“I like good strong words that mean something”Jo – Little Women, Louisa May Alcott
My dear friend over on bookstagram challenged me to #spinemyname a few days ago. This was a lot more difficult than I thought it would be! Not only do I have a pretty long (9 letter) name, but it was tricky to find titles beginning with “e” and “l”. I’ve never wished that my name contained a “t” more than while I was looking for titles. Everything seems to start with “the”.
I had grand ambitions to pick a bunch of books that truly reflect me, books that I absolutely adored. However, as it turns out, you can’t be too picky when you’re restricted to the letters of your name, who knew? 😂
Full disclosure, I haven’t read all of these books yet, specifically, Girl, Woman, Other, Becoming, Rebecca, I’ve Been Meaning to Tell You, and Emma – I know, I know, I’m getting to them, I swear!
Anyways, lo and behold, ………….drumroll please………….my name in books!
Girl, Woman, Other A Thousand Splendid Suns Becoming Rebecca I've Been Meaning to Tell You Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows Little Women Lullabies for Little Criminals Emma
Do you see any you like? I absolutely love all the one’s I have read.
