Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books Whose Titles Made Me Read

 I was bummed to have to skip last Tuesday, but I'm back for this week's Top Ten meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!

For me, this list heavily leans towards titles because while I appreciate gorgeous covers, I'm way more likely to read a book if the title makes me laugh.  And I really like dorky puns.  That's not just in titles though.

1. I'd Tell You I Love You But Then I'd Have to Kill You by Ally Carter
2. Sorcery and Cecila: Or the Enchanted Chocolate Pot by Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermeyer
3. Fallen Grace by Mary Hooper
4. Cinderella Ate My Daughter: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the New Girlie-Girl Culture by Peggy Orenstein
5. I Was a Non-Blonde Cheerleader by Kieran Scott
6. Pulling Princes by Tyne O'Connell
7. I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend by Cora Harrison
8. Prom Dates From Hell by Rosemary Clement-Moore
9. How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls by Zoey Dean

And to finish, one amazingly gorgeous cover that would have made me read anything:
10. Pegasus by Robin McKinley   Luckily, it's now one of my favourite books, and if you haven't read it, you should!

I didn't mean for it to work out like this, but actually all of these books are ones I really enjoyed.  Well, maybe not How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls, but that one was still fluffy and amusing, so sure, I guess it counts!

What books did you put on your list?  Leave me a link in the comments!  And don't forget to go enter my 100 Follower Giveaway as I try to thank all of you guys for the past few months of awesomeness.  I'm so glad I've gotten to hang out with you all and hope it continues for a long time.


  1. I love all the Gallagher Girl series books' covers! They're so cute and fun looking. The Pegasus cover is very pretty as well. :)

    My Top Ten :)

  2. Sorcery and Cecila: Or the Enchanted Chocolate Pot sounds awesome! I'd want to buy that from the title.

  3. I totally understand why you added each of your selections this week. You thought of some really winner titles.

  4. Oh! I remember when Pegasus came out! I loved it simply based on the cover and I've heard nothing but great reviews since then. :)

    Great picks! If you have a minute stop by to see what I picked this week at There's A Book.

  5. Let's hear it for "Sorcery and Cecilia"! I enjoyed that one very much, and both title and cover called to me.

  6. Sorcery and Cecelia! I love vintage looking covers.

  7. The first Gallagher Girls book is on my list, too, albeit for the cover, but the title is great and memorable, too. I really want to read How to Teach Filthy Rich Girls, mostly because I'm a teacher, but also because I loved the TV show Privileged, which was based on that book.

  8. Pegasus has a beautiful cover, and I almost picked it up because of that once, then I read a review and changed my mind.

    Pegasus has a gorgeous cover! I also love the vibrant red of Fallen Grace. Me thinks I may have to investigate those titles... ;) Great list!

  10. I LOVE the cover of Pegasus. I've only read Beauty by McKinley and it's one of my favorite fairy tale retellings, so Pegasus went immediately on my TBR list as soon as it came out.

    Love the title of the second book. Any title with the word chocolate in it grabs my attention. :)

  11. I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend is such a cute book! I really enjoyed reading it :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I read and adore each one.
