Top 5 Wednesday: Favourite Book Titles

Top 5 Wednesday was set up by Lainey over at GingerReadsLainey. Every week you have a new topic and you pick your top 5 choices for each topic. This is done in Vlogs, but I think it will be great for Bloggers to do as well. Today's topic is Top 5 Favourite Book Titles. If I'm being honest, I'm not a huge fan of book titles. Some are generic with one words and some just follow a specific pattern like the 50 Shades Trilogy. However, despite my dislike in most titles I did manage to form a list of my 5 favourite.

So...Lets get started!

FIFTH PLACE: To All The Boys I've Love Before by Jenny Han.

The title basically describes the book. It's about Lara Jean who after finishing with a boy, instead of going through that cannot-stop-crying-need-ice-cream phase, she just writes them a letter, places them in an envelope and leaves them in an old box. Until one day they're accidently sent out. I've not read it myself, but I do own it and it's what attracted me to buying it. Plus I really like how the font is handwritten, it makes it seem more real.

FOURTH PLACE: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.

I think a fourteen year old could have came up with the title of Gone Girl, but I think that is what makes it a brilliant title. It's simple, but it tells the story perfectly without giving anything away. (Apart from the fact that someone goes missing.) What I also like about it is that Gillian seems to follow a theme: Gone Girl, Sharp Objects and Dark Places. Two word titles are perfect for her and her readers.

THIRD PLACE: The Story of Tracy Beaker.

This isn't exactly a favourite title, but it's one of nostalgia. My childhood was basically full of Tracy Beaker and not just the books, but the TV Show as well (they did kind of milk it a bit). If you never experienced Tracy Beaker then you definitely did not live. Back then it was the cocaine of children's TV and the books did just as good. I have to say that I definitely miss it. Ps, if none of you know what it's about then I'll tell you. It follows a slightly angry girl called Tracy who grows up in a foster home.

SECOND PLACE: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell.

If I had to come up with a title for this book, it would've been something like Falling For Someone Online or Stalked, but if anything I think this is one of my favourite titles because it makes so much sense. Lincoln becomes attached to someone online. The thing with Mrs Rowell is that all her titles are perfect: Attachments, Eleanor and Park, Fangirl and Landline. They all link to something in the book.

FIRST PLACE: Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman.

Noughts and Crosses is a game we've all played and in this incredible novel that's one of the themes. Whites vs Blacks. The things with games is that we've all cheated and that's how the book goes. Who can you trust? I have to say though, that this is the only title in this series that I like. The other's make no sense (I've not read the others).
