#TopTenTuesday: Books with Geographical Terms in the Title

So, we’re back with another Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is about Books with Geographical Terms in the Title (ex. mountain, island, latitude/longitude, ash, bay, beach, border, canyon, cape, city, cliff, coast, country, desert, epicentre, hamlet, highway, jungle, ocean, park, sea, shore, tide, valley, etc. For a great list, click here!)

This was a fun and refreshingly new topic that I don’t recall doing or seeing before but it definitely would’ve been a bigger struggle to come up with a list had Goodreads not existed! There were a few words and books that came to mind immediately but I wanted to see how many other geographical terms I could find without repetition. I wasn’t sure I’d find ten but I did although I do notice that certain terms, such as sea and city, dominate many titles!

Stillhouse Lake by Rachel Caine
The Mountains Sing by Nguyen Phan Que Mai
The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea by Axie Oh
Field Notes on Love by Jennifer E. Smith
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green

The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty
Big Girl Small Town by Michelle Gallen
Dyer Street Punk Witches by Phil Williams
A Little Bit Country by Brian D. Kennedy
The Drowned Woods by Emily Lloyd-Jones

Do you have a lot of books with geographical terms in the title? Do you notice that some terms are a lot more popular than others?

    • Haha, yep, I definitely wouldn’t be able to do 90% of these TTT posts without Goodreads! πŸ˜‚ I would be hitting struggle town real hard! I was also surprised by how many geographical terms are in the titles I readβ€”I think I might start paying more attention to it now!


  1. Ooooh, The Fault in Our Stars is a good one! I did the same thing. I wanted to steer away from specific names and places and just find terms. It was more challenging than I thought it would be, but I also enjoyed that it was something we haven’t done before! Great job!
