Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt


Hi. Welcome back. My name is Michelle and
you’re watching Michellislife. I was tagged a while ago, I was tagged by
Tiny Book Dragon and a link her channel down below and the original video as
well. This is the Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt. So basically there are a ton of… a ton of
different things that you’re supposed to find on your shelves. And we’ll just get
started. If you see me looking down it’s because I’m looking at my phone to see
what the next thing is on the scavenger hunt. The first thing is: find a classic. That’s
easy, if you save my recent haul video so I’ll go get one of those. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens! Next is: find a book with a
key on it. I don’t know… oh haha. Another classic. The
Secret Garden. Secret Garden has a key on it. What what! Find something on yourself that is
not a book. So pretty easy. I recently got this little fella Sailor Moon. I traded in my books got
ten dollars for them but at least I was able to afford my little Sailor Moon. Alright, the next is: find the oldest book
on your shelf. I’m gonna go with oldest meaning the
book i’ve had the longest not oldest as far as publication date goes, and that is
Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. Yes, there’s a name on it that’s not mine. The pages are yellowed and the name is a friend I lent it to while she was having some difficulties. So anyway, this is probably the oldest book. I have had it since I was like 15 or 16. So yeah. Find a book with a girl on the
cover. Weird Girl and What’s His Name. That
counts. Find a cover with an animal on it. Black Beauty…Horses… Counts. Those classics are really helping me
today. Find a book with a male protagonist. That one’s a little more difficult. More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera. Male protagonist. Find a book with only words on it. (laughs) Yes! A book with only words on it! What, What! Word Cloud edition! I don’t know…I
don’t think I’d be able to complete this challenge without all my classics that I got.
So i guess i’m glad I held off on making this for a while. Find a book with illustrations on it. Yeah! (squeals) Alice in Wonderland. Plenty of
illustrations and this book is also just (sighs) gorgeous. Find a book with gold lettering. In The
Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters has gold lettering. Find a diary true or fictional. I don’t know if it
means book diary but I’ve got this diary from college and I have my current diary
that I haven’t written in for a couple of months now. Find a book written by
someone with a common name such as Brown or Smith. I don’t think I have one but I’m gonna
go with Richard Matheson. It’s a really poor example but I feel like Matheson it isn’t
that weird. Right? Next one is: Find a book with a close up of something on it. What the eff’ does that mean? I’m gonna go with
Lexicon by Max Barry. I actually haven’t read this yet, but it’s a close-up of an
eye. Find a book on your shelf that takes place in the earliest time period. I’m going to go with
the art of war because it talks about all different dynasty eras and different
time periods because that counts. Man, this tag is letting you see all the books
that you don’t normally get to see on my shelves. Find a hardcover book without a
jacket. That would be my edition of The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald Yes, I still have the one dollar sticker
on it too. But I like it, not the sticker, but that it doesn’t have a
jacket. It just has a nice binding. You know? Why are you focusing today? (yelling at camera) Whatever, I can’t get a, can’t get a good
image of the spine because my hands are too white. But it’s it’s a nice edition.
Find a teal or turquoise colored book. I just held one up but I’ll find another.
Teal is I, Tituba Black Witch of Salem. Its literary fiction that is
more…I think it’s more magical realism, than it is like witch-craft-ery. That’s what I remember from it anyway. It’s
been like seven years, no, six years now. It’s been a while. Alright, we only have a couple more. Find a
book with stars on it. Really? Again classics are here to save the day.
Peter Pan by Jay M. Bary has stars and moons and all the pretty things. Last but not
least is: find a book that is not YA. Which is actually the easiest
thing on this list. We’re going to go with The Luminaries by
Eleanor Catton. Yeah, this is a chunker, but this one is so much prettier
than…. oh there’s pictures! Oh look at that map! Yeah! Anyway, um I love this edition so
much more than the hardcover. I think the blue is so pretty and that flop factor though! Anyway, that’s it for this book tag. I would like to see hmm… Who am I going to tag? I would like to
see Sylwia do this tag, as well as a Merrel over at A Blackbird’s Books. I
think I’ve tagged you twice now, so I’m sorry if you don’t want to do it, you don’t have to. And
April Sarah. I would like to see you do this tag as well. So that’s it. Yeah…basically my beautiful classics
saved the day. So I’m glad I have. Anyway, thank you
all so much for watching, liking subscribing, commenting and all that jazz. I’ll see you guys next time. Bye
