Top Ten Tuesday: Books With Single-Word Titles

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!
