It’s time for another Top Ten list from That Artsy Reader Girl. The topic this week was “Book Titles with Numbers in Them.” While of course, it would be easy to just randomly find 10 books with numbers, it makes more sense to me to choose books I’ve read or that I’m planning to read. And for a little added challenge, I tried to find titles with the numbers 1-10.
So without further ado:
1. One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus
I have not read this YA thriller that has been on my TBR list for about a month and a half, but I’m looking forward to it.
2. Do You Dream of Terra-Two by Temi Oh
This sci-fi book is also on my TBR list, and is one of the first I added based on the recommendation of another book blogger.
3. Maus II: A Survivor’s Tale by Art Spiegelman
I first read this book in high school, for my English class. It was on a list of books that were deemed “new classics,” and could be read in place of an older classic. I was especially fascinated by the Holocaust in high school, and hadn’t cared for most of the classics I’d read so far, so I jumped on it. Later, I read the first book as well. They contain not only a true account of the author’s father surviving Hitler’s Europe, but also show how he and his family cope in the aftermath, years later. It is depressing, but also enlightening and encouraging.
4. Thr3e by Ted Dekker
This Christian thriller has long been one of my favorite books, even after a recent re-read. Click here to see my review.
5. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
This is one classic I read in high school that I did enjoy. I plan to read it again someday. (This book has both a 4 and a 5 in it, which is why I put 2 books related to the number 2 on the list.)
6. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
I don’t actually have this book on my TBR list, but it’s on a back-up list of books I want to revisit in the future. I’m not quite sold enough to start this fantasy series soon, but may choose to add it to my list in the future.
7. The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton
This was the second book I read when I started making reading a regular hobby again back in July. I enjoyed it, and recommend it to fans of mystery and thriller books. Click here to see my review.
8. Eight Cousins by Louisa May Alcott
I have Little Women on my TBR list, and if I enjoy that (which I suspect I will), I will likely end up adding this to read as well.
9. Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
This fantasy novel first came onto my radar last Tuesday, when it was on the Top Ten Tuesday list of many people. I eventually decided to check it out, and then added it to my TBR list.
10. Ten by Gretchen McNeil
This YA mystery is on my TBR list only because of this week’s TTT. In figuring out what books I wanted to use, I searched for books with the word “ten” in the title, and found this one. Though some of the negative reviews give me pause, but I’m going to give it a try anyway.
Have you read any of these? What would you add to the list?
