I saw this book tag/scavenger hunt on Confessions of a Serial Reader and just had to take part immediately!
- Time yourself trying to find each prompt on your shelf.
- Try and beat the time of the person who challenged you.
- Don’t forget to tag your challenger and the original creator.
- Have fun!
Elnade had books for 17 of the 20 questions. She also counted the books that she hadn’t read yet, which was 7.
Let’s see how I do!
The Do I Have That Book Tag
Do you have a book with deckled edges?
I have so many! I love deckled edges. The one that I spotted first was The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket. I’ve read this book many times.
Do you have a book with 3 or more people on the cover?
Yes! We Were Liars. Elnade also chose this book, so it was already top of mind for me. Is that cheating? 🙂 I’ve read this book three times.
Do you have a book based on another fictional story?
To Be Or Not To Be by Ryan North, a book based on Hamlet. This book is one that I have not read yet, but I cannot wait! It’s a A Chooseable-Path Adventure.
Do you have a book with a title 10 letters long?
A Map Of Days by Ransom Riggs. I haven’t read this one yet. I am waiting to reread the other three first before diving into this one.
Do you have a book with a title that starts and ends with the same letter?
Armada by Ernest Cline. I still need to read this one!
Do you have a Mass Market Paperback book?
Pet Sematary by Stephen King- Just picked this one up at Target today! I haven’t read it yet, but plan to before I see the new film!
Do you have a book written by an author using a pen name?
Binary by John Lange, a pen name of Michael Crichton. I have not yet read this one.
Do you have a book with a character’s name in the title?
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz. I ADORE this book!
Do you have a book with 2 maps in it?
Oh lord… I have NO idea. As much as I’d love to find out, I didn’t want to tear my shelves apart to find out.
Do you have a book that was turned into a TV show?
Using a comic collection for this one: The Walking Dead!
Do you have a book written by someone who is originally famous for something else? (celebrity/athlete/politician/tv personality…)
Bird Box by Josh Malerman. Josh is a musician; he’s the singer/songwriter of the rock band, The High Strung.
Do you have a book with a clock on the cover?
The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom. I’ve not yet read this one.
Do you have a poetry book?
Does Gmorning, Gnight!: Little Pep Talks for Me & You by Lin-Manuel Miranda count? If so, then yes!
Do you have a book with an award stamp on it?
The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller. I have not read this one yet.
Do you have a book written by an author with the same initials as you?
I do not. I knew I didn’t have this one, as it was a reading prompt for a challenge I did awhile back and I only have a couple of book with authors with names that start with the letter E. However, I double checked to see if I had any E.M.’s with my name change. Still negative.
Do you have a book of short stories?
Many! Such as Collected Easter Horror Shorts by Kevin J Kennedy. I highly recommend all of his short story collections!
Do you have a book that is between 500-510 pages long?
This prompt took me the longest. I came close! I had a 512, but nothing between 500 and 510.
Do you have a book that was turned into a movie?
Horns by Joe Hill. This movie was quite odd, but so good! Daniel Radcliffe did a wonderful job!
Do you have a graphic novel?
MANY! One example is The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina “The Crucible”. I love this graphic novel! I need to reread it soon.
Do you have a book written by 2 or more authors?
Screechers by Kevin J Kennedy and Christina Bergling. Another I highly recommend if you enjoy horror novellas!
My Scavenger Hunt Results
I had books for 17/20 questions, so Elnade and I tied there! Also taking the inspiration from her, 7 of these books I have yet to read WHICH IS ALSO A TIE!
After getting my blog template ready with all the blank questions, I started the clock. When I typed up my last answer in, I stopped the clock. My time was 19 minutes and 44 sections. Phew! If I had taken the time to look for a book with two maps, it would have easily doubled that time.
This tag was so much fun! I highly recommend taking part if you’re interested! 🙂 I’d love to see your results!
