Perfect characters and situations gone wrong – books with perfect in their titles

What is it about perfection? Though impossible to achieve, we like to strive for the perfect job, house, relationship, etc. In books, the pressure is off. Seemingly perfect fictional characters are fun to read about because we can watch (from a safe distance) when it all goes wrong! Here are some perfect books I’ve read and a few more you might like.

  1. what a great theme! and perfect is such a tricky word!
    it was nice to see the different titles all lined up like this – i know we cannot judge a book by its title (or cover – ha) but my goodness does the title give us ideas
    and this was like an old fashioned “book talk” where someone gets us all skies about a theme

  2. Hi Barb,

    I’ve read Nine Perfect Strangers and The Perfect Couple, both excellent books. Now you’ve given me more to read! 🙂 Happy Valentine’s Day! xo

    1. Hi Jennifer – as you probably know, I love seeing what the trends are in titles, covers, etc. Thanks so much for reading and commenting. Hope all is well with you up there! We are set for another 5-8 inches of snow on Thursday. We’ve had so much this year and almost none last year.

      1. We had to wait until February to get snow and now it seems to be here to stay. More coming tonight. Oh well!
        “Woman” figures largely in book titles too. I have two books waiting for me at the library: The Woman in the Window and The Woman in the Attic, and my friend lent me The Woman in Cabin 10. Haha!

  3. Nice post, Barb! I look forward to reading (or listening to) Nice Perfect Strangers. Have you ever read The Perfect Storm? I enjoyed that a number of years ago, especially since I live in eastern Massachusetts and worked in Gloucester for a couple of years.
