shelf that takes place in the earliest time period


16. Find a hardback book without a jacket

The Chamber of Secret by J.K. Rowling

17. Find a teal/turquoise coloured book


18. Find a book with stars on it


19. Find a non YA book


20. Find a book with a beautiful cover


That was a lot of fun. Some of the questions were hard to answer like a book with a key on it but I realised how many pretty books I have on my bookcase. If you fancy joining in then consider yourself tagged!
