So my post today was going to be about the ‘new’ books I added to my TBR pile in April, but when I signed in here this morning, I came across this fun game/meme on my blogging and goodsreads friend Paula’s blog, Book Jotter . The meme and picture are from the blog Fictionophile, who came up with these.
This was such a fun thing to do that I decided to do the other post later and this one now. This is also the first time I picked something like this up! So the rules are:
- Spell out your blog’s name in book titles.
- Find the books on your TBR shelf. However, to complete this challenge, you are not permitted to add additional titles (i.e. ones that weren’t already on your TBR list when you started).
- Have fun looking through your shelves to find matching titles.
This blog of course has a long long name- seventeen letters but with my gigantic TBR, I figured it wouldn’t be too hard. Well, it wasn’t as easy as I thought either with some letters–‘u’ in particular–making me wonder if I’ll simply have to spell Eustace Diamonds wrong and hope nobody notices (but finally I did find one as you will see). The letter ‘R’ , which occurs four times in my blog ‘s name was no trouble at all, on the other hand, and I could have added a couple more were it needed. So here’s my list:
L: Love Lies Bleeding by Edmund Crispin
I: India: A History by John Keay
T: Tender is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald
E: Exodus by Leon Uris
R: Ruler of the World by Alex Rutherford
A: All Butter Short Dead by H.Y. Hanna
R: The Ruby in the Smoke by Philip Pullman
I: The Infernal World of Branwell Bronte by Daphne Du Maurier
P: Poland by James Michener
O: Oswald Bastable and Others by E. Nesbit
T: Twice Shy by Dick Francis
P: Pomfret Towers by Angela Thirkell
O: Over the Gate by Miss Read
U: The Ultimate Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
R: Revelation by C.J. Sansom
R: The Republic by Plato
I: I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
