Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/ meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week we are talking about books with single-word titles, a topic I found strangely difficult at first until I stopped restricting myself just to books I’ve read and started including some of the books at the top of my TBR. I feel like so many books being released now have much longer names and so it was super interesting to just look at books that manage to use just one word in their title.
So here are ten books with single-word titles!
This is one of my old favourites and one that I don’t rarely talk about nowadays despite the fact that I loved this sci-fi adventure. The way this book is written is just so unique and makes this book really one to remember, and one that I will likely continue to reread for many years in the future.
One of the many books I was highly anticipating being released yet still haven’t read yet, this is definitely one that I will be putting on many TBR’s until I finally get around to finishing this series. It has been years since I read Everyday, and so to know that I can finally know what happens next and hopefully get some of my questions answered is something that is both so exciting and nerve-wracking to me.
This was my first ever graphic novel, and its fair to say that it was definitely a great first read in the genre as I adored the quirky nature of this fantasy story. I loved the art style and the uniqueness of these characters, and so I am grateful to this one for showing me how enjoyable graphic novels can be.
Its been over a year since I read the first book in this duology, so it is high time I dive into this one and finish off this series, of which both books happen to have single-word titles. I surprised myself with how much I enjoyed Warcross, and so I am hoping to have just as much fun reading the sequel.
This is another book that I don’t talk about nearly enough considering how much I adore it, likely because its very different from the majority of my reading. Its just a gorgeously subtle story about a young girl moving away from home and starting a life there, and it also has one of my favourite movie adaptations.
The second graphic novel on this list, and one that captured my heart from the offset as we got to watch Charlie and Nicks’ relationship develop and blossom throughout this book. The story was just so cute and heartwarming, and I am already in desperate need of the sequel after that ending.
I’m putting this one on this list purely to call myself out for not having read it yet, despite falling in love with the first chapter and putting it on numerous TBR’s. I am so intrigued by the concept of this fantasy that I am determined to get around to it at some point in 2020, otherwise I can see it sitting on my shelves forever.
A thriller that I actually fell head over heels in love with here, as it was creepy and atmospheric in all the right ways and kept the twists coming till the very last page. If you are looking for a book that will leave you in utter shock, then this one is definitely one to pick up!
My first Neil Gaiman book here, and one whose story-telling style I adored as it reminded me of an classic story or a childhood book whilst still being a gorgeously intricate and well-crafted novel. This one has definitely made me desperate to see what other gorgeous stories he has up his sleeves!
Its been way too long since I read a V. E. Schwab book, and so this is definitely one that I hope to get around to at some point in the next few months. Everyone seems to adore this one, and considering that I already know I am huge fan of V. E. Schwab’s writing style, there seems like no good reason for me to not pick this one up right this second.
