Long Book Titles | Top Ten Tueday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl to bring bookish friends together. A new topic is posted each week. It’s time for a freebie tuesday, where you get to choose your own list (or at least I hope that was the purpose). So I chose the top ten long book titles I’ve read or want to read. Some are spot on, other hilarious. 

What I talk about when I talk about running by Haruki Murakami

Part running diary, part everything else including writing, I completely recommend it.

Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

A lovely and gay summer romance story, with the best and most exhausting title to write. I can’t count how many times I’ve looked up the spelling of Aristotle, even after having read about the philosopher for so many years in school

Good Omens: the nice and accurate prophecies of Agnes Nutter, witch by Terry Prachett and Neil Gaiman

An okay book with spot-on title

Three books on my TBR:

Do androids dream of electric sheep? by Philip K. Dick

The girl who circumnavigated fairyland in a ship of her own making by Catherynne M. Valente

Everyone’s a aliebn when ur a aliebn too by Jomny Sun

The hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy by Douglas Adams

A classic that I took way too long to read, with a nice long title.

Fantastic beasts and where to find them by J. K. Rowling

I remember loving this title, then the movies over-used it

I’d tell you I love you, but then I’d have to kill you by Ally Carter

I love the book titles of this young adult spy series, the books themselves are nearly able to live up to them, which deserves a slow applause.

Simon vs. the homo sapiens agenda by Becky Albertalli

I put off reading this book for too long, mostly because of hearing it was a “coming out” story and the weird title. I still don’t think the title was a good choice, even if I understand it now, but the story was so amazing with characters you can relate to. A really good young adult book, in every way. And so gay.

    This is a super clever idea! All I can think of to add is Christopher Moore’s “Lamb: the gospel according to Christ’s childhood friend Biff” or something to that effect, it’s been a minute.
