Best Books With Numbers In The Title*
Shock and awe! The asterisk is not because I’m breaking any rules! I’m behaving. It is because I have read and reviewed all but one of the books in today’s list! I’ll save my prediction book for last. 1-4 Will not be in any particular order. Again, since I’ve reviewed the first four books, I will keep it short and sweet (reviews and interviews linked) leaving the fun for #5! Who said 3 is the magic number? Oh yes! That fun song that one of my favorite British bands covered, Embrace.
Quick fun story (road trip, even)– I once camped out with Embrace on the cost of St. Ives… and then attended one of their “secret gigs.” The fourth one, I think. It was in a cave by St. Ives. Also, I had lost my voice flying to London and Danny wanted me to sing along and I couldn’t and I think he thought I was snubbing him and <weeps>. Ah, good times! I promise you there is NO WAY to listen this and not feel a bubble of happiness.
1) Eight Will Fall by Sara Harian
2) Tenth Girl By Sara Faring
Pssst…. Her new book (I CAN’T WAIT) White Fox is releases September 22- Goodreads link
How I loved this book! Like the above I was thrilled to review the book and interview the mad genius behind it! Here is the review for Tenth Girl and the interview with Sara Faring! Maybe lightning will strike twice in the fall?!
3 and 4) Ninth House and Six of Crows- by Madam Leigh Bardugo
This is a really low quality image. My apologies. BUT hey Leah (go check out her awesome site), one of these copies of Ninth House are YOURS. Don’t fear. It is a horrible photo.
Well you had to see this coming. Or you aren’t paying attention. No. I haven’t “officially” reviewed Six of Crows because it was before this website’s time but do I need to, really? When the lead search on my website for a course of time was “Is Kaz Brekker a sadist,” I think that pretty much says it all. Well that says a lot about more than me and Six of Crows, but another story for another day. If you want to just search Six of Crows or Kaz or whatever there is a rabbit hole of posts talking about both. And if you don’t know – my license plate says Kaz… Now… HERE is my review of Ninth House.
5) One By One- Ruth Ware– Goodreads Link– GO GO GO
I’m already finding the five hours in a day to book out where I can just sit back and let it all go. If you missed it during last year’s Summer Fling? Turn of the Key destroyed me in five hours flat, middle of the day, sitting by a pool. I don’t even think I blinked. Luckily, although I haven’t added my ARC yet, One by One is going to squeeze into this year’s Spring/Summer Fling just barely. It releases on September 8th which is the week of Labor Day. That is the last week of the whole shebang.
Speaking of which, if you were wondering, the next official Spring/Summer Fling 2020 update will be before Memorial Day, just at the end of Spring/start of summer. That seemed seemed fitting.
What are you favorite books with numbers in the titles? Have you read any of the ones in my list?
