Pretty sure I’m more of a short and sweet reader when it comes to titles and their wordplay. However when it’s good (*cough* Guernsey *cough*), it’s good and basically begs to be read. Am I right? Resulting from this information-that-perhaps-no-one-cares-about is a little list of book titles that are a question.
Let’s find out which books I have on my shelf that pose a query (and maybe whether or not I was more – or less, curious about said book) and more important, which ones ask the good question! Here we go.
BOOK TITLES THAT ARE A QUESTIONPOSING A QUESTION: 10 BOOK TITLES THAT ASK SOMETHING (SORT OF) #BOOKISH #READER #READERCOMMUNITY #AMREADING #TOPTENTUESDAY Click To Tweet
1: DEAR AMERICA: WHEN WILL THIS CRUEL WAR BE OVER?, BARRY DENEBERG
I don’t remember if I read this one or not! But it’s one of those Dear America diary novels that I read LOTS of as a kid. (Did anyone else read these?) This one follows a girl during the Civil War. Amazon | Goodreads
2: DOESN’T SHE LOOK NATURAL?, ANGELA EWELL HUNT
Don’t even know if I still own this one (I could have sold it on eBay or donated it), but at one time I did have a copy of this one. It’s about a single mother who falls into running a funeral home. Amazon | Goodreads
3: CAN YOU KEEP A SECRET?, SOPHIE KINSELLA
Haven’t read this one, but if the premise is accurate (about a woman who spills secrets to a stranger on a plane only to learn soon after that he’s her new boss), this title is a good one. Amazon | Goodreads
4: LADY JAYNE DISAPPEARS, JOANNA DAVIDSON POLITANO
Ok, so no, I realize this isn’t ASKING a question, but it does that a mysterious vibe going for it that begs a question of, what does the titles mean? Who is Lady Jayne? Where do they go? Amazon | Goodreads
5: WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE, MARIA SEMPLE
6: IS IT ANY WONDER, COURTNEY WALSH
I’m using this one for today and making it work because it’s one of those “expressions” that we tend to ask as a question like so, “is it any wonder why she left?” Or some sort of question form. Plus, if you’re still looking for a beach-y read, this Nantucket set contemporary would be a nice little relaxing kind of read. Amazon | Goodreads
7: WHAT’S LEFT OF ME, KAT ZHANG
99% sure I don’t own this one anymore (but it could be in the boxes of books I plan to sell or donate), and also, that this title is meant as a statement rather than a question, however I’m still using it. Because it could work as a question. Amazon | Goodreads
Finally, because I had SO much trouble finding question titles *on my shelf*, I’m adding these two that I don’t own. Just because.
1: WHAT HAPPENS NOW, JENNIFER CASTLE
2: REMEMBER ME?, SOPHIE KINSELLA
3: SUSHI FOR ONE?, CAMY TANG
