The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books.
This week's 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 suppose I have a few books with crazy titles... but nothing on earth beats the recent spate of romance novels with ridiculous titles like: Magnate's Mistress Accidentally Pregnant! or The Brazilian Millionaire's Love-Child. Those are real titles! No, I don't own them. But just hearing those titles makes me laugh out loud.
Can I Get There by Candlelight? by Julius Horwitz, published in 1963, doesn't have a crazy title, but I loved the back cover copy so much, I had to buy the book. There's a quote from Library Journal on the back which reads: "Librarians will help the cause of literature by rejecting this unsavory stew of sex, liquor and street language." It's honestly a very tame book by today's standards.
