Themed Reading

Page 7 of 8, showing 12 themes out of 94 total.

Up & Down

Last night saw the start of a new series of Upstairs, Downstairs. Consequently I thought this week we would look for book titles with the words "up" or "down" in them. If you can manage to find one with stairs in it so much the better!

Medical Terms

Call the Midwife, the surprisingly successful drama on sunday evenings, is the most recent book that I ahve completed & reviewed. This put me in mind of books which contain medical terms in their titles. I bet there are more than I think there are!

Elizabeth & George

Today is the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth's accension to the throne following the death of her father King George VI. Having already had a royal theme, this week's theme is going to be Elizabeth & George. So any book titles with either George or Elizabeth (or variations) in their title.


This weekend saw a national survey of garden birds. So this week's theme is birds. Book titles containing any words to do with birds.

Art & Artists

On this day in 1989 Salvador Dali, the acclaimed artist died. The theme for this week is, therefore, anything to do with art, artists, their materials or any clever connections which you can think of!


This week's theme is winter. So we are looking for book titles containing words associated with Winter.

Nobility & Royalty

Today, 9th January, is Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge's 30th birthday. So the theme of the week is any connection with nobility or royalty. I am sure that people will be able to come up with some very inventive book titles for this week's theme!

New Year

As we start a new year the theme for this week is, naturally enough, "New Year". So any book titles with the words "new" or "year" in them. A title with both is even better!


Having had drink as a theme (which turned out to be rather more difficult that I had expected), I thought this week we'd go for food. After all I am sure many of us have consumed more than is usual in the last few days....or maybe I just speak for myself. So, any book titles with items of food in the title.


With distinct unoriginality the theme for this week is Christmas. Book titles with the word Christmas or any other associated words.


The run up to Christmas can be a very sociable time of year with parties & meals. It seems appropriate that this weeks theme should be titles with the name of a drink (both alcoholic & non-alcoholic).

Boys Names

Tomorrow is St Nicholas' Day so this week the theme is boy's names. So any book title with a boy's name in it. Last week some of the titles were very inventive - what odd titles can we come up with this week?
