I saw blackcatkai’s post of this forever ago and it sounded so fun (and gave me a good reason to redo my bookshelf). If you’ve never heard of her blog, go check her out!
Also I apologize in advance for my photography skills.
Find a book with the letter Z in its title/author’s name
The Ersatz Elevator – Lemony Snicket
This was surprisingly hard. I only had two books in my whole collection (you’ll see the other later).
Find me a classic!
I had more classics than I expected, but didn’t want to have to choose between them, so I included three.
1984 – George Orwell
This is one of my all-time favorite books!
Lord of the Flies – William Golding
I read this book for school and loved it! One of the only books I finished for a school assignment.
The Road – Cormac McCarthy
See my thoughts on this book here.
Find me the oldest book on your shelves
The Dead Zone – Stephen King (1979)
Here is the other “Z” book. It is from 1979, making it my oldest book.
Find a book with a key on its cover
The Austere Academy – Lemony Snicket
I couldn’t find ANY books with a key on it. But this book has a fork…so that’s ok right?
Find something on your shelves that ISN’T a book
This is one of the coolest things I own. This is a vintage, antique typewriter my grandparents found in their attic. No, it doesn’t really work, but it is still such a great piece.
Find a book with an animal on its cover
Garfield By The Pound -Jim Davis
Fun fact: I love Garfield!
Find a book with a girl on the cover
Stealing Heaven – Elizabeth Scott
If you have never read Elizabeth Scott, I would highly recommend her. I would compare her with Sarah Dessen, for her light hearted YA romance.
Find a book with stars on its cover
Jemima J – Jane Green
Another cheat? Maybe, but I couldn’t find any books with stars, so if you looked at the “I’s” you will see star-like shapes.
Find a book with golden letters
A light in the attic – Shel Silverstein
Sure maybe I lost this dust jacket, but it still has gold letters. Also Shel Silverstein’s work is great!
And that’s it! I had a ton of fun with this! If anyone else wants to do this, go right ahead, you’ll have a good time looking through all your books!
