Top Ten Tuesday: book titles with numbers in them

Once again, it’s Tuesday and I am here with a very random title and theme, so let’s get into it, I’ll try my best to list as many titles as possible (can’t guarantee that I actually read them)!

#1 Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Who would have thought that one of my favorite books on earth would make this list? I actually realized this pretty late haha, I never manage to list the most obvious books on such tags, I always read other posts and then remember the easy and obvious choices while I struggled and struggled…

On to the book: Six of Crows is probably one of the most famous YA books and almost everyone I know (that reads YA) goes crazy whenever I mention this title. So, if you haven’t checked this out yet (which is literally a 1% chance), please try. It’s worth it, I promise.

#2 Famous Five by Enid Blyton

The Famous Five series by Enid Blyton not only shaped my childhood, but basically dominated most parts of it. And you know what I only just discovered: that there are new books that take place 20 years later with the five being all grown up and living together?

#3 99 Days by Katie Cotugno

99 Days is one of these books that caused my bad relationship with contemporary YA/ coming of age books. You see, the plot and all was super enjoyable, but the ending just terribly disappointing. And I know that this isn’t a legitimate stereo type for contemporary books, but I’ve had multiple scenarios like this and so that’s why I’m always very careful choosing books (if anyone cares/wondered)!

#4 The Two Towers by J.R.R Tolkien

Tragically, I stopped reading The Lord of the Rings after about half of the first book because I just couldn’t take it. The endless descriptions of fictional landscape, page after page of forest descriptions, of never-ending walking and nothing going on. Hear me out: I really wanted to love this trilogy, I am a big fan of the movies and when I enjoy reading something, I have no problem with long descriptions or everyday situations (aka Harry Potter – no problem for me). But this was simply too much.

#5 The Sign of Four (Sherlock Holmes) by Arthur Conan Doyle

I didn’t read this Sherlock Holmes story, but I did watch the Sherlock episode! (Don’t hate me – I’m usually all for Also, or preferably, read the book first!). But Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are so iconic, this has to be mentioned.

That’s it for today – I know a couple more titles (The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas and A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens), but I don’t have any personal relationship with them, so I’ll end it here!

I hope you enjoyed this post, have a great start into October and happy reading everyone!

    1. I know right!!!!!! I saw them last year in London at a “Brexit” display at Waterstones where it said “Five on Brexit Island” and I was like haha that’s funny. But then my mum read an article and the books actually exist!!!! Like what????? I thought it was just a funny take on the brexit/ treasure island book but no… I haven’t actually read the new ones yet tho!

  1. Oooh- the Three Musketeers is a good one! For some reason when reading this topic I totally blanked and couldn’t think of anything outside of Stephanie Plum and her One For The Money etc. etc. books.
