Top Ten Tuesday

Books I’d Give Different Titles To


This weeks TTT is all about books I’d give different titles to and… it is gonna be weird. I went right passed taking this seriously and dove head first into sarcasm and strangeness. It’s all very tongue and cheek and I haven’t slept well in days so I’m blaming anything and everything on that.

In other news, I’m one of the lucky thousands who’s getting their power turned off (again) in California. Never mind the death, waste, chaos, and general backlash of the last one, let’s do it again! /sarcasm

That was fun, but I feel like I should apologize? Was it just fun for me? Maybe. Anyway, I’m going to soak up as much internet and electricity as I can before the power gets turned off.


*Bonus included because Harry Potter Titles are just too much fun to come up with. Also this could be the title for literally every book.

  1. That is quite an impressive array of “things to validate my assumption that I didn’t want to read most of these anyway,” in a much faster and more fun way than scoping out Goodreads reviews. (except for HP, where I lovingly concede that you are not wrong, and Mansfield Park, because I love that one mainly for the reasons people dislike it)

    1. I actually really love six out of ten of these books, especially Goblet of Fire, Tempests and Slaughter, and Red, White and Royal Blue, so by no means should you disregard those titles. And Saga is really good, it just tears your heart out and jettisons it into the vacuum of space. As for Mansfield Park, I guess I like my clergy characters more along the lines of Henry Tilney then Edmund Bertrum.
