So I recognise I’ve been AWOL from my blog for a while. Again. What can I say? I’m a serial offender. But in my efforts to, at the least, catch up with some blog reading I found this fun little challenge for book lovers on the Secret Library Book Blog (who in turn found it on Books and Me!). Being an avid reader I couldn’t resist giving it a go. So, what’s required?
Find a book on your bookshelves that contains (either on the cover or in the title) an example for each category. You must have a separate book for all 20, get as creative as you want and do it within five minutes!! (or longer if you have way too many books on way too many overcrowded shelves!) So here goes!
Chocolat by Joanne Harris
Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline
Making Bombs for Hitler by Marsha Forchuk Skrypuch
The Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M. Auel
Beacon 23 by Hugh Howey
6. Something you read
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
7. Body of water
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
8. Product of Fire
The Burning Times by Jeanne Kalogridis
A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin
House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski
11. Item of clothing
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne
12. Family member
Daughters of Fortune by Tara Hyland
13. Time of day
Congo Dawn by Katherine Scholes
Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks
15. Paranormal being
The Demon Crown by James Rollins
The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris
Winter Men by Jesper Bugge Kold
Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly
19. Celestial body
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
20. Something that grows
The Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchison
So there’s my 20. I probably could’ve had multiple books for most of those categories so it was challenge enough trying to narrow it down and settle on just one!
Feel free to join in and have a go at the challenge yourself … I look forward to seeing what books you have on your shelves to fit these categories!!
