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.

Misty of Chincoteague by Marguerite Henry I was horse crazy as a little girl. (I still am but rarely find adult books about horses?) I read all the ponypal/thoroughbred/heartland type books but books about wild horses were my favourites.
