Bout of Books 10 Spell It Out Challenge

Bout of Books

Kimberly Faye Reads has issued an acrostic poem challenge for Bout of Books 10–to form a name or phrase using the first letter of words from book titles. Not one to do the ordinary (I know, I’m weird), I created my own quirky phrase. Hint: it has to do with my favorite novel topic! I did not include the articles “the” or “a” as first words since titles are not alphabetized with them. Without further ado, here goes.

Girl Who Stopped Swimming (The) by Joshilyn Jackson

Haunting of Maddy Clare (The) by Simone St. James

Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz

Stir of Echoes by Richard Matheson

Test of Wills (A) by Charles Todd

Seance (The) by John Hard

Robber Bride (The) by Margaret Atwood

Unholy Ghosts by Stacia Kane

Lovely Bones (The) by Alice Sebold

Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin


Did you see it? Just in case you didn’t, here’s what my acrostic phrase spells:

Ghosts Rule!

Yes, I am an a ghost novel enthusiast. As an added bonus, all the book titles are, you guessed it, ghost novels, and I’ve even read all of them (exception: Unholy Ghosts I’m in the middle of). Do you love ghost novels, too? Tell me!

    • Yay, another ghost story. At 22 pages, I guess this is what one would call a novelette. I’ll check it out. The description was fun.
