I Spy Book Challenge

Fanda told me about this challenge (originally created by Booktuber BooksandLala) and it looks so fun that it didn’t take me long to decide to join in.

Here are the rules:

Find a book on your bookshelves 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!! (or longer if you have way too many books on way too many overcrowded shelves!)

  1. We use the same book for 2 and 3 😛
    Love the cover of 13..
    And 11 is a very clever choice! 😉
    Of all, 12 is the most interesting (the book, not the answer). Have you read it?


    1. Hehe thank you! I wanted to use “House of Silk” for no 11 but then silk is a material not an item of clothing, and then The Plays of Oscar Wilde (the woman on the cover wears a headpiece and a big fluffy scarf, very glamour), but then I suddenly remembered Madame Defarge and her knittings 😀
      I’ve only read a few first pages of book no. 12, the book is intended for kids so it’s very readable.
