June: Rain in the forecast - "watery" titles

June is the beginning of hurricane season, and it's also the beginning of the daily afternoon downpour that is so regular you can set your watch by it.  The rain is a standard part of the Florida summer experience, so I thought I'd mark it by reading books with titles featuring some form of water.

On the list:
Hard Rain Falling, by Don Carpenter
Taken at the Flood, by Agatha Christie
The Sea and Poison, by Shusaku Endo
Creatures of the Pool, by Ramsey Campbell
Blood River, by Tim Butcher
The Sea Came in at Midnight, by Steve Erickson

and whatever else I can scare up from my shelves that fits. I'll be reading Dave Eggers' Zeitoun and a couple of other books about hurricanes during the month as well. If you have any suggestions, they are most welcome.


  1. Love your idea!! I am doing a challenge of a different kind - to read some books over the summer - books I've been meaning to read for a long long time.

  2. Oh thanks! I do these mini-challenges every month (except May) - they sort of force me to read what I've got in the house!

  3. Aww wow! This is actually just an adorable idea! How very clever!


Say what you will, but at least try to be nice about it.
