Top Ten Tuesday | Super Long Book Titles

Happy Tuesday, bloggers!

Book titles are a hit and miss for some readers. Either they’re great and also work, or they miss the mark entirely. And some are so bloody long that you don’t know how they got past the marketing meetings.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. The next prompt is super long book titles. Now some of these titles aren’t long, long. But they are longer than most.

Enjoy the post!

A Kingdom of Flesh and Fire

JLA is my new favourite author. I love this series and cannot wait to get into the rest of her books. My blogger squad convinced me to read it, and I’m hooked.

 

Anarchy at Prescott High

Ugh, Stunich. She’s a great author. She typically goes for the short and sweet titles, but with this series, she went all out, and I love this change.

 

 

The Princess Bride: S. Morgenstern’s Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure

You thought it was just the Princess Bride. No, this title has a subtitle I didn’t know about. And I feel ashamed with that knowledge. For decades I thought it was just the title and nothing else.

 

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

This book is one of my favourite books. I adore it. I recommend it. Hell, if I could, I would throw it at people so they could read it. However, it’s wonderful. The name itself is a joke in the book, and that’s why I love the name even more.

 

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

I admit that I’ve never read the books. However, I’ve watched the movie, so I get the appeal. The title itself is unique.

  1. Amazing list! I like your choices haha, I honestly hadn’t realised how long some of them get 😁 I tried this prompt but I eventually tried ‘ranking the Simons of literature’. Of which I thought there was a lot but turns out there isn’t really lol. I guess it’s also to do with names? It tenuous I know, but check it out if you want to see how Simon cowell ranks against Simon spier! https://hundredsandthousandsofbooks.blog/2020/10/13/ttt-ranking-fictional-simons-and-real-ones-i-ran-out/
