~ I pretty much randomly picked a book from my shelf for this one and out came Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter.
7. Find a book with a boy on the cover.
~ I had to actually search for one with a boy on the cover but I knew that Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick did.
8. Find a book with only words on it.

9. Find a book with illustrations in it.

10. Find a book with gold lettering.
~ For this one I chose Deception by Grace Cavendish.

~ I’ll have to skip this one as I none of the books I own are diaries – either true or false.
12. Find a book written by someone with a common name (like Smith).

13. Find a book that has a close up of something on it.

~ I wasn’t 100% sure what colour this was on books, so I just chose Teardrop by Lauren Kate.

18. Find a non YA book.
~ For this I picked a middle grade book which was Molly Moon’s Incredible Book of Hypnotism by Georgia Byng.
19. Find the longest book you own.
~ City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare. However when I opened the back to see how many pages it had, I found out that it was a poster-like thing in the back and also a couple of pages of comic strip type of thing! I’m not sure whether it’s in all books or not, but I felt so awesome finding that out!
20. Find the shortest book you own.
~ Eric by Shaun Tan. Nice and simple.
