Top Ten Tuesday: Book Title Sentences

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Book Titles That Are Complete Sentences. Okay, first off, this prompt annoys me because while I understand it, I also know that a sentence needs a subject and a verb. And while I was looking for titles that fit, I realized there are so many book titles that seem like sentences but aren’t, they’re fragments, so this made my grammar oriented brain go a little crazy. But I managed to find several that work with a subject and verb, so I’m definitely happy.

Ally Carter books: So many of Ally Carter’s books are sentences! It’s so strange, but I also love it. Here are the ones I’ve read: Dear Ally, How Do You Write a Book, I’d Tell You I Love You But Then I’d Have to Kill You, Only the Good Spy Young, Take the Key and Lock Her Up, See How They Run, Don’t Judge a Girl by Her Cover, United We Spy.

Karen M. McManus books: All but one of McManus’s books, so far, are sentences, even her 2021 release. The exception is The Cousins.

Guys Are Waffles, Girls Are Spaghetti by Chad Eastham: I read this book in high school when it was the Christian Dating Book to Read. But hey, it works for this prompt.

Speak Easy, Speak Love by McKelle George: This is a retelling of Much Ado About Nothing set during Prohibition. Basically, it’s great.

P.S. I Like You by Kasie West: This one is super cute and fluffy. I suppose then that Jenny Han’s book that is very similar, P.S. I Still Love You, would also count, but I like Kasie West’s book better.

Darius the Great Is Not Okay by Adib Khorram: Actually, this book and its sequel both have sentences for the titles.

I Love You So Mochi by Sarah Kuhn: Another cute and fluffy read! And that title is perfect!

I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson: That cover, though.

This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills: This might be the craziest Emma Mills book, but I love it. And the cover. And the title.

Wayside School Is Falling Down by Louis Sachar: So other than book one, the Wayside School series all have titles that include sentences.

What books did you find have official (subject + verb) sentences in their titles? Don’t forget to join the link up!

    • It IS hard to tell the difference. I’m such a sentence/word nerd that while I was looking for titles, I broke them down into those sentence tree things that I learned in English class to figure out whether they truly were sentences or not. XD
