Wednesday’s word = Broken (Cover Love redux)

No, I’m not giving up on my Cover Love posts. In fact I have over 40 of them ready to go. I just thought it would be sort of fun to concentrate on title words for a change – instead of pictures.  Most readers will acknowledge that some words reappear time and time again in titles.  Often these words are associated with a particular genre.  Case in point: “The girl on the train” and “Gone girl” spawned countless thriller titles with the word ‘girl’ in the title.

Today, for the second edition of Wednesday Word, I’ve chosen the word “Broken“.  I know there are countless books with the word broken in the title. I’m featuring 20 fairly recent titles that appeal to me personally, as a way of sharing my book love. Some of these titles I’ve read, the rest are on my TBR.

(I’ve limited myself to 20 titles as I tend to get carried away. LOL)

Just click on the cover to read the book’s synopsis from Goodreads.
You might just find your next favorite book!

Are you tempted by any of these covers?

Have you read one of these titles and absolutely LOVED it?

Please let me know in the comments.

    I have read four of them. I absolutely love The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend. Going from one genre to another I also enjoyed The Broken Girls. That is a word I had not realized was in so many titles. You do the greatest posts about this kind of stuff Lynne.

    I’m probably in the minority here, but I didn’t care for The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend; I only got about half-way before giving up on it. I’ve got The Broken Girls on my TBR pile.

    Does anyone else get tired of seeing the same words used in so many titles? One of the groups I’m in mentioned the word”girl” and how tired they were of book titles with that word in it.

    I loved the Nicole Baart book and Broken Girls. Several of these look tempting. Does that mean “broken” is a hook? Great post!


  6. I don’t know what your rules are for authors suggesting their own titles, but my first book is Broken In: A Novel in Stories by Jadi Campbell.

    Thank you,

    Good call. I loved Broken Bones and I have The Broken Girls to read. I’ve really enjoyed Tammy Cohen’s, James Carol’s and Linwood Barclay’s books too. I’ve also heard great things about Tana French, Karin Slaughter and Stuart McBride.
    There was a post a while ago for Top Ten Tuesday about common words and I had a go but hadn’t spotted how many Brokens there were!
