"While her bookstore, Haven't Got a Clue, is rebuilt following a devastating fire, Tricia Miles and her sister Angelica decide to book a cruise for some much needed R&R. Naturally they choose a mystery lovers cruise, where they can ponder whodunnit in Adirondack chairs while sipping colorful drinks and soaking up some rays. But the fun is cut short when a fellow passenger is murdered for real"--

Trying to find a good name for the novel I'm writing, and hoping the Litten community can help me find inspiration. What titles stood out for you, made you want to pick up a book, whether it ended up being good or not?

Kappadeemom Please don‘t put “Girl” in the title 😂😂 2y
rachelm No suggestions just commiseration. Titles are rough! 2y
tracy.m.ng I feel like the title should connect to the book somewhat, and be brief on your title! 2y

RaimeyGallant @tracy.m.ng Me too:) 2y
Leah I‘m a total sucker for titles taken from poems or quotes. For whatever reason, they have a certain gravity or weight that sticks with me. All of Alan Bradley‘s Flavia de Luce books have titles like this (Thrice The Brinded Cat Hath Mewed, for instance). So, my recommendation for inspiration would be to click around on some poetry or quote sites, or leaf through a poetry anthology. 2y
Kaylamburson I definitely prefer concise titles (1-4 words). Agree with @tracy.m.ng!! 2y
mrozzz Wow what a great question. Need to think on this. 2y
mrozzz Oh but a little thing as a reader: I look out for mention of the title throughout and like to find it towards the ends during the climax 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @Kappadeemom ?? Also don't do "The ____'s Daughter" 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes I tend to like short somewhat ambiguous titles bc they make me want to know what the book is about. Next time I go to the library I'll scan the stacks for titles that jump out. 2y
thebacklistbook It has to mean something integral to the plotline, yet it is unclear how until the end of the book or even the series. 2y
bookandcat I never thought about how many books have "girl" in the title when they are talking about a woman (with dragon tattoo, gone, on a train, etc) ??? yeah don't do that lol. I'm a fan of shorter titles but this tends to be genre specific (E.g. romances can be super long titlewise) 2y
Velvetfur I like titles that makes me think, "what exactly does that mean?" and make me want to find out what it means by reading the book, for example ' The Unbearable Lightness Of Being" ? 2y

I can't be the only one who thinks that Tricia's preoccupation with calories and food does NOT FEEL HEALTHY AT ALL, can I? Every time she mentions it (which is at least twenty times in the first 100 pages), it jolts me right out of the story. It honestly feels like her "health-conscious" approach towards food is more like being on the brink of an eating disorder. ?

This is another series that I really enjoyed at the beginning, but which has faltered for me - on multiple levels - as it's gone on. But I keep coming back -- mostly for Mr. Everett, who is absolutely my favorite character.

actualdisneyprincess I CANNOT STAND TRICIA ANYMORE, OH MY /GOD/. Three baby carrots and a teaspoon of duck confit are not going to give you "the cruise ship bulge!!!!!!" 2y

Parents do NOT babysit their own children. It's called parenting.

This really bugs me. And I'm not a parent.

ReadingSusan That bugs the heck out of me especially since it's mostly used towards men 😡😡 3y
melbeautyandbooks @ReadingSusan - Yes! I'm happy to hear I'm not the only one. 3y
TrishB Grrrr....I'm always arguing about this. @ReadingSusan I think it's always about men! 3y

Sue I'm there with you. Use of language says so much. 3y
melbeautyandbooks @TrishB @Sue Thanks for confirming I am not the only person who is bugged by this. It really sends a message that it's the mother's job to be a parent, and the dad just has to do it temporarily every so often. ( Of course this assumes a mother- father household). Have a great day everyone! 3y
Laalaleighh I ranted to my bf about this today!!! 3y
