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!
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.
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?
Thanks for reading!
