Created by and with thanks to That Artsy Reader! This Tuesday’s prompt is in celebration of the 10th birthday of Top Ten Tuesday 🥳 since I only started participating this year, I went back through the list to find an old prompt I wish I’d got to do, and so I give you:
Five Books I’d Give Different Titles To, from the October 2019 prompt!
2. Summer Days and Summer Nights, edited by Stephanie Perkins
It’s an anthology of stories about summer love, and they don’t think to call it Summer Lovin’?
3. The Girl’s Guide to Summer by Sarah Mlynowski
This was originally titled I See London, I See France, but the UK publishers decided to abandon the good title for… Reasons, I guess? The original works on so many levels–it’s funny and tongue-in-cheek because of the rhyme it’s taken from, and appropriate because it’s a global road trip–but the retitle makes it sound like a cheesy 00s tween ghostwritten thing, and I hate it.
4. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
I love this title, I just almost wish that as a sequel, it was something else of Crows. Seven? I don’t know.
5. Frostbite by Richelle Mead
This one niggles me solely because, misleading cover art aside, it’s the only book in the entire series that’s spelled with one word instead of two. Why?
Happy 10th birthday, TTT!
