Good morning, fellow bookworms. We have reached Tuesday and that can only mean one thing: it is time for Top Ten Tuesday! A weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, who each week assigns a new topic to inspires us to create a top ten list based on a it. This week’s topic is:
Extraordinary Book Titles (submitted by Elise @ A Book and a Cup)
I thought this week’s topic was a little ambiguous – What I mean by that is: what makes a book title extraordinary? Is it how good it is? How unique it is? Could be different things for different people, so I have decided to go for some books with great, memorable, out-of-the-ordinary titles. Without further ado, here are my top ten extraordinary book titles:
- The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
- The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis
- Do Android’s Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick
- The Wind Through the Keyhole by Stephen King
- The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
- A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowen
- We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
- Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury
- Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death by M. C. Beaton
- When God Was a Rabbit by Sarah Winman
Some great books here and it would also seem I favour the looong titles as extraordinary! Come back next week for another topic and list. Bye for now!
Before you go, I would love to hear from you, so tell me what extraordinary book titles can you think of?
