T10T | Extraordinary Titles

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature formerly hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and is currently hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl

If there’s one thing that will draw me toward a book (other that a beautiful/interesting cover) it’s a good title. So here are 10 titles that pulled me in and made me interested in the book with a word/feeling I associate with the book or what I love about the title. (I haven’t read all of these, so some of my associations may be completely off, but I guess I’ll find out at some point.)

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda (Creekwood, #1)Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

This title is honestly so iconic. It’s kind of a play on words (which I love) and it’s also really love (which I also love.)

Frankly in Love (Frankly in Love, #1)Frankly in Love by David Yoon

Give me all the title puns. Once I knew that the main character’s name was Frank Li, I was sold.

The Careful Undressing of LoveThe Careful Undressing of Love by Corey Ann Haydu

There’s something so soft and warm about this title. I haven’t read it yet (though I know it’s devisive), the title+cover combo pulled me in.

The Secret of a Heart NoteThe Secret of a Heart Note by Stacey Lee

This title just sounds romantic to me. Like a soft and gentle whisper.

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe (Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, #1)Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

Another ridiculously long title I love, it’s more likely than you think. How can you see this title and not think: possibilities.

Wink Poppy MidnightWink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke

This title is just weird because it’s just 3 seemingly unrelated words mashed together, but I think that’s why I like it.

The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn HardcastleThe 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton

The title is another long one (sensing a pattern) but it comlex (fractions) and a bit dark (death). Which works well for this cerebral stroy.

The Sun Is Also a StarThe Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

All the celestial terms make me think of astrology and fate and destiny. Which I think is kinda perfect for this story. Kismet.

The Astonishing Color of AfterThe Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan

This title of a great blend of bold (astonighing) and familiar (after) and instantly makes me think of hope.

The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue (Montague Siblings, #1)The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

This title screams scandal and if that isn’t what Monty is all about, I don’t know what to tell you.

There are a bunch more titles I could have chosen, but I wanted to include book on my shelves (physical or digital) so these were the ones that pulled me in.Signature

    I absolutely love “The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle”! That book is so fun, and so is the title. These are some awesome picks! I really liked “Simon vs. The Homosapiens Agenda”.
