The Book Blogger Memory Challenge Book Tag

The Book Blogger Memory Challenge Book Tag

I know it's Top Ten Tuesday today but it's another reading list and I have done one recently which you can find here.

Instead of putting together a new list, I take the opportunity to do a completely different tag.

I was tagged to do the Book Blogger Memory Challenge Book Tag by the lovely Carol @ Reading Ladies in this post.

Thank you for the tag, Carol! I tried to find the originator of the tag but all I got was a name: Lauralovelockbookreviews but the link doesn't lead anywhere. Look here.

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.
Ende, Michael "The Never Ending Story" (GE: Die unendliche Geschichte) - 1979

Name a book with a dragon on the cover.
Sendker, Jan-Philipp "The Far Side of the Night" (The Rising Dragon #3) (GE: Am anderen Ende der Nacht) - 2016

Name a book about a character called George
Steinbeck, John "Of Mice and Men" - 1937

Name a book written by an author with the surname Smith.
Smith, Zadie "White Teeth" - 1999

Name a book set in Australia.
Grenville, Kate "The Secret River" - 2005

Name a book with a month in the title.

Name a book with an eponymous title.
Austen, Jane "Emma" - 1816

Name a book turned into a movie.
Mitchell, Margaret "Gone With the Wind" - 1936

*** Carol discovered that there were only nine books to be named. She was right, of course. I went back through several posts and found that someone left out the third task, they probably couldn't find another book than the one most others had mentioned, "Curious George". ***

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! Thanks. And have fun!


  1. Fun tag! I like the titles you found for each one. :D

    1. Thanks, Lark. I was really lucky, I guess. I thought I might not be able to find anything for some of the challenges, like the dragon or the knife but then remembered I read a "dragon" series about China and there was The Dinner. Lucky, lucky.

  2. Fun tag! If I did it, I would be totally stuck with the dragon!!

    1. I was at first, Lark. But then the dragon series sprung into my head. Same with the knife. I thought about a cookery book first but then remembers The Dinner. It was fun, I hope more people will take the chance and pick this up.

    2. Sorry, I meant Emma, of course!!!

  3. Oh, this is a fun tag! And you did far better than I could have from memory. We both had Michael Ende for the first one, but then the dragon cover stumped me.

    1. I think most of us had the same problem, Christopher. Most of the other ones were really easy, I thought, but since I recently posted the German versions of the Rising Dragon stories, I thought there must be a dragon on there. The book has nothing to do with dragons but is about China.

  4. This tag looks fun, but I've got a terrible memory so I'm not sure how well I would do. LOL. You did great!

    Happy TTT (on a Friday)!

    1. This is exactly what I was thinking, Susan! 😄
      Good job, Marianne.

    2. Thanks, Susan and Lectrice.

      You didn't see how long it took me to come up with all those titles. Good thing I remembered the Rising Dragon series and that they really had a dragon on the cover. And the dinner where I thought they might have had a knife. LOL The rest was pretty easy. I bet you will find that, as well.

  5. Great post, I love these kind of memes. I have read five of the ten books.

    1. That's quite a lot of books we have in common. How sad that the internet played a trick on us again and your comment came out anonymously.
