Top Ten Tuesday #21

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Books with a Unit of Time in the Title

I’m not going to lie. This prompt stumped me a little bit. No books came immediately to my mind. I had to use my Excel spreadsheet with my 1200+ TBR for help.  Here are my top ten eight books with a unit of time in the title:

Books I’ve Read

Books on My TBR

What about you? Which books made your list this week? Do we have any in common?

      Today’s list is definitely showing me all the books with time that I either didn’t think of or I haven’t heard of. 😀 I do like time travel and dual timelines. Most of those don’t have unit of time words in the title, though.

    I guess I don’t read many books with units of time in the title. In fact, I can only think of “19 Minutes” which I hated and am trying to forget.

      Lol. I don’t really either. I looked through every book I’ve read and only found the four. And, then I looked through my TBR and found the other four. There are probably more, but these are the only ones my search produced.

    This prompt was a bit hard. I love that you found so many books with forever and eternity in the title. I never would have thought of using those. Thanks for commenting on my blog earlier. 🙂

      It seems like forever and eternity are the only unit of time words I read, lol. I guess I do have a couple of others, but maybe it’s because forever and eternity signal an HEA and I love HEAs.

    Split second I remember from when I first started blogging. Never did read it. Forever is a great choice too. Remember when those books were EVERYWHERE? I mean, they’re still popular, but I remember when they ruled the YA book blog world lol.

      Yes, Split Second and Shiver and its sequels dominated (especially Shiver) the book blogging world for a really long time. Man, that brings back memories. Those were the glory days of blogging. Although, I really like the book blogging community the way it is now. Everyone is so reciprocal. Back then, the bigger blogs never commented on other blogs and that always bugged me.

      Thanks! I thought the same thing about a few words that others used when I went blog hopping too, mostly the names of days of the week and months. I didn’t even think of those, lol.

      Thanks, Leslie! 😀 I understand. I had to divide mine up because I didn’t have enough books I’ve read so it worked out to have books on my TBR.

    Well done! I think this challenge is easier for some Genre’s. I had a bit of a tough time with it too. Science fiction would have a lot of time titles I would think.

      I was kind of thinking the same thing. I think sci-fi, thrillers, and maybe erotica. I saw a lot of lists with thrillers and erotica today where the blogger didn’t seem to have any trouble with today’s prompt.

    Same! I was really struggling to come up with any titles until it dawned on me that I could just search my TBR lists on Goodreads. Easy peasy.

    SPLIT SECOND is the only book I’ve read from your list. Kasie West’s books are so fun, but man, it’s hard to keep up with authors who publish as much as she does. Not that I’m complaining! I wish all my favorite authors published that often.

    Happy TTT!

      Lol. That makes me laugh that after you started searching Goodreads it became easy peasy. It still wasn’t easy peasy for me. I must not read or want to read a lot of books with units of time in the title. Ha!

      And, yes, Kasie West, Kiersten White, Sarah J. Maas, and Cassandra Clare all publish books so fast that I can’t keep up with them. It’s a good problem to have, though. I’d rather have too many books to read than not enough.

      That’s cool that you have an excel spreadsheet for your various reading tracking needs. I love mine. I use it in conjunction with Goodreads because GR doesn’t keep track of everything I want it to. Plus, I can sort things the way I want to with Excel. I can go all nerdy, which I’m sure you understand. 😀

    Wasn’t that a fun topic this week? I’m always amazed how many different books there are. I didn’t know any of yours. No, that’s wrong, my son has read “Artemis Fowl” and I’ve heard of Neil Gaiman but never read any of his books.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT this week.

      Yes, it always amazes me how many books there are and how many of them I don’t know about. 😀 (Sorry it took me so long to respond. I came down with COVID. 🤒🤧😷)
