#TopTenTuesday book blogging meme
There’s really nothing like a good weekly meme to get you back into the swing of posting regularly. Top Ten Tuesday was originally created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now being hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. I have vague recollections of a similar meme a few years back. Jana has compiled a handy list of upcoming topics to keep us all amused.
This week’s subject is Ten Extraordinary Book Titles. My interpretation of that is titles I enjoy saying out loud. I actually really like the way these titles roll around in my brain before exiting my mouth. I’ve read most of the books, and two are near the top of the TBR pile.
Observant readers will note that many of these extraordinary book titles are Canadian. I like to rep the home team when I can 😉
In no particular order:
Microserfs by Douglas Coupland
The Calculating Stars by Mary Robinette Kowal
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
The Edible Woman by Margaret Atwood
Neuromancer by William Gibson
The Library of the Unwritten by A. J. Hackwith
Monstrous Regiment by Terry Pratchett
Mona Lisa Overdrive by William Gibson
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
Two Solitudes by Hugh MacLennan
I know a lot of these titles are “old”, but there are a couple of very distinctive trends in book naming right now that I’m trying to avoid (ie: A _ of _ and _).
Feel free to drop a reply to let me know if you enjoyed any of the books listed above, or if you know of an extraordinary book titles I should be checking out!
