30 People I Have Yet To Meet (and 13 people I’ve met already)

I have been perusing my Goodreads TBR and noticed that several of my anticipated titles have both the first and last names of a person in their titles. Hence, I’m now sharing with you 30 of those titles in case you would like to meet these people too. ♥

I find it interesting that although there are a few thriller titles here, these books are mostly what would fall into the literary fiction genre, and many could be considered ‘Uplit‘. As is my usual practice, I’ve linked the book cover graphic to Goodreads so you can investigate if you are interested.

So that was the 30 people I have yet to meet…. AND, here are the …. people that I have already had the pleasure of meeting. With these, the books I’ve already read, you will find a link to my reviews underneath the graphic.My review of “Eudora Honeysett is Quite Well Thank You”My review of “Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine”My review of “The Forgotten Letters of Esther Durrant”My review of “The Story of Arthur Truluv”My review of “The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen, 83 1/4 Years Old”My review of “This Is Your Life Harriet Chance”"The storied life of A.J. Fikry" by Gabrielle ZevinMy review of “The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry”My review of “Lillian Boxfish Takes A Walk”

And to end the post, some titles that I’ve read before I started the blog. Favorites that will remain in my heart forever…Gracelin O'Malley by Ann Moore

Do you find book titles that include names pique your interest? Do you have any titles on your TBR that include both first and last names? Happy Reading!

    I have read a few of your yet to meet and a few on the list that you already met, Lynne. I definitely recommend The Last List of Ms. Judith Kratt. It was excellent. I have several on my TBR that I had forgotten about, so a reminder is always great.

    There’s definitely a trend towards names in uplit – no idea how or why that happened, but it’s going strong! I’m yet to meet Evvie Drake and Nina Hill and Evelyn Hugo too, but looking forward to it!

  4. I’m not sure that the use of full names in a title actually adds to my interest in a book, but it certainly doesn’t detract from it. Very interesting post!

    I have Lillian Boxfish on my autumn reading list.

    What a great post! Lord knows, I’ve “met” my fair share of unforgettable literary characters but there are definitely a lot that stands out.

    It seems quite the thing to have full names in a book title right now doesn’t it? One on my list for later this year is Emily Noble’s Disgrace by Mary Paulson-Ellis – who also wrote The Inheritance of Solomon Farthing 😊
