Book Title Buzzwords | THORN

Book Title Buzzwords

I love noticing title trends in the YA world (and in adult books too!) and I can also tell that there are certain words I latch onto. Book Title Buzzwords features books that I’ve read (or want to read) that follow some recent trends! 

The live action Beauty and the Beast movie is coming out SO SOON so let’s talk about some rose-inspired books on the thorny side! I recently finished THE GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS so the name is fresh in my head and I’ve noticed a few other books that have had the same thorny trend too!

EVERY ROSE HAS ITS THORN…

THE GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS by Rae Carson | Book one in the Fire and Thorns trilogy Penguin| September 20, 2011

This book was so incredibly hyped for me — just from years and years of people reading it! It was fresh on the scene when I first started blogging and was a big fantasy series that I wasn’t quite ready for as a fantasy-newbie at the time.
I just picked this up on audio in an Audible sale a few weeks ago and loved the narrator (Jennifer Ikeda) but was surprised to find that I didn’t love the book. Maybe I’ve grown too used to hardened female warriors because Elisa seemed very soft and naive. I don’t need all female heroines to be badass from the start but I found it hard to get along with Elisa for an extended period of time. I think I ended up being the black sheep (yet again) on this one because it incorporated to many plot elements that I’m just not a fan of and it took a lot away for me.

ACOTAR cover

A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES by Sarah J. Maas | Book one in the Court of Thorns and Roses series | Bloomsbury | May 5, 2015

I absolutely adored ACOTAR when it came out! I was so impressed how Sarah J. Maas had written two fae fantasy worlds and they didn’t feel the same. Feyre and Celaena had similar traits and yet they felt like two very distinct characters. (Well, they did until their next books, for me anyway.) I have since fallen out of love with Sarah J. Maas’ books from the past couple reads but I really was surprised how much I loved this one when it first came out! I wasn’t even a fan of fae worlds and yet A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES totally swept me away!

PRINCE OF THORNS by Mark Lawrence | Book one of The Broken Empire series | Penguin | August 2, 2011

Am I complaining about a third thorn-book? Apparently I am. (Sorry, guys. When I started this, I hadn’t realized how many I didn’t get along with.) PRINCE OF THORNS also comes highly-praised and yet it also comes with words of warning. I’m all for an anti-hero but Jorg was really something else in this book. It was like reading about Joffrey, except somehow we were supposed to root for him. Granted, I didn’t keep going with the book so things might have settled down a but and I could have grown to like some characters and situations but it was veyr brutal and very graphic to get into with the first few chapters! That’s not something that usually bothers me but a lot of it seemed like too much and didn’t really seem useful to the plot.

THE THORN OF EMBERLAIN by Scott Lynch

Book Title Buzzwords | HEART

Book Title Buzzwords

I love noticing title trends in the YA world (and in adult books too!) and I can also tell that there are certain words I latch onto. Book Title Buzzwords features books that I’ve read (or want to read) that follow some recent trends! 

HEARTLESS is here and it had me thinking of all of the books that have similar themes. “Heart” is a pretty common word for a book title and I love how each of these books features it in a little different way! Here are some of the “heart” titles that I’ve noticed recently!

FROM THE HEART…

heartless marissa meyerHEARTLESS | Macmillan| November 8, 2016

Naturally one of the first “heart” books I thought of was HEARTLESS! I just came out (on my wedding anniversary!) even though I read the ARC almost as soon as I got it! I absolutely love Marissa Meyer and The Lunar Chronicles is one of my favorite series ever so I was very excited for HEARTLESS! I didn’t love it as much as I had hoped but I’m also not a big Alice in Wonderland fan so that had a lot to do with it! The book is much closer to the original story than The Lunar Chronicles — more of a retelling in truth (or prequel, rather) than an adaptation based on a story, so that was neat! I was expecting more of an adaption so I was a bit surprised but the book was still very enjoyable. I think those who are more into whimsy and the original Alice tale will love it!

Steelheart
STEELHEART by Brandon Sanderson | Book one in the Reckoners trilogy | Random House | September 24, 2013

Brandon Sanderson became a favorite of mine after I read MISTBORN (the first book of his that I read) and I quickly inhaled anything I could find that he’s written. I had forgotten I received an ARC of STEELHEART from the publisher for the longest time since I didn’t know who Sanderson was at the time and eventually actually grabbed it on audiobook. Macleod Andrews, who is one of my favorite audiobook narrators, does this series and both books and narration are absolutely fantastic. If you haven’t read any Sanderson books, these are a lot of fun and a great YA option if you’re still iffy about starting an adult fantasy.

The Book of Broken Hearts - Sarah OcklerTHE BOOK OF BROKEN HEARTS | Simon & Schuster | May 21, 2013

It’s been a while since I read this book but I was just oh so in love with it! I still hate the cover (what a stock photo! And so not relevant to the book) but the contents are much, much better. Sarah Ockler does an amazing job with every single relationship in this book, from parents to siblings to friends to romance. I just loved how much each character really cared and the personalities just leaped off the pages. The romance was also so swoony, with a little bad boy with a heart of gold. Plus the addition of the location (Colorado) and subject matter (motorcycles) were near and dear to my heart from my own experience with my husband. This was such a beautiful novel and one I still recommend years later!

Fall is here, Halloween is almost upon us, and the days are getting shorter. What better time to talk about shadows!? It’s a word I’ve seen in a lot of books titles lately and let’s be honest… they’re all pretty good books, plus plenty more I want to read!

FROM THE SHADOWS…

Shadow and BoneSHADOW AND BONE | Book one in The Grisha Trilogy | Macmillan| June 5, 2012

SHADOW AND BONE is the first book I think of when it comes to shadows. I read this shortly after its debut and just loved it. I quickly became obsessed with the series and Leigh Barudgo has been one of my most favorite authors ever since! If you’re unfamilar with the series, it’s a fantasy world with Russian inspiration. Leigh Bardugo’s magic system is wonderful, entertaining, although magical, also scientific. I just love the complex relationships throughout the series and how each character really grows and changes. If you haven’t yet picked up this series, you totally should! I wasn’t super into fantasy when I started it so it’s great for those easing into the genre as well!

Queen of ShadowsQUEEN OF SHADOWS by Sarah J. Maas | Book four in the Throne of Glass series | Bloomsbury | September 3, 2016

QUEEN OF SHADOWS is my favorite book in the Throne of Glass series so far. If you’re not familiar with the series, the fifth book, EMPIRE OF STORMS, just released this September and the last book in the series will likely come out next fall if the pattern continues and everything stays on schedule. Sarah J. Maas does some amazing plotting, connecting all the books together in QUEEN OF SHADOWS and builds some amazing character relationships as well. I think this is her best work out of any of her books she’s written and although there were some things in EMPIRE OF STORMS that I didn’t totally love, I’m still really excited to see how she wraps up this series!

ShadowlandsSHADOWLANDS | Book one of the Shadowlands Trilogy | Disney-Hyperion | January 8, 2013

This book had some seriously surprising moments! I loved that it was mystery and thriller and a little something extra spooky. It was a great read for someone like me who doesn’t really do horror. The suspense was just great and there was more than one moment where I literally shouted out loud! I actually have yet to finish the series!! I read book two but still have to find the time to read the very last one. I really enjoyed SHADOWLANDS quite a bit but the second book wasn’t quite what I was hoping for so I guess my enthusiasm waned a little bit. I think it just wasn’t what I was expecting so the new direction put it on the back burner for a while but I do still want to finish!

Book Title Buzzwords

I love noticing title trends in the YA world (and in adult books too!) and I can also tell that there are certain words I latch onto. Book Title Buzzwords features books that I’ve read (or want to read) that follow some recent trends! 

With Laini Taylor’s latest release STRANGE THE DREAMER coming out in just months (NOTE: I found out this actualyl got pushed back to 2017 after I drafted this post. Wahhh!), I’ve been daydreaming (ha) about so many incredible books that are coming up! The title had me looking back on all of the “dream” books I’ve read and heard of recently and just like that, a new Book Title Buzzwords post was born!

BOOKS TO DREAM ABOUT

The Dream Thieves - Maggie SteifvaterTHE DREAM THIEVES| Book two in The Raven Cycle | Scholastic | September 17, 2013

Naturally, THE DREAM THIEVES is the first up on the list. I still remember standing in line for this at BEA back in 2013 (my first one!) and how special it was to have it be one of my very first BEA ARCs that I ever read. The experience was even more special just because the book was so amazing. It was more than I expected it to be and if you haven’t read this series yet, it’s truly unique and something you need to experience! THE DREAM THIEVES continues the saga of Blue and her Raven Boys and what happens when things start to get a little dreamier, departing a bit more from the normal even more than there was in book one. The gang gets tighter, things get weirder, and pulses sky rocket!

Dreams of Gods and MonstersDREAMS OF GODS AND MONSTERS by Laini Taylor | Book three in the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy | Little, Brown | April 8, 2014

Maybe Laini Taylor just really likes dreams… This is another book with the same buzzword! DREAMS OF GODS AND MONSTERS was the conclusion to the beautifully sweeping Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy. The books are hefty in size but the content is amazing. This was actually my least favorite of the three books, simply because I felt like it spent a little too much time away from the main action, but it still delivered a satisying ending to this tense war and forbidden romance. I just love Laini Taylor’s writing so it was sad to say goodbye to this series but that makes me that much more excited for a new book coming up!

dreamstriderDREAMSTRIDER by Lindsay Smith | Macmillan | October 6, 2015

I’m including DREAMSTRIDER on my list for its originality, even though it wasn’t a favorite read of mine. I immediately picked it up because of the dreaming concept, but in the book I actually found it to be a bit confusing. I’d dub the book “fanta-sci” (fantasy + sci-fi) because of the fantasy world and concept but using dreams (which I consider to be a sci-fi aspect, although that could also fall under the fantasy umbrella too) and the two just didn’t quite mesh the way I had hoped. The book did have so many creative concepts and really interesting facts that kept me reading and looking for more. I really wanted to get lost in this world and understand the whole dreaming aspect, plus there was a curious political conflict going on!

Happy 4th of July!! No matter where you live or what you’re doing, I hope it’s a spectacular day! Today I decided to go holiday-themed and get a Book Title Buzzwords post done with some RED, WHITE, and BLUE keywords! Here are some of my favorites!

RED, WHITE, AND BLUE BOOKS

red seas under red skiesRED SEAS UNDER RED SKIES | Book two in the Gentleman Bastard series | Random House | July 31, 2007

RED SEAS UNDER RED SKIES is the second book in the Gentleman Bastard series by Scott Lynch and I was totally swept away by the first book (and every one after that), THE LIES OF LOCKE LAMORA. It’s an adult fantasy series and it’s absolutely hilarious. The fantasy is more fictional lands than actual magic (though there is some, it’s not the focus) and everything is just so incredibly clever. Witty characters, abundant swearing, bromances, and an amazing crew. I just LOVE this series and I can’t wait for more!

White Cat
WHITE CAT by Holly Black | Book one in the Curse Workers trilogy | Simon & Schuster | May 4, 2010

WHITE CAT is the first book in the Curse Worker series by Holly Black which is an urban fantasy trilogy. Magic is real and certain people and those who have it possess certain abilities. Cassel is from a family of con artist “curse workers” and gets tangled up in the magical crime family business. The first book, BLACK CAT, really hooked me and I ended up reading all three books on audio (Jesse Eisenberg narrates)! The books are realistic and yet fantastic. I love the comic tone, male narration, and the sense of gray area when it comes to morality of how Cassel should and shouldn’t get involved with magic. I just really enjoyed the whole series from start to finish!

Nantucket BlueNANTUCKET BLUE by Leila Howland | Book one in the Nantucket duology | Disney-Hyperion | May 7, 2013

I love NANTUCKET BLUE. It’s one of my favorite contemporary books (and series, with it’s sequel NANTUCKET RED). I just SO identified with Cricket in so many ways and I really thought Leila Howland did an amazing job of creating such realistic characters and situations. I truly loved, loved, loved both of these books and this is one I really recommend to any contemporary fans. Cricket is such an amazing character — she’s real but also has flaws and she goes through so many relatable things. The books really cover so much in the average teenager’s life but even as an adult, I can identify with a lot.

On this edition of Book Title Buzzwords, I’m sharing a recent favorite title that you MUST check out — THE CROWN’S GAME by Evelyn Skye! I finished this book a while ago but can’t get it off my mind. It comes out next week and you absolutely need to read this book! It reminded me how much I love games and competitions in books (even possible deadly ones!) and it inspired a new Book Title Buzzwords post!

GET IN THE GAME


the crown's gameTHE CROWN’S GAME by Evelyn Skye | Book one in The Crown’s Game | HarperCollins | May 17, 2016

I just loved this book. It had a little bit of a NIGHT CIRCUS feel for me with two opposing magicians and the whole story was really just so well done. I loved the opposition and inevitable attraction. The book has some different romance angles but I like how there are more cards on the table and yet it’s not a love triangle. There’s intrigue, magic, passion, and history. It’s inspired by Imperial Russia and yet the story takes its own turns. I’m not a history person so I was afraid that I’d be lost not actually knowing but the plot is easy to follow and just a whole lot of fun all around. No matter what genres you love, THE CROWN’S GAME is one to try this spring/summer!

A Game of ThronesA GAME OF THRONES by George R.R. Martin | Book one in the Song of Ice and Fire series| Random House |August 6th 1996

I’m still not caught up on the TV show (this is what happens when you don’t have the premium channels. No, that’s a lie. This is what happens when you don’t watch TV and you read instead) but I’m still so in love with these books! It was one of my first big fantasy series so I was very hesitant to jump into the series (two years ago already!!) but ended up buddy reading and got so caught up in these books! I know it seems like a huge undertaking but if you really do want to read the series, I totally recommend it! I started the books and read one book every two months, spread out amongst my other reads, and it was totally manageable! Plus that really let everything sink in as I was reading.

Gameboard of the GodsGAMEBOARD OF THE GODS by Richelle Mead | Book one in the Age of X series | Penguin | June 4, 2013

I loved Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy series and was anxious to jump on GAMEBOARD OF THE GODS when I had first heard about it back in 2013. It sounded a little dystopian but actually turned out to be futuristic sci-fi with a mythological twist on the plot. Gods are actually involved here and things get rather interesting when they come into play! It was also a foray back into adult (versus YA) and it was an enjoyable change of pace! The romance was fun and sexy and I really loved the dynamic of all of the characters. This book was a little hard to get into at first simply because I had interpreted its genre wrong (I didn’t realize the mythology was such a large part) but once I got a grip on what the book really was, it was a breeze to read and a lot of fun! I really enjoyed the second book and I’m still anticipating the third.

THE HUNGER GAMES by Suzanne Collins | Book one in The Hunger Games trilogy | Scholastic | September 14, 2008

Last but definitely not least… THE HUNGER GAMES! Obviously we all know this book and I’m sure most people have read it and/or seen the movies but it will always hold a special place in my heart. I borrowed THE HUNGER GAMES from a friend back in 2011 and I DEVOURED the series. This was the first I really new of Young Adult and I wanted more, more, more. I actually wanted more dystopian but I could only find it in Young Adult and… voila. I became a YA addict! I owe this series so much and probably wouldn’t be blogging or maybe even reading like I am now without it.

The Lies of Locke Lamora (Gentleman Bastard, #1)THE LIES OF LOCKE LAMORA by Scott Lynch | Book one in the Gentleman Bastard series | Random House | June 27, 2006

This quickly became one of my all-time favorite series… even when I had only read the first book (I’m now caught up on all three that are currently out). It’s non-stop fun with heists, cons, swearing, and friendship. The characters are just excellent and leap off the page. The setting is vivid and the series is a delightful fantasy that contains a little bit of magic that remains subtle and also still really drives the plot. I LOVE the bromances in these books and the main characters (as well as every other character) are just phenomenal. If you like adult fantasy, this is a MUST read. The books are just tons of fun and I recommend them to any fantasy readers, especially those who love heists!

The Lies About TruthTHE LIES ABOUT TRUTH by Courtney C. Stevens | Harper Collins | November 3, 2015

I’ve been really shying away from some more “serious” contemporary reads (death, grieving, disease, etc) lately simply because I’m seeking escape in books at the moment but when I heard all of the great reviews for THE LIES ABOUT TRUTH, I knew I had to read it. I was wholly absorbed by this book and the characters were truly amazing. This book felt so realistic and the characters and reactions just really felt so genuine. The book was bittersweet but left me with so many positive feelings and this is one I definitely recommend if you’re in the mood for a good, solid contemporary read!

Lies Beneath (Lies Beneath, #1)LIES BENEATH by Anne Greenwood Brown | Book one in the Lies Beneath trilogy | Random House | June 12, 2012

I was so pleasantly surprised with LIES BENEATH when I first read it! I don’t really do mermaid stories but this was so well-done and I loved that it was a little bit darker to bring a more haunting side to this tale. (No pun intended.) I love a good male POV in a market where I feel like I read a lot of female POVs and the audiobook for this book was great as well — it’s where I first fell in love with one of my favorite audio narrators, MacLeod Andrews. I thought the story was just really great and I couldn’t believe I ended up enjoying this mermaid book so much! I still need to finish the series and will have to do so soon! (I now know that the rest of the series didn’t get audiobooks — boooo — so I need to get my print copies.)
