I Spy Book Challenge!

I was browsing YouTube this morning and I stumbled upon the ‘I Spy Book Challenge’. I really liked it so I attempted to do it too! It was originally created by BooksandLala! It works like a scavenger hunt of your bookshelves. There were 20 categories and I found a book for 18 of them! Not bad, eh?


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!!

1. food


I chose Geekerella by Ashley Poston for the food category because of the vegan food truck with the pumpkin on it. As I’m already using Winter by Marissa Meyer for another category, this was best fitting.

2. transportation


On the cover Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz there’s a red truck!

3. weapon


The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan was perfect for this, because the title is a weapon and the hammer is also on the cover!

4. animal


I chose The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon. There is a dog on the cover as well as on in the title.

5. number


This is Where it Ends by Marieke Nijkamp might not seem as a logical choice, but I own the Dutch edition, which is titled 54 Minuten (54 minutes) and 54 is a number.

6. something you read


The cover of Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley is full off books!

7. body of water


On my copy of Ice Princess by Camilla Läckberg there is a woman under water.

8. product of fire


Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins is full of flames. It’s even the title of my Dutch edition.

9. royalty


I could have gone with quite a few other books for this category, but I decided to go with The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater! There’s King in the title so it fit.

10. architecture


This was a hard category in my opinion, but I ended up choosing Paper Towns by John Green, because of the word towns. Towns are full of architecture, right?

11. item clothing


For this I picked Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, which has a red cape on the cover. Capes are cool.

12. family member

I didn’t find anything sadly.

13. time of day


I chose the night sky on the cover of We Are The Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson for this one. It might be a stretch, but I didn’t have any books with a time of day in the title.

14. music

I didn’t find anything for the music category either.

15. paranormal being


This might be another stretch, but I’m owning it. The people on the cover of Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier can travel through time. So that makes them paranormal.

16. occupation


#Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso has a CEO on the cover.

17. season


Winter by Marissa Meyer fits with the winter season. There isn’t much more to say about it.

18. colour


I picked Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier for this category, because it’s blue and it’s named after a colour.

19. celestial body


I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson has sun in the title!

20. something that grows


Lastly, there are flowers on the cover of Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater and they grow.


That’s all for this post. I hope you enjoyed it! If you try this challenge as well, let me know how you did! Thanks for reading! See you next time!
