I love the idea of this book tag: The Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt Tag.
It was actually a tad difficult at some points, and I really had to think about it. I first saw this tag on GoWithFlick’s channel on YouTube, and she had so handily put all the items to be found in a list in her description.
There were some of these that I knew straight away, and could grab them like that *snaps fingers*, but then there were some where I literally had to hunt my entire house. I ended up borrowing a book or two from my sister too, but shhh. Don’t tell her. Anyway, let’s get into it.
1. Find an author’s name or title with the letter Z in it
Maze Runner, by James Dashner
2. Find a classic
Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen
3. Find a book with a key on the cover
The Magician King, by Lev Grossman
4. Find something on your bookshelf that is not a book
Pop vinyl figure of Newt Scamander.
5. Find the oldest book on your shelf
Pilgrim’s Progress. 1826 original print, this copy isn’t that old, but it’s still probably the oldest on my shelf.
