Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. Join us every Tuesday to see MBJ’s Top Ten Listicles!
Hello fellow readers! This week we are taking a look at books we want to read based on the title. We didn’t do a lot of research on the individual books when we put together this list; we just looked at the titles, and if they raised our interest, they made it into today’s post.
Lore by Alexandra Bracken
This title intrigues me with its simplicity and the connections that it has to myths and legends. Lately, I have found myself drawn to older texts, texts that deal with the discussion of myths and legends and texts that turn those myths on their head.
As Good as Dead (A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder #3) by Holly Jackson
Carmen and I do not read mystery, well Carmen reads cozy mysteries, so this title should not have made the list. But I like the way it sounds, and I like the series title even more. What do y’all think?
The Reading List by Sara Nisha Adams
I’m fascinated by this title because my reading list is never-ending. The title seems so meta; I can’t help but wonder what the contents will be like.
The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
I love libraries, so any book title with library or librarians or the suggestion of either automatically piques my interest.
People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry
I’ve met some pretty intriguing people on vacation that I still stay in touch with. I wonder what kind of people the main character (MC) meets on vacation. I’m also interested to see where they go for vacation. Is it somewhere I’d want to visit? Many questions go through my mind when reading this title.
The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
Based on my recent interest in mythology and reading Homer’s The Iliad, this book and its title intrigued me. Also, the author, I read Madeline Miller’s Circe and heartily enjoyed it, so hopefully, I will enjoy this book when I read it.
A Lesson in Vengeance by Victoria Lee
This title strikes me as bad-ass. It seems like it will be a dark and twisty Young Adult fantasy, and I am there for it.
Siri, Who Am I? by Sam Tschida
I thought this title was very interesting because of the existential questions that it raises and the fun it pokes on people’s reliance on technology. From the synopsis, I gather that it is a mystery about the deception inherent in social media.
Spoiler Alert by Olivia Dade
This title intrigues the fan in me. I love and hate spoiler alerts when I’m watching TV or reading. That this book is centred around fandoms and fan fiction is very appealing to me.
Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore
This book has been on my TBR for a while, and it is all because of the title. I hope this will be a really funny look at religion and what we think Christ’s life was like.
