Welcome back to Wondering Wednesdays. Today is Puzzle Day! (I can’t believe this is actually a celebrated holiday, it really is, I love puzzels though so yaay!)
This weeks questions will be have a little riddle in there as well as some questions about books of course.
Looking forward to seeing some answers from people this week and reading your posts. As always let me know what you think and a full explanation of #WonderingWednesdays can be found here.
This weeks questions:
- Do you like to do puzzles? If so, what kind of puzzles are your favourite?
- What is the most difficult book you’ve ever read or tried to read?
- Try to solve this riddle:
“This thing all things devours;
Birds, beasts, trees, flowers;
Gnaws iron, bites steel;
Grinds hard stones to meal;
Slays king, ruins town,
And beats mountains down.”
This is a famous riddle and some of you might recognise it from a certain book 😉
- What is the most puzzling book you’ve ever read, for example, with a massive plot twist you didn’t see coming or you just didn’t understand.
- Have you got any fun or favourite riddles or puzzles for me to solve?
Hope you enjoy these questions and have fun answering them, below are my answers:
1. I love puzzling, from 1000 piece jigsaw puzzles (my favourite are Disney ones :$) to Sudokus. I love clearing my mind and just focusing on solving things that can be solves. The picture actually shows my favourite jigsaw puzzle 🙂
2. I feel quite embarrassed saying this but I really struggled with the Great Gatsby. I never really had to read classic books in secondary school so I never learned to read in ‘old’ language. I know it’s not proper old language but some of the words in there I really struggled with. I’m gonna give it another shot when I’m back in Holland and have more time.
3. Obviously I’m not going to answer this now, I’ll answer it in the next few days on the comment section, or let you know on your posts whether you’re right or not and where it’s actually from.
4. Hmm I can’t think of one straight away. I’d have to say Finding Alaska by John Green. I was expecting a plot twist about falling in love or something like that, but not the actual plot twist we got instead. My brain just kind of went
5. I’ve already written one but here is another one I used to absolutely love as a kid.
There is a farmer, he has to cross a river on a little boat. With him he has a bag of grains, a chicken and a fox. But he can only take one item or thing across the river with him at a time. However, the chicken will eat the grains and the fox will eat the chicken if left alone. How can the farmer get everything across the river without any of them eating each other.
Hoping you enjoyed this post!
