Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/ meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This weeks topic is one that I am strangely excited about, mainly because it somehow coincided perfectly with my first week of uni as a maths student! As it is my first week of lectures, I decided not to challenge myself particularly with this weeks topic, and simply to list ten books with numbers in the title instead of going for 1-10 or not including repeats.
So here are ten books with numbers in the title!
For some reason I am starting off with a pretty large number, with a book that I have a huge amount of love for! This story was so beautiful its in ability to mix more humorous and lighthearted moments with heavier subjects, as well as some gorgeously written characters. I highly recommend this underrated gem if you haven’t discovered it already.
Not only does this book include a number in its title, but so do all of the rest of the books in this series, so this one more than fits into this weeks topic. I finally got round to this one in August, and, despite not loving it, and still super excited to see where the story goes next!
This is the one book on my list this week that I have yet to read, something that I hope to change soon as it is on my TBR for Autumn. I am super excited to dive into another book by Taylor Jenkins Reid, especially because of all the positive reviews I’ve read of her latest release and the unique format it is written in, so hopefully I will enjoy this one as much as Evelyn Hugo.
Oh look, another Taylor Jenkins Reid book! Thankfully though, I have not only actually read this gorgeous story of Hollywood royalty Evelyn Hugo, but it was also one of my favourite reads of last year, and so one I would recommend for everyone to give a go, even if it is out of your comfort zone like it is outside of mine.
One of the few recent thrillers I’ve actually really enjoyed, I am very grateful for this book for making me realise how in love I am with small town settings. The atmosphere is perfect for this historical murder mystery, and with an ending that still gives me chills I am so glad I gave this one a go.
This is one of those times where I am so grateful for a TTT topic for reminding of one of my favourite books that I haven’t talked about in a while, especially as this is such an underrated story that I adored with all my heart. Its a beautifully story of love, friendship and acceptance, and I’m so happy that this week I have been given the reminder to continue declaring my love for this one from the rooftops.
Apparently lots of authors like to include large numbers in their titles, as this is the third book on this list with thousand in the title! This one is also quite relevant to my reading at the minute, as I am currently listening to the sequel, Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix on audiobook, and absolutely loving being able to return to this world. I adored this first novel, as we get to see Xifeng’s slow descent into evil in an attempt to become empress, and so I am hoping the conclusion lives up to it!
I feel like the number in this one’s title instantly tells you that it is a christmasy story, if you couldn’t already gather that from the very festive cover design. This is a sequel to Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares, but unfortunately I was nowhere near as much of a fan of this companion novel as I was of the first, so I think I’m just gonna stick to rereading the first when Christmas comes around.
This is the first book that came to mind when I saw this weeks topic, as not only is it one of my favourite fantasies, but it is also an insanely popular and hyped book that I am sure almost everyone has read by now. I am in love with both the story itself and the six main characters we follow throughout this supposedly impossible heist, all of whom I would never get bored of reading about.
Finally, here is a little bit of a throwback book, as I first read this book when I was slowly starting to get into reading properly rather than just rereading The Hunger Games an endless number of times. I remember having a very different opinion to everyone else on this series, as I actually enjoyed the later books as well as this one, so I would interested in going back at some point and seeing if my feelings have changed with my reading tastes.
Do any of your favourite books have numbers in the title? Do you notice any numbers that are more popular in book titles than others? Have you read any of these – what did you think?
