The Monday Poll: Titles We’d Change

Good morning, Hub readers!

Last week, we asked who the coolest robot, cyborg, or automaton in YA lit was. Coming in first with 41% of the vote was the titular character from the recently-published Cinder by Marissa Meyer, and coming in second was Marvin the Paranoid Android from Douglas Adams’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!

This week, we want to know about book titles. A title — like a cover — can make or break a book, both for its ability to pique a reader’s curiosity enough to pick up the book off of the shelf and read the summary to whether or not people feel comfortable recommending it to friends and family. Some titles are great, but others leave something to be desired. Which of the following titles do you most want to change? This is a pretty big question, so if none of the poll options look good, leave us a comment with some more suggestions! (And, as a bonus, let us know what new title you’d pick.)

  1. Hey, I like “The Knife of Never Letting Go,” as a title. Except that when I recommend it people always respond with “Huh?” and a blank stare…Ok, maybe you have a point.

  2. I like The Knife of Never Letting Go too! It actually relates to what the book and really the entire trilogy is about.
