Sunday whimsy – my name in books

It’s a year later but this seems a like good day to revive the old blog and update the list.

I have shamelessly nicked this from Linda Huber (who apparently nicked it herself from book blogger Cleo Bannister) because it looked like a bit of fun for a whimsical Sunday blog. Feel free to nick it from me, if you wish. No tagging required 🙂

So, the objective here is to write your name and add ‘loves books’. Then you roam your book shelves (and Kindle/Nook/Kobo/Other reading library) to find titles that match each of the letters. So, here goes, my name in books:

Jennifer Morgue: Laundry Files #3 – Charles Stross (Sci-Fi/Horror comedy)
Othello – William Shakespeare (Lit)
Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency – Douglas Adams (Absurd Fantasy)
Invisible Monsters – Chuck Palauhniuk (Transgressive Fiction)
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close – Jonathan Saffran Foer (Lit)

Mountains of Madness – H.P. Lovecraft (Weird Fiction)
All Tomorrow’s Parties – William Gibson (Cyberpunk)
Necromancer – William Gibson (The original Cyberpunk!)
New Cthulu: The Recent Weird (Anthology of Weird Fiction)

Lullaby – Chuck Palauhniuk (Horror Satire)
On the Road –  Jack Kerouac (Beat Gen Lit)
Villete –  Charlotte Bronte (Lit)
Earthsea Quartet – Ursula LeGuin (Fantasy)
Snow Crash – Neal Stephenson (Cyberpunk)

Beowulf – JRR Tolkien (Lit)
Of Mice and Men – John Steinbeck (Lit)
Oroonoko – Aphra Behn (Lit)
King Pest – Edgar Allen Poe (Lit Horror)
Sunset park – Paul Auster (Lit)

So, what is your name in books?

  1. Hahaha, yes, Z is a tricky one. I had a hard time finding so many O titles. It’s a good thing I took literature at University and still had most of the books!

  2. Oh goodness, this might take time. I don’t even know if I have a book that begins with my first letter! I’ll give it a try though, but maybe at the weekend 🙂 Great idea, Jo!
