Welcome back to another Top Ten Tuesday post, hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl.
Its been so long since I've taken part in TTT, but I loved the sound of today's one. "Books with Names or Character Names in the Title". So here is my list. Some I have read, and some are in my TBR pile.
The Children of Hurin by J.R.R Tolkien and Christopher Tolkien
Hurin is one of the lead characters, so this counts, and the novel is about his children.
The Children of Hurin was an edited and expanded version of a story from Tolkien's Silmarillion which his Christopher Tolkien worked on for years to bring it to the stage where it could be published as a self-contained novel in its own right.
It was Tolkien's attempt to write a tragedy, but there are totally elements of other Mythology in it too, what with a dragon and a talking sword- and elves. Of course there are elves.
Beren and Luthien by J.R.R Tolkien and Christopher Tolkien
The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien
Really needs no explanation.
The Brides of Mayfair Trilogy by Linore Rose Burkard
Others Not Complete Series:
Lady Regan's quest is the second in a series.....
and Grace By Contract is the first in a series of stories loosely based on Fairy Tales by Rachel Rossano...
Seventh Century Fiction from Sacristy Press: Both these novels are about early English Saints.
Regency romances have been popular today! It's interesting that they so often have names in the titles - a title and a last name anyway.ReplyDelete
My husband loves Tolkien's works but I have not read them. The rest of these are new to me. Here's my link: https://cindysbookcorner.blogspot.com/2022/02/top-ten-tuesday-character-names.htmlReplyDelete
