Ten Books With Numbers in the Title

Hello everybody! How is October please?! Today, I’m once again taking part in Top Ten Tuesday and the theme today is books with numbers in the title- some of which I’ve read and some which I have not yet. Onto the post!


Fire Colour One– I have read several Jenny Valentine books and I loved them all. I really should read some more! I don’t remember a huge deal of this now to be honest, because I read it very soon after it came out (in 2015, I believe) but I remember it being addictive and brilliantly written.

Two Can Keep a Secret– if you have read some of my posts before, you’ll probably know I’m not a fan of this book at ALL, especially if you read the one where I called it a metaphorical snoozefest. I liked Ezra and I think it would have been less annoying if it were from his POV, but otherwise I didn’t like anything really and it was so disappointing after her BRILLIANT debut.

The Crooked Sixpence– this is the first of the Uncommoners trilogy, and it introduces the world of Lundinor and Ivy and Seb Sparrow as characters so well, has a great self contained plot and sets up the series arc fantastcially. Also, Scratch is such a great sidekick and I love him. I seriously need to finish these books by reading the Frozen Telescope- I might try and do so in November when I’m pretty sure this is set.

Seven Days of You– this is a romance set in Japan over 7 days. I didn’t like the ending much, but I did very much like the writing style and Tokyo setting.

The Company of Eight- I feel like this book deserves so much more love, it’s SO fun. It’s a feminist fantasy adventure set in a world with so much going on that it’s really hard to describe but it’s so interesting and clever. I’m currently reading the sequel and so far it’s just as good, if not better!

Girl 38– this is another really underrated one. I’ve barely seen anyone else reading it but I know SO many who’d love it; I highly recommend it. The past and present narratives link in such an interesting way and the depiction of bullying was heartbreaking. I love Julian (and Kat) so much.

Podkin One Ear– I have promised Rachael I will read this so many times and I am yet to pick it up. It really does need to happen soon. I know so little about it- it’s a fantasy with rabbits is about as much as I can tell you really.

The One Hundred and One Dalmatians– this is one of my absolute favourite classics. It’s so charming and lovely and comforting, and I am well overdue a reread so I’ll need to get on that! Preferably with that stunning new Alex T Smith edition I keep meaning to pick up…

One of Us is Lying– this was Karen M McManus’s first book, which I really did like. It’s a Breakfast Club inspired murder mystery, which kind of tells you everything you need to know in terms of why I love it (if you don’t know me, it’s one of my fave films!). The Athlete is my fave character in both, if you’re wondering.

100 Proposals– I recently bought a different Holly Martin book because I think her stuff looks very much up my alley, and I definitely hope to read them all if I like it. This is one of them- it focuses on a woman who is secretly in love with her oblivious best friend/business partner as he pretends to propose to her once every day for a work project.

The 13 trilogy– Michelle Harrison is brilliant, and I love this trilogy about faeries and changelings and historical mysteries a hell of a lot. The prequel One Wish is great too!


Which books with numbers in the title have you read or do you have on your TBR? Are you planning to try any of mine, if you’ve not read them? I’d love to hear in the comments!

  1. I’ve been seeing “two can keep a secret” in everyone’s list. It’s in my list too though I haven’t posted mine. It’s scheduled to be live later today. But OMG, I need to have 100 Proposals. I’m planning to read a lot of Contemporary this month and it would be perfect and the concept is my favorite. Thanks for sharing it πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  2. I still haven’t read any of the 13 series, I need to! I got the Alex T Smith illustrated 101 dalmatians last year but still haven’t re read it, maybe this year! Girl 38 has been on my list too.
    I know you’ll get to Podkin one day, although it’s funny because it’s been so long since I recommended it and I know you and your tastes better now I’m no longer sure you’ll like it, I think so and of course I hope so, but I’m not so sure as I was!
