Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’ve read with numbers in the title

Numbers in titles read in last ten years and those read as a teen

That Artsy Reader Girl has hosted Top Ten Tuesday since January of 2018. This is a fun meme with specific topics each week. If you like to make lists and talk about books be sure to check it out.

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

    1. I seldom reread books, but the Agatha Christies are ones I would read again since it was so long ago that I read them the first time.


  1. Great list! I’ve read Ready Player One and most of the books from your teenager list. 🙂 And I think The First Chill of Autumn looks really good.


    1. The Agatha Christie books are the first place I looked for numbers since I remembered a few titles. But you’re right there are lots of them with numbers.

    1. I was surprised also, Katherine. You did a great job with your TTT since you found 1-10 with books you’d read. I was just happy I could find 10 books with numbers I’d read from the past 10 years!


  2. A really solidly good list of books – who knew numbers featured so heavily in book titles? The two that particularly jump out at me are Just One Damned Thing After Another and One Fell Sweep, which I both loved:)


    1. Split Second was really good and I realized when I looked at it that I never read the second book in the series. I might go back and try it.
