Wednesday’s Word = HOTEL

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 hundreds of books with the word ‘HOTEL’ 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.  I’ve only read one of the following titles but several of them 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.

  2. That is indeed a word that appears often. I’ve only read The Paragon Hotel though and really enjoyed my time with it. A must-read, if you ask me! 😀

  3. I have read a few of these. Queenie Malone’s Paradise Hotel was one of my favourite books of last year. And Ruth Hogan’s Sally Red Shoes made the list the previous year!

  4. I have four of these on my TBR list but have only read one: Hotel by Arthur Hailey. I loved it when I was in high school – not sure if that would still be the case today. I’ve also read and loved Vicki Baum’s Grand Hotel upon which the 1932 film of the same name was based. I read the book years after watching the movie and had such fun picturing the Barrymores (John & Lionel) & Garbo in their roles.

  5. Yay good to see Best Exotic Marigold on the list! I’m currently reading The Carer by the same author, Deborah Moggach. I’m only a few chapters in, but I’m intrigued. I’ve seen the movie of Best Exotic and the book is on my TBR. Apparently it’s a bit different to the film so I look forward to that 😊

    I can’t believe I have not read any of these books. I have a couple on my TBR and saw the movie The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel though. Being Canadian, I have to put The Lonely Hearts Hotel by Heather O’Neill on my list, even though I haven’t read it yet. Another great post that tempts me to add to my TBR.

    On your list I read The Hotel on the Corner and Bittersweet as well as the Paragon Hotel. Loved both of them.

    Loved Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet!
    Not in the title but a great hotel book is The Beautiful Strangers by Camille Di Maio set at the historic and beautiful Hotel Del Coronado in Southern California!

  10. All of these look terrific.

    I don’t have a written TBR because that stresses me out, but I would gladly pick up and devour any one of these if it was available.

    Also, doesn’t The Shining take place in a hotel?
    I believe that J.K. Rowling also has a novel for adults with hotel in the title … and I feel like there might be a hotel-themed title in the long, terrific No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith.
    Also Agatha Christie has got to have a hotel title or two.

    • Thanks Jennifer. All good and valid points. I’ll have to do another post with books that are set in a hotel. There are several which do NOT have the word HOTEL in the title. King’s “The Shining” is one and “Evergreen Falls” by Kimberley Freeman is another.
      So pleased you enjoyed this post. ♥
