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!

Aristotle and Dante Discover The Secrets of the Universe

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

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?

    1. They’re definitely both fun titles 🙂

  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. 🙂

    1. Glad to hear you enjoyed P + P + Zombies! Hope to get to it soon 🙂 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 😀

    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 🙂

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

    1. It does have a unique title 🙂 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 🙂

  6. Great list. Simon made my list this week as well 🙂

    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 🙂

  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 🙂

  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 🙂 Yay for Simon, love that book! Hope you’ll enjoy They Both Die At The End.

    1. It does sound so fun and straightforward 🙂

  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. 🙂

    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. 🙂

    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 😉

  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.
    Michelle @ Pink Polka Dot Books recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday– Books With Unique TitlesMy Profile

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

  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: http://nerdnarrationblog.wordpress.com/2017/10/24/top-ten-tuesday-books-with-unique-titles/

    1. Yay for the Simon love 🙂 And yes I totally understand, I also removed a few choices because they didn’t fit the lay-out 😉

  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 🙂 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 🙂

  14. Some great choices here!
    Jo recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday #130My Profile

    1. Thanks so much 🙂

  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 🙂 Did you read and enjoy the whole series? 🙂
    Marie @ Drizzle & Hurricane Books recently posted…Favorite, anticipated books and some other bookish questions answeredMy Profile

    1. Thanks Marie! Yes, Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour made me want to read it asap to find out more 🙂
      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 🙂 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!
    Kei @ The Lovely Pages Reviews recently posted…Still by Kennedy RyanMy Profile

    1. They are so amazing indeed 🙂 Sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy The Princess Saves Herself in this One!

  17. The Gentleman’s Guide is on my TBR list. I love that title.
    Aj @ Read All The Things! recently posted…Top Ten Tuesday: Book Titles That Made Me CringeMy Profile

    1. It is such a fun title 🙂 Hope you’ll love it as much as I did!

  18. Yes to all of these. In fact I usually became interested in them because of their unique titles. Great choices!
    Melissa (Books and Things) recently posted…Audiobook Review: Unravel Me by Tahereh MafiMy Profile

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

  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???
    Di @ Book Reviews by Di recently posted…Review: Chase the Dark – Annette MarieMy Profile

    1. AH thanks Di! Hope you’ll love all of these when you get to them 🙂
      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!
