Hello, and happy Tuesday. Today we jump into the final Top Ten Tuesday meme of April. Our topic today is – appropriately, all about words. The topic from That Artsy Reader Girl April 24 is Frequently Used [Book Title Words].

Today’s topic seemed like it be super easy! Why? Well, because it does seem like there are many common words that appear in book titles. How wrong was I. This week’s was a struggle just because I couldn’t come up with ten books with the same word in the title. (Though, yes a struggle, don’t let my words fool anyone; it’s still been a fun prompt. In fact when I first saw this week’s listed, immediately, it jumped out.) In fact, some of today’s featured word has to be a version of said word because of the struggle. That
said, I suspect I simply missed some of the books staring at me, and liking jumping up and down trying to snag my attention.
Because today’s prompt requires a kind of ‘insert your title’ here request, I will say this. I didn’t keep my picks to any one genre. To me, all this suggests is that there are common words that span across multiple genres!
As proof of this, there is – hopefully – a wide range of stories and genres listed below. Something that might appeal to everyone no matter your reading favorites. Let’s take a look stories that have a lot of ‘Heart’ within their pages.
POPULAR BOOK TITLE WORDS
1: The Anatomical Shape of a Heart by Jenn Bennett | This is a recent discovery, but since it sounded so unique, I’ll fess up: I added this one to my bookshelf this past month. Plus, I’ve heard good things about Jenn Bennett and her latest novel, Starry
Eyes. Amazon | Goodreads
3: When a Heart Stops by Lynette Eason | Though it’s been several years since I read this one, I remember loving the high-stakes adrenaline rush story – a feeling that’s often associated with any novel by Lynette Eason. Amazon | Goodreads
4: The Captive Heart by Michelle Griep | The memory is a bit fuzzy for this one, but I feel like it impressed me. The emotions were real and for a historical novel (and being a girl who doesn’t read much in the genre), I was quite enthralled. Though now I
think about it, I’m not sure I ever finished this one…! Amazon | Goodreads
5: The Heart Between Us by Lindsay Harrel | Not only is Lindsay a new to me author, this novel marks her debut (with TNZ Fiction) release. The story sounds amazing, and the cover? It’s such a pretty picture that easily tempts me to dive in and discover this story. Amazon | Goodreads
6: A Loyal Heart by Jody Hedlund | Discovering Jody wrote a fourth book in her YA medieval series is a lovely surprise I didn’t expect. Now, after enjoying the wholesome charms of books 1-3, I look forward to reading this one. Amazon | Goodreads
7: Where Two Hearts Meet by Liz Johnson | This story, as I remember, is another charming beautiful tale set in Liz’s beautifully imagined Prince Edward Island aka one of my dream trip locations. Now to read book three! Amazon | GoodreadsPopular Book Title Words (aka It’s all about the ‘Heart’ of Stories) #FWarchives Click To Tweet
9: Hearts are Like Balloons by Candace Robinson | One of the more recent additions to my bookshelf, this novel boasts a beautiful cover design and sounds like a wonderful story I look forward to discovering. Amazon | Goodreads
10: My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade | Contemporary bliss unfolds in this charming novel which is the debut of its author, Becky Wade. In fact, this is one of the first novels I ever received for review. Amazon | Goodreads
