Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
These aren’t my top ten forever best titles or anything, largely because gathering those would take forever since I don’t currently have a Goodreads shelf for awesome titles–I really should, though–but they are some pretty amazing titles that I took the time to gather together.
10. Scary Stories for Young Foxes
Honestly, I’m kind of just obsessed with foxes, so that’s how this one ended up here…
9. Howl’s Moving Castle
This is just one of those titles where I immediately fell in love with it. And, granted, my first introduction to this title was via the Miyazaki film, which is probably part of why I was so intrigued since I was partially reminded of one of my all-time favorite movies, Castle in the Sky.
8. Before We Were Strangers
There’s just an extremely emotional feel behind this title and when you really think about it, it can knock you on your back. Honestly, it kind of breaks my heart.
7. And the Ocean was Our Sky
I just love this idea of intermingling the ocean and the sky. I love it so much that my WIP is actually set with this very thought process in mind.
6. The Unbinding of Mary Reade
Mary Reade! Ahh, I know my love of this title is somewhat subjective–but isn’t that really what this list is all about anyway–and it doesn’t fully make sense if you don’t know who Mary Reade actually is…but I love, love, love it.
5. The Astonishing Maybe
I feel like this title just rolls off the tongue really well. You don’t really look at a book with a title like this and think that it’s not about something amazing.
4. This Book is Not Yet Rated
Intermingling film and novels in such a way with this title is something that I find utterly brilliant.
3. The Extremely Inconvenient Adventures of Bronte Meddlestone
I really love titles like this. Though it might not seem that way, it’s incredibly catchy. There’s just something really interesting about this particular format of title and I love it.
2. Sorry I’m Late, I Didn’t Want to Come: An Introvert’s Year of Living Dangerously
As an introvert myself, I am utterly in love with this book’s title. It is so utterly brilliant to me since I understand in such an intrinsic way the feeling that prompted it. This is definitely a book I’m excited about.
1. Swipe Right for Murder
Frankly, I just find this book, the title, the premise, everything incredibly clever. With the way technology and even Tinder have taken such a leading role in the lives of so many people, it’s such an interesting concept to “swipe right” if you want someone murdered.
What do you think of these titles? Do any stand out for you? Any you agree or disagree with? Let me know in the comments!
