Top Ten Tuesday: Book Titles that Would Make Great Song Titles

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and Bookish and hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

I’ve always got music on the go. It helps me focus (not when reading), puts me in a good mood, and it’s just fun to break out inna dance party every now and then. Here are some epic book that would make epic song titles.

1. Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor: Can you imagine how haunting a song with this title could be. The entire vibe of this title is like one slow, melodic, and haunting track. Definitely one that gives off moody vibes.

2. The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller: This title could be interpreted in many ways. You could focus on the achilles heel, pride, heroism, or even the greatest love story to come out of the Trojan war – but that would break my heart all over again.

3. Morning Star by Pierce Brown: For the sheer fun of it, let’s take what’s sure to be one of the most brutal reading experiences I’ll ever encounter and have the song be one of those dance to the beat, feel-good anthems.

4. I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios: Could be nostalgia, could be romantic, could be a heartbreak. I’m pretty sure there’s already a song with this title, but it has so many different meanings.

5. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta: This title would be all kinds of nostalgic. Reflecting on the good and bad that happened on this road and how it led to where they are now. It’d make a great song, but also a lovely homage to the book.

6. Rookie Move by Sarina Bowen: People could have a lot of fun with this title. We’re all rookies to start so this could be the how to training song guide to love.

7. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo: If ever there was an apt summary of the state of the world, this would be it. You could take this song title and roll with its fantastical elements that craftily comments on the state of the world.

8. This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab: This song will only be acceptable with violins. That is all.

9. Outrun the Moon by Stacey Lee: A dreamer’s song. The type that lets you undulge in all of your youthful fantasies and the will to chase them.

10. The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski: This title would make such a powerful anthem. I can just hear the guitar roaring in the song. The anger, resentment, and anguish on the dark side of victory.

Which book title do you think would make a great song title?

      1. I’ve not read it but I read Circe earlier this year by the same author and really enjoyed it, so I definitely want to check out The Song of Achilles at some point. I wasn’t a fan of Strange The Dreamer, so I haven’t read Muse of Nightmares, but it does sound like a great song title.


  1. I love, love that you put This Savage Song on your list. I would definitely listen to a song with that title. I have This Savage Song on my TBR and am really excited to read it whenever I finally get to it ๐Ÿ˜‚ The Winner’s Curse is a great book title for a song title… it was a great book, too! Great TTT!
