Top Ten Tuesday: What's in a Name? | Books with Character Names in the Titles

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.


This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic:
Book Titles That Include Character Names

For some reason I thought this would be a tricky topic, but once I started perusing my Goodreads shelves... not so much. Turns out I've read plenty of books with character names in the titles. Who knew?

  5. My list was so long when I started it that I had to narrow down the criteria. There are a surprising amount of books out there with character names in the title. I haven't read any of the books on your list but Simon Vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda is on my to read list. Thank you for sharing!

  6. Simon, Daisy and Josh and Hazel made my list as well! I've heard a lot of great things about Rafe, I'll need to try that one out.

    1. Rafe was a fun one. I loved that there was no silly drama. Just two adults acting like adults - imagine that!

  7. This was a tricky topic for me for some reason. I guess I just don't read a lot of books with character names in the titles. I twisted the topic and focused on biographies/memoirs that I want to read.

    Happy TTT!

    1. Sometimes certain topics just don't work for me, either, and I do my own thing.

  8. Lydia Bird almost made my list, but I go backwards from last to first read. It was older read for me. Josh & Hazel -- they need a follow up book. I loved them!

  22. ooh this is such a unique list and what a topic. I have been wanting to read Archer's voice so badly and I really need to bite the bullet and do it. Its just so hyped that I am scared I won't enjoy it lol I also want to read Rafe as I have heard so many good things about Rebekah Weatherspoon.
