Instead of revising I have found new ways of procrastinating! I was watching Lala’s new video (which you can find here) about a book scavenger hunt and I thought why not try it! However just as an added challenge I had to do it with the limited books that I either have with me at uni or are on my Ipad (just to add unnecessary difficulty!). So here is my scavenger hunt to find the next book I should read!
If you’re planning on doing it then it probably is a lot easier in a library which is how it is suggested that you play it but if you have a lot of books or just want a really difficult challenge then there’s nothing stopping you from doing it at home
Step 1 – Find Your Favourite Book
Step 2 – Find a book by an author who has the same first or last name
Step 3 – Go to page 74, on the third line down pick two words from that line and find another book with those words in the title
So my line was:
Being me. I splash water on myself from the sink and rub some of Jared’s
And from that I chose:
Step 4 – Find a book with a similar context
Ok so this could be easier I suppose. For those of you who haven’t read this, it is about a young boy who finds out his father is gay and the book is about him coming to terms with that. So sticking with the LGBTQ+ theme I went with:
Step 5 – Find a diverse book with a similar title
So I accept I probably couldn’t have picked a harder title to find. However I stuck with the idea of _____ vs. _____ and came up with:
Step 6 – Pick one of the main characters in the book, then find another book with the name of the character in the title
So according to Goodreads the main characters names in this are Charles, Andrew and Grace. While I have no books with Charles or Andrew in the title I do have one with the name Grace!
Step 7 – Open that book to a random page and pick a word without looking
Ok I will admit…I did cheat a little during this section. I still picked the word at random however I did have a couple of goes (sorry!). It was just that the words I chose I didn’t have any books for! However after a few goes I did finally get a word that related to a book I had! The word I finally got was…. GIVE!
Step 8 – Find a book with that word in the title
So when I actually found a word that related to a book on my TBR I got…
So there you have it, this was so much fun! Please feel free to take part if you want (I imagine it would be a lot easier to do this in a library). Let me know what book you get if you do take part!
