Book Blogger Hop 11

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.

  2. Trashy romance titles are certainly the funniest. Kidnapped by a sexy duke . . .

  3. High five. Those are pretty awesome! The old romances have some of the best covers too.

  6. Thanks for hopping by my blog! Those romance titles are really bad. I know I shouldn't rip on them because a lot of people like that genre, but some romance books seriously make me laugh with their titles/covers.
    Have a good weekend!

  8. That last book sounds interesting -- especially with that little blurb from Library Journal! :)

  9. I kinda love those titles. I think I love the last book just because of the blurb!

  10. Excellent and funny titles for your choices. :) I'd never thought about regular romance titles for this question. Then again, most of my romance books (paranormal in nature) don't seem to have interesting titles. :) Thank you for visiting and for sharing. Happy reading!
