The Incredible Spy Norrie @ Reading Under the Blankie invited me to take part in this fun challenge. I’m always up for a challenge. So what is this particular one about?
The challenge: Find a book that contains (either on the cover or in the title) an example for each category. You must have a separate book for all 20, get as creative as you want and do it within five minutes!!
Side note: I will use my GoodReads’ list of books, which I have read or want to read, displayed a grid to help me with this challenge. Let’s see how quickly it goes…
I enjoy fairy tale re-tellings and the Fairest from An Unfortunate Fairy Tale Series was a highly enjoyable read. I recommend the series if you love fairy tales. 🙂 Fairest by Chanda Hahn
I can not wait to get my hands on this book. Small Spaces by Katherine Arden is a highly anticipated book.
Well I’m sticking with this one as Thor used his hammer as a weapon. 🙂 Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman (my review).
The Horse Whisperer by Nicholas Evans. Absolutely loved this book when it was released (the movie was ok but it’s the book that stole my heart).
Thirteen by Kelley Armstrong – I read her entire Otherword series as well as a few other of her books. Witches, werewolves, necromancers, and mafia.. what else to say. 🙂
SOMETHING YOU READ
Talon by Julie Kagawa. Kagawa is such an amazing author and I still want to read some of her books as I haven’t read all of them yet. I love dragons and this book cover is just…. ❤
BODY OF WATER
I bought this audiobook recently and can not wait to start listening to it (hopefully sometime this week). Life of Pi by Yann Martel
PRODUCT OF FIRE
Another of Katherine Arden‘s highly anticipated releases. I can not wait to read The Winter of the Witch. I really, really can not wait. Can I somehow get a copy please… ehm, like right now please??? Let’s appreciate how beautiful this cover is so I can talk about it for a tiny bit longer… 😀
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard I read it, it was ok. Moving on…
Kin by Snorri Kristjansson – a book about highly dysfunctional family dynamics plus a few murders now and again happening within this ‘lovely’ family. Quite a surprising fun read (my review).
I absolutely adored this book whilst growing up. Alexandre Dumas and The Three Musketeers.
Another of Kagawa’s books that I really enjoyed reading. This one is about The Iron Fey. Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa.
Side note: if you enjoyed The Cruel Prince by Holly Black, I highly recommend this series as well. 🙂
TIME OF DAY
My favourite Pratchett’s book. I know it’s not ‘quite’ the time of day but I just had to sneak it in here… Mort by Terry Pratchett
The emotional contemporary novel A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews (my review)
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. The paranormal being in this case is the dragon, Smaug, not Bilbo – because Bilbo is a legit hobbit, just saying…
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. This book helps me dream every time I read it… ❤
Another of Pratchett’s wonderful creations. This is especially enjoyable on a cold frosty winter day. Wintersmith by Terry Pratchett
Norrie – you did extremely well with King, I was very impressed. 🙂 I was tempted to play along with Pratchett but did not dare… he he. Still, I had to use his third book here… purely because it is a pretty awesome book and because I’ll be re-reading it soon with this lovely bunch. Join us if you fancy joining a Terry Pratchett Read-a-thon!! 🙂
The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett
Because that’s my favourite book of all time. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery I particularly love this quote of his: “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.“
SOMETHING THAT GROWS
This book… I completely lost sense of time whilst reading it. Its writing is truly magical. It’s a wonderful story of five sisters that discover a portal to a mysterious forest (just to double check, something is growing there in the background, right?) If you like Arden’s writing, I have a feeling you may enjoy this beautiful book as well. Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier

Fancy giving it a go? And also everyone else who feels like it. It’s a lot of fun, promise!
I did not beat the 5 minute time though… I guess ‘indecision’ is my middle name, he he. It was a lot of fun, thanks Norrie for thinking of me. 🙂
Now over to you:
What book cover would you choose for CELESTIAL BODY? Fancy sharing it with me? 🙂 Thanks.
