Saturday Word Play- Title Ties


The Three Day Long Road Running Too Close To The Home of The White Triffids With Bone Scissors

The terrible and terribly long title above mashes together at least 8 titles of popular books. I'll give you the authors, you find the title. (Hint: All titles run forward. Some words will be used in more than one title.)

As always, feel free to do all eight at home, but only answer one in the comment section, that way 8 people will have a chance to play along.

1. Cormac McCarthy
2. Barbara Gowdy
3. Linwood Barclay
4. Marilynne Robinson
5. Rose Tremain
6. Joseph Boyden
7. John Wyndham
8. Augusten Burroughs
