I’m only looking at books I’ve READ with numbers in the title.
I’ve omitted books with years in the title or things like WWII or George V in the title.
My favorite books with numbers in the title?
44 Scotland Street, which includes The Importance of Being Seven
and The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency, both by Alexander McCall Smith
Stephanie Plum by Janet Evanovich [All have consecutively numbered titles]
And now, the other books I’ve read with numbers in the title
Dick Francis’ books are an escape I enjoy from time-to-time. 10lb Penalty.
Ninety-nine  Glimpses of Princess Margaret by Craig Brown. My review.
The 19th Wife: A Novel by David Ebershoff
Thirteenth Tale by Diana Setterfield
My review from my old blog:
While I did find passages that could have been whittled down a few hundred words, about 80% of this book was tremendous. My soul mate was not the reclusive author who has never told the truth about herself in an interview, but rather the would-be biographer finally chosen to tell the story. Part Grimm’s Fairy Tales, part life of a book loving, perfect-vacation-is-a-trip-to-an-archive biographer’s story of writing the story of the author’s life, this book has the feel of Daphane De Maurier’s classic Rebecca. There’s no Mrs. Danvers but that lurking “someone” is always present. It also presents the dark gloom of Heathcliff’s moors in Jane Eyre–in fact that book is almost a “character” in this story. This is not a book for someone who doesn’t love research and doesn’t love books. It’s not for someone wanting a cheery happy families story. The family part is more Glass Castle than Elizabeth Enright, but that was ok to me.
Speaking of Elizabeh Enright…
Spiderweb for Two, The Four Story Mistake, and Then There Were Five by Elizabeth Enright are all part of the Melendy Quartet–a series I absolutely love! If you love the Penderwicks, you’ll love the Melendy family, too. Like the Penderwicks, you need to read them in order. (Note, then go on and read Hilary McKay’s Casson Family seires–a artsy, modern, British version.)
I loved this one almost as much as I did Me Before You. One Plus One by JoJo Moyes
Fourteen: Growing Up Alone in a Crowd by Stephen Zanichkowsky
Forget the crazy Duggars and Bates families on tv–this family had clucked eggs and brother who was sent to a mental institution. Dysfunctional times fourteen.
A lifetime favorite of mine–probably the origin of my love of stories told in letters, diaries, e-mails, notes or tweets (See epistolary novels in the word cloud sidebar). 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff.
Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan
