The primary draw of a book is always the cover art, at least if it is for me. But on occasion, sometimes it’s also the title that makes you look again. Today we take a look at some of the titles (based solely on the books I’ve reviewed) that have fun book titles that make you laugh, are fun or maybe look a second time.
Some of the books I’ve read or maybe just seen advertised over the years (this goes for film, too!) have titles that are a little bit ridiculous. Why I’m not sure, expect sometimes it’s a publisher that titles the novel, and not an author. That said, some of these titles are fun and others make me pause and wonder why that title is the one title that fit.
BOOK TITLES THAT MAKE YOU LAUGH

1: Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, Jane Austen and Seth Grahme-Smith
2: The Runaway Princess, Hester Browne
3: The Spice King, Elizabeth Camden
4: The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins
5: Pride, Prejudice and Cheese Grits, Mary Anne Hathaway
Going Jane Austen heavy today! This is, of course, a re-telling of Pride & Prejudice, but its title makes me giggle. No one is likely to ever associate cheese grits with the elegant Jane Austen story, however when its set in the South, anything goes. Amazon | Bookshop.org | Goodreads
6: You Deserve Each Other, Sarah Hogle
7: The Life and (Medieval) Times of Kit Sweetly, Jamie Pacton
8: Taming the Wind, Tracie Peterson
This title doesn’t make much sense to me just to read it. Not because a title always has to be logical (sometimes it’s more allegorical), but even at that, it just seems unfitting. That said, maybe if I’d re-read the book (it’s been YEARS), everything would make sense. Amazon | Bookshop.org | Goodreads
9: Pudge and Prejudice, A.K. Pittman
10: Love and Olives, Jenna Evans Welch
