Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Give Different Titles To


Happy Tuesday everyone!  Welcome to the Top Ten Tuesday now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.  This week's topic is Books I’d Give Different Titles To (and tell us what title you’d pick!).  I'm doing something a bit different and sharing Titles That Could Have Been. Here we go:

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald - The High-Bouncing Lover

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck - Something That Happened

1984 by George Orwell - The Last Man in Europe

Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell - Mules in Horses' Harness

Dracula by Bram Stoker - The Dead Un-Dead

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - Alice's Adventures Under Ground

Alternate Titles In Other Countries:

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon - Cross Stitch

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin - The Collected Works of A.J. Fikry

The Wilding Sisters by Eve Chase - The Vanishing of Audrey Wilde

Mr. Flood's Last Resort by Jess Kidd - The Hoarder


What are some of your favorite alternative titles?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!

  4. I have the Cross Stitch edition of Outlander from when I was a teen, I think I prefer the old title, I feel it fits more with the rest of the titles.

    1. Personally I prefer Outlander as the title, but Cross Stitch does fit more with the rest in comparison to them.

  5. The Hoarder is a great title. Short, sweet, and to the point.

    My TTT.

    This Tuesday seems like you had one difficult topic. I have no idea what I'd post if I was participating.

    1. It just doesn't quite have the ring to it.

      It was so hard to think of them.

  11. Looks like The Great Gatsby isn't a very popular title. Some of your retitles are pretty funny. :-)

  12. I drew a blank on this topic at first, your titles make a lot more sense than mine. https://pmprescott.blogspot.com/

  13. You did a good job this week. I didn't even know where to begin, so I didn't. The High-Bouncing Lover still has me giggling.

  14. The Dead Un-Dead had me laughing my butt off!

  15. Ooh fun way to do this topic. Something That Happened is intriguing, but I like that it's Of Mice and Men.
