Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today is all about book titles. I can imagine that coming up with a great, unique title for a book is one of the hardest things out there. Because, no matter how much I love those titles with kings, queens, princes or princesses in them, they’re not exactly inspired either. But once in a while, there are books out there where the title alone draws you in. No matter the cover or the content. Sometimes that bookish love at first sight happens purely based on the title.

That’s what happened with me and the following books!

Some of the book titles I personally love for so many different reasons. All brilliant book titles if you ask me!

Tash Hearts Tolstoy by Kathryn Ormsbee Aristotle and Dante Discover The Secrets of the Universe how-to-repair-a-mechanical-heart-by-j-c-lillis

Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli the-gentlemans-guide-to-vice-and-virtue-by-mackenzi-lee They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera

illuminae-by-amie-kaufman-and-jay-kristoff Amy and Roger's Epic Detour Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me by Mindy Kaling

Winner in the category of ‘Best consecutive titles in a book series’:

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra BrackenΒ Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken In the Afterlight by Alexandra Bracken

And some fun book titles of books I still need to read:

The Princess Saves Herself In This OneΒ Pride And Prejudice And Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith Nice Dragons Finish Last by Rachel Aaron

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE Book titles? Do you love it as much as I do when a book has a fun, Intriguing or just overall unique title?Β 


  1. Love the title Tash Heart Tolstoy and The Gentleman’s guide to vice and virtue

    1. They’re definitely both fun titles πŸ™‚

  2. Three cheers for P+P+Zombies!! Such a fun book. Oh, and I enjoyed ‘Amy and Roger’ too! Now I just have to read Maton’s other books. πŸ™‚

    1. Glad to hear you enjoyed P + P + Zombies! Hope to get to it soon πŸ™‚ Matson’s books are definitely fun too.

  3. These are definitely some of the great choices. Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is indeed intirguing πŸ˜€

    1. Thanks! Yes, the Simon title is one of the first things that drew me in… and then I fell in love with the story πŸ™‚

  4. I’m really looking forward to reading Adam Silvera’s newest book. Love that title! You’ve got some great choices. πŸ™‚

    1. It does have a unique title πŸ™‚ Hope you’ll love it as much as I did!

  5. Love the titles of the books you listed. The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue sounds amazing, but I did hear mixed reviews about it. And I read ‘Is everyone hanging out without me?’ & adore that book. It’s a great book when you just need a good laugh.

    1. Thanks! I personally loved The Gentleman’s Guide To Vice and Virtue, so I hope you’ll enjoy it as well if you choose to pick it up! eIs Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?e was indeed hilarious πŸ™‚

  6. Great list. Simon made my list this week as well πŸ™‚

    1. Yes, Simon was one of the first books I though of when I saw this prompt. But then, I love that book so mpuch that I’m often thinking about it, haha πŸ™‚

  7. Great list. I love how The Darkest Minds books make a long title like that. I still have to read P & P & Zombies as well.

    1. Thanks! Yeah, the consecutive title felt very unique to me, haven’t seen anyhing like it yet… Hope we’ll both enjoy P & P & Zombies πŸ™‚

  8. Yes, I adore unique titles! They don’t even have to be that long – just jump out at me. This is a fun topic. A lot of books on here that I love (like Simon Vs.), and many I still need to read (like They Both Die at the End).


    1. Exactly, a unique title can just grab your attention right away πŸ™‚ Yay for Simon, love that book! Hope you’ll enjoy They Both Die At The End.

    1. It does sound so fun and straightforward πŸ™‚

  9. I agree, these are all great titles! They definitely would make me want to take a closer look! A few are already on my TBR stacks, in fact. πŸ™‚

    I admit my favorites from your list are The Princess Saves Herself in This One and They Both Die in the End. There’s something to be said for straight forward catchy titles. πŸ™‚

    Thank you for sharing!

    1. Straight forward titles are definitely so much fun! Especially because we still just have to read to know if it’s true or not πŸ˜‰

  10. I LOVE cool book titles– and almost put Gentleman’s Guide on my list this week too!! I also LOVE the title of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?. Perfection!! And I’m a sucker for book titles with names in them like Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour.

    1. Gentleman’s guide is indeed so cool πŸ™‚ And Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me was hilarious πŸ™‚ And something we’ve all thought at some point probably haha πŸ™‚

  11. Nice list! Simon made mine as well, and I was like 2 seconds from including How to Repair A Mechanical Heart, but I only had a digital copy and it threw off the vibe of my post. You can see mine if you’d like here:

    1. Yay for the Simon love πŸ™‚ And yes I totally understand, I also removed a few choices because they didn’t fit the lay-out πŸ˜‰

  12. Oh wow, the “consecutive book series” titles are awesome! I don’t read a lot of series (or maybe I’m just extremely unobservant), so I’ve never seen anything like that (and I’m a little annoyed I didn’t think of it myself, haha). I’m discovering so many new book through this meme, thanks for mentioning them, now I’ll have to check them out based on how intrigued I am by their titles alone!

    1. I love the consecutive book series title one too, though I’ve only ever seen this one myself as well πŸ™‚ Weird that more authors don’t chose to go this route. Thanks, hope you’ll enjoy any books you choose to try!

  13. I remember when Pride and Prejudice and Zombies first came out, I laughed so hard at that! Great list today!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thanks!

    1. It is such a unique and fun idea! Hope I’ll get to actually read it soon πŸ™‚

  14. Some great choices here!

    1. Thanks so much πŸ™‚

  15. Oh I’m loving your selection of book titles here! I especially love Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, it’s such a fun title. I haven’t read the Darkest Mind series, but I just love how these titles follow each other like that? I like them all together for sure πŸ™‚ Did you read and enjoy the whole series? πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Marie! Yes, Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour made me want to read it asap to find out more πŸ™‚
      Yeah, I love the book titles for The Darkest Minds series! Makes me wonder why more authors don’t choose to go that route, it’s so fun πŸ™‚ I read the series a few years ago and I really liked it! Not sure if I’d still like it now as I overdosed on dystopians a bit, but I’m still super excited about the movie coming up.

  16. Tash Heart Tolstoy and The Gentleman’s Guide are pure epicness! I didn’t like The Princess Saves Herself in this One but hope you enjoy it more than I did!

  18. Yes to all of these. In fact I usually became interested in them because of their unique titles. Great choices!

    1. Yes, titles definitely play an important role in whether or not a book gets our attention πŸ™‚

  19. Some really great picks here! And I’ve read NONE OF THEM!!!!!!! But you know most are on my TBR!! Eep.

    What did you think of The Darkest Minds series???

    1. AH thanks Di! Hope you’ll love all of these when you get to them πŸ™‚
      I really liked The Darkest Minds series, even if it’s not an all-time favorite. It was an intriguing world, I loved the characters and I’m a sucker for normal people with powers storylines. Really curious about the movie now!
