15 Book Titles That Really Caught My Interest | #TopTenTuesday 300

Last week for Top Ten Tuesday (as always hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) I talked about covers that made me want to buy a book. But titles were also a part of the prompt. I obviously made a choice but since this weeks prompt (minor characters) wasn’t drawing me in because of having previous done something similar, I decided to grab back to it and look at some titles this time around.

I will admit to being mostly a visual kind of picker of books, but on occasion a title can really draw me in. Sometimes in combination with the cover and other times on its own. Words placed together can do funny things as we as readers will know. So here are a few that have piqued my interested over the years. And these I’ve actually read.

The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O.

By Neal Stephenson and Nicole Galland
How can this not capture your attention. Dodo’s are such a question mark haha. Of course it didn’t turn out that way but it still imediately pulled my attention to pick up the book and look further.

The School for Good and Evil

By Soman Chainani
This caught my interest because it is a school and then seems to hit the stereotype of good and evil. Unfortunately this mg didn’t end up working for me but the title is a good eye catcher.

The Three-Body Problem

By Liu Cixin
I had no idea what the three-body problem was so then I had to know. I do now but you know, couldn’t repeat it to you, haha. Even so it is an interesting kind of book.

The Library of the Unwritten

By A.J. Hackwith
The library part was enough reason to grab me, then there was the unwritten part which made me wonder. Then the series title of Hell’s library really got my attention. Love this series.

Stronger than a Bronze Dragon

By Mary Fan
It was the dragon part that first caught my attention of course as a dragon lover. Adding in the bronze and stronger than, it really caught me attention. Again it didn’t end up meeting my first thoughts here but it was still a good book!

Sorcerer to the Crown

By Zen Cho
To be fair I had seen this at a bloggers post first but if it hadn’t been for the title it wouldn’t have stood out in that post in the first place though. I remember it and found it in a local store months later.

The Pyramids of London

By Andrea K. Host
Yeah that combination made my eyebrows rose so I had to know how that all worked. I loved it but so far no sequel to read.

Love in the Time of Dragons

By Katie MacAlisster
It was the dragon part that did it. I didn’t know what I was getting into! Not my kind of book haha.

Don’t Hex and Drive

By Juliette Cross
Last year I found this book on Netgalley and had a go at it. The title grabbed me instantly. I still don’t think the book really lives up to the title but the series as a whole is a lot of fun.

City of Broken Magic

By Mirah Bolender
Another Netgalley find. The idea of broken magic in a city really just grabbed my attention.

It‘s a Wonderful Death

By Sarah J. Schmitt
As someone who likes depictions of Death as a character as well as anything that hints towards necromancing, these kind of book titles really do draw me in. Unfortunately it did not really live up to the wonderful title.

The King of Bones and Ashes

By J.D. Horn
Another NG find. This title interested me because of similar reasons as the above title. It hints towards death/necromancy, and while that is not really what it is about it does show its darkness. That with the series title of Witches in New Orleans, made me want to read. Overall a very entertaining trilogy.

The Epic Crush of Genie Lo

By F.C. Yee
How can this title not appeal to you? It screams epic with a bit of humor. And that was what this book was exactly. Loved every bit of it.

The Little Shop of Found Things

By Paula Brackston
This title sounded like it was going to be a heartwarming story and it was with a bit of magic thrown in.

The Copper Promise

By Jen Williams
And lastly but not least, this title drew me in in combination with its cover. Having a dragon with the title the copper promise really made me wonder where this was going to go.

What title from these 15 grabs your attention right away?

  1. So many eye-catching and intriguing titles on this list! I’m definitely more of a visual person too when it comes to picking books but I love when I come across a fun and unique title! Great list 🙂


  2. Three Body Problem is the title that had hooked me too from the very first. (Sadly, it’s been sitting on my TBR since that time!) Close seconds from your list are Don’t Hex and Drive and Epic Crush of Genie Lo. Now, what are those about? 🙂

    1. Don’t hex and drive is part of an urban fantasy/paranormal romance series that follows a sister each book in their romance/role in life. And The Epic Crush of Genie Lo is about Genie and the Monkey King. Absolutely hilarious

  3. I DNF The Three Body Problem. Someday I should give it another shot! You’re right that it was quite complicated but also interesting.

    Thanks for stopping by earlier.

  4. Twee eigenlijk. Maar degene die ik eerst tegenkwam in deze lijst is Library of the unwritten. Die staat nog op mijn lijstje met boeken die ik wil lezen en ook op mijn wishlist voor de Halloween Swap.
