Link Du Jour: Top 10 Titles
I know we’re not supposed to judge books by their covers (although there’s no denying they play a role), but can we judge books by their titles? Is that more or less legitimate than cover appeal? In preparing for my fall preview post a couple weeks back, I came across two titles that stood out:
Au Revoir Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber
How to Rock Braces and Glasses by Meg Haston
I enjoyed both so much that I put up a poll to determine which one readers liked the most. And the results are…
Au Revoir takes the cake!
The excellent children’s an YA blog Bookends recently wrote about their Top 10 Book Titles of 2011. I think the one that stands out most to me from their list is The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente. Not likely to forget that any time soon. Did any of your favorites make the cut? Click the image below to read.
