The ‘Spell Your Name with Book Titles’ Tag

Posted by on Nov 6, 2015 | 3 comments

I picked up the challenge of this tag from The Happy Reader. It’s given me a good excuse to look through my books, which have been packed in boxes for months since I still don’t have bookshelves in my new house (I miss looking at my books). Plus it’s a pleasingly primary school-ish task!


Books1K — Kiss by Jacqueline Wilson. I haven’t read this yet, but struggled finding books I had read that start with K!

E — Elizabeth is Missing by Emma Healey. Really clever mystery about an elderly woman with dementia whose best friend goes missing.

N — Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. Intelligent and heart-breaking adult sci-fi.

D — Dark Days by Kate Ormand. YA dystopia about a teen girl fighting the killer robots programmed to destroy her city. Action galore!

R — Remix by Non Pratt. YA contemporary about friendships, festivals and romance. So much heart. Non’s books are must-reads.

A — Arsenic for Tea by Robin Stevens. Second book in the fantastic Wells and Wong series. I have lots of love for these murder mysteries.



Books2L — Lobsters by Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivision. Hilarious YA contemporary following two teens in their attempts to lose their virginity.

E — Eren by Simon P. Clark. Fantasy about a boy who discovers an attic-dwelling creature that lives on stories. Beautiful writing and illustrations.

I — I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. I read this a few years ago and really should re-read at some point. The ending left me in tears of the best kind.

G — Geek Girl by Holly Smale. Love this series; funny and full of heart.

H — Hollow Pike by James Dawson. Witchy, slasher-movie fun.

T — Thirteen by Tom Hoyle. YA thriller about a teen boy trying to escape the cult that wants to kill him.

O — Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood. One of my favourite Atwood novels.

N — Night School by C.J. Daugherty. First book in the popular YA series. I need to get on with reading books 3 to 5!


Have you read any of these? What did you think?

I tag Bananas for Books to show us her books. If you’d like to have a go, consider yourself tagged too!


  1. Love this! I’ve read Remix and Lobsters and lots of the others are on my TBR. Might have to give this a go soon, fab idea.

    • Thanks, Ashleigh! Go for it, would love to see your books. 🙂

  2. Love this!! ‘K’ is hard!
