Today, I’m bringing you a challenge wrapped up in a tag and I’m so excited! Why? Because I love a good challenge and I love tags. So win-win! This one is probably gonna be quite difficult, too, as it relies on my very VERY bad ability to recall things off the top of my head. Like, when someone asks you for a book recommendation and all the books you have ever read are somehow miraculously forgotten.
That’s me, y’all, but I’m still going to attempt to do the Book Blogger Memory Challenge Book Tag! The rules are as follows: You have to answer the prompts without using the internet or looking at your bookshelves. Your answers have to all come from memory! Make sure to link to the person who originally tagged you and, once your done, you can tag five other people if you’d like.
I was tagged by the wonderful Tabitha @ Behind the Pages. You should all go check out her answers and her lovely blog. Maybe give her a follow while you’re over there! This tag was originally created by Laura @ Laura’s Book Reviews. Though the link I found doesn’t seem to work anymore, I still want to give credit where credit is due!
Alright, now let’s jump into the questions and see how I do 😄
Name a book written by an author called Michael
The first book that came to mind was The Company of Demons by Michael Jordan. And you would not believe the mental gymnastics my brain went through to get to this one 😂 It started with me thinking of famous Michaels and ended with this. This is a thriller I won from either Goodreads or Bookish First (I think it’s the latter) and have yet to read because I’m terrible. It sounds interesting and it’s set near where I used to live in Ohio! I really need to pick it up at some point.
Name a book with a dragon on the cover
Oh, this was an easy one: Shadow of the Gods by John Gwynne! This book has been all over the bookish community since it was but a twinkle in John Gwynne’s eye and I distinctly remember when this cover was revealed. I took one look at it and knew I was going to read this book. Eventually. But, seriously, how can I resist such an epically cool looking dragon?! And the cover for the second book, though severally lacking in giant, scaled beasts, is just as incredible.
Name a book about a character called George
Look, all I’ve got is Curious George…
I loved these books as a kid. As an adult, reading about George’s antics gives me ✨anxiety✨ I don’t know how the Man in the Yellow Hat takes it! Of course, he shouldn’t have a wild animal in a downtown hotel… but I digress! These are still fun books to read to my youngest.Read More »
