TTT Super Long Book Titles

Top Ten Tuesday used to be a weekly post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. “It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.” This is definitely something I can understand and want to participate in.

This week’s prompt is super long book titles. I know there are books out there with really long book titles, but I never really thought about it until today. I ended up having to think back pretty far in my reading history to come up with some longer book titles, and even then I still didn’t come close to some of the extremely long book titles that are out there!

  1. Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret by Judy Blume – I can’t even count how many times I read this book growing up.
  2. A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court by Mark Twain – this was another book that I used to love to read as a kid! I had a little copy and I would read it all the time.
  3. From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg – this was another favorite of mine, although if I had to run away and stay in a museum as a kid, I would have picked the Museum of Natural History instead of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but still, the concept was a really cool one!
  4. Harley Merlin and the Mystery Twins by Bella Forrest – this is a series I can’t seem to stop reading, even if it isn’t exactly the best series out there. There’s just something about it that I can’t resist.
  5. Crescent City: House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas – I absolutely loved this book, even with the super long title. I’m so ready for the next book to come out already!
  6. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins – this was one of the more overhyped books of this year, and while I like the title, the book was a bit … underwhelming.
  7. The Improbable Journeys of Billy Battles by Ronald E. Yates – this is another long title (and one that I inevitably have trouble typing out), but it was such a great series! If you haven’t checked out these books, you totally should.
  8. The Curious Incident of the Dog In the Night-Time by Mark Haddon – my good friend recommended this one to me. I wouldn’t normally have grabbed this book, but it was such a good one.
  9. Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire – I always love seeing things from different perspectives, and seeing things from the POV of the Wicked Witch was incredibly interesting.
  10. World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks – Kristy at Caffeinated Fae recommended this one to me, and I’m listening to the audiobook of it right now. I’m so impressed by this one! It’s narrated by a FULL CAST and it’s such a cool story.

That’s all I’ve got – what are some of the longest titles you’ve read?

  1. The Ballad Of Songbirds & Snakes was so, so overhyped. I wasn’t sure about it when it was announced it was from Snow’s perspective and I should have listened to my gut – this was the most boring, disappointing book I’ve read this year.

  2. I had The Curious Incident of the Dog In the Night-Time on my list, too! The longest one I found was David Tung Can’t Have A Girlfriend Until He Gets Into An Ivy League College.
