Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/ meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This weeks topic was actually meant to be top ten book I’d give different titles to, but after struggling to come up with many for that one, and after missing last weeks TTT, I decided to just do that topic instead as there are so many extraordinary book titles I want to talk about! I feel like extraordinary books titles are also something that is, as lot of things are with books, up to interpretation, and so alot of these are book titles that I love as they either sum up the story perfectly or just intrigue me so much that they draw you in before you even open the front cover.
So here are seven extraordinary book titles!
Even if I personally wasn’t a fan of this story, it doesn’t take away from the fact that the title is so good that I didn’t even get the reference at first, the title fits so well with the story. I also love how it instantly links the book back to the 80’s and the arcades and video games of that decade, both of which are so influential to this story.
I love this title because of its double meaning, both of which relate to two key aspects of the story, with the monsters being either her webcomic, Monstrous Sea, or the metaphorical monsters in her head. It really captures what this book is truly about, and so that is why I adore this extraordinary title so much.
I feel like this title is a classic for being so extraordinary as it’s whole premise, as well as that of the book itself, is that it tells you the ending right off the bat. I love the idea that despite it telling you what will happen, if you are anything like me you will still question whether it is actually telling the truth, just as the characters blindly hope that somehow Deathcast has got it wrong about the fact as well.
Not only do I adore the story, but I also adore the title itself, as it just perfectly describes both of our characters and the many different challenges and obstacles they face. Throughout the story it seems like both of them are stuck in many different imaginary cages, something which makes for both a heartbreaking and beautiful book in the end as they learn to overcome things and trust each other to help them do so.
This title perfect sums up the long journey that both you the reader and the characters themselves go on throughout this story. The only difference is that this journey is one of adventure and friendship that I absolutely loved going on, even if the end destination was a small, angry planet.
It may be my current obsession with this book that made me put on this list, but I truly adore this title as it instantly makes me curious as to what this story is about and who these characters are who could be villains. As this is a murder mystery story following 7 actors, it is also so clever as both the reader and other characters in the story are wondering if this group were villains or not.
This book is a thousand perfect notes itself, which is just another reason to love this gorgeous story and it’s title. Throughout this story Beck is constantly trying to play the perfect notes in order to please his mother, when the thousand perfect notes were inside his head all along if he were just allowed to express them instead of pushing them down.
What are some of your favourite extraordinary book titles?? Do you agree with my choices? Have you read any of these – what did you think??
