Wednesday’s Word = GLASS

Most readers will acknowledge that some words reappear time and time again in titles. Often these words are associated with a particular genre. Case in point: “The girl on the train” and “Gone girl” spawned countless thriller titles with the word ‘girl’ in the title.

I know there are hundreds of books with the word ‘glass’ in the title, but I’m featuring a selection of 22 titles that appeal to me personally, as a way of sharing my book love.

Many genres are included in this collection. Mysteries, spy stories, ghost stories, historical fiction, women’s fiction and more.

Personal note: I always find it interesting when a mirror is referred to as a ‘looking glass’. My paternal grandmother who was born in Scotland always referred to mirrors as looking glasses.

Just click on the cover to read the book’s synopsis from Goodreads.

    I loved The Sound of Glass – one of the first books I reviewed when I had my blog. Also loved Anita Shreve’s Seaglass.

  4. Hi. When I think of Glass, the Glass family comes to mind. They were a big part of JD Salinger’s works. The word Glass doesn’t appear in any Salinger titles though.

    May I add one? The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. A memoir really – I loved it. I fancy The Glass Room, being a fan of Ann Cleeves.

    Yes, I am definitely tempted by several of those covers, so will have to check their synopsis at Goodreads. When I read your title, I immediately thought of Glass Houses by Louise Penny, so was not surprised to see it on your list, Lynne. I have read The Sound of Glass by Karen White and really enjoyed it and The Glass Hotel is on my TBR. Lots here that I am not familiar with at all, so chances on there will be a few added to Mount TBR.

    As an aside, I am so far behind reading blogs so you may have already answered this and I did not see it, but how is your grandson doing. I pray that things have improved for him. Hugs.🤗
