Great list! The Band That Played On and The Ornament of the World sound really interesting.
Great list Lydia. As I was searching my lists, I noticed that my longest titles were Non-Fiction, so I made two lists. I see yours look non-fiction. I like the sound of a couple of these so am checking out The Band That Played On and The Heart Knows Something Different.
Thank you very much! Yes, my list was pretty nonfiction as well.
Wonderful list. Lots of nonfiction. I’m always intrigued by long titles.
I think this may be the longest set of titles I’ll come across today, well done!
Thank you. 🙂
I’ll have to let Irene Blea know about #2. She’s written a number of textbooks of Chicana studies. Thanks for coming by.
Oh, cool! Hope she likes it. And you’re welcome.
The Complete Manual of Things That Might Kill You: A Guide to Self-Diagnosis for Hypochondriacs by Megan E. Bluhm Foldenauer
Isn’t WebMD bad enough?? I don’t think I need this one! Great list!
Ha, I hear you there! And thanks.
Never heard of any of these but you’ve got some whoppers here!
You have a nice variety of selections there! I like the sound of the hypochondriacs one- but it might just make me nervous lol!!!!
Heh, I can’t blame you there. 🙂
Wow, I think you win for the longest titles I’ve seen on any list so far today. 🙂
Some really long titles there. Quite interesting.
Wow, now those are some really long titles! I never even thought about non-fiction. Duh, how out of it am I? Ha! Ha! I think you get today’s prize. 😉
Heh, thank you!
I saw some of these in my hunt to compile a list. Among the Missing and The Complete Manual of Things That Might Kill you sound interesting. The Heart Knows Something Different must be so touching.
Thanks for sharing and for visiting my blog.
You’re welcome. And, yes, I’ll bet The Heart Knows Something Different is touching.
Nonfiction is clearly the place to go for super-long book titles!
Nonfiction with those magnificent subtitles! Did you count words to figure out how many in the longest title? Thanks for visiting my post…..I appreciate it!~
You’re quite welcome. And, no, I didn’t think to do that, but it’s a good idea.
These are great! I’m not sure what is says about me that my eyes immediately snagged on ‘Why Mindfulness is Better Than Chocolate’ though 😀
Oh, boy. These ARE really long titles. It blows my mind what authors/publishers will do.
Heh, I hear you there.
Such an interesting-sounding selection of books! I’m not familiar with any of these, but The Band That Played On sounds like something I’d want to read.
That book was excellent. I highly recommend it.
There’s something here for everyone! Great list!
Thanks a lot!
I noticed that non-fiction books tend to have longer titles than fiction while I was making my list this week. Great list!
Yes, I noticed the same thing. And thanks.
I try to read a book on the Titanic disaster every April, I’ve seen The band who played on.
Non fiction authors do ramble way more than fiction writers. Don’t you think?
Yes, they sure do. What a cool tradition. And thanks.
Good choice to go with nonfiction books and all those long subtitles! 🙂
The Brownie Experience sound so interesting! Sweets and lettering? Cool!
I totally agree with you there.
What an amazing list! Mine feels so inadequate now :>
Thank you. I think your list was lovely.
Possibly the most original list of the day! Great work!
Aww, thanks. What a nice compliment.
Oh that Titanic one sounds interesting! Some great choices here.
So glad you think so! Thanks.
Great list! Though I have to disagree with that one title: chocolate is better that meditation. 😉
I like that you included a book about mindfulness; I am definitely going to check that one out! That, and the The Brownie Experience. I like how your list is well-rounded in terms of topics covered!
I hope you enjoy it!
Some really interesting books here! Great list 🙂
Thanks a lot.
Whoa, you definitely found the longest book titles EVER! 😂😂😂
Heh, I tried. 🙂
Great list! And they are definitely some long titles… The Heart Knows Something Different: Teenage Voices from the Foster Care System looks really interesting. Happy reading. 🙂
I had the same reaction to that book. And thanks.
Oh wow. So many fascinating topics I would never have thought to look for! The brownie book and the mindfulness book might be going to war in my heart… I like what the latter is saying, but brownies are my favorite dessert EVER and this book seems like a dream come true. And hand-lettering?? Also my weakness. It kind of reminds me of Susan Branch’s books.
That’s pretty neat. 🙂
Non-Fiction have the longest titles!! I love the sounds of the Titanic book. Sounds super sad, but it’s good to remember the unsung heroes.
Yes, it sure is. And I’ve noticed the same thing about the nonfiction genre.
Most of these sound so good! I like history though, and a lot of these are in that category, so maybe that’s why they ring my bells.
Same here. 🙂 And thanks.
These are so long that I had a hard time reading many of them on the first try, haha. I’m not really a non fiction reader, but some of these my be interesting to look into. I’m also intrigued by The Brownie Experience having recipes and calligraphy… a strange mix, but one I would might be interested in.
I hope you like that book if you read it.
These books are tongue twisters!!! Super long. Particularly interested with the 9th one!
Yes, they sure are!
I don’t tend to read much non fiction but some of these titles sounds really interesting.
I love missing person cases, so I’m definitely going to have to add Among the Missing to my TBR pile!
I love this list! There’s a nice variety of books that sound super interesting. I love brownies, so I’m totally down for that one 🙂 I also find Titanic books endlessly fascinating. Missing persons and the foster care system are also subjects I find intriguing. I’ll definitely be checking some of these out.
Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!
Happy TTT to you as well!
I hope you enjoy all of the books that caught your eye.
Love your list Lydia! I have not read any of these and will check out The Band that Played on first.
Non-fiction titles are certainly longer (even excluding any subtitles)…
Thank you very much. And, yes, non-fiction titles do seem to be longer for sure.
You found some seriously long titles!
No 9 — oh man do I know someone who would enjoy that title! Incredible list and titles LOL!
Heh, that’s great.
The brownie books and the one about the Titanic would be two books that called my name!
