Both #scandal by Sarah Ockler and #16thingsithoughtweretrue by Janet Gurtler use the Twitter hashtag style in their titles. Of course both of these books have stories that center around social media, but I think the choice to use the Twitter hashtag style is interesting.
Now hastag titles (outside of Twitter) isn't new, musicians have done it quite a few times, for example Will.i.am and Justin Beiber's song #thatpower. This is mostly done to make the songs trend on Twitter and I wonder if these #hashtag books titles are trying to generate some of the same buzz ?
What do you think of the use of #titles ? Do you think we will see more in non-social media themed books?
