Say My Name, Say My Name in Books

I’ve seen this tag a lot lately. I last saw it on Roof Beam Reader‘s blog and thought why not give it a go. The tag, My Blog’s Name in Books, originated over at Fictionophile.

The rules are simple:

1.  Spell out your blog’s name. (this is where you wish your blog’s name was shorter LOL)

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!  

It was pretty fun to go through my Goodreads list and see what books I have on my TBR that correspond to each letter of my blog’s name. However, I decided to focus on books I’m reading this year for my challenges. I surprised myself with the amount of diversity on my list. See the stats at the end of this post.

    Such a great and diverse selection of titles! I really loved Homegoing and Kindred, and enjoyed One Hundred Years of Solitude. I also want to get to I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings and The Namesake soon. Looks like you have a lot of great reads to look forward to!

      Thanks Jessie! I was coming off of Kindred when I started reading Homegoing and put it down because I just couldn’t do two slavery books back to back. Looking forward to reading it soon.

        That was probably the right decision! They’re both difficult and emotional reads enough on their own.
