πŸ“š Top Ten Tuesday | Books I’ve Read with Numbers in the Title πŸ”’

Top Ten TuesdayHello my fellow bookworms! Today, I am taking part in this week’s TTT topic, which is: Books With Numbers In the Title. Having taken part in an almost identical TTT topic in 2019, I have really scratched my brain for another ten titles I have read, that are different to the ones I used before – luckily, some of my recent reads came to the rescue!

πŸ”’ The Story of the British Isles in 100 Places by Neil Oliver – A fascinating, ambitious and wide-ranging history of Britain wonderfully told by my favourite historian and long haired Scotsman. (review)

πŸ”’ No God But One: Allah or Jesus? by Nabeel Qureshi – The follow-up to Qureshi’s bestselling Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, that is a challenging but respectful comparison of Islam and Christianity. (review)

πŸ”’ The Four Loves by C.S. Lewis – An insightful and comforting non-fiction that explores the nature of love from a Christian perspective, from the celebrated scholar, theologian and author. (review)

πŸ”’ Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith – First and best instalment in a thriller series about MGB Agent Leo Demidov, as he investigates a series of gruesome child murders in the Soviet Union.

πŸ”’ Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne – The famous nautical adventure and classic science-fiction, that follows the journey of Captain Nemo aboard his futuristic submarine, the Nautilus. (review)

πŸ”’ A Street Cat Named Bob: How One Man and His Cat Found Hope on the Streets by James Bowen – The bestselling and heart-warming story of the life-saving friendship between a former drug addict and a stray cat.

πŸ”’ The Secret of Platform 13 by Eva Ibbotson – Yes, before Platform 9 3/4, there was Ibbotson’s inventive children’s novel about a secret doorway to a magical island, located under platform 13 of King’s Cross Station.

πŸ”’ Seven Stages by Geoffrey Trease – A fascinating history that explores seven influential figures from the stage – from Marlowe in 1622 to Siddons in the 1900s – which made it onto my My Top 10 Books of 2017.

πŸ”’ The Gospel in 10 Words by Paul Ellis – At a time when many are hearing mixed messages about the love of God, this very accessible Christian non-fiction is a welcome reminder of the good news revealed by Jesus.

πŸ”’ First of the Tudors by Joanna Hickson – A brilliantly researched and written piece of historical fiction, that had me enthralled from the beginning to the end in the life of the often overlooked Jasper Tudor. (review)

  1. Great choices! Child 44 was the first book I thought of when I saw the title of your blog post. It’s one of the few books I’ve enjoyed where I’ve enjoyed the resulting film too.

    1. I hope you enjoyed First of the Tudors as much as I did, Annelies and that you will have the chance to add more of these or other titles with numbers onto your read shelf soon. 😊

  2. Great topic and I enjoyed seeing your list. I’m thinking that’s been a category in the “What’s In A Name” book challenge before.

    1. Thank you Kelly, although I can’t claim credit for the topic, and yes it certainly has been a category in the What’s In A Name reading challenge. Well remembered! 😁

  3. That’s a great top ten! The only one of those I’ve read is First of the Tudors, which I enjoyed too. I have a different Jules Verne book on my list this week (Around the World in 80 Days) but I would like to read more of his books.

    1. Yay, I had Around the World in 80 Days on my previous list, so it’s fortunate I had read another Verne novel with a number in the title before this topic came up! 😁
