Top Ten Tuesday: Named Novels

Happy Tuesday!! Today’s Top Ten Tuesday theme (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) is Frequently Used Words in (Genre) Titles. If you’ve followed this blog for any length of time then you’ve probably noticed that I adore classic literature. In typical Holly fashion, today I’ll be sharing ten classic novels with names as their titles. This might sound like a rather narrow, niche topic, but you’d be surprised how many of them there actually are!

What are your thoughts on the books I’ve mentioned? What other novels have names as their titles? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. There are lots of books that have part of a name in them too! I finished Frankie recently, I’m rereadng the Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavendar and hopefully I’ll soon get to read The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock.

      1. Yes well finding the motivation is the tough part at the moment, I do mean I started it probably over 10 years ago 😅 I have a pretty copy though so maybe I’ll challenge myself to get though it all sometime!

  2. Ah, you included so many books I read or I want to read very soon! For example, during high school years, I read Emma, Jane Eyre, Madame Bovary, and Anna Karenina. And on my to-read list I have Ulysses and Mrs. Dallaway 🙂 And Robinson Crusoe was one of the first novels I read, making me fall in love with reading ❤ This post brings back so many bookish memories …

    1. Glad to hear someone else really enjoys Robinson Crusoe! I had to read it for my Intro to Literature class when I first started college and so many of my classmates disliked it. I think it’s such an interesting book, especially to study!

    1. I haven’t read it, but I’ve been meaning to for AGES. It’s on so many reading lists for classes but for some reason I’ve managed to not ever have been assigned to read it.


  3. This is such a good choice for this week Holly! I went for words and naming conventions used in YA fantasy, but I really like your topic. I’ve read Jane Eyre and really enjoyed it, but I still really need to read Emma – I’ve been meaning to pick it up for over a year. Nice post! 🙂

    1. Right!! There are SO MANY. I realized it when I was taking my Victorian literature tutorial in the fall… so many of the books mentioned in lectures were just names!
