Top Ten Tuesday: Books of a Feather, or Books with Bird Words in the Titles

Posted June 1, 2021 by meezcarrie in Christian, contemporary, cozy mystery, historical, mystery/suspense, romance, Top Ten Tuesday / 7 Comments

Happy Tuesday! It’s a freebie week in Top Ten Tuesday land, and it took me a bit to think of what to talk about today. If you are friends with me on Facebook, you likely know that I have a bird phobia. Yep. Any feathered fowl that gets near me sends me ducking & scurrying for safety. But especially chickens. And geese. And seagulls. And turkeys. Ok, so we’ll just stick with any feathered fowl haha. Despite my phobia, though, I am eager to read these ‘books of a feather’ – aka, books with bird words in the titles (even if I may have to read a couple of them on Kindle to avoid the scary birds on the cover LOL).

What about you? Do you have any random phobias? What other books can you think of that have bird words in the titles?

  1. I was thinking about doing a post like this (not with birds), but with my word of the year. I have to do a bit of research to see if it is feasible.

  2. Ken Kesey – One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest
    Aldous Huxley’s After Many A Summer Dies The Swan
    Delores Topliff – my children’s book, Whoosh, previously published as The Owl Prayer
