Top Ten Tuesday

It has been forever since I participated in Top Ten Tuesday, but this week’s topic sounded very interesting.

Top Ten Tuesday is created by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl and it’s purpose is that you make a top 10 list on Tuesday out of the topics she provides. However, you don’t have to stick exactly to 10, you may also put more or less books/things on the lists. Moreover, you are allowed to give an “unique” spin to the topic whenever that works better for you. Well, let’s move on to this week’s list!

Today’s topic is: Books With Single-Word Titles. And trust me, there are a lot. So, let’s take a look at some of them!

All books by Marissa Meyer

Heartless, Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, Winter, Renegades, Archenemies, Supernova…… All books have a single-word title. I rated them all 5 stars, except for Heartless. That book didn’t work for me at all, so I had to DNF it.

The Slated triology by Terri Terry

Slated, Fractured and Shattered are the books within the Slated trilogy by Terri Terry. I read this trilogy last year and it really took me by surprise. I was a little reluctant as the first book has been released in 2012, but it didn’t feel so old actually. I rated all books 5 stars.

Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Skyward by Brandon Sanderson is another book with a single-word title. To be quite honest, Starsight, the sequel, fits this list as well. However, I enjoyed Skyward more.

Scythe by Neal Shusterman

Another book that really took me by surprise was Scythe by Neal Shusterman. I rated it 5 stars and I honestly didn’t expect to do so. this book has some mixed reviews. Thunderhead fits this list as well, but the final book in this series has a two-word title.

Verity by Colleen Hoover

I read this book earlier this year and I found it okay. Not bad, but not that exciting or nerve-wrecking either. I rated it 3 stars.

Unpregnant by Jenni Hendriks and Ted Keplan

This book received some criticism, but I’m still curious for it.

Uprooted by Naomi Novik

Not sure if I will ever read this book, I really didn’t like Spinning Silver by this author.

Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt

A Dutch book which has been translated into English and got an all-American ending. I still need to read this book, but I will read the original version.

Vox by Christina Dalger

I have been doubting whether to read this book, but I apparently will.

Stepsister by Jennifer Donnelly

A fairytale retelling which will get it’s Dutch release in March. However, I bought the English version quite cheap, so I will stick to that one.

Havenfall by Sara Holland

I will be ending this blog post with a book which will be released today, Havenfall by Sara Holland. I loved Everless, disliked Evermore and I’m extremely curious for this one.

Which book with a single-word title should have been on this list according to you?

  1. Too bad ‘Spinning Silver’ didn’t live up to the hype for you. It’s one of my favorites just like ‘Uprooted’. I’m very curious about ‘Havenfall’. I loved the other books by Sara Holland.
