Top Ten Tuesday – Ten Frequently Used Words In YA Book Titles


Hello wonderful bookish friends! I missed last week’s TTT since I was recuperating from all the planning and craziness for my mom’s 60th birthday party, but today I’m back with another segment of Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and has been moved to That Artsy Reader Girl since January 16, 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s topic is Ten Frequently Used Words In YA Book Titles.  This one was really fun to do even though it took me a while to finish. For this post, I used my Goodreads to see which words were often used in the books I add. Well, it’s definitely not a surpirse that LOVE popped up the most since I’m a romance addict and I almost always add any YA books that have that word in the title.

  1. Great picks! I liked Love & Gelato and also Fangirl, and I love the cover of The Midnight Star. Amazing how many times night or midnight are used, or even shadows for that matter. 🙂
