The I Spy Book Tag

Book Tag

 

I was tagged by the marvelous Shanah from Bionic Book Worm.  She is not only my book twin, she’s an amazing blogger that you should totally check out. I was thinking I should do more tags on my blog because just reviewing books gets a little boring after awhile.  So let’s shake things up!

THE RULES – Find a book 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! I’m going to do what Shanah did and not stick to the five minute rule.  I’m als going to choose titles that match each prompt rather than covers because, well, all my books are on shelves.

 

 

1 – FOOD, 2 – TRANSPORTATION, 3 – WEAPON, 4 – ANIMAL

 

Food: Beneath the Sugar Sky by Seanan McGuire

Transportation: Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlein (this may be a bit of a stretch, but whatever)

Weapon: City of Blades by Robert Jackson Bennett

Animal: Blackbird by N. D. Gomes

5 – NUMBER, 6 – SOMETHING YOU READ, 7 – BODY OF WATER, 8 – PRODUCT OF FIRE

 

Number: A Thousand Nights by E. K. Johnston

Something you read: The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber

Body of water: The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

Product of fire: The Smoke Thieves by Sally Green

9 – ROYALTY, 10 – ARCHITECTURE, 11 – CLOTHING ITEM, 12 – FAMILY MEMBER

 

Royalty: The Queens of Innis Lear by Tessa Gratton

Architecture: Jade City by Fonda Lee

Clothing item: The Silk Roads by Peter Frankopan (this is the closest I could get!)

Family member: Red Sister by Mark Lawrence

13 – TIME OF DAY, 14 – MUSIC, 15 PARANORMAL BEING, 16 – OCCUPATION

 

Time of day: Queen of the Night by Alexander Chee

Music: Blood Song by Anthony Ryan

Paranormal being: A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

Occupation: Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett

17 – SEASON, 18 – COLOUR, 19 – CELESTIAL BODY, 20 – SOMETHING THAT GROWS

 

Season: The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon (ha!)

Colour: White Rabbit Red Wolf by Tom Pollock

Celestial body: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

Something that grows: The Lie Tree by Francis Hardinge

 

Okay, so this was a lot harder than I thought it would be.  I had to stretch the meaning of the prompt a little for a couple of them. I wont tag anyone because I don’t want anyone to feel pressure to do this, but if you do please send me a link!

  1. This sounds like a really difficult tag! I can’t even think of books immediately for some of the prompts and definitely would not have finished it under 5 minutes. 🙈 I loved your choices for each – some really clever ones there! 😍 Great post, Justine! 😊
