The Scavenger Hunt Challenge

Hi all!

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve done a tag and when I saw this one over at the lovely Fadwa @ Word Wonders‘ blog, I just knew I had to do it!

This is such a cool book tag, and it was a hard one too! It took me like over an hour to find books to match the steps but I did it in the end!

Let’s see what book I end up with!

STEP ONE: FIND YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK

24706448

One of my favourite book’s is Prince’s Gambit by C.S. Pacat! Originally I was going to chose Pride and Prejudice, but I decided to go with something a little different.

STEP TWO: FIND A BOOK WITH A MAIN CHARACTER WHO HAS THE SAME FIRST NAME OR LAST NAME AS THE AUTHOR IN #1

C.S. Pacat’s first name is Catherine so I picked Catherine Earnshaw from Wuthering Heights!

STEP THREE: OPEN THE BOOK TO PG. 74, LINE 3. PICK 2 WORDS AND FIND ANOTHER BOOK WITH THOSE 2 WORDS IN THE TITLE

It took me like 15 minutes to find my copy of Wuthering Heights but eventually I did. The line on page 74 is: “Oh, such a grand bairn,” she panted out.

Yeah, that’s pretty hard. I don’t even want to admit how long it took me to find a book from two words of this line — suffice to say it was a while. Eventually I found She’s Out by Lynda La Plante and is about a group of female diamond thieves which honestly sounds so cool!

STEP FOUR: ONCE YOU’VE FOUND THAT BOOK, FIND A BOOK WITH SIMILAR CONTEXT

Again, this was such a hard find! I eventually came across Diamonds Aren’t Forever by Connie Shelton after constantly googling “female diamond thieves” 😂.

STEP FIVE: UPON FINDING THAT BOOK, FIND A DIVERSE BOOK WITH A SIMILAR TITLE

Ok, this one was actually easy! I immediately thought of Any Old Diamonds by KJ Charles which I have read and adored back in January! It’s now my favourite KJ Charles novel, just beating out A Seditious Affair.

It’s an m/m romance about a young Duke’s son who hires a criminal to help steal his father’s jewels to get revenge against him. It’s freaking awesome and I encourage everyone to read it!

STEP SIX: PICK A MAIN CHARACTER’S NAME FROM THAT BOOK AND FIND ANOTHER BOOK THAT HAS THAT NAME IN THE TITLE

The main character in Any Old Diamonds is Alexander Pyne-ffoulkes (which is like the coolest name ever) and I straight away thought of the book Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow.

STEP SEVEN: OPEN THAT BOOK TO ANY PAGE AND PICK A WORD WITHOUT LOOKING

Ok, this step took me almost as long as finding a book from like seven words. I originally opened the book and found the word “villainous” but I don’t have any books on my TBR with that word. So I did it again and found “arrived”. Again, no book. Then I found “survive”. Again, no book. Then “before” — nope. And then finally “people”! Yes, I finally have a book on my TBR with the word “people” in it and its … (drum roll) … 

STEP EIGHT: GO TO YOUR FAVOURITE SECTION & FIND THE FIRST BOOK YOU SEE THAT HAS YOUR WORD IN THE TITLE

Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race by Reni Eddo-Lodge!

33606119

STEPS NINE & TEN: YOU HAVE FOUND YOUR BOOKS, BUY/CHECKOUT/READ YOUR BOOK!

Omg, I actually just returned this book to the library unread! I didn’t get a chance to read it during the time I had borrowed it and when I went to renew it, someone had requested it and so I had to return it or risk a fine 😓. BUT, I will definitely be borrowing it sometime soon!
