I share a lot of book covers on this blog, but I also find myself noticing a lot of other bookish things like blurbs and titles, and sometimes I like to share those too. I mean, covers are not the only thing that influences my decision to buy or read a book. Titles are the first thing I see right along with the cover, and they probably have just as much influence since they often are what gives you an idea of what the book might actually be about.
I mean, consider this: I either have read or want to read every book on this list which means good titles clearly work!
So here are ten of my favorite book titles that I’ve gathered just for kicks to share with you all. Some are funny, some are clever, some are unique, and all are awesomely interesting ;-)
1. Corpses Say the Darndest Things by Doug Lamoreux
Well, from my limited experience with corpses (read: none), I would imagine that, if they did speak, this would probably be accurate.
2. Zombie Day Care by Craig Halloran
A day care for zombie children?! Need I say more???
3. Trailer Park Fae by Lilith Saintcrow
If I were choosing favorites for this list, I’d probably choose this one. Many of you already know my obsession with the cover, but it was actually the title that made me read it in the first place. I just love the unique juxtaposition of the word fae, something so elegant, and trailer park, something so… not elegant.
4. My Life as a White Trash Zombie by Diana Rowland
This is another fun, unique juxtaposition.
5. “Alcohol Was Not Involved” by Teresa Duncan
I’m pretty sure that’s what everyone says precisely when alcohol was involved.
6. Grumpy Old Wizards by John O’Riley
Because who doesn’t love grumpy old people? I wonder if they hurl magic at kids while they shout at them to get off their lawn.
7. How to Date Dead Guys by Ann M. Noser
And I thought dating live guys was hard…
8. Hot Pterodactyl Boyfriend by Alan Cumyn
Well that’s different. You don’t see a whole lot of hot dinosaur guys.
9. The Amazing Adventures of Dave the Depressed Alcoholic Superhero by E.D. Wallace
Maybe I would read more superhero books if they all sounded this interesting.
10. Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things by Martina McAtee
No, they probably shouldn’t.
