Top Ten Tuesday Twenty One – Top Ten Frequently Used Words In YA Fantasy Titles

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/ meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This weeks topic was one I was both really excited and really nervous about, as it is such a different and unique topic that I was worried I wouldn’t really be able to create a list for.Β  However, after sitting down and having a good long stare at my bookshelves, as is usually the way I come up with my answers for TTT’s, I soon found myself with a fairly long list of words that I noticed seem to crop up quite a lot in YA fantasy titles.

And so here are 10 frequently used words in YA fantasy titles!
