I Spy Book Challenge

I was recently tagged for the I Spy Book Challenge (originally created by Kristin @Kristin Kraves Books) by the ever amazing Lily @Sprinkles of Dreams. Despite not looking easy at all, it does look like fun! So, here we go!!


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!

Just fyi: There is no way I could have done this in 5 minutes! I really tried, but I needed a bit more than 10 and think that’s fairly decent. My shelf is an utter mess, so I am even a little proud haha

Food | Transportation | Weapon | Animal | Number

Something You Read | Body of Water | Product of Fire | Royalty | Architecture

Clothing Item | Family Member | Time of Day | Music | Paranormal Being

I cannot believe this wasn’t planned, but I just subconsciously did an entire row solely with movie/TV tie-ins and I am both stunned and proud of myself.

Occupation | Season | Color | Celestial Body | Something That Grows


Malanie | Kay Wisteria | Andie | Marie

And I tag whoever wants to do this tag! It’s a lot of fun and a real challenge if you really want to make it in time.

Did you agree with my choices? Should I have explained them or does an image really say more than a thousand words? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. Ohh, this seems like a fun tag for sure. Was it hard to come up with some of the covers for the different prompts. I imagine finding a book with a celestial body could be quite challenging (depending on how you take that prompt I suppose). Also you featured some of my favourite books here as well; I really loved The Girl From Everywhere, and Morgan Matson is one of my favourite YA contemporary authors. Honestly anything she writes is pure gold in my opinion.
    Great post, and great picks for all these prompts as well. 🙂 ❤

    • It wasn’t that easy sometimes, which is why I said there was no way I could have done it in 5 minutes. Another problem of mine was that my books are mostly stacked in double rows, so I didn’t even have a good look at my entire collection. Some prompts I saw and immediately had a book in mind, for others I struggled a bit more. I figured since it’s called The Martian, the dust on the cover is probably Mars? But I bit myself for having used Midnight Sun already when it came to that one later haha
      Morgan Matson is one of my faves as well! I have all her books and loved reading them. Marie and I are going to do a buddy read for Save the Date soon 😀 I am super excited.
      Thaaank you!

      • Oh I doubt I would have been able to do this in five minutes either. I can’t remember half the covers of the books I own so I’d be in the same boat trying to find answers for all these prompts. 🙂
        I hope you (and Marie) love Save the Date. I finished it myself earlier last month and really loved it. It’s probably my second favourite of Morgan Matson’s books.
        That’s all right! 😀 ❤

  2. This is such a fun challenge – I will probably take half an hour at least to do this haha but thank you very much for the tag, I still can’t wait, it sounds like a lot of fun 😛
    I kind of love that you have two Morgan Matson books here 😛 aand The Girl From Everywhere, seeing that one reminds me that I wanted to ask you, do you plan on reading her new book releasing… this september I think, or this fall at least haha, I think it’s called Muse of Fire, something like that? haha. 🙂

    • Yeah, I applaud anyone who can actually do it in 5 minutes, because that seems impossible to me. And I have my books double stacked, so I couldn’t even see half of them, which didn’t really help haha
      I … didn’t know about that new book? I feel like I should probably read A Ship Beyond Time before jumping into anything new.

    • Thanks! I had to check back but I think I have read all the books I have used in this tag except for The Shape of Water, so yeah, I liked The Princess Saves Herself in This One. I enjoy some poetry every now and then 🙂

  3. I love seeing what people choose as their answers for this tag! I recently read Words in Deep Blue (it was quite lovely) and I have yet to check out Shape of Water. 😉 Excellent choices!

    • I’ve watched the movie for Shape of Water, so I really wanted to take some time until I read the book and now it’s just sitting on my shelf haha but it looks beautiful. And it has illustrations inside.
