Tiny Navajo Reads: Top Ten Books with Single-Word Titles


March 3, 2020 by TinyNavajo

Hi guys! It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday! TTT was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

And I actually have some time to write a Top Ten Tuesday! Rejoice! Anyway, today’s top for TTT is books with single-word titles. This sounds like such an interesting one, I kind of have to make time in order to talk about it. So, here we go!


Sourdough by Robin Sloan


Dragonsong by Anne McCaffrey


Scythe by Neal Shusterman


Sabriel by Garth Nix


Orleans by Sherri Smith


Binti by Nnedi Okorafor


Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman


Skyward by Brandon Sanderson


East by Edith Pattou


Taproot by Keezy Young

These are all books that I have read and enjoyed and they all have just a single word for their title. Sometimes this works beautifully, and you know right away what the book is about. Sometimes, it doesn’t and you have to read the book to figure out what exactly the title means. I enjoy it both ways, when the book titles tells me what’s going on as well as when I have to read the book to figure out what the title means in the context of the story. And those that I had to read to know have been some of my absolute favourites!

What are some of your favourite single word titles? Why do they jump out at you? Comment below and let me know! I’m always ready for a new read!

      It was honestly a little hard for me to come up with 10 single word titles…I seem to go for books that are long and complicated and that reflects in their titles. But the ones I have read are the ones I enjoyed quite a bit!
