Top Ten Tuesday | Funny Book Titles

Happy Tuesday, bloggers!

Other than the cover design, the book title is the first element you see in book marketing. It’ll either make or break the book. So the title is supreme. Sometimes, you see your typical X of Y and Z, a meaningful title, or a funny one. I particularly love the last option.

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.

Top Ten Tuesday | Books I’d Give Different Titles To

Happy Tuesday, bloggers,

Did anyone struggle with this week’s topic? I can’t be the only one who had no clue on what to pick. Truly, an easy prompt is all I need. 😂 But we need to spice things up, yes?

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. The new prompt is books I’d give different titles to. I may work for a book publisher, but I might be a little rusty on book titles.

Even though I wasn’t sure what to choose, I hope the post is a fun read for you all!

Top Ten Tuesday | Frequently Used Words in Titles

I’ve struggled with this post. For one, this is the second time I’ve written it. Why? I forgot to save the blasted thing before my MacBook died. So I’m slightly cranky right now. Two, I wanted nothing more than to use the words “a,” “an,” and “the” because I love being an ass sometimes. And three, I’m just not feeling the topic. So this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, I’ve picked the top three words I typically see in a book title.

 

Girls, Girls, Girls

Gone Girl, Girl on the Train, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t mind the word “girl,” when it’s used correctly. But alas, people think a woman is a girl, and using the latter is a better substitute for the former. I can’t stand seeing it in an adult book title. Now, I’ve only watched most of Gone Girl and Dragon Tattoo movies, but I don’t feel the need to watch the rest, nor do I feel inclined to read the books/series.

 

King or Kingdom

Crooked Kingdom, To Kill a Kingdom, and Daughter of the Pirate King

Ah, my three favourite books. I’ll always feature and recommend these three. They’re that damn good. I just wish I had more sequels in these series.

 

Ash or Ashes

Kingdom of Ash, City of Ashes, and Ash Princess

You know what? I don’t mind this kind of title. It can go either way. As cheesy as it may sound, a society rising from the ashes will always entice me to pick up the said book. Or it can burn horribly and die, but I’m trying to be positive in this post (really, in this part of the post), okay?

And who’s excited for Kingdom of Ash?!

 

Throne or Thrones

Throne of Glass, One Dark Throne, and  A Game of Thrones

Do you know how many books have this word in it? Far too many. I honestly forgot until I went searching, then I had a hard time choosing which books to feature.

 

Queen

Red Queen, Daughter of the Siren Queen, and The Queen’s Rising

I’ve read only two of these books, and I loved them both, but queen is a touchy word in a title, I find. Either it works great for YA titles, or it just makes me want to run away from the book. But in this case, I might take a chance to read the last one. What are your thoughts on queeny books?
