Favorite Five Books with Really Long Titles
Wee, another fun and random topic. Long titles is a square on our r/fantasy bingo card this year, so thought I’d throw out some of my favorites as a topic for FFF. I could used Good Omens again for this one, with its full title, but I will resist. 🙂
The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter & European Travel for the Monstrous Gentlewoman by Theodora Goss
Is it cheating to use two books here? Ah, who cares, this is my list and I make the rules. 🙂 These books are so much fun and I am VERY MUCH looking forward to the third in the series which also has a very long title.
A Dog and His Boy at the End of the World by C.A. Fletcher
I just can’t stop thinking about this book. It’s SOOOOO good. Honestly, it sounds like it would be super bleak. And even though I did cry at least once reading it, it’s not sad! It’s hopeful post-apocalyptic fiction, I don’t know how that works, but here ya go.
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
Most of you probably know I’m a huge fan of Becky Chambers by now. I just love her books. They’re so hopeful and they say things, but they’re not in your face and they’re just great books to read when you’re feeling crappy about life. Books that are like a warm hug just when you need it.
The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North
This book is such a mind trip. I love the concept. And if you like slice of life you may enjoy this one too because it takes a while for the plot to kick in and it’s just this guy living his life, over and over again for a lot of the book. It’s intriguing and the end packs an emotional punch. Great book.
Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire
I’ll admit that the Wayward Children series of novellas has been a bit up and down for me, although I’ve had a lot of fun with them overall. But Down Among the Sticks and Bones has been my favorite so far. It’s dark and weird and kind of emo and the prose is amazing. I LOVED this book.
Well, those are my picks this week. What do you think? What are some of your favorites with long titles? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
