TTT - Books I Read or Bought Strictly Because of the Title

The top 10 weekly meme used to be hosted by The Broke and the Bookish they  handed over the reins to ThatArtsyReaderGirl who can be found HERE.  Each week she will focus on lists which cover various topics related to books and reading.

So we all know I jumped the gun and did this week's topic last week.  You can see my alternative titles HERE if you missed them.  So this week I'm sharing books I read or bought strictly because of the title.

So it may have been a combination of title and the cover.  It was so worth the read.

I remember clearly seeing this one at my library and grabbing it without even seeing what it was about.  At the time I don't know if I'd made the Joe Hill/Stephen King connection yet either.

I haven't read it yet but with a title like this, how could I NOT add it to the TBR?

When I saw this book, I immediately wanted to know more about this last woman.  So glad I read it and I highly recommend this book.

This title says it all!

I took a chance on this one and it paid off.

I need to know more about this book and added it to this year's Christmas list without even reading the synopsis.

Seriously, first the title, then the cover.  Who cares what it is about!

When I added this to my wishlist, there was no cover and no synopsis.  All I saw was the title and then the author.  That's all I need.

Key word - spellbook 😃

Awesome word play - and cute pup.

So there you have it.  And apparently this week I can't count because here's eleven!
