Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury
This title perfectly captures the feeling of this book—warm, sweet, and a bit magical.
How to be both by Ali Smith
I was drawn in by the weird cover, weird title, and the fact that there are two editions of this book (and you never know which you will get). This was my introduction to Ali Smith, and I don’t think I could have picked a better starting point.
Senlin Ascends by Josiah Bancroft
In a way, I think this book has a better title than the whole series (The Books of Babel)—and it sums up the plot of the first (and second and third) book well.
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
Only Neil Gaiman can have a title this epic and completely match your expectations. This is a huge, ambitious book that manages to create a modern day mythological epic.
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
Everything about this book is done well, from its plot to its writing to its cover to its title. And it’s always refreshing to see a sci-fi book with an outside-the-box title.
The Labyrinth of the Spirits by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
A mysterious title that echoes the atmosphere of the story itself and the intricate cover design.
Artful by Ali Smith
Simple and to the point.
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
It’s the perfect title for such a darkly magical book.
Lit by Mary Karr
The title perfectly matches the story.
The Tale of Despereaux being the story of a mouse, a princess, some soup, and a spool of thread by Kate DiCamillo
This whimsical title is as enchanting today as it was when I was a child.
