Hey there, happy readers and friends. Today we get another list on this fine day in which we talk about more bookish things, more specifically, extraordinary book titles!
On a frequent basis I’ve made mention of the fact that I am something of a cover art snob and I’ve been known to buy a book for its stunning cover art alone. Of course, I do also read the synopsis first. But a pretty picture cover design is ten times more likely to snag my attention than one that doesn’t aesthetically appeal. Part of my case in being a self-diagnosed cover snob is that a book cover is the first impression. But perhaps another thing that can make a good first impression is a solid novel title.
Now we get to showcase some of the book titles that we things have extraordinary titles (or maybe just plain cool titles).
Let’s take a tour of the ten I feature, shall we?
Top Ten Tuesday October 15: Extraordinary Book Titles
1: Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crawley
This title is not only lovely to say, it also has a kind of bittersweet quality that makes me wonder if the story is happy or sad. Amazon | Goodreads
2: The Stars We Steal by Alexa Donne
3: The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery
A book with a castle? That’s all I need to know. Although, I must confess I have as yet to listen to all of my reader friends and actually read this one! Amazon | Goodreads
4: The Library of Lost Things by Laura Taylor Namey
Don’t know anything about this recent release, but doesn’t it sound interesting? The whole bookish title is what draws me in. Amazon | Goodreads
6: Field Notes on Love by Jennifer E. Smith
I feel like any of Jennifer’s book titles would fit seamlessly into this list, but I opted for her latest release. Amazon | Goodreads
7: Fame, Fate and the First Kiss by Kasie West
This title is pretty self-explanatory because it fits the story well. Makes me said that Harper changed Kasie’s next novel title publishing with them. We’ve lost the alliteration of her three connected YA contemporaries; first with Love, Life and the List, next this one and what once was Hearts, Heroes and Heath Hall is now Moment of Truth. Just doesn’t have the same ring, right? Amazon | Goodreads
8: This Train is Being Held by Ismee Williams
Pretty sure this title is what made me stop, take a second look, click the link and read the Goodreads synopsis of this one. I mean, it’s pretty fun, right? (Plus, learning it’s a contemporary just magnifies the excitement.) Amazon | Goodreads
9: Frankly in Love by David Yoon
Gotta’ love a good “pun-y” title, and this one works because the protagonists name is Frank. Plus it’s just, plain and simple, darling. Amazon | Goodreads
10: The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon
I mean, this title needs no explanation. It’s pretty, attractive and is unique because it comes from a poem line that fits seamlessly into the story. Amazon | Goodreads
