>Game, Sets and Matching Titles

Not for the first time, my post is spinoff. I saw this idea on Maxine´s blog and liked it: take a look at your TBR and try to divide them into sets. Now I don´t own quite as many unread books as Maxine (though she does her best to rectify that) , but I succeeded in finding eight sets (I allowed myself to use the same titles more than once).

1) Time
Daniel Woodrell, Winter´s Bone
Patricia Highsmith, January has two Faces (literal translation of the Danish title)
Martin Edwards, Yesterday´s Papers
C.J. Box, Three Weeks to Say Goodbye
Karen Campbell, Twilight Time

2) Colours
Thomas H. Cook, Red Leaves
Leonardo Padura, Havana Red
Leah Giarratano, Black Ice
Stephen Booth, Black Dog
Ann Cleeves, Blue Lightning
Peter Robinson, All the Colours of Darkness

3) Figures
Declan Burke, The Big O (Well, that is my interpretation)
Ken Follett, Code to Zero
Sophie Hannah, The Other Half Lives
Kate Atkinson, One Good Turn
Douglas Kennedy, Double Exposure (translation of Danish title)
C.J. Box, Three Weeks to Say Goodbye

4) Animals
Ruth Rendell, The Crocodile Bird
Donna Moore, Old Dogs

5) Music
Cyril Hare, Murder for Orchestra (translation of the Danish title)
Ian Rankin, Exit Music

6) Blood
Ian Rankin, Blood Hunt
Leighton Gage, Blood of the Wicked

7) Death
Ian Rankin, Dead Souls
Randall, The Waking, Dreams of the Dead
Simon Beckett, Whispers of the Dead
