A Dog Blogs: Do You Remember My Game?

WP_20140518_017Hello – it’s me, Briar!

I’m sorry I haven’t done much blogging lately. How have you been?

We haven’t played my game for ages either. I hope you remember how it works.  We’ve done it before —  once , twice, thrice, four times – but I’ll explain it again, because we haven’t played for a while.

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:


Brat Farrar by Josephine Tey
The Bookshop by Penelope Fitzgerald
Under the Skin by Michel Faber
Lady Rose and Mrs Memmary by Ruby Ferguson
Miss Cayley’s Adventures by Grant Allen

This is number two:


The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd
Eden’s Garden by Juliet Greenwood
The Foundling Boy by Michel Déon
The Museum of Extraordinary Things by Alice Hoffman
The Black Count by Tom Reiss

And last but not least:


Cousin Harriet by Susan Tweedsmuir
 Madame Claire by Susan Ertz
 The Captain’s Wife by Eiluned Lewis
 A Wreath for the Enemy by Pamela Frankau
The Feast by Margaret Kennedy

And that’s it for tonight. Three lovely blogs to identify!

I am going to have a little nap now, and I am hoping that I will wake up to find some good guesses.

Jane will be back tomorrow to talk about a book she has just read, and I will be back later in the week with answers.

  1. Lovely to see the game again – but I am completely stumped. I need to do some browsing. I’ll be checking back to see who is a better guesser than I am!

    • Dear Lisa,

      I hope we haven’t made it too difficult, but now we have done a few rounds it is getting trickier to find people we have the boos for and that you can guess. But Jane is sure you know number one i when she pulled out Miss Cayley she had to check to make sure the books couldn’t be mistaken for yours.

      Love Briar x

    • Dear Kaggsy,

      Jane thinks you know at least one, maybe two of these, but the game is getting trickier. Next time I think I will make things easier by doing people we’ve done before with different books.

      Love Briar x

    • Dear Vicki,

      Hooray! We do like it when people can recognise themselves. Your best of 2013 list was very helpful, and Jane had already remembered that you loved Miss Cayley too.

      Love Briar x
