Top Ten Words in Titles of YA Genre Fiction I Have Read

A weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Okay, so as I was planning for this I started thinking about all the words who tend to repeat in YA Fantasy books. And as soon as I opened the floodgates the responses really started flowing. I know we all know those titles. They're "Noun of Noun and Noun."

So instead of having a list of like thirty words I decided to do a little experiment and see which words I have read the most titles. So here is that list and some of the books.

Shadow: 10
Star/Stars: 9
Queen: 7
King: 7
Bone: 7

Crown: 5
Midnight: 5
Daughter: 4
Blood: 4
Sky: 4

What books made your list? Or should I say keywords. Did we have any of the same? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!


  1. wow what a unique list-even though I haven't read too many YA's I have certainly seen them-and I think you got a great list!!

  2. Ooh nice ones! Seeing lots of people doing it like this! I struggled to stick with just one "age" level within the genre, so I just did it genre wise! Great picks too!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

  3. Fantasy books have been getting a lot of attention today. I hadn't seen it before, but yeah, the titles do contain a lot of overused words.

  4. Oh my gosh, these are all SO real. Why is YA fiction like this?? :) We can come up with better / more distinguishable-from-each-other titles, people!
