V is for…

VV is for vacant:





No, really, nothing here today guys. I have no V authors, not even in short story form. Yes, I suppose I could have cheated even further and gone with Virginia Woolf, but I promised myself for this challenge I would go by last names only, and so today I’ve got nothing. なし. Zero. Only this lonely empty shelf. Please enjoy:



Books wanted indeed. Have any recommendations for me? Let me know in the comments.

  1. How about… uhm… nope, coming up with a blank for “V” as vell. Maybe if you pronounce zings in Churrmen? Zen zere’s Tad Villiams, Janny Vurts, E. B. Vhite… ok, maybe not such a good idea 😉

  2. I have 6 Barbara Vines on my shelf – she’s the alter ego of British crime writer, Ruth Rendell. Rendell writes whodunnits, Vine is more psychological whydunnits. I also have Homecoming by Cynthia Voigt – the first in a YA series about Dicey Tillerman. But that’s it for V!

  3. I have a children’s book on my shelf, it won the Newberry among other awards: Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool. It’s been a long time since I read it, but I remember really enjoying it!

  4. I actually have two Vs — Jack Vance and Jules Verne. The Jack Vance books are part of the Lyonesse series, and I haven’t read them yet. I have read Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Around the World in 80 Days, and Journey to the Center of the Earth. I liked the first two, but didn’t really enjoy the last one because it was way too claustrophobic for me.

  5. Miranda beat me to Vonnegut (dang that long day of fly fishing!) I’d add “The Sirens of Titan” (which I am currently reading again,) Cat’s Cradle and Player Piano to the list. (He’s one of my faves and there are others worthy of reading time as well.)

    • Awesome! I’ve added the books to my wishlist, thanks! I’m reading Slaughterhouse-Five right now, and so far I’m enjoying it. Really quick read. Thanks again!
