Great titles are largely subjective. One person's great title is another person's pile of hot, steaming letters. Here are a few of my favorites and why I like them. Put yours in the comments below and you can win a copy of Shut Out by Kody Keplinger!
One of my favorite titles of all time is Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. I love titles that sound a little familiar but different enough that they are intriguing. I also like that it connects to a symbol that's used throughout the book. And, it's clever. The name pokes fun (mocks) the brutal and controlling government that the protagonist challenges.
Another one is Vegan Virgin Valentine by Carolyn Mackler. You can't beat that alliteration! And, it tells you exactly what you're going to get in the book. If you're interested in those things, this book is for you.
So, what are your favorites? This is a great week to play because I'm giving away two copies of Kody's book to two different people. "Shut Out" is also a great title. It has a great, halting, sound and a connection to sports, which are important in this book.
