Top Ten Tuesday: Books with Sea in the Title

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt is Books with Geographical Terms in the Title. This prompt stumped me for a bit. I’m usually bad when it comes to such open prompts. When there are too many possibilities, I don’t always know what to focus on. My original idea was to choose books with cardinal directions in the title, but after looking through my Goodreads shelves, I only found 5 titles and that was stretching it with books I have little memory of or haven’t read yet. Then I decided to just list books with geographical terms to see what I could come up with. Eventually, I realized I had read a ton of books with “sea” in the title, so I decided to go with that as my focused theme for this week’s prompt.

Skin of the Sea by Natasha Bowen: I love this take on mermaids. It was so empowering and enchanting.

Race to the Bottom of the Sea by Lindsay Eagar: One of my favorite middle grade books, especially because it’s about pirates!

Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. LeGuin: It’s been ages since I read this for school. I’m definitely due for a reread for this book and I should probably read the rest of the series while I’m at it.

The Starless Sea by Erin Morgensten: I have some issues with this book, but I love the title.

The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea by Axie Oh: This book was so fun and magical. I need more like it.

To Sleep in a Sea of Stars by Christopher Paolini: Not your typical take on “sea,” but the title and cover are amazing.

The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan: I love that this book mimics The Odyssey adventure!

Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys: Everything by Ruta is fantastic, but this one will probably always be my favorite.

Beyond the Bright Sea by Lauren Wolk: Such a fantastic middle grade book. I love all the details.

The Girl the Sea Gave Back by Adrienne Young: While Fable made me fall in love with Adrienne Young’s books, this one is the one that convinced me to give her a second chance.

    • Now that I’ve read other people’s posts, I can see how ‘city’ would be a popular one too. And I completely understand wanting to find a variation in terms! ๐Ÿ™‚
