top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.

 Today’s Topic: Favorite Book Titles

Ricki

1. I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

I'll Give You the Sun

Jude and Noah are twins and since their childhood, they have played a game where they bargain/trade parts of the world. I loved this aspect of the book, and it will stick with me.

2. Copper Sun by Sharon Draper

The title of this book sets the mood for the entire story.

3. More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera

more happy than not

I feel like this title captures the essence of many adolescents. I think about it often.

4. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

fault

Incorporating Shakespeare in a title always earns bonus points.

5. The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls

This book is a stunner, and the title feels just right. It makes me think of broken glass, fragility, and revealing truth.

1. Hurt Go Happy by Ginny Rorby

hurt

This title just captures the theme of the novel for me, and the time in the book where the title is explained makes me cry every time!

2. Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt

fish

The title of this books comes from one of my favorite quotes “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid,” and it fits perfectly with the book.

3. A Snicker of Magic by Natalie Lloyd

snicker

This title just captures the tone and fluidity and bit of magic within Natalie Lloyd’s book.

4. Better Nate Than Ever by Tim Federle

betternate

Federle’s Nate books are some of my favorite audiobooks I’ve ever listened to. Whenever I hear the title, I can hear it in Tim’s voice (he’s the narrator), and it immediately brings me back to the book. The sequel’s title is pretty awesome too!

5. Never Fall Down by Patricia McCormick

never fall down

Whoa! This book is so intense, and the title captures the pain, tiredness, sorrow, and resilience of Arn. Brilliant.

Which titles are your favorite?

  1. Great list! I didn’t understand the topic at first – thought it was favorite books. But this requires some thought – best TITLES. I never thought about book titles from that perspective. You guys came up with some great ones!
