TTT: Book Titles That Are Complete Sentences

 


Top Ten Tuesday: Book Titles That Are Complete Sentences

A sentence is a grammatically complete idea. All sentences have a noun or pronoun component called the subject, and a verb part called the predicate.

Let's see if I can find any book titles that are complete sentences...






 

 
I found this assignment to be more difficult than I imagined when I started searching for titles with complete sentences. For one thing, I try to only use books I've actually read when creating top ten lists. As I looked through my Goodreads account for titles that would fit the bill it became very evident that complete sentence titles are rare. Hence, notice all the funky titles I resorted to adding to the list. Ha!

  2. Yay! These are great. I realized pretty quickly that most people don't know what a complete sentence is, LOL, but you nailed it!

    1. I've noticed this too as I'm checking out others' lists. I think most people would realize it if they said the title out loud. I hope, anyway.

  3. I always think long book titles are less effective, but then I see your list and I am not sure. There are some amazing books on this list!

  4. I think you came up with a great list! The only one I've read was Are You There God, It's Me Margaret, but you've got a bunch that are on my TBR.

  5. Clap When You Land! Great book and great choices, and I love Aristotle and Dante!

  6. I think this is a great idea for a top ten topic - and you are right, not many books have a complete sentence as the title. Long titles aren't very eye-catching on the spines, I suppose.

  8. All of these are not only sentences, but they are eye-catching sentences. The title makes you open the book...

  10. Great selection! And it comes with an English lesson! Extra bonus. Hum if you don't know the words are still on my kindle and TBR, waiting to be read.

    I had fun with today's prompt: TTT - The new Mary Higgins Clark in 10 sentences

  11. I like how today's topic seems to be bringing out a lot more variety in various lists. I love a list that includes both Maya Angelou and Dr. Seuss!

  16. I initially thought this was going to be a really tough TTT topic, but I was surprised by how many complete sentence titles I was able to find. There are actually quite a lot of them out there. Who knew??

    Happy TTT!
