Top 10 Tuesday Turns 10!

Created by and with thanks to That Artsy Reader! This Tuesdayโ€™s prompt is in celebration of the 10th birthday of Top Ten Tuesday ๐Ÿฅณ 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!



1. Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter
Every other sequel in the series has a spy-related pun for a title: Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy, Only the Good Spy Young, etc. I cannot think of what pun this is, and it’s always bugged the hell out of me.


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!

  1. Great list! Summer Lovin’ would have been a MUCH better name for that anthology. I know what you mean about Crooked Kingdom – I quite like it as a title, but if it weren’t for the similar cover art it wouldn’t be obvious just by the titles that it and Six of Crows were two halves of the same story.

  2. What a great post! I totally agree with Summer Lovin’. That would have been perfect. ๐Ÿ™‚
