The Book Blogger Memory Challenge #booktag

A bit of fun for the weekend. I saw this booktag challenge over on Write With Andrew‘s bookblog – you can read his post here. The rules of this tag are simple: answer the prompts without using the internet or looking at your bookshelves. Your answers have to all come from memory! Make sure to link to the person who originally tagged you and, once you’re done, you can tag five other people if you’d like.

So, let’s begin this challenge which I fully expect to have some blank answers for! You’ll have to trust me that I’ll type in my answers before I go looking for the book covers to add. If I have reviewed the book I mention, I’ll link to my review.

Name a Book by an Author Called Michael

A Suitable Lie by Michael Malone
This was one of my Top Reads of 2016

Name a Book with a Dragon on the Cover

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
(Being honest, I was just assuming this would have a dragon!)

Name a Book Written by an Author with the Surname Smith

I know I have read loads by Alexander McCall Smith but can only think of 44 Scotland Street.
Turns out the most recent one I’ve read was Chance Developments in 2018.

Name a Book Set in Australia

The Cry by Helen Fitzgerald
I read this back in 2013 so before I started blogging

Name a Book with the Name of a Month in the Title

The Enchanted April – I remembered the title but didn’t remember who wrote it!

Name a Book with a Knife on the Cover

Nope, can’t think of any!

Name a Book with the Word “One” in the Title

One Thousand Stars and You by Isabelle Broom
I loved this book – one of my Top Reads in 2018

Name a Book with an Eponymous Title

Elinor Oliphant is Completely Fine- again couldn’t remember the author!
Read this in 2018, not sure why I don’t have a blog review as I gave it 5 stars on GoodReads.

Name a Book Turned into a Movie

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
I listened to this on Audible and loved it. I really enjoyed the film too.

Well, it turns out I did better than I expected to! If we assume one point for each title and one for each author, I make that 14/18. If you fancy a go, consider yourself tagged and link back to me so I can read your answers.
