Read-a-thon: Fun with Titles

Bart's Mini-challenge asks us "to pull three or four books off of your bookshelves and use them to form a sentence, from the book titles..."

As he warned, I spent far too long looking at my bookshelves to come up with these, but I think I was needing a break after The Hunger Games, or at least that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it! And I know we were only asked to do one but I kind of stumbled upon the second one while I was searching the shelves for the books in the first one so I thought I'd include it too even though it's not entirely grammatical.

Lying awake after you'd gone, gone for good.

Hope everyone's reading is going well.

  6. I thought about joining in on Bart's mini-challenge, but was afraid I'd take too much time away from my reading. You wound up with a couple of great sentences! I need to pop over to his blog and see what others came up with.

  7. Those are great! You are good. I must have been in a reading daze because I just looked at my book titles and couldn't make heads or tails. I decided to forgo this mini challenge. :)

    Amanda - LOL. I couldn't think of anything right off the bat either but then I started browsing my shelves and came up with those. Others came up with some much better ones though. :)
