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.

I need to read People We Meet on Vacation. I read Emily’s novel last year and didn’t love it, but I’d like to give another of hers a chance! 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland last week.

I just got a copy of THE READING LIST in the mail yesterday. I wasn’t sure if it was fiction or non- based on the title – either way, I would have been interested!

That is completely fortuitous, can’t wait to hear what you think of it.

I’m reading The Song of Achilles at the moment, it’s been good, but I liked Circe more. The Midnight Library kind of disappointed me, it’s a cool concept but the book itself didn’t quite live up. Lore was the same, I really loved the idea but was kind of disappointed in the story itself. I still need to catch up with the second book in the Good Girl’s Guide To Murder series but I’m slightly scared by the title for the third book. I’m so excited for A Lesson In Vengeance, it sounds so good.

That’s good to know about The Song of Achilles, hopefully I won’t be disappointed.

The Reading List has me intrigued as well 🙂

Apparently we have a lot of crossover on our TBRs! Although I recently read The Midnight Library and just finished The Song of Achilles a couple of days ago, so I’d definitely say to give those a read – they’re both fabulous.

Siri, Who Am I? sure does sound interesting.
