Top Ten Tuesday: Frequently Used Words In Fantasy Titles


Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to the first Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week's topic is Frequently Used Words In [Insert Genre/Age Group] Titles.  I'm going with fantasy titles that begin with "The Girl" and I'm breaking down my list by books I've read books and books on my TBR.  Here we go:

Read Books:









Books On My TBR:














Have you ever read any of these books?  What words or phrases have you noticed that are commonly used in books?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!

  1. After putting my list together, I realized "girl" was probably a word I could have used (I spotted about 3 without looking hard). But oh well. Next time, right!? ;)

  4. Yes, girl is a very common word for titles in this genre. I wonder if there are just as many YA books whose titles include the word boy?

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thanks!

  5. I didn't realize how many "The Girl" titles are out there until I read your post! It makes you wonder if publishers deliberately use certain words and phrases to make a book successful😊

  6. Ha! I chose girl, too, but did genres other than fantasy. It seems to be a WAY over used word in titles. Time for authors to move on to something new!

  10. This is true with thriller/suspense books too I think! A lot of them have "Girl" (or "Woman" or "Daughter") in the title for sure. I did cozy mysteries for my list this week.

  11. Girl is definitely being talked about a lot today. I have 5 pages of "girl" books on my GR read shelf myself, though, I have on read The Girl of Fire and Thorns from your list (which is one of my favorite series).

  12. Wow I love your take on this list, I never would have thought of doing a list that starts with the same two words! I can't believe you found 10, I would have struggled doing it this way I think.
