Book Titles with Numbers

Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is Top Ten Book Titles with Numbers In Them. I'm taking some liberties with this and including words indicating a place in a list, like first, second, third, etc. Also, I'm including titles in which the number is spelled out. Because that is still a number?

1st Grave

First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones - This series is now up to 13 graves! I stopped at like, 7. But this is a fun series. And the covers are spectacular.

One of Us is Lying
Two Can Keep a Secret

One of Us Is Lying and Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus - I lumped these two together since they are by the same author. Supposedly, they are not in the same series, but they look a lot alike.

One For the Money

One for the Money by Janet Evanovich - We all know how I feel about this series. And number 26 is coming out next month.


1Q84 by Haruki Murakami - So this book is weird. Really weird. The title is supposed to be reminiscent of 1984 by George Orwell. And I heard that the Japanese character for Q is a lot like the Japanese character for 9.

Swans of 5th Avenue

The Swans of Fifth Avenue by Melanie Benjamin - Here is another book I love! Truman Capote and his group of New York Society women.

Five Days

Five Days at Memorial by Sheri Fink - This book tore my heart out. It recounts the five days following Hurricane Katrina at Memorial Hospital in New Orleans with now power, no running water, and only the staff who were on duty when the hurricane hit.

Seven Husbands

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid - Such a great book! Evelyn Hugo was a screen starlet in the 50's and 60's. Now she wants to tell her story to a young journalist. Her tale is fascinating!

Eighth Grade Bites

Eighth Grade Bites by Heather Brewer - This book is super fun. Vladimir Tod has all the usual problems of a young teenager. Plus, he's half vampire. So not only does he have to worry about girls and acne, he has to avoid the vampire hunter who is seeking him out.

13th tale

The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield - This is the first book that came to mind when I was making this list. Love it!

84 Charing Cross Road

84 Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff - Of course.

There is my 10 books with numbers in the titles. Do you have any to add?
