Can you spell your name in books?
This is a fun blog game I came across last week, when I was catching up with things after my break in Scotland. It had me wandering round my bookcases looking for titles beginning with the appropriate letters, and you can see the result below.
I’ve had a busy few days since I returned to Switzerland. As well as promoting The Attic Room (which is on special offer for the autumn hols, so if anyone wants a 99p read on kindle, look here, for 99c look here), I’m working through my editor’s recommendations for the next book, and also trying to find the odd moment to get on with my newest project. And then there’s the day job, too…
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. Off we go:
I – In the Presence of the Enemy by Elizabeth George, another ‘must-buy’ writer.
N – Nurse by Peggy Anderson. I’m a real sucker for medical novels.
D – Déjà Dead by Kathy Reiches, another favourite.
A – A Dark-Adapted Eye by Barbara Vine who was really Ruth Rendell.
O – On the Banks of Plum Creek by Laura Ingalls Wilder, a favourite children’s writer.
V – Vector by Robin Cook, who writes medical thrillers – the perfect combination.
E – Ethics Made Easy by Colin Douglas. Part of a hilarious medical comedy series.
S – Silent Voices by Ann Cleeves. One of her ‘Vera’ books.
O – Out of the Tower by Alison Grey. A lovely book set in the west of Scotland.
O – On Laughton Moor by Lisa Hartley. First in her DS Catherine Bishop series.
K – Katy by Joan Collins. The true story of her daughter’s brain injury and recovery.
S – Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austin. One of her best.
So that’s my name in books. (I was glad my parents didn’t call me Oonagh – three Os were enough!)
The woods by my flat are more autumnal every week now:
