Happy Tuesday! It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, the weekly feature run by That Artsy Reader Girl where you choose ten books to fit a weekly prompt. This week’s prompt is books with a unit of time in the title. It specifies that they’re looking for things containing seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, eternity, etc. I had to get a little creative on this one or I’d be talking about one book. So here’s what I could come up with that in some way relates to this prompt.
Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin
“Tomorrow” may not be a unit of measure but it definitely signifies time so we’re going with it. This book doesn’t come out until July but I’ve heard nothing but good things. I already have my name down at the library to get a copy so hopefully I can read this one fairly soon.
The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow
If “month” counts than I think “January” should also count. I keep meaning to read this book but somehow never seem to pick it up. I think I’ll love it and the cover is so pretty, I’ll get there one day.
The Midnight Bargain by C.L. Polk
Again, not a unit of measure but “midnight” is a way of telling time AND there’s a watch on the cover so I say it counts. I love this cover and thought the idea of this book was really interesting but unfortunately, I didn’t love the book itself when I listened to the audiobook earlier this year.
One Day in December by Josie Silver
This one actually fits! I read this in early 2020 and don’t really remember it but I gave it 4 stars and said it was cute in my review.
Only on the Weekends by Dean Atta
“Weekends” is sort of a unit of time. This novel in verse just came out and I haven’t been able to read it yet. I loved The Black Flamingo by Atta and I’m looking forward to this one.
All the Ever Afters by Danielle Teller
“Ever after” seems close enough to a unit of time to me. I really enjoyed this Cinderella retelling focusing on the stepmother.
Always and Forever, Lara Jean
Similarly, “always and forever” is basically a measure of time. I had fun with this YA series, it was a good time.
Every Day by David Levithan
I didn’t like this book but it fits the prompt perfectly so here it is.
The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin
“Season” could measure time, right? I haven’t read this series yet and honestly, I’m super intimidated. Everyone speaks highly of this book but also mentions the odd tense and how it’s confusing. One day I’ll work up my courage and read it but for now, it stays on my TBR.
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
“Before” is again sort of a measure of time. I read this full series, it was pretty good. Not really my preferred genre but picked it up before I really figured out what I liked.
Hooray, I found 10! Happy reading!

I’m so curious about Only on the Weekends.

Season can definitely measure time, I also used “Seasons” in my list this week too!

Good job finding a full ten books. It was so hard. I’m curious about some of the books on your list. I’ve only read a couple. I’ll have to put the others on my TBR. 😀
Oooh, I had no idea Zevin had a new book coming out. I’m definitely going to check it out. Thanks for the heads-up!
