Top Ten Tuesday – Books With a Unit of Time In the Title


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is Books With a Unit of Time In the Title (seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, eternity, etc.) (Submitted by RS @ The Idealistic Daydream).  This is one of those topics that makes me wonder how many book titles actually fit this description.  Will we see a lot of duplicates as we blog hop or will we see more titles with units of time in them than we ever could have imagined?  I’m leaning toward the second option, especially since I always end up amazed by the variety of books we all come up with. 🙂

    What an intriguing spread of books! And how effectively these titles reflect our obsession with time:)). I haven’t read any of them, but will be trawling through my own collection to see how many time words crop up in titles. Thank you for sharing, Suzanne:).

    We have a few overlaps, but the majority of them are different! I totally missed This Time Next Year on my shelves! And it literally has the word time in the title, SMH.

    You have some great titles here! I haven’t read any of these yet, but One Day in December made my list too and is on my TBR, and the Chanel Cleeton books are on my TBR too 🙂

    One Day in December has such a nice cover, I love that art style. This time sounds like a good read too. Reminds me of the movie Seems Like Old Times, although I don’t know if the premises are similar. Okay I just looked… nope, they’re pretty different. lol Still sounds fun!

    I am so happy with how many times I have seen One Day in December today. That was my gateway to Josie Silver. No regrets. My second spotting of the Jessica Park book too. I like her books

    I have not read any of these, I don’t think. I added the Kristin Hannah one to my TBR list. I struggled with today’s topic, it was harder, but interesting.

    Great list Suzanne. I have read and enjoyed One Day in December, In Five Years, and Every Fifteen Minutes. I have a couple of the others on my TBR. Nice mix of titles.
