Top Ten Tuesday: Frequently Used Words In YA Titles

Top Ten Tuesday is a blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week there’s a new given topic and you post your top ten list that goes with the subject. This weeks topic is “Frequently Used Words In [Insert Genre/Age Group] Titles” and I, of course, did YA since that’s my niche. This one was a lot of fun to do because I had so many in mind and I just crack myself up thinking that if you swapped many YA titles around, you’d get some that match almost identically. What’s the moral of the story here folks? Creativity sometimes isn’t always key??!

Dang that sounded super petty so lets just move on to the list:

Do you agree with some of the words I listed above? What are other words that you think show up a LOT in YA titles? Are you sick of any of these or do you see some that you wish were used more? Until next time,

Happy Reading! ♡xoxo

  1. I really like how so many bloggers are featuring multiple words. I featured only one word. 😀 Oh, well, next time.

    Later on, I noticed I seemed to have quite a few books on my shelf with the word “girl” in them, and now you mention it, I bet I own a few with “star” or “stars” too. 🙂

    1. bahah i’m sure yours is perfect as it is (i’m literally about to go comment on it rn)! & IKR. ‘girl’ and ‘star’ weren’t ones that I thought of right away but once I realized so many of my books have them in the titles, I had to include them on the list!

  2. Love the similarities you found! I think that because of these specific words, it actually draws my attention to the book, since it reminds me of previous ones I read with the same words? If that makes sense lol. So I don’t think it’s necessarily a bad thing!

  3. Ooh I like “deep” (wouldn’t have thought of that one) and “stars” and “heart” are great too. This is such a fun topic! You picked some great example too! And it would be a blast to switch YA titles around randomly or something and see what teh results were.

  4. I never really thought of this much before, but now I that I am aware of the trend, I cannot stop thinking about it. I just filtered my GR “read” shelf and had five pages of books with “girl” in the title. These are the books I read, never mind the other ones that are out there.
