Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt #booktag

I’m doing a lot of reading ahead just now for books which are due to be published early in September. As a result, my blog is looking fairly quiet for the rest of August! I thought it would be a bit of fun to take part in a book tag post or two. I saw this one on The Book Nut blog and thought I’d give it a go. I did change a couple of categories when I couldn’t find a book to fit. So here are some books you can find on my bookshelves.

1. Find an author name or title with a Z in it

2. Find a classic

3. Find a book with a key on it

The Keeper of Lost Things: winner of the Richard & Judy Readers' Award and Sunday Times bestseller by [Hogan, Ruth]

4. Find something on your bookshelf that is not a book

Various CDs including this one.

5. Find the oldest book on your shelf

I think it will be this book of Robert Burns poetry which belonged to my Grandad.

6. Find a book with a woman on it

7. Find a book that has an animal in it

8. Find a book with a male protagonist

9. Find a book with only words on the cover

Cheating slightly as this is an advance proof copy!

10. Find a book with illustrations in it

11. Find a book with gold lettering

12. Find a diary, true or fictional

13. Find a book written by an author with a common surname (like Smith)

The Da Vinci Code: Dan Brown

14. Find a favourite childhood book

Image result for five go down to the sea

15. Find a book on your shelf that takes place in the earliest time period

16. Find a hardcover book without a jacket

17. Find a teal/turquoise coloured book

18. Find a book with stars on it

19. Find a non YA book

Most of my books are not YA (Young Adult) so here’s what I’m currently reading. Or at least what I was reading when I was typing this up.

20. Find a book with a beautiful cover

This is a book that made me want to step right into that stunning setting.

The Path to the Sea: The spectacular new historical women’s fiction holiday read from the bestselling author of One Cornish Summer by [Fenwick, Liz]

So that’s my Scavenger Hunt complete. Why not have a go yourself? I’d love to see what’s on your shelves!
