Top Ten Tuesday: Unique Titles

Top Ten Tuesday: Unique Titles

When it comes to book titles, there do seem to be some common elements. Words like ‘queen’, ‘shadow’, ‘bone’, ‘storm’, and ‘star’, amoung others. As well as similar patterns, such as ‘The Daughter of Smoke and Bone’ and ‘A Court of Thorns and Roses’. Many are simply one-word titles that are obvious rather than poetic or mysterious. There are a few however that stand out in my mind as unique.

These titles might not leave the same impression on you but they strike a cord with me. I think a title should give you a feeling the moment you see it and resonates throughout the story as you read it – these titles did just that. They are all also excellent books. What titles have left an impression on you?

Top Ten Book Boyfriends

Top Ten Book Boyfriends

I’m posting this a little late and I realized I don’t have ten book boyfriends but here are my 8 swoon-worthy boys.

  • Ron Weasley from Harry Potter by J K Rowling
    He is and always will be my first and ultimate book boyfriend
  • Nikolai from Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
    Handsome, sarcastic and inventive = me swooning
  • Khalid from The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
    *heart eyes*
  • Gansey from The Raven Boys by Maggie Steifvater
    How could you not fall for a guy who loves his friends as much as Gansey?
  • Aeduan from Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
    He holds the title for dark and brooding
  • Carswell Thorne from Cress by Marissa Meyer
    Another boy who won me over with his snark. I’m beginning to sense a pattern here…
  • Nawat from Trickers Choice by Tamora Pierce
    One of my first book boyfriends, I adored him
  • Rhysand from A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas
    I can’t help it, the silver tongue, the big heart, the wingspan *wink*

Top Ten Tuesday: Fall TBR

Books On My Fall TBR

It was my goal to finish 9 series this year. So far I’m not doing very well with that goal, BUT, look at all these amazing finales I have to read this fall!

Sequels are another thing that I’m trying to make a priority, and this season they are all blue apparently.

And finally the two most beautiful books on this list and both companion novels that I have been dying to read all year. Words cannot describe how excited I am for the illustrations in TLOT.
