Favorite Book Titles II

The Girl from the Sea

This is the second part of my look at favorite book titles. A lot of times it's the combination of title and cover art that draws me in, or other times it's one or the other. In this particular case though there's something about each of these titles that I think really works, or is just evocative to me. Which are your favorites- let me know!

THE COURTS OF CHAOS

Something about this one? It just oozes mysteriousness...

The Courts of Chaos

RED EYE OF BETELGEUSE

This is old school SF all the way, with evocative titles and inspiring artwork. Okay, sometimes. Still this puts me in mind of some star- spanning galactic adventure.

Red Eye of Betelgeuse (Perry Rhodan - English, #40)

PLANET OF NO RETURN

Another Golden age SF pick. I mean that's a pretty uncompromising title, and the backdrop with a moon or planet in the background- it just has atmosphere.

THE SNOWS OF GANYMEDE

I like titles that evoke a sense of place, and where better than a moon of Jupiter to do that?

RADIO SILENCE 

Okay moving on from old school SF. I love this title because to me it speaks to loneliness maybe, or sorrow of some kind, or maybe just wanting to be understood?

Radio Silence

THE LIFEBOAT CLIQUE

Right there you know something is going on, otherwise why are they in a boat?

HALF-OFF RAGNAROK

Looks like a fun book. I just like that title.

Half-Off Ragnarok (InCryptid, #3)

DEAD GIRLS SOCIETY

With a title like that you gotta wonder...

Dead Girls Society

THE ENCHANTRESS OF WORLD'S END

More old school craziness. Seriously though- that title??

Sunday Post #220


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer

It's been a quiet week, not a lot happening. Just trying to heal and be as active as I can. It's frustrating that I can't do more, but it will come. So I've been reading, I finally broke the logjam that was Top Ten- I liked the book but was just stalled out on reading. And Netflix- another great way to pass time- I just need to figure out which show I want to try next. Tough life I know!    

I drafted the first post about my experience as a heart patient- I've been wanting to share some of that journey since I got out, and my post will be up on Wednesday the 29th.  

Last week I reviewed Ringer and this week will be Top Ten. And I've got some books I'm really geeked for so the coming weeks should be great, reading- wise. In the meantime take care of yourselves and enjoy the weekend!

Wanderlust prt I




My writing prompt: Sweat trickled down her forehead and for a moment she forgot the buzzing of insects, the biting of gnats, as she stared into the temple threshold. Somehow she could sense it was cooler within, and the quiet of it appealed as well, after the shrieks and cacophony of the jungle. The two guardians to either side of the entrance were so weathered as to be almost unrecognizable, and the vines hanging down added to the foreboding quality of the place. But there was a strange light within- and how could they turn back now?
