August Readers Dozen

Need a little energy during the dog days of August? We have just the cure – check out a book with a verb in the title. That way, you satisfy the requirements for this month’s Readers Dozen, and you also get a little action without breaking a sweat. Ideal, right? 🙂

Here’s a list of ideas to help you find just the right read:

Goodreads: Titles using -ing verbs

Cosmoquest: Stories with verbs in the title

Look for:

  • Infinitive verbs: “to” + the verb, as in To Kill a Mockingbird
  • Past tense: “-ed” + verb, as in Marked for Death
  • Helping verbs: “should, will, have” + verb, as in Then She Was Gone
  • Negating word: “not” + verb, as in All the Light We Cannot See
