Saturday Word Play- Three Word Titles, Divided by Three


In today's Saturday World Play, we look at book titles with three words (excluding "of" or "the"). Taking it a step further, because it is a magic number you know, the number of letters in each title is divisible by three.

I've given you the author name, as well as the number of letters in the title. Can you use the given groups of three letters to figure out the title?

As always, feel free to do all ten at home, but only answer one in the comment section to allow nine more people to play along. *If you're stuck, pay attention to the letters that have been eliminated by other players.

Gypsysmom: Excellent- so glad you got that one!

This one is beyond my, I'm afraid. It's because the easy ones are already taken. Yeah that's it.
