I guess it's an OCD attack, but it occured to me that daughters have been in the spotlight of books, lately. Apart from the fact that they add a nice touch of drama to book names, they really do seem to invoke good story lines lately:

The Bishop's Daughter, by Tiffany L. Warren
The Heretic's Daughter, by Kathleen Kent
The BoneMan's Daughters, by Ted Dekker
The Imposter's Daughter, by Laurie Sandell
The Gifted Gabaldon Sisters, by Lorraine Lopez (okay, so maybe this is stretching it a bit, but it kinda still applies!)

And that's just 2008 and 2009 titles.

I get on this kind of kick, sometimes. There was a time I counted the number of vampire books with "blood" and "bite" puns on its title. And of course, I just LOVED the Walter Mosley titles, with its discriptive colors, like the characters on Reservoir Dogs, except more sultry.

I like "Knight" puns, too.

There's "Forever Knight", "Knight Rider", and of course "The Dark Knight." I remember someone writing an opening line "It was a dark and stormy knight," which of course tickled me silly.

And then of course there are those awesome titles like:
"The Moon Has No Atmosphere"
"Remember Me to Harold Square"
"Thames Doesn't Rhyme with James"
"Are You There God It's Me Margaret"
"Things I've Learned From the Women Who've Dumped Me"
"Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"
"I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti"

To name a few.

There are also those cool, enigmatic titles:
"Across the Nightingale Floor"
"Grass for his Pillow"
"Brilliance of the Moon"
"The Harsh Cry of the Heron"
"The Blood of Flowers"
"Child 44"

I guess I somewhat collect them in my mind. I'm a complete nut.
