Urban Fantasy

There has been a great number of books written in the past few years which have included fantasy characters (wizards, witches, vampires, werewolves etc) in a modern everyday setting. I am sure we have all heard of the Twilight & the Harry Potter series but there are many more excellent books out there in a similar vein (and many not so excellent!) Why not share the titles below of your favourite modern, urban fantasy books.

Eurpoean Detectives

This week's theme is a bit different. European detective stories have become quite popular in recent years with some wonderful books out there. It would be good if people could share the titles of books containing European detectives, especially those written by European writers. Share your favourites so others can give them a try!

The Garden

Bank holidays are a traditional time for catching up on the garden. I was fortunate enough to get a few hours of sunshine to spend in the garden this bank holiday. After a very successful week of titles containing types of building, this week we are going for titles associated with gardening or the garden.


There have been several newspaper artciles in the last few weeks featuring structures that have been built from books. So, to turn the tables on this, this week's topic is buildings. So please add any book titles that you know of featuring a building - either a type of building or the name of a famous building.

All Things English!

As we start this week with St. George's Day it is right that we have all things English as our theme. So book title containing any words which are connected with England or the English.


Continuing a general theme connected with the time of year, I feel that this week would be a good time to have flowers as our theme for the week. There are a surprising number of books with with some sort of flower in their title. How many can we come up with ?


With a distinct lack of originality. this week's theme is Easter! So any book titles with any connection to Easter.

All Things Nautical

On 26th March 1839 the first ever Henley Royal Regatta was held. This put me in mind of all things nautical so this week's theme is anything to do with boats, ships, water, rivers etc.....anything nautical in fact.

Spring is in the Air...

Having enjoyed a lovely stroll this morning minus a coat. there can be no doubt that spring is starting to peak out. The buds are out & I noticed some cherry blossom down the road. So what better theme for this week that Spring. So any book titles that have an element of spring in them - anything from sun & daffodils to snowdrops and baby lambs. Which book titles remind you of spring?

All Things Irish....

Having celebrated all things Welsh for St David's Day it is only right that we celebrate all things Irish this week. So we are looking for book titles with any connection to Ireland in them such as shamrock, leprachaun, green....Not as easy as Welsh but I am sure you will all be inventive!

Books, libraries.....

If you have read my recent blog you will see that I ahve been enjoying the new series of "My Life in Books". Consequently, I thought this week's theme could be books. So book titles with the word books, libraries or associated words in their titles. Surely there must be plenty......

All Things Welsh

In celebration of the Welsh victory in the rugby & St David's Day on March 1st, this week's theme is all things inventive!
