Book Title Game

Postby PsychoChique » Sat Jun 20, 2009 4:49 pm

How about a similar to the the movie/song title game(s), played with book titles? - could allow some newcomers in. :D
The book title & author is followed by another, connected by one word (or more) in the title, excluding: the, of, and - basically articles, and words that hold little or no meaning - they need to be nouns, verbs, adjectives or adverbs For any further information about suitable words, please refer to the movie/song title game(s). :wink:

Here I go,
My favourite book at the moment:

Darkly Dreaming Dexter - Jeff Lindsay :thumb: :lol:
Hilarious, strangely enough... :shock:
... I go where the party takes me ...

You're so Beautiful, Like a Tree, or a High Class Prostitute...

... Any Last Requests, Again, My Friend?...

Ooh, this is harder than the movie title game because you can't cheat with imdb! I'll have to find another way to cheat. :hrm:

If it was "the" that doesn't count, unless there's something else I haven't noticed... :hrm:
