TTT: Book Titles That Are Complete Sentences

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. There is a new topic each week for bloggers to join in with their own top ten. If you’re looking for some new or different book blogs to read, hop on over to her site and check out some of the links.

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday was the brain child of Jessica over at A Cocoon of Books. It was by turns harder and easier than I’d thought it would be. The topic is Book Titles That Are Complete Sentences. I decided to take books with colons out of play. Well, I did include one but the sentence comes BEFORE the colon where most books with colons have an obvious sentence after the colon. But honesty, I found a lot of book could be considered complete sentences as long as you’re not a primary school English teacher. To me, if the title would make sense in certain conversations (or as answers to questions) I figured it was a sentence.

I’ve read all of these books, but some of them were read well before I started this blog, or even leaving reviews on Goodreads. For those I have a review for I’ll link to the review. If there’s no review from me, the title will be linked to an IndieBound buy link.

    Ha ha. English teachers might have a coronary over some of the titles I’ve seen on today’s lists that are definitely NOT complete sentences. You make a good point, though – the rules of sentence construction (or at least what’s considered an acceptable sentence) have changed a bit over time.

    Happy TTT!
