There are so many books out there whose titles include character names that I’m going to be narrowing this week’s topic down a little.
This is a list of books with character names in their titles, and I’ve read and would recommend all of them.
1. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
2. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
3. I Am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai
4. Heidi by Johanna Spyri
5. Anne of Green Gables (Anne of Green Gables, #1) by L.M. Montgomery
6. Bridget Jones’s Diary (Bridget Jones, #1) by Helen Fielding
7. Coraline by Neil Gaiman
8. Winnie-the-Pooh (Winnie-the-Pooh, #1) by A.A. Milne
9. Still Alice by Lisa Genova
10. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot
Before I wrote this post, I hadn’t realized that so many of the books featuring character names that I’ve read were written 100+ years ago. I hope that some of you will have good suggestions of contemporary works that fit this criteria.
