LET’S FIND A FEW OF THE MORE HILARIOUS BOOK TITLES I OWN

by 

When it comes to reading, sometimes we look for that right balance of serious (because there are issues that need to be treated so) and funny. Rarely am I ever in the mood for straight silly because I like that balance of relatable and yet humorous. However sometimes, even if the book isn’t solely that, there are hilarious and funny book titles that go make us giggle. As a way of giving them a little shout out, today that is our workable subject.

LIST | A FEW FAVORITE TV SHOW SISTERS FROM PRESENT TO PAST

Like usual my task is to always look at the books that are already on my shelf rather than go outside of this. That said, honestly, I’m not all that sure that I own many funny book titles. But we’ll see and hope for the best. Let’s take a look.


FUNNY BOOK TITLES


PRIDE, PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES, JANE AUSTEN + SETH GRAHAME-SMITH

I mean, this is kind of a given. The idea of pairing Jane Austen with zombies? Just way too funny. Goodreads 

PRETTY IN PUNXSUTAWNEY, LAURIE BOYLE CROMPTON

This one is super cute and follows a girl reliving her life in a kind of Groundhog Day type premise. Goodreads

DRESSED FOR DEATH, JULIANNA DEERING

Honestly, this series is REALLY good. Especially if you like British TV shows like Grantchester (a little lighter in these books) or something like ITV’s Marple. That said, I have to admit, a title like this does kind of make you go, wait, what!? Goodreads

PRIDE, PREJUDICE AND CHEESE GRITS, MARY ANNE HATHAWAY

Kind of cheating adding a book with essentially the same rule as one of the earlier titles on this list but pairing a Jane Austen title with an unusual thing (this time because the book is set in the south) is always a fun laugh. Goodreads funny book titles

YOU DESERVE EACH OTHER, SARAH HOGLE

I mean this one also may not be outright funny, but I just don’t think I have that many outrageous book titles on my shelf. Regardless, it’s kind of fun, nonetheless and maybe is funnier if you read the novel. Goodreads

A GOOD GIRL’S GUIDE TO MURDER, HOLLY JACKSON

If you just see this title and don’t know anything about it, it can read kind of funny. Of course, the plot is about a group of teens trying to solve murder so the title in that way makes sense. Goodreads

THE UNHONEYMOONERS, CHRISTINA LAUREN

Not all that humorous of a title, but it is cute although I, sadly, didn’t love the story inside. Goodreads

THE BACHELOR GIRL’S GUIDE TO MURDER, RACHEL MCMILLAN

Despite the title that seems to be a little funny, these mysteries are actually super fun! There are three novels and then some novella stories that act as kind of the “in between” of the novels. Fun characters, too! Goodreads

SUNNY SONG WILL NEVER BE FAMOUS, SUZANNE PARK

Not sure how this book reads (more serious or funny), but the title is cute if nothing else. Goodreads

FINDING MR. BETTER THAN YOU, SHERI PETROFF

Read this one quite a while ago, and honestly, it wasn’t what I was expecting. But then the title is also cute and funny in its own way. Goodreads

Have you read any of these? Would you? Which books have the funniest titles you’ve seen? What kind of “funny” novel do you prefer? Let’s meet up and chat in the comments!

Thanks, as always, for being here. I’m grateful you took the time. Going to try and visit your web spaces sooner rather than later, but if I fail (and I do!), just know I’m glad you stopped by. Thank you.

    1. I like Holly’s book title too. Just seemed a little fitting for today because it’s like a “how to” guide only it’d be one I’d never expect to find on a bookshelf! :) As always thanks for visiting, Mareli.

    1. For sure ridiculous, but he’s right. It does work. Surprisingly, lots of it is Austen’s own language and writing too (or that was my understanding) which is cool. :) Thanks for visiting, Pam!
