TTT #213 – What’s in a Name

Posted February 1, 2022 by Lillian in Features / 5 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookishย 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

Happy Tuesday y’all! Today’s topic is “Books with Names/Character Names In the Title.” At first, I was completely stumped so I went to Goodreads for help. I’m not sure why this topic threw me off, but it did. I have read a ton of books with names in the title that I have thoroughly enjoyed and will share some of my favorites below in no particular order. As always, covers/titles link to Blog, Goodreads, or Amazon (affiliate).

Top Ten Books With Names in the Title

  1. Meg & Jo by Virginia Kantra
    I loved this contemporary Little Women retelling. The first book features the two eldest sisters. The second one (which is on my TBR) features the youngest.
  2. Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore
    Set in the Graceling Realm, this one features a grown up Princess Bitterblue, who we met in the first book of the series. I remember enjoying this one and loving seeing the princess come to power.
  3. Broken Aro by Jen Wylie
    This is one of my all time favorite books/series that is still ongoing. It’s been about four years since the last book came out, and I promise it is worth the wait. I love adventure fantasy with a touch of romance, dash of suspense, and full of emotion. That is this one!
  4. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
    I could list every book in The Lunar Chronicles for today’s topic, but I thought I’d list my favorite of the series which is this one. I loved this one because it has a sweet romance at its core. Scarlet is awesome as is her fighting skills ๐Ÿ˜‰
  5. Cinder & Ella by Kelly Oram
    I’m sure if you’ve followed me for any length of time that you’ve heard me mention this book. It is one of my all-time favorites. I own it in multiple formats and read it often. It never fails to leave me smiling.
  6. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige
    The Wizard of Oz is one of my favorite stories to be retold. Paige’s take on the story is fresh and fun. I love the haunting quality of her retelling. While I’ve only read the first book, I do own the entire series, and one of my goals this year is to finish it ๐Ÿ˜‰
  7. Fable by Adrienne Young
    I devoured this book and its sequel. The imagery and world-building were beautiful. I felt like I was diving in the ocean with Fable. Plus pirates ๐Ÿ˜€
  8. Jackaby by William Ritter
    I read this one as a part of COYER book club last year and loved it. It isn’t my normal read (story of my life last year) so it took me by surprise. I would classify this one as a historical fantasy with paranormal elements. Highly recommend!
  9. My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows
    I absolutely loved this one! Very little historical facts in it, this is more satire with a bit of fantasy. I laughed out loud multiple times.
  10. Tin by Candace Robinson & Amber R. Duell
    Another retelling of The Wizard of Oz and this one is hot and steamy, full of fae. I devoured this one. It loosely retells the original classic, weaving it into the world of the Fae. Highly recommend for anyone that enjoys fantasy romance.
