The Book Blogger Memory Challenge Book Tag
I was tagged to do the Book Blogger Memory Challenge Book Tag by Jo @ Jo Linsdell in this post.
Thank you for the tag, Jo! Fun and easy Friday post for the win!
Answer the prompts without using the internet or looking at your bookshelves. Your answers have to come from MEMORY! Make sure to link to the person who originally tagged you and tag five other people if you’d like.
Name a book by an author named Michael.
The first book that comes to mind is The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje. I can recall this title, but I can’t pronounce the last name and have always thought of the author as Michael O-something.
Name a book with a dragon on the cover.
I just don’t read books about dragons. But how about a dinosaur on the cover? Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. This would also work for #1 (a book written by Michael)
Name a book written by an author with the surname Smith.
I immediately thought of the classic, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith.
Name a book set in Australia.
I loved The Dry by Jane Harper.
Name a book with a month in the title.
The first one that comes to mind is a classic, The Enchanted April by Elizabeth von Arnim
Name a book with a knife on the cover.
Oh dear! If I see a knife on the cover, it’s an automatic skip for me because I can’t read thrillers, crime fiction, or true crime. So, I’m cheating here and using a sword! Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis.
Name a book with the word “One” in the title.
This is easy! One-In-A-Million Boy by Monica Wood.
Name a book with an eponymous title.
Jack by Marilynne Robinson. (in the Gilead series)
Name a book turned into a movie.
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, The Hunger Games, The Book Thief, Little Women, News of the World, A Man Called Ove (to name a few!)
***There are only 9 prompts (I double counted to make sure!) and I like to see an even 10, so I’m adding one!***
Name a book with “Mountains” in the title.
The Mountains Sing by Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai
Although I remembered the title, I did have to look up the spelling of the author’s name!
[EDITED to add that Marianne from Let’s Read went on an investigative journey and found an older post that had the 10th prompt., #10 is “Name a book that has a main character named George.” I first thought of “Curious George,” but upon further consideration I remembered Washington: A Life by Ron Chernow. If you decide to do this tag and want to use the original 10 prompts, you now have the official list!]
I’m tagging anyone who reads this post and would like to do the Book Blogger Memory Challenge!
If you do the tag, please link to my post so that I can comment on yours!

Happy Reading Book Buddies!

Haha yes I did think of my answer while reading yours!
I thought of Jurassic Park for number one (which I’ve never read)!
I thought of it for #1 as well but then I needed a dragon I.e. dinosaur for #2! I had to think hard to remember another Michael! 😂 BTW…Jurassic Park is a scary and tense book!
I believe it! I saw just a little of the movie when I was five or six and my siblings were watching. I’ve never wished to complete that experience;)
I chose not to see the movie because the book scared me! 😂 I’m sure the movie I made in my head was worse than the movie!
Fun tag! I would call him Michael O-something too!
I’m an epic fail here, Carol. Great post though!❤📚
Thanks Sandy! 🙌
Couldn’t resist trying to think of my own answers as I saw the questions. Nothing came to mind at all for the dragon or knife questions. I suppose of yiu read a lot of fantasy or crime they would be easy
I bluffed my way through those two!
Glad you did the tag. You did great with your answers.
Just this morning I was thinking that I haven’t done a book tag in ages!!!
Love your answers and this does seem quick and fun, I’ll try to get to it tomorrow!
Have fun! 🙌
It is on-DARt-she (the t is not silent but is barely heart and rolls into the final syllable). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mypf-_qQxr4
Thanks! I’ll practice! 🙌
on-DARt-she (but the T is almost silent).
What a lovely challenge. I’m looking forward to doing this. I might even have some in common with you.
Thanks for this, Carol.
Thanks Marianne! 🙌
I have read “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn” and some books by Michael Ondaatje but I did find ten different books from yours.
I also found the tenth point that was dropped somewhere along the line.
You will find my list here.
Oh you found 10?! I admire your persistence! I’ll check out your post as soon as I’m at my laptop (I can’t comment through my iPad on blogspot sites for some reason)
I like playing detective. LOL But I also liked your tenth suggestion but had done mountains and hills in my last TTT.
Maybe that’s why mountains came to my mind! 😂
[…] yesterday we saw this fun tag over at Carol and The Reading Ladies‘ gorgeous blog and thought we’d hop along for a bit of fun. But then we realized we […]
Lovely answers! Thanks for playing along and for the shoutout!
Hi Carol! I quickly managed to do mine as well! Had a lot of fun.
Have a great week ahead!
Yay! It’s a fun easy one! I looked back a couple of tags and didn’t see an original creator.
I saw this fun challenge on Mareli’s site and have to play along! A few answers came to me immediately, a couple I’m still thinking about! But I’ll post mine (and link to you both) on Tuesday. Thanks for the fun idea.
Terrie @ Bookshelf Journeys
It’s fun and easy! enjoy! I’ll look forward to your answers!
What a great tag, Carol. One in a Million Boy is a great choice and underrated in my opinion. I have such a terrible memory that although I could answer all these, I couldn’t do it without cheating.
Thanks Carla! One in a Million Boy is a memorable story!
