Top Ten Tuesday: Unique Book Titles


Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Unique Book Titles. Some books catch your eye with their unique titles. The titles of the following books all pique my interest.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon


An unforgettable title and a great book.

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie


I’m drawn to this title and it sounds like a brilliant whodunnit.

They Both Die at The End by Adam Silvera


I need to read this book and find out why they both die at the end!

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick


This is an imaginative title and the book was adapted into the sci-fi film Blade Runner.

The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon


I sometimes forget that the Sun is a star. This book is on my TBR and I like the title. I’m guessing it includes some science.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky


This title is different and stands out from the YA crowd.

A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess


An unusual title which is explained in the book, although I’m still not sure if I fully understand the concept!

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee


The title alone makes me want to read this! I’ve heard good things about this fun historical fiction novel.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams


You gotta admit, this sounds like an exciting sci-fi book.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson


Thompson’s book certainly has an intriguing title.

  1. Great list! I just saw the new Bladerunner film & have no idea how ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep’ is relevant to the story (maybe hardcore sci-fi fans can tell me!) but I agree it is a very quirky title. On a separate note, ‘And Then There Were None’ is a fantastic thriller, very chilling…

    1. In the story,, owning an animal is a demonstration of empathy, which androids aren’t supposed to have. So I think that the title is both questioning the humanity of the androids, and wondering how they resemble humans.

    1. Thank you! Right? Good catchy titles are the best! Can’t wait to read ‘They Both Die at the End’ and ‘A Gentleman’s Guide to Virtue’.
