Thank you to the lovely Ravenclaw Book Club for tagging me! Their blog is amazing, you should definitely head over there and have a little nosey at what they’re up to.
Find a book with the letter ‘Z’ in the title or author’s name
This was slim pickings, to be honest! Pretty much the only book that fit the bill for this was the Ersatz Elevator by Lemony Snicket. Picking this lovely little three-in-one volume up reminded me that I definitely need to get round to re-reading these books before the Netflix series comes out!
Find a classic
As many of you will already know, I’m not a particularly big fan of the classics unless they happen to be written for children…sorry, not sorry. This is pretty much the only ‘adult classic’ that I have on my shelf, and I must confess that I haven’t yet read it. Please feel free to moan at me in the comments, I probably deserve it!
Find the oldest book on your shelves
This treasury of original Disney fairy tales was my Dad’s before being given to me at the age of 10 or 11. There’s chunks missing from the spine (not my doing, I would never harm a book, just so we’re clear) and the cover is in pretty bad shape, but it’s probably the most special book I own.
Find a book with a key on its cover
Nada. Zilch. Nothing!
Find something on your shelves that isn’t a book
Because everyone needs pink gin to go with their Jodi Picoult collection, amiright?
Find a book with an animal on the cover
I had a few choices for this one, but I adore these old school Narnia covers!
Find a book with a girl on the cover
Had to crowbar the Shadowhunters books in somewhere, didn’t I now? I do love the covers for The Infernal Devices books though, they’re so swirly and pretty. Technical terms, I think you’ll agree.
Find a non-YA book
I actually read quite a few books that aren’t YA (as you can see from my gin/Jodi Picoult combo) and novels by British crime author Martina Cole are a guilty holiday pleasure of mine. Easy on the mind, heavy on the drama.
Find a book with stars on the cover
There are stars on this cover, I promise.
Find a book with golden letters
This was actually super hard to take a photo of because it’s so damn heavy, but it’s a gorgeous, interesting book. If you’re a Potterhead and you don’t already own this book, I absolutely implore you to put this on your birthday/Christmas/Veruca Salt ‘I want it NOW’ list immediately.
I hope you enjoyed your impromptu tour around my shelves!
I’m not going to tag anyone in particular this time because I am currently in tag city and there will be a few more to come this week. But as always, if you fancy giving it a bash please do! I’d love to see your answers. 🙂
