3rd Blogiversary: Guest Post by Agi + Giveaway

The Blogiversary celebrations continue today with a Top Three by book blogger Agi, from On My Bookshelf, and a Giveaway for a book of your choice. I've followed this blog since I started blogging myself and it's been an inspiration for me. It is a firm favourite of mine, so it's an honour to welcome Agi to the blog:

First of all, let me congratulate Alba on her 3rd Blogiversary! The blogging and bookish community wouldn't be the same without her - Alba, you are one of the warmest, nicest person ever and please, never stop blogging!

I was thinking long and hard about what to write about and the last minute idea is to tell you about my favourite books' titles. Earlier I thought that the shorter the title, the better but lately I've started to change my mind and I think the longer the title, the more hilarious/exciting/interesting/hooking it is. Don't you think?

1. It's one of the newest releases and the title is "The Good Girlfriend's Guide to Getting Even" by Anna Bell. I LOVE that almost all the words in this title begins with the same letter and it sounds brilliant when you read it out loud - just try. I think it is called alliteration? Whatever - I love it and this title truly describes what's waiting for us between the cover (that is gorgeous, BTW).

2. Is it cheating when I'm going to mention all titles by one author here? Lucy Robinson - not only is she a lovely, funny woman but also a genius writer and the titles of her books just tell it all: "The Unfinished Symphony of You and Me" (would you guess there is music involved?), "The Greatest Love Story of All Time" (would you guess it is really about THE greatest love story of all time?), "A Passionate Affair with a Total Stranger" (would you guess it is about a passionate affair?). They are brilliant, don't you think?

3. And Lisa Dickenson's titles - so eye - catching and so humorous! "You Had Me at Merlot" - it makes me want to drink wine immediately. "The Twelve Dates of Christmas" - not only do I want to go on a date but hello? Is it Christmas yet? "Catch Me if You Cannes" - don't you want to go on holidays, like, RIGHT NOW? 

Keep them coming, lovely authors :)
Thank you Agi for you kind words and for sharing your top book titles with us, a very original post! I also love long titles that play with sounds. 

And now, Agi is offering one lucy winner the chance to win this amazing Book Bundle:
