Book Memory Challenge Tag

I found this tag on Brin's Book Blog and decided I wanted to do it, so I'm going to. This tag was created by Sarah Says Read, which is private now but I'm still going to link to because it feels wrong not to.

The challenge answer the question in this image without the Internet or looking at your shelves and then you're supposed to tag people which I'm not going to do because I'm too old for that much work. So, let's try this!

This is the picture with the questions, but I'll also be writing them out for readability's sake.

1. Name a book written by an author called Michael.

Paddington by Michael Bond

I didn't think of any specific one, so we'll just go with the first book because that's logical or something, right? I don't know why that's the first thing to come to mind, but that's what popped into my head.

2. Name a book with a dragon on the cover.

I'm not even sure if I've ever read this, honestly. I think I bought it from a Scholastic book order in like seventh grade or something. No, I must have read it, because I read basically everything I bought, but I can't remember a thing about it. But it definitely has a dragon on the cover!

3. Name a book about a character called George.

(George) by E. L. Konisberg

I thought about Alex Gino's book George, but using it for this question seemed a bit iffy with, you knojw, deadnaming and all that, so I'm going with the nostalgic book instead. There's a lot of books that this author wrote that stick in my head and I remember reading, but this is not one of them. I know I have, but I'm totally blanking. Sounds really weird though, lol.

4. Name a book written by an author with the surname Smith.

I read this book so many times as a kid, and it was the first thing my mind came up with. This is a weird list so far.

5. Name a book set in Australia.

Lucy and Linh by Alice Pung

I actually thought of a more modern one! Lucy and Linh, which I read last year, is set in Sydney.

6. Name a book with the name of a month in the title

Oooooh. This is a hard one. I'm gonna think about this and eat my jello.

Saving June by Hannah Harrington!

That was a tricky one. I was literally sitting there listing all the months in my head and trying to come up with matching book titles.

7. Name a book with a knife on the cover.

I used to read a ton of food mystery books, and it's something I don't do as often, but I still super have a fondness for them. Look how cute that cover is, honestly. It's murder but it's happy murder.

8. Name a book with "one" in the title.

The One Hundred Nights of Hero by Isabel Greenberg

Okay I had to freaking cheat because I blanked and could not think of a single book. Really enjoyed this one.

9. Name a book with an eponymous title.

Coraline by Neil Gaiman

One of my favourite books and movies.

10. Name a book turned into a movie.

Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

I couldn't say Coraline again, so... I was actually just talking about this in a book blogger hop, but that one was about bad adaptations. Oh here's one. Inkheart. No one ever talks about the movie, either as a good adaptation or a bad one. It's kind of interesting.

Okay, that's all the questions! Well, this was an interesting post. Very random. It's interesting what your brain comes up with when faced with such somewhat random questions.

If any of you want to do this, consider yourself tagged by me. If you just want to answer like one, I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
