Top Ten Tuesday: Book Titles That Should Be Band Names

Happy Tuesday!! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is an especially fun one: it asks us to share ten book titles that would make good band names. I had such a blast making this list!

  1. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. I imagine this would be a sort o folksy band entirely comprised of women.
  2. Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. Some nice blues, maybe?
  3. Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen. Definitely an upbeat pop band, probably with some angsty but empowering hits for teens.
  4. Men Without Women by Haruki Murakami. Lots of sad songs coming from this band.
  5. The Falconer by Dana Czapnik. So edgy! So hip! Definitely an up-and-coming solo artist.
  1. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. Gives off some alternative rock vibes to me.
  2. North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell. Maybe a lyrical, folksy duo? (Sort of reminiscent of the duo The Civil Wars?)
  3. Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur. Sort of similar vibes as North and South–I love band names like this where the singers are a duo.
  4. About Grace by Anthony Doerr. Either the singer is someone named Grace OR they solely sing songs about someone–or a dog, perhaps–named Grace.
  5. The Girls by Emma Kline. An excellent, classic name of an all-girl pop band.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this fun Top Ten Tuesday post!

  1. “North and South” were a terrible 90’s boyband in the UK, they had a kids TV show on the BBC and released songs from that. If you want to punish your ears, I’m sure Youtube will have a few music videos haha.

    Little Fires Everywhere would be a brother-sister electronic pop duo.
    Alias Grace would be an actual person named Grace. Probably plays an accordion.
    The Lovely Bones would only ever perform jazz covers of Britney songs.

  2. Oh my god! Ahaha, this was such a fun post to read! Love the descriptions of the bands, they were so fitting!
    “Normal People” for a slightly emo, alt-rock band
    “The Girl on the Train” for some folksy music
    “The Ceremonies” for punky, 80’s music
    ahhh there’s so many when you begin to think about it!


  3. This was a fun one this week, right? Love your choices. Especially Men Without Women. “Lots of sad songs coming from this band.” Ha! And I almost picked Station Eleven, as well. πŸ™‚
