Ciao! I hope everyone is doing good. I had a different post planned altogether as I’m behind schedule with new material, but I couldn’t resist doing this fun post after seeing areadingwritr do it this week. It’s not going to be an every Tuesday thing, but I’ll love to do a few more at some point.
The Artsy Reader’s Top Ten Tuesday ‘s theme for the week is all about Super Long Book Titles. Over the years, I’ve had my fair share of loooonngggg book titles, but most of them are probably forgotten by now. I’m going to share 10 long titles that are on my TBR (most of them are Paris-based).
1. Love and Louis XIV: The Women in the Life of the Sun King by Antonia Fraser
Every year, I keep saying that I’ll get to this book, but I’m yet to pick it up… sadly.
2. The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson
Another book that’s been collecting dust on the TBR.
3. We’ll Always Have Paris: Trying and Failing to Be French by Emma Beddington
I’m actually close to reading this memoir!
4. Eiffel’s Tower and the World’s Fair: Where Buffalo Bill Beguiled Paris, the Artists Quarreled, and Thomas Edison Became a Count by Jill Jonnes
This is probably the longest title I own!
5. The Only Street in Paris: Life on the Rue des Martyrs by Elaine Sciolino
Can’t wait to read about this iconic street!
6. The Lost King of France: How DNA Solved the Mystery of the Murdered Son of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette by Deborah Cadbury
I was going to add this book to the wishlist when I realized that I already have it in my TBR!
7. Bright Lights Paris: Shop, Dine & Live…Parisian Style by Angie Niles
Ah, Paris, the capital of everything! I look forward to probably breezing through this book soon.
8. The knowledge of the holy: The attributes of God, their meaning in the Christian life by A.W. Tozer
I can’t wait to read this book, but I have to be in a good headspace to start.
9. Letters to a Law Student: A Guide to Studying Law at University by Nicholas J. McBride
I got this book during my law phase and although it’s cooled now, I still look forward to reading this book.
10. Learn Japanese: Discover the right approach to Japanese, forget phrases learn how to form your own sentences by Languages World
This book – and several other language books – is for special hoarding purposes.
Well, that was fun! How about you? Do you have a book with a super long title to share? Let me know in the comments.
