TTT: Book Titles with Numbers In Them

I listened to Beyonce’s “Countdown”, Bruno Mars’s “Count on Me” and Taylor Swift’s entire Lover album several times to mentally prepare myself for this TTT. The Lover Album doesn’t have anything to do with counting I just really like it.

Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl is a weekly meme born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together

0.5) Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling


Yes I really am THAT extra, overachieving Asian today. There was bound to be a HP book here eventually, I definitely didn’t name my blog after my love of sweeping.

1)Ready Player One by Ernest Cline


I read the book a while ago and I honestly don’t remember if I liked it or not? (should I be worried?) I recall a lot of gaming references which my inner (minecraft) nerd approved of, really brought me back to my Club Penguin days.

2) A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens


I own this book but I haven’t read it. I know. Blasphemy. I really don’t dislike classics either but every time I try to read the first page, I pick up a cliche YA novel instead which I probably read a thousand times before but with different names and sentence structure.

3)Life of Pi by Yann Martel


My mom had this tendency of buying books and never reading them, I might have inherited this trait from her, but I actually read this book…but wish I hadn’t. The movie is a stunning visual masterpiece but the book was just boring and talked a lot about tiger piss.

Edit: I just realized I could have used Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K Jerome, I had to read this book for school which I usually hate doing but I surprisingly thought this book was hilarious, don’t tell my school though.

4) I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore


I started the movie, didn’t complete it even if Alex Pettyfer is a beaut and the MC in every Wattpad book. Started the book, DNFed it and read all the spoilers online instead. Story of my life.

Alternatively, I could have chosen Four by Veronica Roth but I don’t want anything to do with that series, it hurt me more than Mufasa’s death in The Lion King.

5) Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury


I was briefly tempted to use this for 4 and 1 but that seems almost as sacrilegious as burning books.

6) Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo


This was probably the easiest because I think about Kaz Brekker pretty much everyday.

7) The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton


If an Agatha Christie book and a Black Mirror episode made a baby it would be this book.

8) Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert


If you say ‘eat’ in a bad enough British accent its sort of sounds like eight? Julia Roberts is quaking.

9) Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo


What a coincidence, this book is releasing soon!! It’s almost like I originally put 1984 by George Orwell but then replaced it with Ninth House even though it doesn’t need any more promo (Leigh Bardugo pls hire me into your marketing team). On an unrelated note, is anyone getting Taylor Swift Reputation vibes from the cover? On another unrelated note, I think I talk about Taylor Swift too much (Taylor hire me?)

10) A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini 


…10*10*10 is a thousand so it counts? Forget what I said about the Divergent series, this book made me cry harder than Mufasa’s death. It’s genuinely heart-breaking and gut-wrenching and soul-crushing. I don’t know what it is about this book, but it made me really sweat from my eyes.
