Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Unique Book Titles



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?

  1. Okay. This is the third time in a very short time that I’ve stumbled across “The Girl Who Drank The Moon”. I think it must be a sign for me to go and buy it.

  2. Until your list, I hadn’t heard of quite a few of these but now I’m totally intrigued! I am loving your list, though. So many new discoveries and some known favourites. Swoon! This weeks theme has been so fun.
