Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This week’s topic is:

oh i LOVED hotel on the corner of bitter & sweet !! i’ve been meaning to read guernsey forever — thank you for the reminder!
It’s so good!!
Wow! Guernesy Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society sure is a mouth full!! Probably one of the longest titles to a book I’ve read is Passions: Love Poems and Other Writings by Gabriel Milton. I reviewed it for Online Book Club and having to write that title time and time again for the reviewing process was tiring!!
Thanks! I never really pay attention to title length, but there are a bunch out there with pretty long titles! 🙂
Great list! I’ve heard so many good things about Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistlestop Cafe.
I read it years ago and loved it!
I always think of the Guernsey Potato book when I think of long titles! I can never remember it fully! 🤣
Hahaha – That’s fabulous!
Obviously the Harry Potter books- all of them have long titles. Had read Narnia books as well- some of those books have long titles.
Murder on the Orient Express, And Then There was None
Ooooh – good ones!! 🙂
I have been meaning to watch The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society…. I really should
It’s good! Definitely worth a watch!
Great list! I’ve been meaning to read Artistotle and Dante and Guernsey literary and potato peel society
They’re so good!! I hope you enjoy them if you get a chance to read them!
I havent read any of these! But Aristotle and Dante is on my tbr!
The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society definitely comes to mind for this one! Great picks!
Oh boy. That last one is SO LONG. I hated typing it or saying it when I was reading it. Nice list.
Thanks! That is a long one!
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society will always first come to mind! Add to that:
Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World (Murakami)
Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage (Murakami)
And Every Morning The Way Home Gets Longer and Longer (Backman)
Yes, those are fantastic (and long!) 🙂
It’s crazy how long some titles can be! Great list.
Great choices!! I had Guernsey and Aristotle on my list, as well. ❤️
Nice! They’re both great!
