Books I Loved with Character Names In the Titles

20220201 Books With Character Names In The Title

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

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

Today we’re talking about books with character names in the titles. At first I thought this would be a tricky one, but eventually it turned out I actually already read quite a few books that have one or more character’s names in the title. So I decided to focus on my favorite reads amongst them all. Here we go!

The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman

Date Me, Bryson Keller by Kevin van Whye

From Lukov With Love by Mariana Zapata

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren

Dear Aaron by Mariana Zapata

Felix Ever After by Kacen Callender

Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Eliza and her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

  1. Simon of course! I’ve heard great things about Felix Ever After.

    1. Simon will always be a fave <3 Felix was great too, would definitely recommend.

  2. I haven’t read any of these. I do have Taylor Jenkins Reid on my TBR list at some point.

    1. Hope you’ll love TJR when you try her books!

  3. Eliza and her Monsters made my list too! I really should get around to giving The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo a try.
    My TTT

    1. Hope you’ll love Evelyn Hugo if you decide to give it a try!

  4. I looked at books that were on my TBR still and I had a tough time coming up with a list! I did have Felix Ever After on there. I love so many that you’ve included on your list (esp. TJR’s books)! 😍 Great list!

    1. I’m lucky I had so many on my read list, I think the TBR would indeed be a lot trickier!

  5. I’ve heard good things about Felix Ever After for sure!

    My post:

    1. It definitely deserves the hype!

    Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli is one of my favorite books!

    1. Mine too! It’s such a great book, I love it 🙂

  7. Sophie @BewareOfTheReader says:

    I will do just like you and add the difficulty of books I have read!

    1. Looking forward to your post, Sophie!

  8. I had Daisy Jones, too. But I’m mad at myself for not using so many of the ones you did! How did I not use a MZ title?!?!

    1. And then I looked at my list and realized I did use MZ titles. HAHA. I’m tired. I completely forgot who I had one there.

      1. Haha I totally understand! 🙂 Gotta love those MZ and TJR titles!

        1. Yes! They’re all so good.

  9. What a great list! Loved both Evelyn and Daisy!

    1. Evelyn and Daisy were both pretty unforgettable!

  10. There are several here that I loved: Evelyn Hugo, Simon, Daisy Jones, Josh & Hazel. I’m determined to read something by Mariana Zapata this year!

    1. I still have a lot of Mariana Zapata to discover but I did absolutely adore those I already read, so hope you will too!
