TTT: Books with Geographical Terms in the Title

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I've Recently Read with Geographical Terms in the Title

Sea of Tranquility by Emily St. John Mandel

The Island of Sea Women by Lisa See

The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune

Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

All Thirteen: The Incredible Cave Rescue of the Thai Boys Soccer Team by Christina Soontornvat

The Cat from Telegraph Hill by  Edith Thacher Hurd

Inland by Tea Obreht

On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan

Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys

This was a hard task. I only found nine books on my 'recently read' list (going back as far as Jan. 2019) which contain geographical terms. I avoided any terms which were man-made, geological, or astrological. I stuck to the list of terms on Wikipedia. In order to fill out my list I found one more title from my 'want to read' list:


A Swim in the Pond in the Rain by George Saunders
