Ten Questionable Book Titles

Tuesday, July 13, 2021



Greetings Humans. We haven't done a Top Ten Tuesday Post in weeks, oh how we miss it. I wish I could say we have a fun and quirky post for you today, but I can hardly think straight at the moment. Our country is looking like a scene from a post apocalyptic movie. The National Defense Force is being called into action, but the burning and looting of businesses, factories, pack houses, ag you name it, are still continuing. 

Sky News

So we are just going to list the first 10 books we can think of today with questions in the titles. Luckily my Mommy has a special compartment in her little brain just for books. 

3. How does your garden grow? by Agatha Christie



You all know the drill, add your link to the linky provided by our host, Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl and pay a visit to your fellow Top Ten Tuesday friends.

And if you have a second to spare, please say a prayer for South Africa. We really need it.


Lots of Love,

  1. The unrest in your country is really unfortunate. I guess the promises have been waiting a long time. I didn't know about it until I read your post, and then looked for the news, which is pretty grim. Good luck!

    1. Hi there Diane, we are on day 3 and although it did calm down in certain areas, there are still unrests in many places. Food, fuel and medicine shortages are now our immediate concerns.

      Thanks for the kind words!

  3. I feel like I read Where Are the Children? years ago but can’t remember anything about it. Did you like it?

    I’m so sorry there is so much unrest in South Africa. That must be so frightening. You and your family are in my thoughts. I hope peace returns soon for you.

    Thank you for stopping by my post earlier!

    1. Hi Lydia! I've read most of Mary Higgins Clark's books, but I can hardly remember any of them! As soon as I start reading it again, it normally tends to come back to me. LOL. It was one of her earlier ones and I liked those ones more.

      Thanks for the kind words and for thinking of us. We sure need it.

  4. N or M? is such a funny title to me. I thought about adding the Jessica Fletcher one to my list! I adore Murder, She Wrote. This week's topic was fun!

    1. Hi there Jordan! N or M is a really good Agatha Christie. I think I need to read it again as a matter of fact.

      We still watch Murder she Wrote and my cellphone's ringtone is the theme song to the TV show.

      I also enjoyed this week's TTT!

  5. My comment cut out when I hit enter to add on--I just also wanted to add sorry I am about everything going on in your country. It sounds so scary and I hope you are staying safe! I hadn't heard too much about it until your post, and it just sounds awful. I hope things can start to maybe improve soon. Be well!

    1. Thank you Susan! It's rather difficult to find things that draws your attention away from the current situation in our country, but blogging and support from all you guys does help.

      All prayers are welcome for sure. Thanks so much.

  10. There is too much inequality between humans, between countries, between factions.
    Folks try and try and try, but in the end, they lash out when feeling unheard.
    Where'd you go, Bernadette? was a pretty good book.

    1. We have huge inequality issues here in SA and it counts for such a broad spectrum here. But still, looting and violence will only make the problems so much worse. Within three days of riots, we are already faced with shortages on food, fuel and medicine. Vaccine roll outs have been stopped completely in certain parts of the country as well. So this is one huge disaster at the moment.

      Thanks for your support, we appreciate it so much.

    1. I couldn't agree more! It opens the mystery so nicely if the title already starts with a mysterious question...!

    Despite loving Agatha Christie adaptation, I haven't read any of her books. Someday perhaps I should remedy this! Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland last week.

We love hearing from you and if you talk to me, I'll purr back as soon as possible. Sometimes I take a cat nap and it might take a couple of hours or days, but never fear - the cat always comes back.
