Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week there’s a new topic for a top ten list.
This week’s topic is Top Ten Unique Book Titles. It’s pretty hard to have an unique title, but here are some that I think aren’t super common.
1. Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin by Mariana Zapata – I know sometime names are used in book titles, but I think the unique last name makes this one stand out.
2. The King of Bourbon Street by Thea de Salle – I don’t think there’s that many books set in New Orleans, so the addition of a city specific detail is a nice touch.
3. A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares by Krystal Sutherland – Longer titles aren’t as common as shorter titles, so I think they qualify as unique for that fact.
4. A Taxonomy of Love by Rachael Allen – Love is a common word in some titles, but taxonomy definitely isn’t, so here’s this addition to the list.
5. Ivy Aberdeen’s Letter to the World by Ashley Herring Blake – The addition of Ivy’s unique name makes it stand out. And I just want to say that I love this cover!
6. Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas – I haven’t seen a book title like this before, so I’m saying it’s unique. My bad if there’s similar titles haha.
7. Love Is Both Wave and Particle by Paul Cody – Another book with love in the title, but the way it’s used is different.
8. Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia – There’s not that many books with monsters in the title, I don’t think. I really like the cover on this one too.
9. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon – The use of Indian names makes this one unique. I’ve never seen names like Dimple and Rishi, so I wanted to highlight that fact and praise it.
10. The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill – I really like this title, and it kind of just rolls off the tongue.
Have you read any of the books I listed here? If so, what’d you think of them?
