Top Ten Tuesday: (Five) Books With Numbers In the Title

Created by and with thanks to That Artsy Reader! This week’s theme is surprisingly prevalent in thrillers, as it turns out…



1. One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus
Honestly, they had me at the elevator pitch: The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars. Who else is excited for the upcoming TV adaptation?

2. Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus
I haven’t read this one yet, but doesn’t the sheer number of numbers on that cover make it perfect for this prompt?

3. Twelve by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
I loved the series, and I love when authors go back and revisit their characters years on into their lives. Thirteen, anyone? Please?

4. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
Do we count this as a thriller? It’s thrilling to me…

And finally, one non-thriller:

5. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
God, I love everything about this book–but I already said why here!


Why do you think so many thrillers use numbers in their titles?

  1. I need to get to The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. True Confession: I keep getting it confused with The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle! I think I want to read them both, though, so it’s all good.

    My list is here—

    Happy TTT!
