Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Book Titles That Are Questions. This is a fun one! Here are ten books that fit the theme, either from my shelves or my TBR list:
Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. by Judy Blume
This children’s classic was HUGE while I was growing up (which gives you some idea of how long ago that was…)
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick
I read this ages ago while going through a Blade Runner obsession phase (probably due to a friend who insisted that Blade Runner was the most profound movie ever). The book definitely explains a lot more than the movie — but I should probably watch the director’s cut again at some point and see if my reaction has changed at all.
Do You Dream of Terra-Two? by Temi Oh
This is a more recent book — published in 2019, it’s a story of a decades-long space voyage to a new planet. I loved it!
Have You Eaten Grandma? by Gyles Brandreth
Who doesn’t love a great grammar book? I sure do! I love smart, funny books that explain grammar — with a sense of humor.
Where Are the Children? by Mary Higgins Clark
This book scared the heck out of me when I first read it. Maybe it would seem tame compared to thrillers today, but I absolutely lost sleep thanks to this book way back when.
Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been? by Joyce Carol Oates
I’ve only read the title story… but it’s stayed with me ever since. This story was the basis for the 1985 Laura Dern/Treat Williams movie Smooth Talk, which is understated and disturbing and really memorable.
Siri, Who Am I? by Sam Tschida
I’m including this book on my list this week because I love the title, even though I ended up DNFing the book. I thought the idea of someone with amnesia using Siri and social media to figure out her identity and her life was really clever, but I ended up annoyed by the plot and couldn’t bring myself to finish.
If I Love You, Am I Trapped Forever? by M. E. Kerr
I remember basically nothing about the plot of this book, but M. E. Kerr was super popular for a time in the pre-YA young adult market. (Hmm — I see a trend in this week’s list: Books From My Younger Days. Sigh.)
Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? by Dr. Seuss
My family is full of Seuss fans, and this happens to be a really fun one to read aloud. It includes such magical passages as:
And now all the Hawtchers who live in Hawtch-Hawtch are watching on watch watcher watchering watch, watch watching the watcher who’s watching that bee. You’re not a Hawtch-Watcher — you’re lucky you see!
May I Bring A Friend? by Beatrice Schenk de Regniers
Another awesome children’s book to read aloud! I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I read this one to my son… but it was a daily favorite for weeks at a time. So charming!
