I love Top Ten Tuesday because it always has me thinking about topics I had never considered before! Most of the books I read have short titles, which makes sense as they are easier to remember. I often find myself tongue-tied when I am talking about all of the books on this list- the titles are just so long!
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
One of my favourite books ever, but I always have to think for a second when recalling the title! I always mix up the adjectives. Still a great title though, and an even better book!
The Seven and a Half Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton
The problem with this title is not only that it is long but that it is so close to The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo that is it almost impossible not to mix up the two. I cannot tell you how many times I have called this book The Seven and a Half Deaths of Evelyn Hugo. That said, this is one of my favourite mysteries and I cannot wait to read the author’s newest book, The Devil and the Dark Water.
The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix
This is a title that I always shorten to simply The Southern Book Club’s Guide whenever I am talking about it, and even that is a mouthful! Great book to read this time of year. I am so thrilled that vampires are back!
Hum If You Don’t Know the Words by Bianca Marais
I do not talk about this book nearly enough. It really is beautiful, and, although it is long, it is one of my favourite book titles ever.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
This is another intriguing title. Part of the reason I read this book to begin with was because the title caught my attention. I really need to read more from Neil Gaiman!
Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Note Dating by Christina Lauren
Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating is not my favourite Christina Lauren novel, but I know that I am in the minority and that it is well-loved. It has the perfect title though! I am actually reading Christina Lauren’s newest release, In a Holidaze, and it is cute so far!
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
It has been years since I have read Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. It really is one I should pick up again.
Things My Son Needs to Know About the World by Fredrik Backman
I was not the target audience for this book, but it would make for a great gift. The title says it all!
Me, Who Dove into the Heart of the World by Sabina Berman
I really enjoyed this book when I read it many years ago, but I always forget what it is called, which makes it difficult to recommend. It is a really lovely title though.
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer
This title is the biggest tongue twister on this list! I really have to think about this one when saying it out loud!
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
Despite being a long title, I do think To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is easy to remember. It is when talking about the sequels that I get all mixed up!
What is a book with a super long title that you loved?
