Welcome to the first collaborative post on this blog – the mini scavenger hunt challenge! I (Emma) wrote 5 questions and we both scrounged our bookshelves to find the books to fit all the questions. To make it doubly challenging we timed each other to see who could do it the quickest!
It was a lot of fun and we can’t wait to share the books we each chose so let’s get to it!
A BOOK WITH ‘E’ OR ‘S’ IN THE TITLE.
Sarah – The School of Good and Evil by Soman Chainani
Emma – The Exact Opposite of Okay by Laura Steven
A BOOK THAT MAKES US THINK OF EACH OTHER AND WHY?
Sarah – Pages & Co: Tilly and the Bookwanderers by Anna James
Emma has lots of books and when I’m looking at her shelves, I feel like I’m in a bookshop!
Emma – A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard
Similarly to Rhys, Sarah is always educating her Hearing friends to UK Deaf Culture and BSL. Also, just switch out Rhys for Sarah and the experiences would be fairly similar.
A NEW FAVOURITE BOOK
Sarah – Mary Poppins by PL Travers
Emma – Tangleweed and Brine by Dierdre Sullivan
A BOOK WE’VE NOT YET READ?
Sarah – Fairest of All: A Tale of the Wicked Queen by Serena Valentino
Emma – The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli
A NEW BOOK
Sarah – Heartstopper by Alice Oseman
Emma – Shadowscent: The Darkest Bloom by P.M Freestone
All of our books together:
Sarah – 2 minutes 10 seconds
Emma – 1 minute 57 seconds
Oh they were so close!
Like we said, this was such a fun challenge so we’ll have to try it again later on in the year to see if we can best these times! Our library of books will also be a bit bigger by then so there will be more books to choose from!
Thank you for joining us on this scavenger hunt and have a brazzle dazzle day!
