Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that currently resides at The Artsy Reader Girl and features bloggers sharing lists on various book topics. For this latest Top Ten Tuesday participants are tasked with listing their top books that have geographical terms in the title. Geographical terms in this case include terms such as mountains, islands, lands, deserts, oceans, valleys and much, much more. Participants were actually provided a link of hundreds of potential geographical terms on Wikipedia to use as examples to help with the task here, and while I didn’t get some of the more exotic terms, it did help me select a couple of fun books to include. I did have a bit of a struggle coming up with a full list here, as it turns out a lot of the books I have read didn’t feature geographical terms, but I was eventually able to pull together a descent list in the end. All the books below are excellent reads and I liked how the authors used these terms in the titles.
To Sleep in a Sea of Stars by Christopher Paolini
Top Ten Tuesday:
Usagi Yojimbo: Volume 21: The Mother of Mountains by Stan Sakai
Streams of Silver by R. A. Salvatore
Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch
Well, that’s the end of this list. As you can see there is some fantastic novels out there that use geographical terms in their titles, and there are some interesting usages throughout fiction. All the above novels are wonderful and highly recommended reads, and I had an incredible time reading them. I look forward to potentially revisiting this list in the future and it will be interesting to see what new books will feature these sorts of terms in their titles. Let me know which books with geographical phrases in the titles you enjoyed the most in the comments below.
