Top Ten Tuesday #34

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 Geographical Terms in the Title

This week’s prompt is “Books with Geographical Terms in the Title.” My first thought when I saw the prompt was, I’m not sure how many books I’ve read qualify. I used Jana’s link to geographical terms, cross-checked it with every book I’ve marked as Read on Goodreads, and I found ten books. I haven’t read some of these books since 2007 or earlier! Anyway, here’s what I found:

What about you? Which books did you find with geographical terms in the title? Do we have any in common?

      I don’t see it on lists very often either. I almost missed it for this week too, but then realized “town” would work. I really enjoyed this book too. I wish it was a series. 😀

      I’ve only read the first two books in the Artemis Fowl series. I’d like to read the whole series. I just need to take the time. 😀 It’s been so long since I’ve read the first two books, though. I read them back in 2007.

      Mansfield Park is the first Jane Austen book I ever read. I really enjoyed it. I liked it much better than Persuasion. To each their own, right? 😀 My favorite Austen novel is Northanger Abbey, though. I still haven’t read Emma or Sense and Sensibility yet so we’ll see if that holds.

    I never would have thought of Mansfield Park. I tried to stay relatively current and used the linked Wikipedia list for words so I really struggled to fill in this list. Sigh. I should have taken a more relaxed approach. I had a very difficult time with this task this week. Apparently I don’t read many books with geographical terms. My list this week

      I tried to stay current too, but I had a very hard time even finding books that qualified. I also used Jana’s link and cross-checked it with every single book marked as Read on Goodreads. It took almost an hour. LOL. 😀

      Lol. I understand. It took me an hour to come up with my list. I cross-checked every book I marked as Read on Goodreads with Jana’s link. I’m very happy I found ten books. 😀

      Thanks, Lark! 😀 I really tried to find books that used different terms, but I had a hard time so I have “city” and “park” twice. Mansfield Park and Jurassic Park do make an interesting juxtaposition, don’t they?

    OOoh nice picks! I’m seeing some with terms and of course now I’m thinking, I HAD A TITLE WITH THAT! Lol! It was so hard to think of things I mostly searched for Jana’s examples as well!

    Thanks for visiting my TTT!

    This week’s theme was such a struggle, and now I instantly regret not just throwing caution to the wind and whacking Coldtown on my list, too! I love that book so much. Great list!

      Lol. I love the cover art for Dune too. There are so many covers available and I really love what some designers choose to highlight on each. I even like the cover to the B&N leather bound edition, which is the copy I own, but I think the one I have been showing on my blog is my favorite! 😀 The only thing that would make it better is if a sandworm were on it.

      I also love the covers for Jurassic Park and The Lost World, non-movie editions. They’re so iconic!

    I was surprised how many titles I found with geographical terms in them. It’s something I’ve never really paid attention to before, but apparently I’m very drawn to these kinds of titles. Who knew? From your list, I’ve read THE HOLLOW CITY, JURASSIC PARK, and DREAD NATION. I *think* I’ve read THE COLDEST GIRL IN COLDTOWN, but I’m not totally sure…curse my aging memory!

    Happy TTT!

    This is a very “famililar” list for me. I have read “Mansfield Park” (as well as all other Jane Austen books, of course), my eldest son read “The Golden Compass” when he was little, they both read “Artemis Fowl”, and my youngest wanted “Dune” for Christmas last year.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT this week.

    I worried I wouldn’t have enough titles for this prompt either, but I figured it out. I’m glad you did too.

    You’ve got a lot of titles with such interesting terms that I didn’t even think of, like Dread Nation and Jurassic Park/Jurassic World. Awesome!

      I also love the cover for A River Enchanted. The cover for its sequel is just as gorgeous. 😀 Arctic wouldn’t have occurred to me either if I hadn’t used Jana’s link, lol.
