Happiest of Tuesdays, book friends! After sleeping poorly the night before, I feel especially well rested due to some solid sleep last night. I’ve been pretty low energy the last week or so thanks to a pain flare, but I usually feel pretty good in the mornings, so I try to savor this time.
And what better way to enjoy the morning than with another Top 5 Tuesday? 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 picking out books with the 5 Ws in the title (that’s who, what, when, where, why). This is an interesting one, and I initially read it as having the letter W in the title. Guess I’m maybe not as awake as I thought.
Anyway, let’s see how we do!
Iona Iverson’s Rules for Commuting by Clare Pooley (Who and What)
Longbourn by Jo Baker (Where)
Lucy on the Wild Side by Kerry Rea (Who and sort of Where?)
To Get to the Other Side by Kelly Ohlert (Why)
One Night on the Island by Josie Silver (When)
Whew, that was a tough one! I really wanted to try and get at least one for each W, and I think I managed it. Who would’ve guessed I’d struggle more with this one than with last week’s spine poetry!

This is a tough one. I thought we had to find titles with the actual words, “who, what, when, where and why” in the title. Hmmm, this will be harder than I thought.
I’ve seen other people do it that way! That didn’t even occur to me until after I wrote my post 😂
I usually think of the simplist thing first, but I love your interpretation as well.
This was such a fun way to interpret this prompt. I took it a bit more literally and found titles with the actual W words in them. I’m not sure which option would be more difficult. They both seem super hard. lol.
That seems to be what most people have done, at least that I’ve seen so far. Sometimes my brain works in mysterious ways lol. But yes, both seem challenging in their own way!
When I first read your title I assumed that you were looking titles with 5 W’s in them. LOL! This was a fun challenge!
That would be very tricky indeed! Haha.
This looks like it was a tricky one! I’ve seen several variations and they are all great. I totally thought it was 5 W’s in the title the first time I saw this! haha
The Why is fantastic! I love that! I am also delighted that I read 4/5 of these books. Some faves too. Fun list!
You did this the hard way! I just used the words and found books with those words in the title!
I realized that after I started seeing everyone else’s posts! Somehow my brain just did not interpret it that way, lol.
Hey, you do YOU! I loved it!
I loved this post. It’s a hard topic
