“GAH. WOE IS ME. I SHALL DIE WITHOUT AT LEAST TWO PECAN PIES.”
We’ve all got a dollop of drama queen within us. (Me, I’ve been told, a little more than others.) That’s what makes life sparkle! Some book titles, in fact, could do with a few more dollops of drama. You know, just to keep things bubbling. So I’ve rewritten some titles to let the novels’ true dive selves shine.
Can you guess the YA book by the overdramatic title?
LET’S GET STRAIGHT TO THE DEEP STUFF, SHALL WE? Sure, this title might be a bit longer than the usual, but it sure is more
deadly dramatic too! Can you guess this woeful book?
If I Stay by Gayle Forman! Sure, “If I Stay” is poetic enough, but my renamed title seems far more stylish, don’t ya think?
WELL ISN’T THIS TRAGIC. Too dramatic? Impossible! This title provides the most delightfully alluring amount of despair. What book could this title possibly belong to?
Written in the Stars by Aisha Saeed! I mean, okay, “Written in the Stars” has a rather spiffy ring to it. But doesn’t my revision really quicken the pace of your heart? I think yes.
OH NO?? SCHOOL IN PARIS?? HOW COULD ONE ENDURE SUCH PERILS?? (I’m sooo good at this drama thing, right?) Guess the book! Guess! (C’mon son, don’t be a Scar)
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins! We’re friends, so I’m going to be honest you. “Anna and the French Kiss” is a terrible title. Horrific. Terrifying. Haunting. My rewrite, of course, is far superior.
#RELATABLE. With the most succulent dose of drama. Whatever could this heart-stopping title belong to?
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han! Ah, the fake dating masterpiece, the rom-com to rule over generations. Such a book deserves such a title!
