With The Fire On High, through part 1, titles are weird 

I don't know what I thought the title referred to exactly before I got to it. Something about...angels, maybe? Because I think I've probably only heard "on high" in Christmas carols?

So when I got to it in the narrator's voice and it's nothing like that at all, it's just like "huh."

Which made me think about how little I noted the title and how unhelpful a lot of titles are at what's inside and idk.

With The Fire On High, through part 1, titles are weird 

I know this book has been sort of at the back of my reading list for awhile because the summary seemed interesting and it was frequently recommended, but the title didn't seem to be connected and so didn't stick in my mind. Like FOB song titles! So I'd see it in my list and be like "wazzat?" and move on to something I remembered better.

But I like it a lot! Glad I finally got it bumped up to the front of the list.
