Y’all know I live in the Midwest, so snow in winter is pretty much a given. That said, after I’ve been out braving the elements, pretty much the only thing I want to do is curl up next to a toasty fire and read a book. This (of course) got me to thinking about a list and books with flaming titles. Shall we?!
1. Foxfire by Joyce Carol Oates: The book is subtitled “Confessions of a Girl Gang.” I’m not sure more description is completely necessary.
2. The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon: It is my mission in life to include an Outlander book in every list I make. Okay, so that’s kind of a lie, but it seems to happen often enough for me to claim it.
3. Burning Bright by Tracy Chevalier: Because SOMEBODY needed to write a historical fiction novel with William Blake as a central character. Tyger, tyger indeed.
4. Cinder by Marissa Meyer (review): It’s everyone’s favorite cyborg Cinderella, y’all! Speaking of which, I think there’s a new installment of The Lunar Chronicles floating around out there. I need to check it out.
5. When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris: I love David Sedaris. There is nobody as bizarre and delightful and dark and hilarious.
6. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury: Of course I went there. The temperature at which books burn? I mean, who hasn’t read this one with the “firemen” and the HORRORS?
7. Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire by JK Rowling: You know you wanted to put your name in the Goblet of Fire. Even if it meant battling a dragon and/or certain death. You’re reckless that way.
Got any more fiery titles burning a hole in your brain, Bookworms?
