Top Ten Tuesday: (Five) Favourite Words

Created by and with thanks to That Artsy Reader! This week’s theme is about our favourite words, but I thought I’d give it a bookish twist: here’s a few words that must be among my favourites, because they feature most often in titles in my personal library!


1. Love: 18 hits
I’m not even a bit surprised this is the most-used word in titles I read. I am a romantic at heart, after all.

2. Royal: 11 hits
I’m also not super surprised at this one. That’s the Genovian effect, y’all.

3. Life: 9 hits
What struck me about this one is how often it was used in subtitles. And not even biographies!

4. Little: 7 hits
I didn’t realise, until I made this list, that I actually do really like the word ‘little’. That feels a very positive 180 from it being the word used to bully me as a kid, so that’s growth!

5. Wicked: 7 hits
What can I say? ’tis the season–but ’tis eternally the season for me.


What’s the most popular title word in your collection?

  1. I like your take on this week’s prompt! It’s cool to see what word comes up often for the books we own. I would be curious about my own. 😂

  2. Since I enjoy contemporary romance novels and novels with a solid love story, probably a lot of mine also have ‘love’ in the title. 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting my website today! Appreciate this.

  3. Very interesting list. It makes me wonder which words are most common in my personal library. I think “queen” or “king” would be high up and “fire.” I love the words that made your list. Even though I’m a romantic at heart, I don’t have a lot of books with “love” in the title. Hmmm. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  4. I like how you chose words for the prompt this week. This is something I would like to do at some point, but it would take a long time to list all the books in my library to figure it out! XD
