Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
The rules are simple:
- Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.
- Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
- Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists.
- Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment on her weekly post.
This week the topic is:
LONG Book Titles.
While coming up with a one-word title is difficult, some authors just let themselves go wild and entitle their books with nearly whole paragraphs of text. Here are the longest entitled books (and I’m including non-fiction with fiction in this list) that I’ve reviewed on this blog in descending order.

10b. Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café by Fannie Flagg (8 words, 38 characters, 45 with spaces)
9. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Schaffer (8 words, 42 characters, 49 with spaces)
8. Paris: The Epic Novel of the City of Lights by Edward Rutherfurd (9 words, 35 characters, 43 with spaces)
7. Things My Son Needs to Know About the World by Fredrik Backman (9 words, 35 characters, 43 with spaces)
