When I read it, I immediately ran over to try it myself before I could have too long to
cheat overthink it.
The trick is that you’re not supposed to look at your shelves or Goodreads or google anything. You have to answer the questions from your memory alone.
1. Name a book written by an author called Michael.
Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton
2. Name a book with a dragon on the cover.
I think Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire has a dragon on it… I think. One of the editions has to.
3. Name a book about a character called George.
It’s not about him per se, but the only George coming to mind is George Wickham from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.
4. Name a book written by an author with the surname Smith.
Um… oh man… nothing. I am coming up completely dry for this one.
5. Name a book set in Australia.
Not only can I not think of a book set in Australia, but I can’t think of any story set in Australia. Either I’m missing something super obvious that’s going to be embarrassing later or there just aren’t a lot of movies or books floating around that take place in Australia. I can think of more stories set in Austria than I can Australia.
6. Name a book with the name of a month in the title.
So I can’t think of anything for a title, but I keep coming back to Little Women, which was written by Louisa May Alcott about the March family so I think I should get partial credit.
7. Name a book with a knife on the cover.
I haven’t read Kiss of the Royal yet, but if I remember right, it has a heart and a knife on the cover? Yes?
8. Name a book with the word ‘one’ in the title.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey
9. Name a book with an eponymous title.
Coraline by Neil Gaiman
10. Name a book turned into a movie.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
So… that was only marginally less embarrassing than I thought it was gonna be. Thanks for the game, Kate and Eden!
