Today’s Topic: Book Titles with Numbers In Them
Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl
Well, this week’s prompt was a fun one, but not as easy as I thought it would be. There are so many books that use the number one in the title. However, it’s not as easy with other numbers.
Three – It’s been so long since I read this thriller, that I’ve forgotten most of it. With the Halloween season coming, it’s the perfect time for a re-read.
Sixty Acres and a Bride – The biblical tale of Ruth gets an update with a Mexican widow who returns with her mother-in-law to Texas. It game me a new compassion for immigrants.
Every Frenchman Has One -Rarely has a celebrity written a wittier, fun to read book. Olivia deHavilland wows with this little gem about her adjustment to living in Paris as an American.
99 Percent Mine – Sadly this sophomore effort didn’t live up to the hype of the author’s debut novel. I had no sympathy at all for the heroine.
The House of Five Fortunes – This was a random purchase for me and interesting tale of an inter-racial relationship in historical San Francisco’s Chinatown.
The 49th Mystic – I haven’t read this Dekker novel yet, but I was a fan of its’ predecessor series, The Circle.
Lady of A Thousand Treasures – I’ve enjoyed this author’s books in the past and am a fan of books set in the Victorian era.
Love in Three Quarter Time – Fractions are numbers too. This is the story that made me fall in love with Vienna and turned me into a hardcore Rachel McMillan fan.
Between Two Shores – This historical has been sitting on my TBR list too long already.
12 Days at Bleakly Manor – Enjoyed this holiday short mystery inspired by Dickens’ writing style.

12 Days at Bleakly Manor does sound interesting!
It really is interesting and has an almost spooky mystery in an equally spooky setting.
I’m intrigued by Sixty Acres and a Bride.
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.
I’ve heard lots of so-so things about Sally Thorne’s follow up book, but someday I plan to try her debut since that one gets all kinds of hype!
Her debut The Hating Game was really good. I would recommend it. Just be aware it’s not a “clean” read.
I spy some favs! I didn’t think of Lady of a Thousand Treasures for me list. I LOVED it!
I haven’t had a chance to read Lady…yet. I’m glad to hear you enjoyed it.
