Wednesday’s Word = PAST

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 ‘past’ 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.

The reason I chose ‘past‘ as this week’s word is because during the holiday season we often reminisce about the past and the people we loved who are gone.

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?

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.

    Several of these look interesting, but I agree that many look dark. Some are lighter like Postcards from the Past.

  2. I don’t think I’ve read any of these but the cover of Postcards from the Past is very appealing.

    Good lord. I’ve never seen so many “Past” titles in my life. I wonder how many times the word “Love” is used in titles. Great post!

    I notice that many of the covers depict a darkness as if the past was always sad or fearful.
    Interesting choice.
