I was hopping around the blogoshpere looking for inspiration to strike me outta somewhere to write a post. Okay I have been saying that for the past two weeks and nothing worked. Until, yes there is an until. Until I saw this tag from Kristina of Books and Dachshunds called I Spy Book.

The rules are really simple and it seems like fun. It has been a while since I did any tags so why not do one for the heck of it, right?

Rules for the I Spy book Tag:

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!

I will be trying to use books that are on my read, reviewed or to be read shelves.Here we go.

1. Food

The Vegetarian by Han Kang

Why haven’t I written a review for this book yet?

2. Transportation

Fast Cars & Fidgety Feet by Rishad Saam Mehta

3. Weapon

Raakshas – India’s No.1 Serial Killer by Piyush Jha

This is the only question I commented with a related book cover, I think.

I DID IT. And it took a lot more than few minutes. Thanks to Goodreads, otherwise I wouldn’t know where to start even. If you think this definitely was an interesting tag, try these as well. You may like them.


Have you done this tag? If you are interested consider yourself tagged. And in case you find any other cool tags, let me know I might even do it.

  1. Kristina

    it’s quite harder than it looks, eh ? xD i think you still did pretty well !

    Wow.. mummy’s little angel’s cover is a tad bit terrifying, though i’d so read it – makes it even more appealing !
