Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Truth be told, I really don’t care about most titles for books? I mean I’m far more invested in the cover and the blurb… But if I had to choose some books that I felt like did have great titles, these would be those:
My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She’s Sorry by Fredrik Backman
I love this one because it just hurts to read it. Like it evokes so much emotion and it’s literally just the title.
One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid
It’s just clever because, ya know, more than one true love…
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
A book about burning books with the title that happens to be the temperature at which paper catches fire????? Extraordinary I tell you!
The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender
I haven’t read this book in years now but I remember the first time it ever caught my eye in the library. It was one of the first times I ever wandered into the adult section and this title just kind of ate away at me until I finally checked it out. According to my Goodreads I rated it 4 stars but I also read it in 2012 so I feel like this one warrants a reread sometime soon. Still love the title though.
The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
I will also give a runner up vote to Save the Date solely because the acronym for it is StD lol.
The Fault in our Stars by John Green
Don’t even have commentary on this other than I love the title.
Pies and Prejudice by Heather Vogel Frederick
I absolutely love this series! It’s called The Mother-Daughter Book Club series and I am dying to reread it because I found out there’s an additional book that I never knew about! These characters are absolutely so near and dear to my heart and the fact that all of the titles are puns for classic novels makes them even better (I might be lying to you when I say this, they might now all be like this). Pies and Prejudice is my personal favorite 🙂
The Opposite of Loneliness by Marina Keegan
This title always makes me think when I read it. Also wondering how many times I can end up mentioning this book this year… So far it’s a lot.
Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
I just like the juxtaposition of America and England with the RWB but it’s royal blue.
I’d Tell You I Love You But Then I’d Have to Kill You by Ally Carter
This might be the only book that I have ever bought off of title alone. Also another series that I desperately need to reread. Honestly, this whole series has pretty good titles.
So basically this post just shows that I really like really long and clever titles. Pretty much sums it up.
