Top Ten Tuesday is a meme is hosted by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl . There are lots of Top Ten Tuesdays posts that I love to read but I only occasionally prepared (organized enough) to join. This is mostly because I am fairly terrible at remembering the full titles to books. But, this one, suggested by Kitty at Kitty Marie’s Reading corner is perfect for me since I always remember the full title when there is only one word. Here are a few of my favorite single-word titles.
In no particular order and the links will take you to a full review if you are interested:
Me by Elton John
Guts by Raina Telgemeier
Illuminae, Gemina, and Obsidio (The Illuninae Files) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
Circe by Madeline Miller
Canada by Mike Myers
Bob by Wendy Mass and Rebecca Stead
Angelmaker by Nick Harkaway
Echo by Pam Munoz Ryan
Austenland by Shannon Hale
I would like to give honorable mention to the following nonfiction books that appear to have a one word title but are really long-winded wonderful things instead.
Burnout: The Secret to Unlocking the Stress Cycle by Emily Nagoski and Amelia Nagoski
Snacks: A Canadian Food History by Janis Thiessen
Factfulness: Ten Reasons We’re Wrong About the World and Why Things Are Better Than You Think by Hans Roslin, Anna Roslin Ronnlund, and Ola Rosling
Tell me, please!
