TTT: Books I enjoyed reading with numbers in their titles.
1. This One Summer by Mariko Tamaki and Jillian Tamaki---a wonderful coming-of-age tale in the graphic novel format.
2. I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore---Not especially well-written but an exciting YA series, each one contains a number in the title.
3. Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegutt---A classic, surrealist look at the horrors of war.
4. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel---A post apocalyptic world. I think about this book every day.
5. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez---It's a tough book to read because it is so strange but it is worth the struggle. It is actually quite a amazing.
6. And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie---The first Christie novel I read. It is a very good mystery.
7. 1984 by George Orwell---Not only a number, but a date. The date which all this creepy surveillance stuff was controlling everyone. It is cringe-worthy to think how so much of it is coming true.
8. One Day by David Nicholls---All the doings in the book happen on the same date every few years.
9. The #1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith---Mma Romatswe is a detective in Botswana. It is both funny and charming.
10. The Final Four by Paul Volponi---two basketball players on different teams who are in the NCAA basketball tournament. Very well-done, especially for sports lovers.
11. A Thousand Splendid Sun by Haled Hosseini---by the author of the Kit Runner. Very eye-opening and horrifying about two women living in Afghanistan.
12. One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss---a personal favorite.
13. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield---an exciting mystery we read in book club several years ago.
