    1. I’m back now! I was sneaky and scheduled my posts in advance!

  2. Haha wow, that last one is quite a mouthful. Great list!

  3. Whoa! You found some really long (and really funny!) titles!

  4. These are all wonderful. I feel like the folks who wrote these titles were stringing together a whole slew of random thoughts.

  5. World War Z was such a good story, too.

    My post.

  6. You found some good titles! I'm loving #5😁

  10. Ok I'm really curious about 5 Good Reasons!!!

  11. I also have number 2 on my TTT and I've seen it on quite a few other lists, seems like that could be the winner.

  12. The "Don't Tell Mum..." title is so funny! Love that one.

  13. Ah Allie's books! I loved the first one and hope to read the second one soon. I'm too lazy to put a list of these together so I went rogue again!

  14. Love your choices! World War Z is one of my favorite books. :)

  15. I didn't even think about counting characters! For my list, I looked at the lengths of the titles of the books I've read so far this year and the longest one was only 8 words. I guess I like shorter titles :)

    Happy TTT!

  16. Great list! I also have the Hyperbole book on my list!

    Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday!
