Top Ten Tuesday: One Word Wonders

Posted October 24, 2017 by meezcarrie in Christian, Top Ten Tuesday / 31 Comments

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday theme from The Broke & The Bookish is “unique book titles”.  The first thing I thought of was cozy mysteries but I’ve just done a post about them so instead I opted to feature books with one-word titles. I know there are many I could choose from, so I limited it to books I find myself recommending a lot. And uh… there may be more than 10. I’m sure no one is shocked 😉

Clicking the book cover takes you either to my review or to Amazon
In the case of series books where all books qualify, I’m only including the first title.









Ahem. At least I kept it below 20? 😉 What about you? What are some one-word titled books that you love? OR What is your fave unique book title?

    I love all of Dani Pettrey ‘s Alaskan books. They all have one word titles. Dee Henderson has a few, Undetected is a favorite, then Unspoken, etc. How about Christy? Just a few . I’m sure there are many.

  2. Oooh! One that comes to mind is “Evergreen” by Susan May Warren. And, her historical series that includes “Duchess”, etc.

    There are a few connected series by Karen Kingsbury, starting with the book titled “Redemption”.

    Home, Words by Ginny L. Yttrup
    Protected by Vannetta Chapman
    Waterfall, Cascade, Torrent, & Deluge by Lisa T. Bergren (she messed up and gave book 4 in the series a 2 word title Bourne & Tributary) ? I didn’t realize there were so many 1 word titles.

  5. Rebecca Maney

    Ronie Kendig’s books immediately came to my mind . . . . and “Centralia” by Mike Dellosso is a great book.

  6. Rachael

    Cathy Marie Hake (whose books remind me a lot of Karen Witemeyer’s) has several great ones: Bittersweet, Forevermore, Whirlwind, and Serendipity.

    And of course, there’s all of Dani Pettrey’s Alaskan Courage series. Love those too.

      love Dani’s – i’ve got Submerged on the list. I haven’t read Cathy’s books. Clearly I need to 🙂

  7. Great idea! Of course, I love the whole Discarded Heroes series, and Varina’s series. Reclaimed and Kept are favourites of mine too. I’m trying to think of one you haven’t mentioned… Oh, I know! Tamara Alexander’s Fountain Creek Chronicles: Rekindled, Revealed, and Remembered.

  8. Emilee

    I have only read Edenbrooke out of your list. Some of my favorites are Rekindled, Revealed & Remembered by Tamera Alexander. Bittersweet, Serendipity & Wirlwind by Cathy Marie Hake.

  9. I would like to read a few of these books. “Jaded” is a very understandable and relatable topic in the church world today as a scandal with a preacher can break out among any church and it is our choice to forgive a person in leadership if they have fallen from grace in an open area that people see.
