I haven’t done a Top 5 Tuesday post in quite a while, but when I went looking for inspiration for today’s post (not into this week’s Top 10 Tuesday), I realized that there are some awesome new topics available for T5T! This weekly meme is hosted by Meeghan Reads — check out upcoming topics here.
This week’s topic is Top 5 books with one word titles. I’ve done a similar post in the past, but it was over a year ago… so this time around, I’m only including books I’ve read in the past 12 months.
My top 5 books with one word titles:
- Spare by Prince Harry
- Lute by Jennifer Thorne
- Upgrade by Blake Crouch
- Honor by Thrity Umrigar
- Persuasion by Jane Austen
What books made your list this week?
As always, if you have a TTT or T5T post this week, please share your link!

Great picks! I really enjoyed this week’s topic. Definitely thought about Austen for one word titles but could only think of Emma, my least favorite of her books.
Emma is actually one of my favorites! I love the humor in it. Persuasion is wonderful as well.
I love Emma for all the eccentrics in it!
Emma’s still a great and wonderfully funny book. Austen’s an amazing writer. I just never quite managed to get over disliking Emma as a character, even though she does grow quite a bit by the end!
I haven’t read any of these (and can’t imagine ever reading Spare….honestly I’ve heard far too much about them!!!!) 🤣
I thought that at first… but I have to admit that the book was surprisingly moving, and I”m so glad I read it.
I love Persuasion and have heard a lot of good things about Upgrade!
Persuasion is wonderful. I just read it (again!) this past year for a book group discussion.
I love this topic. There are actually a lot of one word titles out there!
For sure! I did a topic like this a couple of years ago, but only using titles that were names of people/characters. More than enough to choose from!
I could only think of fantasy novels for my top 5. I had completely forgotten about Jane Austen which as I only read Persuasion three weeks ago says a lot about my memory. Great choices.
Ha, I’d have a hard time telling you what I read a month ago without checking Goodreads first. 🙂
