I Spy with My Little Eye…

… a Book Cover/Title with ____________

I was tagged by Vera (Unfiltered Tales)…oh gosh, too long ago!

As soon as I got the notification from her post I played along, but (as we know by now) my June presence on my blog has been lacking.

Here is how the game works:

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!!

Here is how I played:

I wrote down all the I-Spy challenges, sat in front of my TBR shelves, and set a timer on my phone for 5 minutes.  Once the 5 minutes were over, I went ahead and finished whatever challenges I ran out of time for, pulling from either my TBR or Read shelves.


Here are the I-Spy challenges:

  1. Food
  2. Transportation
  3. Weapon
  4. Animal
  5. Number
  6. Something You Read
  7. Body of Water
  8. Product of Fire
  9. Royalty
  10. Architecture
  11. Clothing Item
  12. Family Member
  13. Time of Day
  14. Music
  15. Paranormal Being
  16. Occupation
  17. Season
  18. Color
  19. Celestial Body
  20. Something That Grows

Here is how I did in 5 minute time constraint:
