The Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt Tag

So on Youtube the other day, polandbananasBOOKS (she's a great book Youtuber, you should check her out) posted this video:

It looks like fun! Now I don't make Youtube videos, so I thought I'd write a little post about it. If you can't tell from the name of the tag, the aim is to find a book on your bookshelf that fits each of the criteria. So lets give it a go!

1. Find a book where the title or the authors name contains a letter 'Z'.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

2. Find a classic.
Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers - this would be considered a classic, right?

3. Find a book with a key on it.
NADA - I couldn't find anything with a key on it :(

4. Find something that's not a book.
Oh lots of stuff - photos, candles, moneybox, signature bear, DVDs, sporting trophies, etc etc 

5. Find the oldest book on your shelf.
Time Stops for No Mouse by Michael Hoeye

6. Find a book with a girl on the cover on it.
The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross; Wither by Lauren Destefano; Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon; Slide by Jill Hathaway; Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza...nailed that one :D

7. Find a book with an animal on it.
Water for Elephants by Sara's got an elephant in the background, so it counts

8. Find a book with a male protagonist.
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

9. Find a book with only words on it. 
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle 

10. Find a book with illustrations in it.

12. Find a diary (truth or fictional).

14. Find a book that has a close up of something on it.
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer (close up of hands with an apple); L.A. Candy by Lauren Conrad (close up of candy); Cinder by Marissa Meyer (close up of a foot) - just to name a few

15. Find the book on your shelf that takes place during the earliest time period. 
The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory (1500s?)

16. Find a hardcover book without a jacket.
Luuurve is a many trousered thing... by Louise Rennison

17. Find a teal/turquoise coloured book.

18. Find a book with stars on it.

19. Find a non-YA book.

Annnnd that's the end of the tag. I WAS SO CLOSE - IF ONLY I HAD A BOOK WITH A KEY ON IT! Oh well, 18 out of 19 ain't bad either. 

Think you can defeat the Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt Tag - have a go for yourself!
