Top Ten Tuesday: Titles with Numbers (II)

It’s time for another Top Ten list from That Artsy Reader Girl. The topic today is “Books With Numbers In the Title.” It’s interesting to me that in the fairly short amount of time I’ve been doing these posts, I’ve done this topic before. But when I looked through the list of books I’ve read since then and my current TBR, I was able to easily come up with 10 more. Whereas last time, I decided to find 1 book for each number 1-10, this time I just went with any numbers. The first 7 books are in the order of when I read them, and the last 3 books I haven’t read, but are on my TBR.

1. Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
 See my review here.

2. 12 Days at Bleakly Manor by Michelle Griep
The 2nd book in this trilogy has a number in the title too (A Tale of Two Hearts), but I chose this one because I liked it more than the other. See my review here.

6. 4 Years Trapped in My Mind Palace by Johan Twiss
See my review here.

4. The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkein
See my review here.

5. The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line by Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham
See my review here.

6. Mayday at Two Thousand Five Hundred by Frank E. Peretti
See my review here.

7. Hill 568 by Ellen Emerson White
See my review here.

8. The Prisoner of Cell 25 by Richard Paul Evans
The rest of these books I have not read. This series was recommended to me by my husband.

9. I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore
I watched this movie long ago, but the only thing I remember about it is that I liked it more than I expected to.

10. Number the Stars by Lois Lowry
Since I ran out of books with a number in the title, have one with the word number! I read this in middle school, or maybe earlier than that, but I don’t remember it much. I plan to re-read it soon(ish).

Have you read any of these books? What’s on your list of books with numbers in the titles?

  1. I always love seeing Frank Peretti featured on any blogpost. I love his work, but it appears as if his work isn’t all that popular on the blogosphere. Glad to see you have it on your list!

    The rest of your list is a collection of diverse reads, I like that!

    • Peretti is my favorite author and appears on a lot of my lists. Though this is a first for that particular series. This topic, for me, definitely brought some some interesting books that are less often used for TTT.

    • A list like this definitely doesn’t stay confined to one or two genres, though as mentioned above, this topic did seem to bring out a lot of mystery/thriller books (on other lists, not on mine).

  2. Veronica Mars! I used to love love love that show. I have vague memories of the movie they made with fan crowdfunding — is the book based on that movie (or did the book come first)? Now I want to go watch that series all over again! 😍

    • The book takes place right after the movie. There’s a 2nd book too, which ties up at least one storyline that started in the movie. Then there’s the 4th season that they made most recently. At some point I plan to go back through the entire franchise chronologically, since when I read the books, it had been a while since I saw the movie.
