Top Ten Books With Single-Word Titles

Posted March 2, 2020 by Jana in Top Ten Tuesday / 20 Comments

Happy Tuesday, and welcome to another TTT! This week’s topic is books with single-word titles, and was submitted by Kitty from Kitty Marie’s Reading Corner. Long, wordy titles with lots of nouns and adjectives are pretty popular right now, so I thought it would be fun to talk about the simplest titles. The words “The” and “A” don’t have to count if you don’t want them to! I chose to focus on books I’ve read and would recommend.

Roomies by Christina Lauren
Hunted by Meagan Spooner
Caraval by Stephanie Garber
Boomerang by Noelle August
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
Atlantia by Ally Condie
Renegade by J.A. Souders
Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
Captivate by Vanessa Garden
Cress by Marissa Meyer

It’s kind of crazy how many fantasy and sci-fi books are in this list. I guess, at one point, short titles were popular for books of these genres! Now there’s so many A ____ of ____ and ____ or The Daughter of ____ and ____ titles that I can’t even keep track of them anymore! There’s just something nice about a short, simple title.

Which books did you include on your list this week?
Have you read and any of these? What did you think of them?

  1. Ooh I like atlantia and Renegade. I almost got Atlantia at one time because I thought the underwater setting sounded neat- never did read it though. I’ve never read Rebecca either, actually, now that I think of it…

  2. Ooh nice ones!! Caraval obviously went on my list too! This one was a lot of fun! I didn’t realize how many one-word titles I had! I remember Captive too! I liked that one. I think I have the sequel on my kindle still, but the third one was never made available to the US, at least I don’t think so. Though I did see last year that the first book was republished! I might need to go back and see if they did the rest too!

    I loved Hunted! <3 One o my favourite Beauty and the Beast retellings.

    Happy readings!

  4. I’ve read a grand total of 0 from this list! Have meant to read Rebecca for ages but never got around to it.
    My version of the list had a very Celtic flavour since March is Irish and Welsh reading month.
