10 Books On My TBR With Numbers in Their Titles

Tuesday, October 01, 2019

Wow, can you believe it's already October? Instead of posting my wrap up, which should be up some time this week, I'm looking through my to-read pile to see which books have numbers in the title.

There is something that draws me to titles with numbers in them (I don't know what it is). Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is: Top 10 Books with Numbers in Their Titles:

Seven Letters from Paris by Samantha Verant: This is a memoir of a woman who is down on her luck and finds love letters that were given to her when she was in her 20s. She tracks the man down, almost 20 years later, and finds that both distance and time hasn't severed their feelings for each other. Swoon.

Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan: Any book that has to do with books or a bookstore has got to be good, right? And a 24-hour bookstore? Sounds like heaven.

Love Scene, Take Two by Alex Evansley: This is a contemporary debut novel about a romance between an actor and an author. The actor auditions for a part in the author's film adaptation of her book; and the rest is history.

Odd One Out by Nic Stone: I've been debating reading or unhauling this one because I'm just not sure if it's for me. It's about a complicated love triangle that seems to get out of hand.

Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum: It has heart shaped waffles on the cover, need I say more?

Article 5 by Kristen Simmons: I'm not that big into the dystopian genre anymore but it's been sitting on my shelf since I was into it so I might as well give it a go.

November 9 by Colleen Hoover: Ever since reading my first Hoover book this year, I've been working on collecting them all because I enjoyed her writing so much.

Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson: I tend to read the occasional memoir here and there and saw this book in the budget pile at the bookstore and decided to pick it up. The subtitle of the book is One Man's Mission to Promote Peace ... One School at a Time which sounds like a promising and engaging read.

Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans: This book is actually titled The Memory of After now because readers thought the number 2 made it a sequel-- though I own the original titled book so I'm including it here. This book is a sort of dystopian/science fiction about a girl who dies unexpectedly and finds herself in level 2, an afterlife or in-between place. When one of her neighbors in level 2 dies and she is the only one who even remembers her, she starts to wonder if something isn't as it seems here.

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo: So, I've read her Six of Crows duology and am currently in the middle of the Grisha trilogy but Ninth House will be the first foray into adult fiction for Bardugo and I'm excited to what the book holds.
