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.
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick
John Dies at the End by David Wong
I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream by Harlan Ellison
When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris
The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical Tales by Oliver Sacks
And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
People Who Eat Darkness by Richard Lloyd Parry
We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver
Where Are You Going? Where Have You Been? by Carol Joyce Oates
So, those are some of my favourite book titles, that I think really grab the reader!
