I found this on my friend’’s Agnes’ blog and I thought it could be a cute post. The rules: answer the questions without searching the Internet or looking at your bookshelves and tag five bloggers.
Indeed, what a challenge for me, with my bad memory! I tried my best.
1. A book written by an author called Michael:
Und Morgen die ganze Welt by Michael Burk. I don’t think it is translated into English; I read it in Slovene.
2. A book with a dragon on the cover:
This couldn't be easier: The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien
3. A book about a character called George:
Does George (aka Georgina, but she hated that name) from Enid Blyton’s The Famous Five series count? Because I can’t think of anyone else. (And I’ve been mulling over it for days. Really. No cheating.)
4. A book written by an author by the surname Smith.
Again, piece of cake: The Vampire Diaries series by L. J. Smith.
5. A book set in Australia:
This is easy, too, as it’s one of my favourites: Eucalyptus by Murray Bail.
6. A book with a name of a month in a title:
This is the question I had to cheat at, at least as far as by searching Goodreads for the authors’ name, although I’ve heard of Paris in April by Allan Dare Pierce before, I have yet to read it, though.
7. A book with a knife in the cover:
The Subtle Knife (His Dark Materials #2) by Philipp Pullman.
8. A book with the word “one” in the title:
One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I haven’t read it yet, but it’s on my to-read list.
9. A book with an eponymous title:
Charlotte Gray by Sebastian Faulks
10. A book turned into a movie:
Well, I could go with five of them, not one. One of the better and fairly recent examples: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
Wow, this was actually easier that I thought, with the exception of number 6. And oops, there are a lot of WW II themed books in my answers. I guess the era & genre are simply a lot on my mind lately.
P.S.: Since I’ve been a terribly unsocial blogger for a while now, I won’t hold a grudge if you just ignore me. ;)
