Book Scavenger Hunt

This was another fun tag that I couldn’t pass up.  I tagged myself, after I saw this on Kristin Kraves Books.  There was something about the scavenger hunt aspect that sounded fun.

I’m not sure if I read a lot of random books, but I actually had an easy time locating most of these on my bookshelves.  I’m not taking individual pictures, so please just take my word. I do own all of these, and they are all on my shelves.  🙂

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


I thought this would be hard, but it jumped out at me pretty fast!

2. Find a classic.

Jane Eyre

My Grandma gave me an antique copy of this a long time ago.  It’s her favorite book.

3. Find a book with a key on it.

This was the hardest one!  This little tiny key was super hard to find!  I actually celebrated.

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


My bookshelves have all sorts of knick knacks on them, but I chose this one because it was my Great Aunt’s.

5. Find the oldest book on your shelf.


I’ve had this book since I was a toddler, when my mom used to read it to me.

6. Find a book with a girl on it.

All the boys I've loved before

I had a few choices with this one too, but I feel like I’ve been talking about Quintana a lot!

7. Find a book that has an animal in it


I chose Raven King because of the beautiful dear.  I think it’s one of my favorite covers ever.

8. Find a book with a male protagonist.


Jasper Dent was a good and entertaining protagonist.  He was the first one that came to mind.

9. Find a book with only words on the cover.

How to Be a Normal Person

I know there’s something else on the cover, but this was the closest I could come.  Most all of my books have SOMETHING on them.

10. Find a book with illustrations in it.


This is my favorite illustrated book.  I wish I could buy these pictures and fill my house with them.  They gorgeous.

11. Find a book with gold lettering.

Walk the Earth

just bought this book, so isn’t that lucky!  I’ve always loved the cover of this book, and I think a part of it is the gold lettering.

12. Find a diary, true or fictional.

Part Time Indian

This is almost like a fictional true diary, right?  It’s both.

13. Find a book written by and author with a common name (like Smith).

Red Rising

I almost went with John Green, but then I thought Brown was more common.

14. Find a book with a close up of something on it.

Rot & Ruin

I could have chosen any of these books.  Every cover is a Zombie closeup.  I chose this one, because it was already in my media library.

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

Clan of the Cave Bear

How bout that!  I took it back to the Cave people!  Oh yeah!

16. Find a hardcover book without a jacket.

Order the Phoenix IMG_20171127_210525_815

You have no idea how much it bothers me that this doesn’t have a cover.  I even emailed the publisher asking if they would mail me one, if I paid for it, but it was a no go.

17. Find a teal/turquoise colored book.

Fault in Our Stars

Isn’t this turquoise?  or Light Blue?  On my shelf it looks turquoise, but the image capture is blow.  Hmmm?

18. Find a book with stars on it.


This cover was what hooked me, and partially it was the stars!

19. Find a non YA book.


I have a whole non-YA shelf, but I went with something that was pretty sexual.  (And one of my favorites!)

I’m not going to tag anyone, since I wasn’t tagged myself.  If it looks fun, enjoy!  Let me know with a pingback!

About Birdie

Don’t look for her in any bar, club, crazy raging party, or anywhere there may be a large gathering of strangers. She’s more likely to be found tucked into the corner of the couch watching one of her favorite shows, or preferably under a comforter with her current novel.

  1. This is such a fun post! I may have to do this one. Did your Order of the Phoenix copy come without a jacket cover? Or get ripped? That would bug me too not to have a jacket for it!


Tell me something!
