Wednesday’s Word = NUMBER

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 ‘NUMBER’ 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.

You’ll note that many of the numbers in these titles are addresses. As readers, aren’t we all just a tiny bit voyeuristic? Don’t we want to know what goes on in other people’s lives? Is it just me?

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

(I’m starting this list off with one of my favourite thrillers read this year!)

Are you tempted by any of these covers?

So many fabulous ones here. Which cover MOST APPEALS to YOU?
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.

    Orphan Number Eight and Nanny at Number 43 attracted me. I never would have thought that there would be so many titles with number in the title.

    For whatever reason, I really like the look of the J. Coe cover to “Number 11.”
    Thanks for sharing these!

    I promised myself I wouldn’t read anymore books with the word Girl in the title. So now it’s numbers. Anyway, enjoy them.
