This week it’s Recommend A Book With a Three Word Title
Since so many books are either one word titles or a close to a sentence, it was hard for me to think of a three word title on my own. I had to go to my Goodreads lists for this one!
Since 3 is the magic number today, I picked my 3 favorite Three Word Titles from 2012:
An awesome picture book illustrated by Adam Rex. This is a freaking perfect book that some wackos want banned from libraries. I read it to my 8th graders and they LOVED it! We call it The Naked Book. Here’s the quick version: He’s dirty, he gets a bath, his dog doesn’t recognize him, hilarity ensues, there’s naked parts, it is uprouriously funny!
This book is a total WOW! for me. It freaked me out because it could SO TOTALLY HAPPEN right now, for real life! EMP’s go off, we have no power, no modern comforts, no transportation, no communication. Panic ensues and we’re all turning on each other to survive. Personally, just the thought of no air conditioning, iced coffee, or internet freaks me out. This book about pushed me over the edge. Just WOW! If you haven’t read it, you need to! Huge thanks to Parajunkee for getting me to read this one!
This awesome Zombie (yes, the get proper noun cred!) series is funny, poignant, and really freaking awesome! Brothers Tom and Benny Imura work to quiet Zoms in a crazy post apocalyptic world that isn’t ever what it seems. Good guys, bad guys, confusion, and teen angst all come together in a series that is as exciting as it is undead! I’ve already ordered the third in the series Flesh & Bone, which is due out in September. If you are new to the whole Zombie Lit craze, this is a great place to start. Pick up Rot & Ruin and you’ll be hooked!
