TTT# 3: Top Ten Most Hilarious Book Titles You Have Come Across

Note: I haven’t had the pleasure of reading most of these. I’ve discovered them while working in a public library.

  1. Hold Me Closer, Necromancerby Lish MCBride. (Elton John is singing in my head.)
  2. Killer Pancake by Diana Mott Davidson. (An aside: The next time you hear someone complain about video games being violent, remember that the emergence and popularity of the subgenres of recipe, cat and knitting murder mysteries are proof that sweet-looking older women also escape into worlds filled with blood and guts. Think Arsenic and Old Lace.)
  3. Tall, Dark and Texan by Jodi Thomas. (Romance or Horror? Choose your own adventure.)
  4. Crazy Aunt Purl’s Drunk, Divorced, and Covered in Cat Hair: The True-Life Misadventures of a 30 Something who Learned to Knit After He Split by Laurie Perry
  5. No Choice but Seduction by Johanna Lindsay. (I won’t begin to imagine the plot contrivances necessary to reach that point.)
  6. Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs. (Say it aloud. Then picture Stallone delivering this line after the kill.)  
  7. The Unbearable Lightness of Scones by Alexander McCall Smith. (Sometimes a pastry is just that good!)
  8. A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by David Eggers. (How modest!)   
  9. Cooking with Pooh (As in Winnie the Pooh)
  10. The Day My Butt Went Psycho: Based on a True Story by Andy Griffiths.

  1. I was thinking of choosing this topic- there are so many witty titles to choose from! I love your choices. #1 is supposed to be an awesome book and I’ve been meaning to read it. #4 is hilarious. # 7 is a good one too- it would make a good cookbook title. Thanks for the laugh!
