My Blog’s Name in Books.

I saw this little meme at A Corner of Cornwall (originally from Fictionophile) and thought it looked fun!

The rules:
1. Spell out your blog’s name. 
2. Find a book from your TBR that begins with each letter. (Note you cannot ADD to your TBR to complete this challenge – the books must already be on your Goodread’s TBR)
3. Have fun!  
Now, I don't use my Goodreads TBR as I ought to, so these TBRs are from my Classics Club list...

On


Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck.
Njáls saga.

Bookes


Bliss and Other Stories by Katherine Mansfield.
Ordeal of Richard Feverel, The by George Meredith.
Odd Women, The by George Gissing.
Idylls of the King by Alfred, Lord Tennyson (best I could do!).
Edwardians, The by Vita Sackville West.
Swallowdale by Arthur Ransome.

When I first saw this I wondered how I'd manage it with all the "o"s in my blog's title, it never occurred to me it would be the "k" I tripped up on! 😊

  2. that'd be really difficult; my blog, "mudpuddle soup" would offer significant challenges, i'd think... i'll work on it a bit and let you know if i come up with a solution... but i'll have to make the limit books on my shelves, as i don't have an affiliation with Goodreads...

    1. Well done! I'll be interested to read you thoughts on Dryden - I always mean to read him. Same with Macaulay - I've not read a word of him. And Sitwell - I've heard of that one, supposed to be very interesting :)

  4. The Odd Women is new to me, sounds like an interesting subject! Tennyson, I need to read (Steinbeck, likewise).

    My blog title is terribly long, but I might try this, too. :)

    1. Not sure I'll like The Odd Women - of Gisslign I've only read New Grub Street and I don't think I was terribly keen. Still I'll give it another go!

  5. How fun! Maybe I'll try it later. I kinda think it would be fun to try to do it with books on my actual shelves, but I don't know.

    1. I think that'd be fun too - I would have done it myself but it would have involved getting up out my chair :) (I'm so lazy at present!)
