Top Ten Tuesday ~ One Word Titles

It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday! Don’t forget to head over to That Artsy Reader Girl and join the linkup!


Books With Single-Word Titles

There are so many books with one-word titles! I will try to keep these to one book per series in the cases where the series contains several single-word titles. (The reason I say this is because I don’t want to make up this entire list using Kelley Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld or Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid Chronicles.)

Here are some books that I want to read (or re-read) that have a one word title.

  1. Bitten by Kelley Armstrong (re-read)
  2. Replica by Jenna Black
  3. Venom by Jennifer Estep
  4. Feed by Mira Grant
  5. Crosstalk by Connie Willis
  1. RoseBlood by A.G. Howard
  2. Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman (re-read)
  3. Foundation by Isaac Asimov
  4. Stardance by Spider and Jeanne Robinson
  5. Dreamfall by Amy Plum (yes, I know, the cover shows it as two words… Goodreads has it as one word, and that’s what I’m going by)

Have you read any of these? Are there any I should prioritize? What one-word titled books are on your TBR?

  1. I notice that many authors or series tend to favor one word titles. I haven’t read most of these but Crosstalk is on my TBR. I also read Neverwhere a million years ago. I sort of want to reread it again.

    1. Neverwhere was my first Gaiman, ages ago. I plan to re-read it because at the time I didn’t know what to make of it so I didn’t like it much. I’m hoping a re-read will allow me to like (or dislike) it based on its own merits and not my confusion.

  2. I’d like to read Neverwhere to give Neil Gaiman another chance. (That and Stardust, which is another one-word title!)

    Roseblood is… interesting for a retelling. It’s definitely different because the Phantom of the Opera vibes, but I don’t remember a whole lot about it. Super atmospheric.

    1. I’ve determined that I like Gaiman best when I listen to him read the audiobook. Neverwhere was my first Gaiman, and I read it for myself, so I want to try listening to it instead and see if I like it better than I did the first time around.

      Atmospheric sounds great! This is one that I won in a giveaway a few years ago (I unfortunately forget who hosted the giveaway, though) and I didn’t know much about it prior to that.

      1. Ooh, that’s interesting. Maybe I should try one of them as an audiobook too. I wish I would have listened to Good Omens instead of read it. I think I might have enjoyed it more.

        Happy reading! 🙂

  3. Hey we had a couple of these in common! Neverwhere and Feed! I really want to check out Feed. I’ve been in a zombie mood lately between the pandemics and binge watching Z Nation (which is funny and awesome).

    1. I think this is the perfect time to read zombie pandemic books. But first I have to get up the nerve…

      On the other hand, the days are getting longer, so there’s more sunlight for me to read the spooky books. 😉
