Judge A Book By Its Title

Okay, like the book covers yesterday, today I will list all of my favorite titles.  Not all of these are books I've read.  Some are on my to-read list.  Naturally, the majority genre is romance.  Mainly because romance writers can pick a title.

10.  A Reputable Rake by Diane Gaston.  Historical Romance.  The title's oxymoronic.  The big thing about Victorian Era romance is that "reformed rakes make the best husbands" so it makes the list.  Yes, I've read it. It would make Victoria Alexander proud. ;-)

9.  One Good Knight by Mercedes Lackey.  LUNA Fantasy.  This is one of those books where you have to know what it's about.  This particular Tales from the Five Hundred Kingdoms revolves around the Western-style fairy tales.  Dragons, knights, and the Ragged Company (Robin Hood).  Read it.  Loved it.

8.  My Fair Godmother by Janette Rallison.  Teen Fantasy.  Honestly, before I read what the book was about, I thought the godmother was prettier than our protagonist and stole her boyfriend or something.  *shrug*  But it's still a catchy title.  Just read the sequel.

7.  The Dragon and the George by Gordon R. Dickson.  SF/F--not sure what it's considered, really.  It's supposed to be "St. George and the Dragon," but it's not.  Actually, a george is the draconic term for any human.  Cool.  About to read it.

6.  Nectar from a Stone by Jane Guill.  Historical fiction.  I said I didn't like the cover, but the title is what made me want to read it.  And then once I read the back...well...Gwydion, Wales, 1351...

5.  Blue Like Jazz:  Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality by Donald Miller.  Christian Nonfiction.  Seriously, saw the title and wanted to read it.  I have it, but I haven't read the entire thing yet.

4.  Goodnight Tweetheart by Teresa Medeiros.  Contemporary Romance.  Just imagine it, a whole romance book that revolves around Twitter.  As soon as I can find it, I'm getting it.

3.  Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John.  YA.  The title is awesome.  It just grabs you and makes you want to read it.

2.  Charming the Prince by Teresa Medeiros.  Historical Romance.  Prince Charming?  No.  Instead of handsome hunk charming a young lady, we have a young lady bewitching the man.  So so fun.  On one of my Victoria Alexander books, Teresa Medeiros had a blurb, and it said, "Bestselling Authors of Charming the Prince."  Seriously, had to read that title.

1.  Her Highness, My Wife by Victoria Alexander.  Historical Romance.  I remember when I first started reading her and I saw this on the "Books by Victoria Alexander" list.  Hmph.  Sounds interesting.  With a title like that, it had to be good.
