Top Ten Tuesday: Extraordinary Book Titles

Hello everyone! I took a two days long break from the #Blogtober challenge due to my mental health but I’m back now!

I needed some time off social media and as fun blogging is, it can also be draining. I’m feeling much better now and I like not having the pressure of maintaining the streak so I’m glad I did it instead of pushing myself.

Without further ado, let’s get to today’s prompt!

October 15th: Extraordinary Book Titles (submitted by Elise @ A Book and a Cup)

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and you can find weekly topics on her page.

πŸ”– Monstress by Marjorie M. Liu

29396738._SY475_Monster would never have so much power as a title but Monstress hooks me right off.  It creates the image of a powerful woman. Unhinged powerful woman. Morally gray powerful woman. Misunderstood powerful woman.

So many possibilities and it’s only one word.

πŸ”– The Brilliant Death by Amy Rose Capetta

34198648._sy475_Another book to hook me with just the title. Because how can the death be brilliant?

Those clashing words intrigue and tempt you to ask that question. They lure you in so you can come and find out. 

πŸ”– The Art of Escaping by Erin Callahan

38338238._sy475_The Art of Escaping is a book about the art of escapology but it also refers to the MC’s social anxiety and making yourself scarce when faced with people. It’s about escaping yourself sometimes. Escaping your past. Escaping the truth.

Couldn’t find a better title if I tried.

πŸ”– Spellbook of Lost and Found by MoΓ―ra Fowley-Doyle

30079439I love how it promises magic and some philosophical aspect and letting go of things and maybe finding yourself and your place and  a bit of a pretensional voice to it? 

I love it managed to pack so much into so few words.

πŸ”– Dark and Deepest Red by Anna-Marie McLemore

44218347._SY475_Red is associated with so many things — it easily brings up images of both blood and love. It’s good for ambiguity in the title. And many used that, let’s be honest.

Yet, this one still manages to sound original and intriguing?

πŸ”– These Witches Don’t Burn by Isabel Sterling 

36484081._SY475_It sounds fun. It tells me there are witches. It refers to the bloody history of burning women for witchcraft. It promises no such death here.

What else do I need to know?

πŸ”– This is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar & Max Gladstone 

36516585._SX318_Who enjoys losing? Why advertise the losing part of the book then? And what’s the time war?

This title rises so many questions. It’s an instant intrigue and so fitting for enemies to lovers timetravellers romance!!

πŸ”– Run in the Blood by A.E. Ross

36672944._SY475_Ok, so there will be blood here. There will be running. 

And it’s in Imperative.

This title screams a d v e n t u r e. I feel a need to run for my life and knock out some asshats on the way every time I read it.

πŸ”– The Abyss Surrounds Us by Emily Skrutskie

24790901It’s dramatic. It suggests that they’re in a situation without an easy way out. Or any way out. It has ‘us’ included so it says that they are in this together somehow. Who? 

Come to find out, I guess.

πŸ”– Wilder Girls by Rory Power

42505366Who doesn’t love wild girls? If that person exists, I don’t need to know them anyway. But they’re not only wild but wildrer. Wilder than who? Or what? 

Intrigue. Intrigue. Intrigue.

What exciting titles are on your mind? Did my choices sound exciting to you perhaps?

  1. All of these titles are so great! I still don’t know where they get all these brilliant ideas. I need years to find a title for a book that I want to write πŸ˜‚
    I loved These Witches Don’t Burn. I listened to the audiobook and it was so great! The narrator did a great job πŸ™‚
