The Best Books With Three in the Title

Updated October 13, 2018 315 votes 41 voters 5.3k views

It turns out that books with three in the title are way more common than you think. Here are 100+ good books with three in the title, including both fiction and non-fiction. It's safe to say that many of these titles are books about trinities, trios, or things that come in threes, but the core commonality between these books is that they have the word three in the title.

Books with three in the title include The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas, The Dark Tower II: The Drawing of the Three by Stephen King, and The Book of Three by Lloyd Alexander. If you have a favorite three book, vote it up below, or add it to the list if it's not already here. It doesn't matter if it's science fiction, fantasy, romance, or non-fiction - if the book has three in the name, it belongs on this list.
