A few of my friends do TTT so I thought I would jump in on the fun TO try and cover up for my irregularities. lol🤣
I’ve decided to join the bandwagon and be part of these amazing fun book tags. Check them out below…
Teaser & Top Ten Tuesdays
Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Purple Princess of The Purple Booker.
Here are the rules:
1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a page
3. Pick out 2 lines that are SPOILER FREE
4. Name the title, author, etc.
However, it was also beginning to look like I would never breathe again. So technically I was dead. The lack of pulse and air intake could attest to this, but clearly I wasn’t dead because I was curled up on the floor thinking somewhat coherently and Oprah was in my house… Loc 401 (kindle edition)
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. you can find more info over on her blog if you’d like to take part!
This week’s topic is: Books I’d Give Different Titles To
This a bit Hard😅*I’m not so sure about this one. Titles are rarely things I have a problem with and I suck at giving titles! But lets see what I can do with this one.
1; THE MORTICIAN’S DAUGHTER: ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE by C.C. Hunter–I guess the way this title was arranged was just too much. It’s honestly too long a title for a book🤦🏾♀️ . I’d Probably have named it ” ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE” Don’t fault me please, I told you I’m terrible with titles.
2. A VAMPIRE’S SOUL by Carla Susan Smith. I honestly don’t know why I have an issue with this title😃 probably too cliche for me and might have been named something more creative. But I Absolutely loved this and of course it’s marvelous!!
3. AMERICAN ROYALS by Katharine McGee – another one I loved and read of recent! And yet another one I can’t recall how but I don’t like the title.
4.FAT GIRL ON A PLANE by Kelly Devos – I really enjoyed this novel, and I like having “fat girl” in the title but the whole title itself isn’t really indicative of the whole book, just a small part of it. and a little too direct. it’s okay if you like it but I don’t.
5. MY BIG FAT FAKE WEDDING by Lauren Landish Somehow, I feel this title is too self explanatory and leaves nothing to the imaginations. Please don’t Hate me Laura! I love your book I don’t just connect much with the tittle
6. VIOLET EYES by Debbie Viguie–a fairy tale retelling of The Princess & the Pea…weirdest title ever for it though. I think y’all will have to agree with me on this one. What do you think?
7. The Boy Who Followed His Father into Auschwitz
by Jeremy Dronfield Do you have any idea how hard it is to drop this book casually into conversation? THIS IS WAY TO LONG. What this book is about, is very self explanatory. I would title it: Walking into Auschwitz Or something more catching and creative.
And that is a wrap for today! This is my first take and I couldn’t really come up with more. but will do better next time with adequate preparation.
WHAT TITLES DO YOU HATE? Do you agree with any of these? Let me know in the comments!
