Top 10 Tuesday 13th October

on October 13, 2020

Hi and welcome back to another edition of Top 10 Tuesday! Originally created and hosted by The Broke & the Bookish, Top 10 Tuesday now resides with Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. It has a different bookish or literature themed topic each week and this week we are talking:

Top 10 Books With Super Long Names (That I’ve Read Or Want To Read)

1. The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Burrows.

One of my favourite books! I adore this. And do you know for ages, I never read it because I thought the title was so weird?! I didn’t read it until the movie came out and the Australian publisher sent me this copy with the film tie-in cover. I read it on a Sunday afternoon and the very next day, dragged my husband to see the movie and we both loved it too.

2. The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time by Mark Haddon

I read this so long ago now. Over a decade and I barely remember it but I did enjoy it at the time.

3. The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In A Ship Of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente

I haven’t read this but I’ve heard some really amazing things about it and it’s been on my Wishlist for a little while now.

4. Aristotle & Dante Discover The Secrets Of The Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz 

Another one that I really want to read!

5. The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window And Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson

My husband has read this and really loved it and I’ve heard lots of other good things too. It’s on my TBR shelf!

6.  A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers

I’ve had this on my Wishlist since I read The Circle by Dave Eggers.


7. The Statistical Probability Of Love At First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

Loved this book when I read it! It was quite a while ago now (2012 I think!) but I thought it was so cute. I wonder if it’d hold up on a re-read? I haven’t loved a lot of Smith’s other books, maybe this was just her one hit wonder for me.

8. The Sweetness At The Bottom Of The Pie by Alan Bradley

I’ve been curious about this series for a while! I’ve heard some good things.

9. Arkie’s Pilgrimmage To The Next Big Thing by Lisa Walker

This was a fun book about all the “big” things we have here in Australia – google it, we’re obsessed with building big things. The big pineapple, the big banana, the big merino. They’re everywhere!

10. The Strange And Beautiful Sorrows Of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton

I love the title of this! The cover is pretty as well and it sounds interesting.
