Top 5 Tuesday: Books with Numbers in the Title

Happy Tuesday, book friends! It snowed last night, so I’m sitting in a very lightly dusted winter wonderland that feels a bit odd for March. Winter weather or not, it’s time for another Top 5 Tuesday post!

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by Bionic Bookworm, now hosted by Meeghan Reads. If you’re interested in participating, check out their blog to get the details and the prompts for each week. This week, we’re looking at books with numbers in the title! This one might be tricky for me, since I can think of exactly zero off the top of my head. Let’s see how we do!

Ninth Key by Meg Cabot

A quick glance at my bookshelves reminded me of this book from the Mediator series. Honestly, I can’t remember the significance of the title at all, and I just did an audio reread of these books not long ago. Side note–Bookshop categorizes this series with “horror” as the primary genre and maybe I’m missing something but, like… no?

13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl by Mona Awad

It’s been a bit since I read this book, but I recall really loving it. It’s told in a series of different vignettes around one woman’s life and how she and the people around her view her body.

Below Zero by Ali Hazelwood

This is one of the novellas in the Loathe to Love You series, which were released earlier as Audible exclusives. I read it back in those days as a standalone title, so it definitely 100% counts for this list.

One Night on the Island by Josie Silver

I adored this book, a story about two people who go to a remote island to get away, only to discover the cabin they’re staying in has been double booked. They’re stuck there together and hello forced proximity romance.

The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Josie Silver

Yes, Josie Silver claims two spots on this list. Yes, it’s a little bit because she apparently has a lot of numbers in her titles, but it’s also because I adore her books. This one broke me apart in all the best ways, and I feel like I don’t see it talked about enough. So, here I am talking about it.

Look at that, I did it! I even passed over a few books I’ve read with numbers in the title that just aren’t favorites enough to make a Top 5 sort of list. So in all, I’ve read more books with numbers in the title than I realized, even if very few of them are sitting on the shelf I’m squinting at right now.
