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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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?
