My Day in Books

6 December, 2012

The Secret History

I’m not sure whether I’ve done this before but having seen Simon T‘s effort via Cornflower, I thought I’d give it a try and see what I can come up with. Although I’m not sure if it makes much sense, I like a challenge.

I began the day by Twelve

before breakfasting on Snuff

and admiring the Wide Sargasso Sea.

On my way to work I saw The Crippled God

and walked by The Forge of Darkness

to avoid The Possessed,

but I made sure to stop at Bangkok 8.

In the office, my boss said, You Came Back,

and sent me to research The Shadows in the Street.

At lunch with The Last Werewolf

I noticed the Chinaman

in The Night Circus

greatly enjoying The Curfew.

Then on the journey home, I contemplated God’s Own Country

because I have The Secret History

and am drawn to the Weight.

Settling down for the evening in Wolf Hall,

I studied the Song of Achilles

by The Garden of Evening Mists

before saying goodnight to The Thief.

So, what did you think? And why don’t you have a go too? Just complete the sentences with the titles of the books you’ve read this year. Go on!

  1. The Secret History is one of my most favorite books everrrrrrr…. Just read it this year for the first time and am looking forward to the eventual re-read in the next couple of years.

    That was a whole lot of fun. I hadn’t seen that done before. It flowed really well and has the bonus of being done with the titles of some great books.

    The Secret History in particular is an engaging book. I read it over ten years ago and still remember the experience as if I had just read it.

  3. Cornflower Says:

    Great, Sakura!
    It can be hard to get titles to ‘fit’, but it’s fun when they do.

  4. TracyK Says:

    Nice set of books there. I looked at your Bangkok 8 review. Motivates me to read my copy. And it looks like I need to read The Secret History, it is getting so many compliments. I put it off because it is so long.

  5. Looks like fun, well done!
