Finding Audrey

TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books with Character Names in the Titles

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is, as the title suggests, books with character names in the title. This did take a bit of thinking on my part but eventually I thought of ten books I’ve read and enjoyed which had a name in the title. It’s been a while since I’ve read some of these so I don’t know if I’d like them as much now, but the first two books are still some of my all-time favourites.

Sabriel by Garth Nix
Lirael by Garth Nix
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch
Sirius by Jonathan Crown

Zorro by Isabel Allende
When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
Lala by Jacek Dehnel
Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella
Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

Have you read any of these?

REVIEW: Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella

FullSizeRender (83)Audrey can’t leave the house, she can’t even take off her dark glasses even when she’s in the house. But then Linus (a friend of her brother Frank) stumbles into her life and slowly she learns to take chances and leave the house again. With Linus by her side, she feels she can take on everyday things that were too big and scary before.

Sophie Kinsella is the author of the Shopaholic series and a lot of other adult chick-lit books that I’ve enjoyed so I did expect Finding Audrey to be the same. But Audrey was fourteen and while the book is about mental illness and has the same humour as her adult novels, it is very much a YA novel.
