October 24: Top Ten Unique Book Titles
I’m not sure I really believe in “unique” book titles as such, but there are certainly those that are full of intrigue and mystery. This week’s list comprises ten books on my TBR list that have truly magical and marvellous titles.
1. An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
John Green’s books always have amazing titles: The Fault In Our Stars, Turtles All The Way Down etc etc. How does he think of them?
2. The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton
By the title alone, this novel sounds super mysterious, and for some reason reminds me of books like The One Memory of Flora Banks and The Raven Boys, I don’t know why!
3. History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera
Having finally read, and loved, an Adam Silvera book last month (They Both Die At The End – another fabulous title) I am so on board with reading his back catalogue.
4. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
I’m not sure why, but the longer the title the more interesting I find it; and the fact this one has ancient philosophers makes it doubly exciting.
5. The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli
It’s not quite as interesting as Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda, but I’m intrigued to uncover the concept of this novel.
6. The Gentleman’s Guide To Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
Who wouldn’t want to read a book about vice and virtue? It sounds scandalous and oh so wonderful.
7. My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Wanga
This book has been on my TBR for so long that I have completely forgotten the premise. Regardless, it does have a cool title.
8. The Long Way To A Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
I love a good sci-fi novel (I’ve been reading more and more lately) so I’m looking forward to finally getting to this series, which was first recommended to me by a friend (hey, Alice!)
9. The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald
This novel has been on my TBR since before it was featured in Richard and Judy’s Book Club, but as is typical other books have pushed their way in front. Will rectify.
10. A Quiet Kind Of Thunder by Sara Barnard
I love a good oxymoron! I’ve heard great things about Sara’s novels, so I’m going to get to this one when I’m in the mood for a YA contemporary.
