Books I Would Rename

This book is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana of That Artsy Reader Girl.

A book’s title is one of the most important things of writing the book. Editors, agents, and authors argue and stress for months about the all important title (I think). But, the title isn’t always bang on. There are a number of titles I’d change up to reflect the contents of the book within. Not to pour any ill on the work of the editors.


This is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay

What I’d name it: Why You Should Never Be an OB/GYN

Filter This by Sophie White

What I’d name it: Unfiltered

The Man Who Didn’t Call by Rosie Walsh

What I’d name it: Ghosted (this is the US title, and I think it fit much better)

Field Notes on Love by Jennifer E. Smith

What I’d name it: Road Trip

Four Weddings and a Festival by Annie Robertson

What I’d name it: Wedding Season

My Name is Anna by Lizzy Barber

What I’d name it: Who Is Anna?

It Only Happens in the Movies by Holly Bourne

What I’d name it: Just Like the Movies

What books would you rename if given the chance?

  1. I also felt like Field Notes on Love wasn’t the best title, there was barely any field notes. I agree Ghosted is a much better title for that book as everyone knows what ghosting is and it stands out
