…Book With Three Words in the Title
Guys, I can’t tell you how ecstatic I was when Shanyn from Chick Loves Lit announced that she was starting this awesome meme. Quick background: When I first started my blog, I had been recognizing crazy, random similarities in lots of the books I was reading–main characters who run, books set in Italy–and I had an idea to make posts out of it. I still have my list, even though the posts never got off the ground. Things like books that take place in the wintertime, books about Arthurian legend, books involving weather. Shanyn’s AWESOME Recommend A… meme is finally giving me the chance to cater to my inner nerd for specificity and randomness!! AND I LOVE IT. So props to Shanyn, who is fab for starting this up. I’m looking forward to giving some attention to books that might have missed everyone’s radar for one reason or another. Woo hoo!
So, without further ado, here’s a few books that I loved with only three words in the title. I tried to avoid titles where one of the three words is “the,” but…I failed. Alas.
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson. This one just came out last week and I’ve already finished it and HOLY CRAP, it was AMAHLZING (please tell me I’m not the only person who watches Happy Endings)! It completely delivered on the promise of awesome that AMY & ROGER’S EPIC DETOUR made. Morgan Matson has been on my must-read author list since Amy & Roger–her effing DEBUT!–so all I can tell you is that you can expect more lovely, bittersweet, touching stuff from SECOND CHANCE SUMMER.
Sean Griswold’s Head by Lindsey Leavitt. If you guys haven’t had the chance to read SEAN GRISWOLD’S HEAD yet, make plans to. Pretty please? It’s another one of those stories where you think you know what it’s going to be going in and then all of a sudden it’s wringing your heart out and you had NO IDEA IT WAS COMING. This one defied my expectations of cute romance by being MORE. Loved it.
The Humming Room by Ellen Potter. MIDDLE GRADE, HOLLA! Can’t have a list without some MG goodness on it! There’s actually quite a lot of MG with three-word titles, but I chose THE HUMMING ROOM because I don’t think enough people have gotten around to reading it yet. It’s a little under the radar, but SO worth the time. As a retelling of sorts of THE SECRET GARDEN, it’s got that same sort of lonely, subtle vibe, plus lively characters and a fantastic setting. This one snuck up on me, guys, with how much I liked it.
