Top Ten Tuesday: A Complete-ly Interesting Titular Trend

When I first saw today's TTT topic—Top Ten Book Titles That Are Complete Sentences—I almost skipped it.  It seemed tough and, frankly, a little boring.  Then, I started noticing how popular this titling trend actually is.  Turns out, this subject is way more interesting than I thought at first glance.  Using my Goodreads lists, it was a cinch to come up with ten books on my TBR list with titles that are a full sentence.  

If you want to perk up your Tuesday a bit, why don't you join in the TTT fun?  All you have to do is click on over to That Artsy Reader Girl to get started.

Top Ten Books On My TBR List With Titles That Are Complete Sentences

1.  She Lies in Wait by Gytha Lodge—I have this mystery/thriller out from the library right now.  A group of teenagers is on a camping trip when one of their members disappears.  When a body is found ten years later, the campers reluctantly reunite to confront each other and find out what really happened on the fateful trip.

2.  Florence Adler Swims Forever by Rachel Beanland—This historical novel is about the daily dramas of a family living in tight quarters in New Jersey.  When a young woman escaped from Nazi Germany comes to stay in their cramped apartment, even more drama ensues. 

3.  You Belong Here Now by Dianna Rostad—In Depression-era America, orphans from crowded cities are being shipped westward to be adopted by farm families who want children and/or need free labor.  Charles, who's tired of being showcased like livestock, decides enough is enough and jumps the orphan train along with two of his friends.  They happen upon a farm owned by a taciturn woman that just might be the home they've all been longing for.

4.  We Are Not Free by Traci Chee—Another historical, this YA offering is about 14 Japanese-American teenagers who are imprisoned in an internment camp during World War II.

5.  In My Dreams I Hold a Knife by Ashley Winstead—Like #1, this thriller features a group of friends whose lives are changed irrevocably when a member of their group is killed.  Ten years later, they're reunited.  Someone is determined to flush out the killer, to make sure no one gets away with murder.

6.  Lucy Clark Will Not Apologize by Margo Rabb—I heard about this YA contemporary over on Sam's blog, We Live and Breathe Books.  It features the titular teen, who is kicked out of her boarding school after taking action against the kids who have been bullying her.  As punishment, she's sent to New York City to be the full-time companion of an eccentric old woman.  When the lady insists someone is trying to murder her, Lucy finds herself tasked with solving a puzzling mystery.

7.  You Can't Catch Me by Catherine McKenzie—A psychological thriller about cults and catching an identity thief?  Yes, please!  

8.  Everything Sad is Untrue by Daniel Nayeri—This middle-grade book recounts what happened to the author when he was transplanted from Iran to rural Oklahoma as a young boy.

9.  Meet the Sky by McCall Hoyle—I came across this YA novel last week while looking for books for my survival story-themed TTT list.  It's about two frenemies caught in a hurricane on North Carolina's Outer Banks.  As they fight for survival, both of them learn important lessons about life and each other.

10.  I Will Judge You By Your Bookshelf by Grant Snider—Savage, but true!  This volume is full of comics about reading, writing, and the bookworm life we all know and love.  Sounds like tons of fun.

There you have it, ten books on my TBR list that have whole-sentence titles.  Have you read any of them?  Which other books that fit this topic do you recommend?  I'd truly love to know.  Leave me a comment on this post and I will gladly return the favor on your blog.

Happy TTT!
