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.
