Book Blogger Memory Tag

Thanks to Erika in Bookventureland for tagging everyone. 

For this tag you have to answer the questions without using Google or Goodreads, or any other source but your own memory. 

Name a book written by an author called Michael

Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. One of my favourite books of all time, and my favourite movie of all time.

Name a book with a dragon on the cover

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The fourth book is in my top 3 favourite of the series. The dragon on the cover is the Hungarian Horntail Harry faces in the first trial of the Tri-Wizard tournament.

Name a book about a character called George

I can’t think of a book I’ve read with a main character called George Cubbins, but Lockwood & Co. has a character who is part of the main trio called George. His first appearance is in the first book, The Screaming Staircase.

Name a book written by an author with the surname Smith

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith. I’ve only read half of this book, but I saw the movie and never got around the reading the second half.

Name a book set in Australia

Skulduggery Pleasant Mortal Coil is only briefly set in Australia, but it was the only book I could think of.

Name a book with the name of a month in the title

The Hunt for Red October by Tom Clancy. I have watched the movie, but haven’t read the book.

Name a book with a knife on the cover

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. They are more like swords, but I couldn’t think of a book I’d read recently with a knife on the cover.

Name a book with the word ‘one’ in the title

One Shot by Lee Child.

Name a book with an eponymous title

Probably the most famous of eponymous titles, The Harry Potter series.

Name a book turned into a movie

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling. There are a two dozen more I could have answered with, but this is the book to movie adaption I’m most looking forward to. The books isn’t a story, so it will be cool to see how they make a trilogy out of less than 100 pages of creature descriptions. If I was choosing the book I’d read most recently that has been turned into a film, it would be Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children–I hope the movie is better than the book.

About Sam Whitehouse

Sam spends most of his time in a different world to other people. If it isn’t one he’s created himself, it’s one he’s reading about. In the rare moments when this isn’t the case, Sam can either be found addicted to a sci-fi or crime show, re-watching Marvel movies, finishing up an assignment for his final year of studying Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam University, or trying to get the dozens of ideas for stories in his head under some kind of control. Sam has lived in the same small village in Yorkshire, surrounded by countryside on all sides ever since he could remember. His childhood saw him get into plenty of scrapes climbing trees and crossing rivers and generally believing he was Indiana Jones. Sam gives credit to his Grandad for him wanting to be a writer, and his bedtime stories for keeping Sam’s imagination stoked. But credit must also go to Steven Spielberg, J K Rowling and Stephen King, who have provided plenty of inspiration over the years, too. Sam writes what he reads, and that is pretty much anything—save romance. Fantasy, thrillers, or crime: once an idea takes root, he can’t stop until the world, characters, and plot are on paper. A huge Marvel fan, Sam one day hopes to pen a screenplay for one of their movies, or direct one, or do anything at all related to one. Until then, he’ll stick to his own fantasy worlds and wait for Marvel’s phone call.
