Top Ten Tuesday : Books That Would Make Good Band Names?


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme where every Tuesday we look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) bookish examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  Top Ten Tuesday (created and hosted by  The Broke and Bookish) is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and future week’s topics can be found here.  This week’s topic is : Titles That Would Make Good Band Names.  I enjoyed this one and can’t help thinking that SFF books really lend themselves to this topic.  What do you think of my picks?:

  1. Gutter Prayer
  2. The Furies
  3. Limited Wish
  4. Songs from the Deep
  5. Spinning Silver
  6. Trail of Lightning
  7. No Sleep till Doomsday
  8. The Silent Companions
  9. The Just City
  10. Dreamer’s Pool

    I love this topic, not sure why I didn’t do a post today! These are all great, I especially love The Gutter Prayer and Limited Wish😁

      This was so much easier to put together than I thought in fact when I was going through my images I came up with some even better names but I’d made my list by then.

    Gutter Prayer is great! And No Sleep til Doomsday sounds like a song that like, a 90s alt rock/emo band would have sung. I love it!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I really love Gutter Prayer as a rock band name – it just sounds right.
      Lynn 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, I really liked The Furies – maybe a punk band!

    This is such a fun topic. A lot of mine sounded like heavy metal bands. I am LOVING The Gutter Prayer and Spinning Silver!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Gutter Prayer was the first one I thought of and it seemed such a perfect fit – I expected to struggle with this one but then I ended up really enjoying it.

    One of the best topics I choose to do so far – and in your delightful list Songs from the Deep is the one that I like best. 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, I like that one too – this was a much more fun topic than I first thought.

    I can see Gutter Prayer being an awesome name for a metal band!

    • @lynnsbooks

      It’s so good for a band name – in fact SFF really lends itself to this topic.
      Lynn 😀

  11. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    Oh yes, SFF definitely lends itself well to this topic. I mean, The Gutter Prayer! Such a good band name right there.

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, that was my favourite one – I saw some other really great books when I was looking through my images but I’d made my list by then. This was such an easy topic.
      Lynn 😀

    Yessss, all of these would make FANTASTIC band names. I look forward to their eventual albums. 😉

    • @lynnsbooks

      Hahah – SFF titles do make good band names.I could easily have extended this list.
      Lynn 😀
