TTT | Books with Names/Character Names In the Titles

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly topic hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provide a topic and you are free to use that topic and/or variations of that topic to make your top ten list. A full list of the weekly themes can be found here.

This weeks topic are books that have a name in the title, and I’m a little surprised about how many books I read with names in the title. I didn’t think I’d have enough.

A book I read for work. It was a fun, easy read about Queen Mary, if Queen Mary lived in a fantasy world and turned into a mouse.


This is probably my favorite TJR book (either this one or Malibu Rising). I did enjoy the format of the book as an interview with all the band members.


The Avatar universe is so much fun and I love everything about it! Kyoshi’s years as the Avatar were so fascinating (and nerve wracking) to read.


This book….this book tore me apart, ripped my heart out, and tried to attempt to reassemble me! Ugh! I do want to re-read it before reading Harrow the Ninth.


Another book I read for work. This book was not feminist nor that good. The main character, Jemima (side note why in the world would you name a white girl Jemima), is the typical white girl feminist. But by the end of the book she doesn’t even really learn her lesson nor is she really made to think about her version of feminism.


I was actually told that the ending wasn’t really an ending and was more open-ended, which is why I think I actually really did like the ending. Sadie’s character and story though is just so heartbreaking!


This is one of my favorite books! The story, the characters, the scenery is just all so prefect. Ari & Dante are so adorable, and yes, I still need to read the second book!


This character name is a bit different as Alice is not actually a real person. The Alice Network was a real group of women who worked in France during WWI gathering information about German troop movements and battle plans.


A book about Holmes and Watson having descendants and in our day those descendants are in boarding school together?!? Yes, please. Charlotte is the descendant of Sherlock and is just so delightful. I also love how much she doesn’t fit into traditional gender roles.


One of the books I used in my thesis, it covers the story of Eneas who is blacklisted in Ireland and forced to leave. The story is beautifully told and heartbreaking at times.

Happy Reading Darlings!
