TTT: One Word Book Titles

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

I was not feeling the TTT prompt this week (super long book titles) because I couldn’t decide what made a title super long…or if subtitles counted. The whole debate got very out of hand in my head. So I settled it by deciding to be contrary.

Instead of long book titles, I’m doing my favorite books with one word titles.

  1. Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer
  2. Caraval (Caraval #1) by Stephanie Garber
  3. It by Stephen King
  4. Dracula by Bram Stoker
  5. 1984 by George Orwell
  6. Vicious (Villains #1) by V.E. Schwab
  7. You (You #1) by Caroline Kepnes
  8. Motherhood by Sheila Heti
  9. Touch by Courtney Maum
  10. Charm (Tales from the Kingdoms #2) by Sarah Pinborough

  1. Great! I still have such a soft spot for Cinder.

  2. Hannah says:

    That’s a good compromise! I am partial to short titles or one-word titles myself, long ones seem so intimidating!

  3. I had the exact same debate with myself before throwing all caution to the wind and just saying, “I’ll know a long title when I see it.” But I love your twist on the theme this week! There’s something fun about one word titles—so mysterious and evocative! I mean, come on. It? How much more tempting can you get with a title?
