Some books' titles are just...bleh. They're too derivative, or they don't express the content of the book well enough. And I get how hard choosing a book title is, but I also know that it's often an editorial or publisher choice so...some titles should be better. For this post, I don't necessarily have a better title in mind. I just know that the book needs one. And also please know that I did enjoy the vast majority of these books despite their need for better titles. ;)
We're all very over the "of __ and ____" trend.
I just...it doesn't quite express the book's contents well enough, though it gets points for a lovely cover.
Sarah Dessen's titles are all fairly generic, but this one takes the cream of the crop. Saint Anything is probably her best title.
I know this one isn't even out yet, but the fact that it's SO similar to the title of the first book in the companion duology...it's just kinda uncreative.
Once again, a bit generic.
I loved the idea of The Winner's Curse and The Winner's Crime, but this one only fits because of the hard c sound. It makes this final book in the trilogy sound like more of a romance than a fantasy novel with a literal war.
I adore Kasie's books, but this one (and its companion sequel in number eight) needs a better title. The list part of the title is very important, but the rest only fit because of the alliteration.
Same as number seven.
I haven't read this one (yet), but the title reveals absolutely nothing about the contents except maybe that it's gonna be a super literary book. We'll see. (If my library would ever get a copy!) Update: I finally got to read this book, but yeah, the title still doesn't work.
10. Serpent & Dove
We are also very over the __ & ___ trend. (She says even though that's the title of one of her novels.)
So what book titles would you change?
