A Dog Blogs: Time For Another Round of My Bookish Game

2012-11-25_12-36-51_671Hello world! It’s me – Briar!

I hope you don’t mind me talking to you from my armchair. It’s very cosy and if I look up I can see what’s going on in the garden. I’ve been on snow watch but we haven’t had any at all. Have you?

I haven’t done a blog for a while and Jane is quite busy with her new job, so I thought it this might be a good time for another round of my game.

We’ve done it before, once or twice, so you might remember how it works but I’ll explain it again, just in case.

We think of a person with a lovely blog, we pick five books from our shelves to represent that blogger, we take a picture and make a list, and then you get to guess who it is.

It could be you! Have a guess in the comments! Or if you can’t guess have a look in the sidebar and follow a link to someone you haven’t met before. You might find an answer and you will definitely find a lovely blog.

Here’s the first one:


Man About The House by Francis Brett Young
Some Tame Gazelle by Barbara Pym
The Mayor of Casterbridge by Thomas Hardy
Manja by Anya Gmeyner
Tom-All-Alone’s by Lynn Shepherd

Here’s another:


Snake Ropes by Jess Richards
The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton
The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot
The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce
Broken Harbour by Tana French

And here’s the last one for this round:


Love of Seven Dolls by Paul Gallico
More Women Than Men by Ivy Compton-Burnett
Who Was Changed and Who Was Dead by Barbara Comyns
Miss Hargreaves by Frank Baker
We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson

And now I am going to snuggle up and have a sleepy.

But I’ll be back to look at the guesses, and I’ll tell you the answers in a few days.

  1. Heehee, it’s me! I’m pretty sure no.3 is me – how I adore those books, and they’re all on my 50 Books You Must Read list. Thanks 😀

    As for the others, I’m drawing a blank,,,

    • Lists like yours are very useful for this, though I did remove a few books that screamed ‘Simon’ very loudly I couldn’t bring myself to take them all way.

      Not sure you’ve met no.2 but you really should know no.1!

  2. I think the second one might be Cat from Tell Me a Story. And by the way, Briar, we’ve had lots and lots of snow here this week and I’m glad it’s finally starting to melt!

  3. Hello Briar – you look very comfy. No snow in this part of the world, just lots of summer sunshine.

    🙂 I think the second one might be me, too!!

    And the first – is it heavenali?
