Meme- Title ABC's

Why am I awake and blogging at four am? Good question. My daughter is sick and I had to get up at three to check on her. Now I can't get back to sleep (husband snores pretty loud). So here we are. Well, KittyCat from Right Reads tagged me a few days ago for this alphabet meme I've seen floating around forever. I was surprised how easy it was to come up with these titles! For every book listed here I easily thought of a few more, so maybe I'll do a second alphabet meme in the future. These are mostly old favorites (except for maybe Up the Down Staircase. It was good, but I wouldn't really call it a favorite. I couldn't think of another U title, though).

Loved Bone People and Poisonwood Bible. And I'm excited to see you have a review of The Zoo where You're Fed to God--I picked that up on at a used sale a few years ago because I liked the title, but haven't heard anything about it!

Hmmm--Ok--not a review. So you'd recommend it?

Sorry about that! Maybe I should have just posted links to my reviews, but I wanted to give people something to read about each book, as some of them are less-known....

Yes, I'd recommend it. It's kind of an odd story, quirky but interesting. Not like any other I've read! I'll make a point to write about that one soon.

No worries! Just excited to see the title and know someone else who read it!
