I love nothing more than a book whose title catches my attention. I can’t help it. Some titles are pretty straight forward, others keep you guessing and wondering about what the heck the book is about! So much so that you just have to pick it up and find out for yourself!
Today, I’m going to be sharing with you the ten books whose titles caught my attention for one reason or another.
The Careful Undressing Of Love – I really thought that was just a beautiful title. I knew it was going to be a love and relationships, but from that title, I knew it wasn’t going to be typical.
The Sun is Also a Star – I felt like this title reminded me of facts that we often forget. For example, that our bright shining sun is really a star. I feel like, in a way, after reading it, this book reminds us not to forget about what is important to us.
Claymore – I didn’t know who or what a Claymore was until I stumbled upon this book on my library’s shelve. With my curiosity piqued, I picked it up because I wanted to know. And I suggest if you want to know, you pick it up too!
Moxie – I love this title as much as the book itself. It’s a reminder to me that we should all possess a certain amount of moxie. Seriously, it’s not a motto, it’s a lifestyle!
Kill the Boy Band – Music equals life in my book, and all of us hardcore music lovers have been through our boy band loving phases (NKOTB and Hanson represent!!). From the title alone, I thought this would be the total music lovers book about what it means to be a fan(girl) of a famed boy band. Turns out … I was wrong! It’s about what goes wrong with being a fan(girl) of a boy band … and I enjoyed reading it!
Love & Gelato – I travel … a lot. And I’ve been to Italy. And I found that love and gelato (and the love of gelato) go hand in hand!
The May Queen Murders – I love the imagery that this title evoked when I first laid eyes on this (beautiful) book. I thought it would be beautiful and heart-wrenchingly horrific. It was both of those things.
27 Magic Words – this title spoke to me simply because of the power of words, and the hold they have over us. To me, it just shows that words are more than that.
Daughters Unto Devils – again, the imagery this title evoked. And that cover! I was certain it was going to be an A+ horror read. I was right!
