Every other week we’ll have a Top Ten Tuesday. This bookish meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010!
This week’s theme is your top ten unique book titles. This one was actually quite hard, what qualifies as a unique book title? So I went with titles that spoke to me and got me interested in the book! Let’s get to it.
1.Snow Like Ashes – Sara Raasch
This might not be the most unique title but it definitely intrigues me! Snow like ashes, what does that even mean? That title in combination with a stunning cover had me hooked.
2.Stalking Jack the Ripper – Kerri Maniscalco
Another intriguing title. Are we talking about the actual Jack the Ripper? Why is this person stalking him? Do they know who Jack is? So many questions from the title alone.
3.The School for Good and Evil – Soman Chainani
I feel like I could just copy paste my comments haha. But as soon as I saw this title I wanted to read the book. A school for good and evil, how awesome does that sound? Also sounds like there will be magic involved somehow, and I looooove me some magic. Probably also a ton of villains, more stuff for me to like!
4.To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before – Jenny Han
Especially when combining that title with a super cute cover and a lovely blurb you’ve got a MUST READ for me! The title sounds like she’s writing something to all the boys she’s loved before and that could be so me.
5.Wink Poppy Midnight – April Genevieve Tucholke
Another title that has you guessing about things right away. And then you find out Wink, Poppy, and Midnight are names and that just makes it more intriguing somehow. However I was quite dissapointed in this book and it couldc’t live up to his title.
6.How to lead a life of crime – Kirsten Miller
Since the day I’d heard of this book, I wanted to read it. This title is super intriguing for me and after reading the blurb I just know this is a book for me. It took me a while before I finally got a copy of this book. But as soon as I did I read it in now time!
7.I Hate Fairyland Vol 1: Madly Ever After – Skottie Young
Now who can read this title and NOT want to read this comic right away?! Same as with The School for Good and Evil this book just screams for my attention. And I got questions! Who is this person? Why does he/she hate Fairyland? And why is he/she here?
8.The Sin Eater’s Daughter – Melinda Salisbury
Now this got me really curious! I wasn’t sure what a Sin Eater was and definitely not what made her daughter so special. I had a vague notion of what a Sin Eater was, and a title like this gets me really interested.
9.Adorkable – Cookie O’Gorman
Okay, this one might not be super unique, since there’s a book with the exact same title…. However! This is a title that works. I’ve got warm and fuzzy feelings just thinking about this novel and it’s title. It’s the perfect title for this book and I simply LOVE this title (and also this book ;)…)
10.The Rest Of Us Just Live Here – Patrick Ness
When you know what this book is about it becomes even more unique! In this novel the focus isn’t on the Chosen One but on the other kids in that town, classmates from the chosen ones. You read little updates from the chosen ones at the start of each chapter but the rest of the novel is from the POV of a group of teenagers that knows the chosen ones but doesn’t really interact with them.
So that was a quick Top Ten Tuesday! I had a really hard time picking all these titles. That’s why I went with a slight modification to the programm… All the books mentioned are book I did actually read, Wink Poppy Midnight was the only book out of these 10 I was dissapointed by! Quite a good score I would say. What is the most unique title you can think of?
