Reflections

Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.

Fashions in book titles, from Prozac Nation to Eat, Pray, Love to the current fad for "Land" books

First there were the books with "Nation" in the title, then the Eat, Pray, Love and Tiger Mom inspired titles. Now it's "Land" that's hot.

 

Some recent "Land" books:

 

"Low Land" by Jhumpa Lahiri

"Joyland” by Stephen King.

“Sisterland” by Curtis Sittenfeld.

“Fairyland” by Alysia Abbott.

“Jungleland” by Christopher S. Stewart.

“Motherland” by Amy Sohn.
