Wednesday’s Word = SING

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.

I know there are thousands of books with the word ‘SING’ in the title, but I’m featuring a small selection of titles that appeal to me personally, as a way of sharing my book love. Two of these titles I’ve read, three others are on my TBR.

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?

If you’ve added even one of these titles to YOUR TBR,
Please let me know in the comments.

    The only one I have read is Where The Crawdads Sing. I do have the Jodi Picoult book on my shelf as well. Not really tempted by any of these though, which is unusual for me.

  3. Hi. I like the cover of the Amy Hempel book the best. It’s not fussy. It gets right to the point. Take care —-

    How do you select a book title?
    In the crime novel “The Bird That Did Not Sing” by Alex Gray. There is a play on the words. It sets the crime novel in Glasgow. “The Bird” is a colloquialism for the woman or girlfriend. So the title says the woman who did not inform or tell.

    But it is also a play on the Glasgow Coat of Arms.
    There’s a tree that never grew,
    There’s the bird that never flew, hence The Bird that did not sing’ reference.
    There’s the fish that never swam,
    There’s a bell that never rang.

    This has nothing to do with the crime fiction, but the title firmly places the novel in the Tartan Noir genre.

    How many titles have a similar story behind them?
