My Blog’s Name in Books

I saw this little meme at On Bookes  (originally from Fictionophile) and thought I might join in. Though the name of my blog is quite long I did manage to find books from my shelves.  You might get a better idea why I am focusing on TBR. So many really good unread books!
The rules are:
1. Spell out your blog’s name
2. Find a book from your TBR that begins with each letter. You cannot add books from another source other than your shelves.
3. Have fun looking through your shelves finding books that meet the criteria.
(The dates are the published dates of the book on my shelf, not necessarily the original publication date.)
