Wednesday’s Word = HOME

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 ‘home’ in the title, but I’m featuring a selection of 43 titles that appeal to me personally, as a way of sharing my book love.

As you view this post, most of us are “at home“. Home is where we should be until this dreadful pandemic has run its course.

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

  3. Morning. I suppose this is true for books in general: Most of the books you list have one or two or three words in the titles.

    Maybe short titles always have been in favor.


    • Interesting observation Neil. As a library fiction cataloger for many years, I have to agree with you. From the reader’s point of view a one, two or three word title is easier to remember. As to all rules of thumb, there are exceptions, but short titles are the norm. Any book with a title of more than six words is considered to have a LONG title.

  4. Loved Long Way Home by Evan Dolan! In fact I loved all the books in that series and wish more people would discover how good they are!

    So many amazing looking books here. I have read several of them, which is rare with these lists, but there are still more that I am adding to my TBR. I especially want to read the Linwood Barclay one. I loved The Home For Unwanted Girls, it takes place in Quebec and I learned about a time that I had heard of, but not been totally aware of. If you haven’t read that one Lynne, I think you would like it.
