Wednesday’s Word = YEAR

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 ‘year’ 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.

It IS January after all, the beginning of a new year. No better time to use year as Wednesday’s Word.

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

and, although I rarely read non-fiction, here is the only non-fiction title on my TBR that contains the word ‘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.

    I read The Last Year of the War and really liked it. I recommend, The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared. One of my favourites.

  8. Always great seeing a Maeve Binchy title—and one that I still need to read, at that! And I’m adding A Year of Pleasures to my TBR pile. It sounds fantastic. Great post!
