Top Ten Tuesday – Alice? Alice?! Who the heck is Alice?

Posted February 1, 2022 by elzaread in Top Ten Tuesday / 39 Comments

Greetings you guys! It’s Tuesday and therefore time for Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl.

Today’s prompt is one that you can actually have a whole reading challenge on and not only 10 books. Books with names/Character names in the title. My Mommy actually really want to use this as a yearly challenge somewhere soon and I just know that we will get a whole list of new titles today.

As my Mommy was falling asleep the other night, instead of counting kittens, she was thinking of names for this prompt. Always the teacher, she of course started with names in Alphabetical order. The first name that popped in her head, was Alice. And the second. And the third, and the fourth… Surely we can get at least 10 Alices!

  1. Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and what Alice found there by Lewis Caroll
  2. A Town like Alice by Nevil Shute
  3. Still Alice by Lisa Genova
  4. The Alice Network by Kate Quinn
  5. What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty
  6. Alice I have been by Melanie Benjamin
  7. The Strange Journey of Alice Pendelbury by Marc Levy
  8. Go ask Alice by Beatrice Sparks 
  9. The Truth about Alice by Jennifer Mathieu
  10. Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter 

 

And we actually have one or two spares here. Ha. Who ever would have imagined Alice to be such a popular name in literature. Let’s don’t forget about the awesome authors who are named Alice too!

  • Alice Hoffman
  • Alice Walker
  • Alice Sebold
  • Alice Feeney

 

Did we forget to add any Alice here today? Let us know please! I do hope that most of you can get a bit further in the alphabet than my Mommy did before she fell asleep.

Happy TTT!

      Gosh, I need to think about Eleanor now… From the top of my head I can only think of Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine. But that is also a great idea!

      Thanks for stopping by Marg!

      I honestly also didn’t think about it, until it hit my straight in the face! LOL!! Must actually see if there are more names that are used so often.

      Thanks for stopping by!

      I should have added a music or a YouTube link to the famous Smokie song as well. Thought about it too late!

      What Alice forgot is one of my favorite Liane Moriarty books. I hope you can get to it soon.

      Hope you are having a good week!

      Hi Dini! I need to see if there are other books with so many repetitive names. It really was pure luck that I thought of all of these!

      Thanks for stopping by!

      Hi Lydia! I know! It was beautiful and I’ve always thought that the movie was handled very well too.

      Thanks for stopping by and sorry for the late reply.

      Hi Leah! Neither did I! I really just popped into my head and I have actually read more than half of these. Finding the other 4 was rather easy as well!

    • elzaread

      It’s not my type of read at all, but I have added it because it seemed to be a popular choice on Goodreads. The first 6 on my list I have read though.

      Thanks for stopping by!

      The Alice Network was soo good! I do hope you will get to it this year. Have you read The Rose Code? Also a good read and actually my favorite Kate Quinn. So far.

      Thanks for stopping by!

      I honestely didn’t know it myself until it popped into my head and I just ran with it!

      Glad you enjoyed it.

      Hi Cindy! Oh there’s a few that I will definitely recommend for sure. What Alice Forgot, A Town Like Alice, Still Alice… I hope you get the chance to read a few of these.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  1. wow, now that’s super super impressive!!
    I haven’t read any other with Alice in the title, but I have read the author Alice Kaplan, who wrote this excellent book: Looking for The Stranger: Albert Camus and the Life of a Literary Classic

      And there’s another Alice author. I actually didn’t search for authors, but just used the ones that popped in my head.

      Glad you liked our post Emma!
