Top Ten Tuesday: Books with Names/Character Names In the Titles

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.

This week’s topic is ‘Freebie (come up with your own topic!)’ so I had a quick look through some of the topics from just before I started playing along in February and picked Books with Names/Character Names In the Titles

Anne Rice – The Vampire Lestat
JK Rowling – Harry Potter & The Prisoner Of Azkaban
Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett – Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch Bram Stoker – Dracula
Diana Wynne Jones – Archer’s Goon

Marian Keyes – Rachel’s Holiday (which reminds me, haven’t read the sequel yet!)
Stephen King – Carrie
Rick Riordan – Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief
Ian Mortimer – 1415: Henry V’s Year Of Glory
Jenny Colgan – Looking For Andrew McCarthy

Interestingly, SO many of the books I was coming up with while putting this list together were kids books – Matilda, George’s Marvellous Medicine, James and the Giant Peach, Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, The Jolly Postman, Please Mrs Butler, Stig Of The Dump, Prince Caspian, The Hobbit, Sabriel and so on!
And also classics – Oliver Twist, Jane Eyre, Frankenstein, Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn, Anne of Green Gables, Tom Sawyer, Sherlock Holmes, Alices Adventures In Wonderland, Peter Pan, Romeo & Juliet etc etc!
