Some of the best book titles out there


Today I’m bring you a post that was inspired by the Goodreads blog. A few days ago they posted a blog about books that hooked you just from the title, and I took some inspiration from that and have created this post, all to do with books that I think have some of the best titles.

I’ve chosen all the titles because I think they definitely pull you in before you’ve even read the synopsis. I like long titles in books (like I like long song titles… Panic! I’m look at you), so you’ll notice that all of these have quite hefty titles.

  1. What a cute post! I recognized quite a few of those stories…. I actually never read a book because of a title, it is only the reason I would pick it up. I’ve got to love the blurb too otherwise I’d have read hundreds of books about king Arthur because dragon was in the name, lol…

  2. Love your choices! I like long, odd titles that get you instantly intrigued as well. In fact, I’m currently reading a book called ‘There Once Lived a Woman Who Tried to Kill Her Neighbour’s Baby’, which definitely falls into that category! 😋

  3. ‘I have no mouth and I must scream’…sounds like an intriguing one! Some of my favourite book titles are the ones you find on romance novels. I read a lot of paranormal romance and some have really cheesey titles like ‘Pleasure of a Dark Prince’ 😛

    They literally grabbed me haha why do they need to talk about Kevin??? Is he a serial killer? Is he rapidly aging?? What is wrong with him?!

    Also love the title and cover for John Dies at the End!!

    1. I’m glad!!
      I could tell ya exactly why that need to talk about Kevin, but no spoilers!! Haha
      Unfortunately for me, the title and cover were the best bits about John Dies at the End! I’m in the minority with my feelings on it though

  5. I”ve read so many bad books this year, it’s my fault. I have to stop picking books based on their tantalizing descriptions. I’m totally taken in by promises of betrayal, passion, war! But they are always total shit. Must bring myself to select books promising slow neighborhoods in the dust bowl where the hero finds a spoon and learns a valuable lesson.
