Top Ten Tuesday: Common words in New Adult titles

Happy Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s theme is a little different than the usual: ten words that are frequently used in ____ titles. We can choose our own age group or genre, so I went with new adult since I felt like that was the genre with the most predictable titles. I copied every single new adult title I’ve read over the last five years into the wordclouds generator and let it do the work for me. The result was actually sort of surprising because even the most common words weren’t used more than five times!


Anyway, the top ten words in the new adult books I’ve read are:

  1. addicted
  2. little
  3. royal
  4. kind
  5. sincerely
  6. something
  7. allure
  8. dirty
  9. heart
  10. long

Did you participate in today’s theme? If so, what words were the most prevalent in the genre you picked?
