message 18: by Dezra (new)

Dezra Bennett (dezra_bennett) | 652 comments I would like to do this challenge sometime, but I'm pretty positive no author or charater has my name, which is Dezra.


message 19: by Trisha, lives on coffee (last edited Jan 22, 2014 07:10AM) (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments hmmmm...I'll see what I can find Dezra, but here's at least one:

Dezra's Quest (Dragonlance Bridges of Time, #5) by Chris Pierson and then there's this author: Dezra-Lehr Guthrie & Dezra Despain Phillips

I'll keep looking tho :)


message 20: by Trisha, lives on coffee (last edited Jan 22, 2014 07:26AM) (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments also, I thought this might work
the name Desirae and/or Desdemona often goes by Dez - which might open some options for you.
I wasn't sure if you had a nickname, but I thought I'd try this just in case :)

there's:
Otherkin (Otherkin, #1) by Nina Berry who's name is Dez
Life, A.D. by Michelle E. Reed also has a Dez as MC
The Cutting Room Floor by Dawn Klehr - okay this one is a bigger jump. Full name is Desmond but goes by Dez
Dead of Night by Jonathan Maberry also has a Dez (short for Desdemona)
Cascade by Maryanne O'Hara - not a ya book but many of my friends gave it good reviews. also has a Dez

there's also Dez Burke as an author but the books are pretty....uh....adult. I wasn't sure if you'd want to read that, but thought I'd mention it just in case

Okay, there's a few. All I did was google "books with Main character named Dez" and then start sifting through the results. I hope there's something in here that might work or if you can maybe find a book with you nickname or whatnot :)


message 21: by Dezra (new)

Dezra Bennett (dezra_bennett) | 652 comments Thank you Trisha. I wasn't sure how this challenge was going to work for me. I don't have access to internet daily so its usually difficult to find all this out. I appreciate you taking time to help me out. :)


message 22: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31440 comments No prob!! :D let me know if any of those work. I can look around some more if they don't. Do you have a nickname or anything else I can search for?

Otherwise, I hope you enjoy this challenge. I loved completing this one!


message 23: by v.v (new)
