It’s Tuesday! Which means it’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday post from me. This week, The Broke and the Bookish prompted us to come up with ten unique book titles and for some reason I found it really hard to come up with a good list.

I was about to say that I’m not much of a book title girl, but that’s not actually true. Because after the cover, the book title is probably the first thing that attracts me. Although I have to say, that I hardly ever buy a book just because of a title. In that, I’m more of a cover buyer, I guess. 🙂

But. Long story short. I had a browse through my bookshelves and picked ten titles that are rather long and sound promising to me. 🙂

Top Ten Tuesday, Unique Book Titles

If you have a look at this list, I apparently have a thing for books by Lucys. Or maybe it’s that Lucys just come up with great book titles. 🙂

All in all, I have to say tough, that pretty much all of these books also have lovely covers and are books that I really enjoyed reading. I’m sure it would also be very interesting to go to a bookstore and have a look at what’s there. I’m sure that there are a lot of books I haven’t read yet with very promising titles. Especially the Fantasy genre has a lot of cool book titles, I believe. Bummer really that I hardly ever (more like never) read Fantasy books.

Have you read any of the books from my list? Or would you choose different titles? I’m curious to see what you’d come up with. So why not leave me a little comment with your picks or a link to your blog if you’ve done this weeks’ Top Ten Tuesday as well? 🙂

  1. Haha your comment about having a thing for books written by Lucy’s made me laugh! 🙂 These book covers and titles definitely make you want to pick them up – especially when you’re looking for a comfort read. This prompt is quite tricky – I’m not sure what I would have chosen. Maybe The Trouble with Goats and Sheep – I think it’s quite unusual and eye catching. Why is it you don’t read fantasy anymore? 🙂

    1. I was never that into Fantasy. Don’t really know why, tough. There’s just something about all the mystical stuff that has never really appealed to me. But I might be swayed if someone recommended a REALLY good book with a pretty cover to me 🙂

      1. I feel that way about science fiction books! Have you heard of Robin Hobb? Her books have a very good reputation – I’ve been meaning to get started. She has a huge collection called The Realms of the Elderlings, but there are sets of trilogies you can read alone if you don’t want to read the entire series. The latest covers (not the older ones) are also beautifully designed, in my opinion 🙂

        1. Also, after reading your post, I found some of these books available through the library audiobook service 🙂 I think they’ll be great to listen to whilst walking/jogging! Thank you for the recommendations!

        2. No. I’ve never heard of her. But just looked her up on Goodreads. And… mixed feelings 🙂 I don’t know if it’s something I would just have to start reading to get into it. But the whole thing with princes and witches and magic. I really don’t know 🙂 I love the element of magic e.g. in The Snow Child. But… You see. I really don’t know xD But am glad I could help with your jogging playlist 🙂 I also went to the bookshop today to check if they have Foxes Unearthed and Roof Toppers. They didn’t. But Amazon will xD

          1. Hahaha yes, I see what you mean about Robin Hobb’s books. I’ve probably mentioned the most difficult fantasy series to get into – sorry! I should read more of the genre and then come back to you 🙂 I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed The Snow Child – I can’t wait to read it for myself, maybe in December. Oohh lovely, are you a fan of foxes, too? 🙂

          2. My love for foxes has only developed recently. Maybe because of The Snow Child? I mean they are cute and everything, but I’ve always associated them with being intelligent, but very calculating and a bit mean? After reading The Snow Child tough, I feel like I would really enjoy a pet fox xD

  2. All of them have unique titles! The one that stood out for me is The Day We Disappeared by Lucy Robinson. We dissapeard, so what happened? I want to know. 🙂

    1. Haha 🙂 Well, you’re just gonna have to read for yourself? xD The story follows two women on their journey. One is throwing caution to the wind and starts a wild love affair and the other is trying to start her life over and escape her past. The book is full of secrets and the twist at the end is one that I did not expect. I love Lucy Robinson and her books. So I can only recommend you pick it up 🙂

Your comments mean the world to me as I love talking to you about the things that are dear to me. So please fire away!
