Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Give Different Titles To

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is:

Books I’d Give Different Titles To

I’m actually really excited for this topic, so here it goes!

1. Meet Cute

This one is not a cute story, so the title doesn’t fit. Both characters are lawyers, so I think a legal term would be better.

2. Hate Notes

I get that this is a hate to love story, but it starts with a love note and doesn’t really have hate notes in it.

3. Hollywood Playboy

Tyler wasn’t a playboy. He was kind of the opposite. I think Hollywood Prince would have been a better title.

4. Hollywood Prince

I think this one would have been better Hollywood Playboy since the guy is a player. They just needed a title swap!

5. This Will Only Hurt a Little

It was painful to listen to and her story has lots of painful stuff in it.

6. Anti-Stepbrother

I get why it’s called Anti-Stepbrother, but it also makes this seem like a step-brother romance. It’s not that. I’m not sure what would be a better title.

7. Flashed

This is another book I’m not sure what it should be called. It’s part of a series about male review members who find love. Problem is this guy hasn’t been with the review for a while so it’s a former thing and I can’t think of anything to do with flashing in it. I mean, its cover and title match the series, but not really the book.

And it seems I am out of ideas quicker than I thought…

  1. The cover makes Anti-Stepbrother look like a stepbrother romance too. I’ve heard Meet Cute wasn’t a cute book too… although I would like to read it. I found it on sale earlier this year, so I just have to find time to read it.

    1. It totally does and it’s not a step-brother romance.
      Meet Cute was not cute at all. Don’t expect a rom-com and maybe you will like it more than the rest of us did. LOL

    1. There was maybe just one or two… I can’t even remember, but it wasn’t what the book was about.

  2. Great list! I do like the idea behind the Meet Cute title, but surely it would better suit a romance about a pair of actors or something? I agree a legal term sounds like it would fit a lot better.

    1. I agree. Well, maybe Busy Philip’s story only hurts some people a little. I just found her to be super loud, annoying, and she came off a little entitled or something.

    1. Yeah, it’s the whole stepbrother thing. When really the stepbrother doesn’t have much to do with the romance.

  3. Those are pretty much all new to me titles! Funny how the two from the same series just need to swap to fit better! Lol.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT!

  4. Aw that’s a shame that Meet Cute doesn’t fit the story. It looks like a cute story with that cover haha! But yeah I’m not a fan when the titles don’t match the story

  5. I saw a lot of people felt the title of Meet Cute and the cover were misleading. I would have expected something fun and cute based on that title too. I enjoyed Flashed, but I agree with the disconnect from the cover/title. I guess if you look at the series as focusing on the men, who were part of the revue, you can understand their connection, but again, the title and cover for Patrick’s story didn’t really fit.

    1. Well, if you decide to read it don’t go in expecting a cute story. It’s more contemporary than rom-com.

    1. Oh gosh. No, it’s a nickname she received as a young child that stuck. I can’t remember what her real name is.
