Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Today’s topic is supposed to be about characters traits that interest us in a character, but I didn’t feel like writing about that today. Instead the topic for next week caught my eye. It is about book titles, the best of the best. So here are 10 books that I feel have amazing titles.
1. We Are the Weather – by Jonathan Safran Foer
Why I like it: Because it really pops, it tells me what the book is going to be about (climate change) but tells the story in a different way.
2. Never-Contented Things – By Sarah Porter
Why I like it: Even though I didn’t like the book this title is pretty dang awesome, it’s obviously about fairies and I like what it says about them.
3. The Manic Pixie Dream Boy Improvement Project – by Lenore Appelhans
Why I like it: I like the image it conjures up, and I like that it’s about a manic pixie boy. Sadly after reading the book I think the title should have been different.
4. The Left Hand of Darkness – by Ursula K. Le Guin
Why I like it: Y’all knew I couldn’t write a list of books without adding one of these on there. 😀 Anywho, I love the idea behind this title which isn’t revealed until later in the book. But just the title itself feels different and unique. What is a left hand of darkness? It makes me want to read the book.
5. Motherhood So White – by Nefertiti Austin
Why I like it: I love how this title stands out against the rest of the cover, it makes me pause and think and know I need to read this book.
6. Idiot Brain – by Dean Burnett
Why I like it: My brain is an idiot! So obviously I need to read the book based on the title. 😀
7. Trauma-Proofing Your Kids – by Petter A. Levine & Maggie Kline
Why I like it: Is it possible to completely trauma-proof a child? This title gets me asking that question and wanting to know more, because if it’s possible that’s what I want to do!
8. On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous – by Ocean Vuong
Why I like it: It’s simple yet deep, poetic and makes me need to read the book right away.
9. The Archive of Alternate Endings – by Lindsey Drager
Why I like it: I love everything about this cover honestly, the text is a great color of green against the super cool background. And the title is just catchy.
10. The Bone Houses – by Emily Loyd-Jones
Why I like it: Sounds creepy af.
