It’s always a popular read-a-thon game, so title scramble is back!

The length of each word in the title is shown after the scramble (eg The Lord of the Rings would be 3, 4, 2, 3, 5) and we’ve also included the author’s initials as a clue.

Please put your answers behind spoiler tags and don’t link the books otherwise they will appear on the right of the page and spoil the game for other people.

Rachel A. (abyssallibrarian) | 2672 comments This is really hard! I'm normally good at scrambles, but at first look, I only got 2 of these! I got another one after a long time trying various combos. I'll have to come back to the rest.

ETA: Got a few more of these thanks to a teammate who mentioned some of the authors that came up in games, which helped give me a clue to solve these!

Kathryn | 563 comments I agree - this is very tricky!! I don't think the author initials help much, except as a confirmation once I've worked out what I think it might be. I wondered whether having read the book or not made a difference, but of the 5 I've worked out so far, I've only read one!!

Edie | 835 comments Agree this is quite hard. Two of the three I have so far were thanks to the author's initials.
