Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week, she posts an idea relating to books and encourages other book bloggers to respond with their own top ten lists.
This week’s topic is “Books with Names/Character Names in the Titles.” I feel like I read a lot of books with one- and two-word titles, so this list was trickier to compile than I thought it would be!
