The Book Blogger Memory Challenge Book Tag

Thank you for the tag, Jo! Fun and easy Friday post for the win!

The Rules

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.

The Tag


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)

Jack by Marilynne Robinson


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!

Happy Reading Book Buddies!

“Ah, how good it is to be among people who are reading.”
~Rainer Maria Rilke

“I love the world of words, where life and literature connect.”
~Denise J Hughes

“Reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad ones.”
~Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

“I read because books are a form of transportation, of teaching, and of connection! Books take us to places we’ve never been, they teach us about our world, and they help us to understand human experience.”

    • 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!

  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
