  1. Great post! Isn't it neat how those words show up so much? I have a feeling "girl" in particular would be in a ton of mine, too!

  3. You're going to have to tell me how you used Google to do this! I also used Google, but I just searched my shelves for random words I thought of. Is there an easier way to do this!? Girl/Girls was my most popular as well. :)

    1. I didn't do anything magical. I just typed in words to the search bar under the books I've read and then counted the titles. Some were weird and I dismissed them For example I search CAT and it gave me every book I'd read by Cat Winters or Cathy somebody. Ha!

  4. After putting mine together, I noticed I probably had ten books using "girl," but oh well! That's for another post, right? :)

    Thanks for visiting Finding Wonderland, Anne.

  5. I used "girl" because it was super quick and easy ha ha! This is great though, interesting that "book"and "world" had so many, but it makes sense!

  6. Interesting how you figured this out. I am very curious about “girl.” Why is it so common these days?

    1. I'm guessing that there are so many titles with GIRLS in them because the main readers in high school are girls?!

  12. I find it kind of amusing that there are so many books with the word book in them. Great way to find out frequently used words in the books you pick up.

  13. Wow I wish I had your reading gusto. I thought I was doing pretty good with having 8 books with the same word in them hahaha

    1. I've been tracking my books on Goodread since half way through 2009, nearly 1000 books.

  14. I also used Goodreads to come up with my list - though it was more so for the books I was going to showcase. I already knew which words show up the most among my fave topics. Great list!
