Following on from the Author A-Z game, here's another one inspired by Linda Huber, called Your Name in Books. The idea being to use your name as a sort of acrostic, matching the letters with book titles:
Okay – the book game. You put your own name in the sentence, so for me it’s – Linda loves books. Now ‘all’ I have to do is find a book I’ve read and enjoyed for each of the letters.
Here goes. Many of the book titles link to reviews on this blog:
R - Ronia the Robber's Daughter by Astrid Lindgren. A delightful story from the lady who brought you Pippi Longstocking. A friend named her daughter Ronja after this character.
N - Now & Then by William Corlett. I have absolutely no idea why I don't have a review of this on Deckle-Edged. Think I must have written one for an older blog and forgotten to transfer. Anyway - this is such a good book.
O - Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. Started on the audiobook after being left traumatised by the end of the fist series of the TV adaptation. Good stuff.
V - Vampire State of Mind by Jane Lovering. Vampires performing administrative duties at York City Council. Reading is believing.
E - Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett. Women are just as capable as men, especially when it comes to turning people into toads.
O - Oleg the Snow Leopard by Jean-Claude Brisville. A beautifully illustrated children's book.
S - Sex, Lies & Book Publishing, a useful guide for authors by the Rupert Heath Literary Agency.
