I was a little surprised to see this weeks topic, because it made me realize how rarely this seems to happen! I decided to take the easy way out this time, and search for books on my TBR that have a question mark in the title, although I’m sure there are other books that might fit. I could have sworn there were more books with questions for titles, but on my TBR of over 4000 books, there were only 20! I’m curious if there’s a reason why this is not a convention that is used more commonly, especially among mysteries or thrillers where the entire book is usually premised on some kind of question, such as where someone is or what happened to them. Upon looking for options that weren’t necessarily on my TBR, I came across a Goodreads list that had more than 1000 titles, many of which seem to be children’s books or non-fiction. Strangely enough, some of those are books that are also on my TBR that didn’t come up in my original search, so I’m not sure what happened there.
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Here are ten of the books still on my TBR that have titles that are questions:
1) Who Could That Be at This Hour? by Lemony Snicket
2) Isn’t It Bromantic? by Lyssa Kay Adams
3) Who Put This Song On? by Morgan Parker
4) Are We All Lemmings and Snowflakes? by Holly Bourne
5) Who Killed Ruby? by Camilla Way
6) Mother, Can You Not? by Kate Friedman-Siegel
7) Hello? by Liza M. Wiemer
8) What Happened to Cass McBride? by Gail Giles
9) How Will I Know You? by Jessica Treadway
10) Are We There Yet? by Kathleen West
Nice list! We both have Isn’t It Bromantic? by Lyssa Kay Adams on our lists!
Great collection of titles!

I like titles like #5 because I always want to know whodunit and, even more intriguing, WHY??
To be honest, I’m not such a fan of that title. It felt a bit generic to me for a thriller, which is weird since it’s so rare for them to be titled that way!
What a fun list!
