Top 5 Saturday: Books With One Word Titles

Top 5 Saturday is a weekly meme started by Devouring Books.  You can check out the upcoming prompts at the bottom of the post! This week’s topic is Books With One Word Titles. Last week I went with books from my TBR, so this week, I’m going with recommendations!

I just had to read this one after reading Bright Side. It was a must! And while it wasn’t Bright Side, it was still everything it should have been! Obviously I recommend starting with Bright Side. Yes, it’s sad, but it’s also full of encouragement. It’ll make you want to be a better person!

This was my first Mariana Zapata book, and I knew after reading it that it wouldn’t be the last! This was the perfect blend of sweet and funny!!

I have seen Kennedy Ryan’s name pop up a lot the last couple weeks with all of the readers looking to support Black Lives Matter. And well, honestly, I can’t think of a better book to recommend!

Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman perfected the union of sci-fi and romance with this series!! Definitely a favorite!!

And this series was the perfect blend of fantasy, mystery, and romance. I loved the world built around Caraval, and would love to go visit!!

Upcoming Prompts ~

6/20/20 — Books You’d Give a Second Chance

6/27/20 —  Books with Morally Grey Characters


Have you read any of these? What is your favorite book with a one-word title??

Happy Reading,

  1. Great list, Ali! Illuminae is of course one of my all time fave and I also really loved Caraval. I surprisingly haven’t heard of Lingus before? But since it’s Zapata you know I’m adding that to my TBR right away! Lol


    • I’m really hoping to get to Still sometime soon! I love Ryan’s ability to look at things from all sides in such a compassionate way. She just seems to have a heart for people in general and that alone is enough to make me want to keep picking up her books!!


  2. I remember doing the TTT for one word titles, and I found I don’t read that many books with one word titles. I have read all three Iluminae books and the Caraval books too. Oh, I read Grip as well.
