It’s been a while since I have done a book tag, so I thought now would be a good time for one. Luckily, the wonderful Adrianna from Perpetual Pages posted this video of the Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt Tag 2.0. This updated version is by Maddie and Bee.
Maddie’s Challenges for Bee:
1. Red as the secondary color
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
2. A book you read pre-release
The last arc I recall reading (parts of) is Uprooted by Naomi Novak. I didn’t like it. And, then, I read a finished copy (also didn’t like it).
3. Contains mixed media
Probably Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff qualifies for this answer.
4. Best friends as protagonists
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare is about parabati who fall in love (among other things happening in the story as well). So, that one.
5. A buddy-read book
I don’t normally buddy-read books, because I am very slow as a reader. The last thing I did read with someone else was The Lies of Locke Lamora with the sweetest pal, Annemieke.
6. One I haven’t read
So many. I’ll go with Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye.
7. Typography cover
The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black has really interesting typography. I like that cover, because it is very eerie looking.
8. Author surname beginning with D
All the Susan Dennard books I have: Truthwitch might be the most hyped of them.
9. Second book in a series
Exiled Queen by Cinda Williams Chima is certainly one that comes to mind.
10. POC protagonist
I’m guessing, the heroes in An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir are people of color.
Bee’s Challenges for Maddie:
1. Boy on the cover
Unhinged by A.G. Howard
2. Question in the title
Is Everyone Hanging out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling is a book I passed on to my mom.
3. A sticker you can’t peal off (eg. promotional ones)
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green has this sticker announcing that my copy is a signed copy.
4. A titles that six words or more
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs is quite the mouthful.
5. An alliterative title (where all the words start with the same letter)
6. 2 books where the titles rhyme
Splintered and Cinder are pretty close to a nice rhyme, in my humble opinion.
7. Flowers on the cover
The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead
8. An author who shares your initials
Not on my shelves, but I did once read some Douglas Adams books (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy).
9. A book you want a friend to read
Oh, I don’t know if you have read A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab. You should give it a shot.
10. A book with three or more colors on the cover
Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi is colorful and beautiful. (Oh, I am positively squealing for the companion novel coming out in November, because yes).
