Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is Top Ten Unique Book Titles. Well, it is something interesting, isn’t it? Titles play a main role towards generating the curiosity among readers for a book, in my opinion. While some titles are simple giving the basic story of the book while some are created in a mystical way and its relevance occur only if you read the book. I like the later category as it allows me to explore the different meanings that the title can deliver.
Titles actually seem fun but I think they are the most challenging and difficult thing to think of. I wish more writers used them creatively to their advantage. I think a title should not be too revealing and should attract the readers towards itself.
Today, I am listing such 10 titles that I think are unique. I have tried to include the recent titles that I have read along with some others that I wish to read soon. And before you go further, I must warn you, a huge John Green syndrome is coming. Sorry, I can’t help it. He always use the craziest titles 😀
Top Ten Unique Book Titles
Just admit it, isn’t it the most intriguing title ever? I mean, it doesn’t make any sense at all, until you actually read it. And when you read it, then it’s like “the perfect title”. I loved this book and my review is scheduled to go live tomorrow (make sure to check it out). I can’t tell how much I loved it. It is definitely my favourite of the year 😀
This title was something that made me think that maybe it is a story set in Alaska but I forgot it’s John green 😛 he is the king of metaphors. Alaska was actually a girl. Could you have imagined it in the first place? I certainly didn’t. Though I read Looking for Alaska just last month, I pretty enjoyed it, providing that I would have enjoyed it much more if I would have read it like 3-4 years back.
I still haven’t read this book and I don’t know when I’ll read it, but the title certainly is catchy. It’s almost rare that we see repeating words in the title, but John certainly has a way to surprise. I know, it is not the best work of John Green as many acclaims, but still, someday I have to read it simply because it’s John Green 😛
Ahh, one of my favourites. I can’t tell you how much I love this book? The title itself is painful and is pouring multiple emotions. Though this title itself is not written anywhere in the book, the storyline perfectly compliments it.
This title is something unique and unthinkable for me. I mean who can use a word like “Abundance” with a girl’s name like she is an object, and still manages to show it perfectly? Just John green 😀 I have started the book but haven’t finished it yet, as the plot itself is not that compelling. I hope I can finish it soon.
Okay, I guess enough ranting about John Green 😛 Let’s see the other titles.
This title itself doesn’t reveal anything about the story. In fact, there is just a single a line in the book that contains this phrase. Though I like this title because of its uniqueness, I think it doesn’t have much relevance to the story somehow. It felt kind of empty?
When I first heard about this title, it felt as if it is a humour book. I still haven’t read it (but I mean to read it soon) but have heard that it is kind of opposite to humour. I have heard great things about this book. And yes the title does play a role in its being perfect.
I haven’t read this either (and I am not sure if I’ll ever read it?) but I just loved the movie. It was so hilarious. Ans surely the title is amazing. Just imagine, a devil really wearing the Prada 😀 I’m laughing.
Milk and Honey was the first modern poetry book that I read and I haven’t expected it to be so tensed given the title. From the title, it appears to be a rather flowy and sweet read but it was just opposite.
This is a book which recently got so much attention just because of its title. I mean this title instead of attracting people, is making them not pick it up (especially the people who don’t read erotica). But trust me, this is one of the best books that I read this year. A title surely can mislead the audience 😀
Pin it for later ♥
