Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt
Hello! Right now I’m going to do the bookshelf scavenger hunt, which is where you look for books on your bookshelf that answer the instructions. The tag was created by Sarah from TheLibraryOfSarah, and here’s the link to the original video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyjzwQXMyRc
So let’s get started!
- Find an author’s name or title with the letter Z in it.
For this I chose The Maze Runner by James Dashner. I haven’t read this, but I’m planning on reading it!
- Find a classic.
This was actually easy because I have a section of classics on my bookshelf, so I just picked Little Women by Jane Austen. Have not read it because I haven’t read a classic for some reason.
- Find a book with a key on it.
Easy! Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen. I’ve tried to read this, but I got to page 50ish and I was bored. Should I continue it?
- Find something that’s not a book.
On top of my bookshelf, I have a bunch of things I got when I was a baby, but I will pick a pencil sharpener because that’s what I grabbed first.
- Find the oldest book on your bookshelf.
That would have to be Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K Rowling. Mine was one of the first editions, which is neat. It actually was my sister’s copy.
- Find a book with a girl on the cover.
Okay, that’s half of my bookshelf basically. I’ll just pick a random one…. Perfect Escape by Jennifer Brown. I love this book, and it’s definitely one of my favorites.
- Find a book that has an animal in it.
Also an easy one. Let’s go with Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It has Buttercup in it, Prim’s cat.
- Find a book with a male protagonist.
For this, I chose the entire series of 39 Clues. I would say the author, but there are different authors for each book.
- Find a book with only words on it.
I’m choosing Crank by Ellen Hopkins because it is the only book on my bookshelf that just has words on it.
- Find a book with illustrations in it.
I looked for awhile, but I found Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. It has very creepy pictures. I think I’m going to read this book right now. J
- Find a book with gold lettering.
I actually have seven: The entire Harry Potter series by J.K Rowling. This is my second favorite series ever.
- Find a diary (true or fiction).
I only have one, which is The Diary Of A Young Girl by Anne Frank. I have a feeling I’m going to read it sometime soon because of school.
- Find a book written by someone with a common name such as Smith.
For this one, I had to choose The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. John is a very common name. I love this book so much! It made me cry. L
- Find a book that has a close up of something on it.
I have many books with close ups on it, but I’m going to have to choose Cinder by Marissa Meyer. I haven’t read it…. I have not read many of the books that I have! Uh oh….
- Find a book that takes place in the earliest time period.
This question is kind of vague, but mine is Just Ella by Margaret Peterson Haddix. It takes place during medieval times. It was a good book!
- Find a hardcover without a jacket.
I only have one, which is the Bible. xD
- Find a book with stars on it.
Okay, before I get crap about it, I looked at every book I had to see if there were stars on the cover. I don’t have a single book with the picture of stars on them! So, I had to choose The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. It has the word STARS on the cover. The person never said the word stars couldn’t be on the cover. xD
- Find a non-YA book.
Any classic basically, so how about The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. I haven’t read it, of course.
So that is the tag! I tag all of you to do it because it’s very fun and challenging! Have a good day everyone!
