The Broke and Bookish have suggested unique book titles for this week’s list. All titles link to the book’s Goodreads page.
Ella Minnow Pea: A Novel in Letters by Mark Dunn
Here the author has made words out of the section of the alphabet – L, M, N, O, P.
I mean, is that a subtitle or what?
How the Soldier Repairs the Gramophone by Saša Stanišić
It’s a title that makes you stop and wonder, looking for more.
I love it when authors come up with Dickensian names!
The Book of Barely Imagined Beings: A 21st Century Bestiary by Caspar Henderson
The phrase “barely imagined” is so enticing.
As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust by Alan Bradley
Actually, I love the titles of all the awesome Flavia de Luce books.
The Keeper of Lost Causes by Jussi Adler-Olsen
Just the title is evocative. Who has that job? I want to read about it.
So blunt and effective. Also I love when librarians get some street cred.
The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton
I don’t entirely know what it is about but I have to know more! I also need to know why in the UK is it only 7 deaths, but she has an extra half one in America?
