Top Ten Tuesday is weekly book blog meme hosted by the lovely girls over at The Broke and the Bookish.
This week's Top Ten Tuesday theme is: unique book titles!
I wasn't sure exactly what direction I wanted to go with this, so I just decided to stick to the basics and pick some titles that particularly stand out to me and don't fit the mold of most titles that you see out in the book world.
by J.J. Abrams & Doug Dorst

It just feels much more personal than most titles...

But really, what is the what?
Seriously though, this is the type of title where you say, "I'm reading a book called What is the What."
"What is the What."
"No, you're not funny. What are you reading?"
"What is the what."

And Jordan I have been. I actually really like this title.
by James Davidson
Okay, so the format of this title isn't all that unique, but how often to do you hear courtesans and fishcakes being used int he same phrase?
by Haruki Murakami
I also don't see many titles with the same word repeated not just once, but an additional two times.
What are some of the most unique titles you've heard?
