Happy Tuesday everyone! I’m back with another Top Ten Tuesday, which you can learn more about here!
Today the topic is favourite book titles. I’ve talked a few times before about my favourite book titles, but I love titles so I’m always happy to talk about them.
Exit, Pursued by a Bear by E.K. Johnston: I just love this one. It’s such a ridiculous stage direction, and I think it’s such a funny title.
Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand: this may be the most powerful title I’ve ever heard? I’ve always been drawn to this title.
I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream by Harlan Ellison: apparently the author and stories in this anthology are very anti-woman which sucks, but the title is amazing.
The Man Who Was Thursday: A Nightmare by G.K. Chesterton: a man named Thursday definitely sounds like a nightmare tbh.
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou: again, another incredibly powerful title. You get so much emotion and understanding about this book from the title alone.
Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston: another title I just find so intriguing. I just like how it implies that we (or they, I guess) watch God and God is,,, uncomfortable? with that. Or at least unsettled. I like the thought of God being accountable to people.
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer: I just like the way this one sounds tbh.
Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret by Judy Blume: another one about talking to God. I guess I have a type. I never read this as a kid, so I definitely need to soon.
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy by John le Carré: I’ve just always loved the way this one sounds and how fun it is to say. Sometimes I just say it to amuse myself.
We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson: I don’t really know why I like this one so much. Maybe it’s because I always wanted to live in a castle.
So those are some of my favourite titles! Do you like any of these? Which ones? What are your favourite titles? Let me know!
