Your name in books!

Can you make your name using book titles?

I have seen a few people doing this and thought it would be fun…but had no idea that it would be so hard!

Here goes:


I decided to restrict myself only to books I physically have on my bookshelf and to books I love so this could also be a recommendations list. If you’ve been around on this blog for a while, you will probably recognise lots of these titles!

I was worried that ‘I’ would be the most difficult letter to find, especially as I have two, but I found them in very little time…the one that took the longest was ‘N’ (because Nyxia is currently in my partner’s reading pile rather than on the shelf!). I am also aware that I have cheated slightly with The Storm Keeper’s Island, but there are lots of titles starting with ‘S’ and I really wanted to include this one!

C – Cuckoo Song – I love this story of changelings very much!

H – Hold Back The Stars – a brilliant sci-fi romance which will have you weeping (see my  review here)

R – Reckless –  One of my favourite books of all time where a boy searching for his father finds that all the fairytales are true (How have I NOT written a review for this yet?!)

I – Invisible Library – Another favourite, where librarians travel through alternate universes to retrieve rare copies of books.

S – Storm Keeper’s Island – just amazing, one of the best books I have read this year! (see my review here, read the first 3 chapters or see my interview with the author )

T – Tithe – my first introduction to urban fantasy and one of the first writers I came across who really dug into the darker side of fairytales.

I – Invisible Cities – this book is a masterpiece of imagination and I credit it, in part, for my itchy feet and wanderlust!

N – Nyxia – dark sci-fi with an irresistible narrator  (see my review here)

A – Ascension – Six girls and six boys, on their way to Mars to start a new human colony, each with their own reasons for leaving Earth (see my review here)

I would recommend every book in the list very highly – let me know what you thought if you’ve read them!

What would your name be in books?

Have you read any of the books I have shared above?

Which letter do you think would be the most difficult to find on your bookshelf?

  1. I’d find this both very easy due to my name only having 3 letters, and quite hard as well as I’m currently struggling to think of a book to fit Y! I finished Storm Keeper’s Island yesterday and I enjoyed it 😊

    1. I read a book yesterday called, You Only Live Once (Could be your Y!) by Jess Vallance.
      It’s recommended for fans of Geek Girl so I imagine that you would enjoy it! I really liked it!
      Glad you enjoyed Storm Keeper’s Island. I’m also glad I read it when i did because I was craving something just like it and our experience of books depends so much on our feelings at the time.

      1. It took me ages to read due to a few reasons, but I enjoyed it. I’m intrigued by YOLO but also scared because it’s been so heavily compared to Geek Girl, which makes me more than a little wary as I love those so much…
        I’ll probably try it at some point! X

      2. I think Geek Girl still holds the crown, but YOLO is better than I was expecting. Unlike Harriet, the main character, Grace, is quite normal academically and has to work hard to do well in school, which she finds really tiring. At first I wasn’t hooked, then the emotions grabbed me at page 130…
