I’ve wanted to do this tag ever since Naz at Read Diverse Books posted it on his blog way back in 2016. (Last year seems so far away.) I consider myself tagged by him.
It’s said that the tag was created by booktuber The Library of Sarah; however, I couldn’t find the original tag video. I instead linked to her YouTube channel.
This tag was fun and a little challenging. It was sometimes difficult to find the books on my shelves (good thing I catalog them, which made this a bit easier). Later, when I was done taking pictures, I realized that other bloggers and vloggers included additional categories in their scavenger hunt posts, so I included them in mine too. I didn’t bother taking pics for them, though, because by then I was lazy. But anyway, let’s scavenge for books.
Find a book with the letter “Z” in its title or the author’s name.
Zana, #1 by Jean Barker, illus. by Joey Granger
Zana is one of the many comic books I picked up at the Small Press Expo last year. I haven’t yet read it, but the characters on the cover make me think it will be exciting.
Here’s a blurb on what it is about: “In a future South Africa in which apartheid never ended, the appearance of an angry ancestral spirit sets two village girls on the path to a dangerous destiny.” (Emet Comics)
