Top Ten Tuesday: Books With Single-Word Titles

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together. 

This week we’re listing our ten favourite books with one word titles.

I didn’t really think about how few books had one word titles, I did have enough however to have my whole list be 5 star reads!

Have you read any of these? What did you think?

Tell me in the comments below!

1. Kulti, Mariana Zapata

This is one of my all time favourite books and makes it onto any TTT list it can fit into!



2. Vicious, V.E. Schwab

I really enjoyed this one, it was different, fresh and full of morally grey characters which I love.


3. Hummingbirds, Joshua Gaylord

This is a random one that not many people have heard of. I read it years ago though and just remember loving the language so much.


4. Wool, Hugh Howey

This sci fi, dystopian, story was just amazing. I think I picked it up at a book fair and I’m so glad I did.


5. Egomaniac, Vi Keeland

This one was funny and cute and made me smile 5 stars worth. My favourite from Keeland.


6. Sustained, Emma Chase

This is one of my favourite romances. I love ones that bring people together over raising kids and with a huge brood this one ticks all the boxes!


7. Bittersweet, Sarina Bowen

Bittersweet is everything you want if you love a gruff hero, hard working heroine and beautiful country setting.


8. Him, Sarina Bowen

One of my favourite MM books of all time!


9. Graceling, Kristin Cashore

This YA fantasy is a really cool concept and a really great read.


10. Outlander, Diana Gabaldon

I really loved Outlander but also found it really hard to read at times. I’m currently stuck half way through the second one.

  1. Yay for Vicious! I had Vengeful on my list today but this series is so amazing and is one of my all time faves 🖤 I’m looking forward to finally reading Kulti (and hopefully soon coz I need more Zapata in my life)! Great list 🙂

  2. I just added The Wool Trilogy to my shelf, so I’m happy to see it on your list. And I hope you continue with Outlander. If I recall correctly, (I read the first three or four so quickly, they all blend together) I enjoyed the third and fourth ones better than the second. I’ve only made it through the fifth, but I’m hoping to continue this year. Happy Reading!

    1. I find parts of these two books at least really fast, and other bits really slow. I know I need to push through the slow sad bits though because I know overall I will love it!

      The wool series is really really good and I recommend it to anyone who will listen! Probably not one to read right now though as it might hit a little close to home given what’s going on in the world. Pick it up when we’re coming out the other side of this!
