Top Ten Tuesday: Long Titles

Genres: Fantasy, Romance, Science fiction
top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s Top Ten list is long titles. Now Goodreads could have been a champ and allowed me to export a list of books I’ve read this year. But no. Which means I’m going with the very unscientific method of eyeballing it. That makes my inner data nerd cringe but whatevs. On we go!

List of books with long titles

I pulled this list of long titles from the books I’ve read this year and a few from last year.

A Universe of Wishes: A We Need Diverse Books Anthology

First up is A Universe of Wishes: A We Need Diverse Books Anthology. It’s a fantastic, diverse collection of stories by amazing authors such as Libba Bray and VE Schwab! Due out January 2021. Preorder it now!

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet

Next up is The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers. The first book in a series; it’s is perfect for Firefly fans. Ragtag group of found family traveling across the universe.

The House in the Cerulean Sea

Third on my list is The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune. Which is possibly my favorite read this year. A found family, romance, fantasy. To channel Olaf from Frozen, I like warm hugs and this book is a fabulous warm hug.

The Secret French Recipes of Sophie Valroux

Fourth on my list is The Secret French Recipes of Sophie Valroux by Samantha Verant. This charming start all over story is about self-discovery and delicious French cookery.

Next up is Vanessa Yu’s Magical Paris Tea Shop by Roselle Lim. Another charming story about a woman finding herself in France. Vanessa can read people’s futures but she doesn’t want to use her gift.

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue

Seventh is The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by VE Schwab. Would you accept a bargain to live forever? What if it meant no one could remember you? Not your family, friends, or lovers. As soon as you’re out of sight, all memory of you is gone. This book is SO good!

The Ten Thousand Doors of January

And number ten is The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix Harrow. This was one of my favorite books of 2019. A beautifully written portal fantasy about discovering where you belong. And that cover – all of the hearts for it,

So, that’s my list of books with long titles. What’s a book you’ve read with a long, mouthful of a title?

    There seem to be a lot of long titles this year. The Becky Chambers books always have long and charming titles.

    Oh, I loved The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet so much! And of course a classically long book title!

      Doesn’t it though? Some publishers understand eye appeal.

    I looked at the length of the titles of books I’ve read, too. The most I came up with was 8. Most of the books I read this year had three-word titles, which makes sense since I read a lot of mysteries and thrillers.

    Happy TTT!
