Listless Monday, Body Parts Edition

Listless Monday was inspired by both Amanda at A Bookshelf Monstrosity's feature Books by Theme and Court at Once Upon a Bookshelf's Listed feature.  Be sure to check out their lists!

Need Bitter Frost Other Words for Love
I love that none of these books is actually on the list, but they all have lips on the cover - I guess I'll have to do a list with books that have parts on their covers. 

I thought it would make a fun sort of Halloween edition to list books that have body parts in their titles.  Obviously, the content of the books might not be scary, but it could make a fun display.  You know, a few hands here and a bone or two there.  It was a fun list to create, anyway.

Any suggestions?

If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage


  1. Fun! I'd like to suggest:
    Ann-Marie Macdonald's Fall on Your Knees;
    Nairne Holtz's Beneath the Skin;
    Nalo Hopkinson's The New Moon's Arms;
    E.L. Konigsburg's Silent to the Bone; and
    Rebecca Gowers' The Twisted Heart.
    This will have my reader's brain circling for this afternoon for sure!

  2. Ah great one! Every time you ask for suggestions though, my mind instantly goes blank. I'm no help at all!

  3. Buried in Print, all such lovely suggestions! I've added them promptly.

    Suey, I tend to get that blank mind when people ask me for book suggestions. Which, as you can imagine, is not a good trait in a librarian.


Love it when you comment!
