Book Blogger Hop - Book Titles

This is a book meme over at Crazy For Books. This wee
ks question is;

“Let’s talk crazy book titles! Highlight one or two (or as many as you like!) titles in your personal collection that have the most interesting titles! If you can’t find any, feel free to find one on the internet!”

I think I pay less attention to the book title than mostpeople. I very rarely have an opinion on them one way or the other. They only actually annoy me when the link between the title and the book is extremely tenacious. I do like funny book titles though and some humour titles have stood out for me in the past. They have encouraged me to look at the book. However, my favourite titles actually come from books that I would never read. I love those Mills & Boon titles. I think they are hilarious. I used to deal with those books and my friends and I would get a kick out of reading out that months favourites. I've picked out a few so you can see for yourself. Of course I understand that not everyone will find them funny.

These are just a few and there are funnier ones out there. I tend to find the best ones have 'rake' somewhere in the title.

What's your favourite titles?


  1. New follower. Interesting titles. You can check out my blog at

  2. Ha ha ha YES! I used to do the same. Ah those Harlequin Romance novels and their titles of epic ridiculousness. I just did a quick search in the online book store and got:

    - Rich Man's Love-Child
    - Bedded By The Greek Billionaire
    - Billionaire And His Boss
    - Bargain Called Marriage

    Ha ha ha, it's still as funny...

  3. Thanks Cristina! Will follow you back

    I know, I love them. I think I like your list better. I also like;

    The Tortured Rake
    Seduced by the Scoundrel
    It Started with a pregnancy.

  5. Hilarious Titles! Look at mine!!!

    Happy blog hopping!.

    I read varied genres, have a truly eclectic taste in books. Feel free to explore my blog, browse my reviews. I follow via google reader NOT GFC!

    Here is my Book Blogger Hop/Follow Friday post!

  6. I easily came up with five crazy book titles just by taking a fast look at my bookshelf.

    All five come from the same book series. Can you guess which series it is?

    Here’s a hint – The book series is a trilogy in five parts.

    Hop on over to my blog for the answer –

    Howard A. Sherman, Implementor
    Get Inside a Story

  7. Yes, often these are oddly hilarious!

    I'd love to have you stop by my blog and take a look at my post, The Hop: Reading a Jigsaw Puzzle. And don't forget to sign up for the Readerbuzz August Giveaway!

  8. Paranormal romances can have some funny ones. My mother and I were book browsing today and we had a laugh about Sexy Beast (which has five volumes, denoted in roman numerals).

    Have a great weekend!

  9. LOL The Reluctant Surrenderer? That's too silly :-)

    Happy Blog Hop!

  10. lol, Laura that's quite a funny title too.

  11. I also don't pay that much attention to the title. I am more interested in the cover design and the blurb.
    Thanks for stopping by.
    Have a good weekend.
