Top Ten Books I Read Because of the Title

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature organized by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is devoted to books you read because of their awesome title or cover. (Good thing it doesn’t include the ones I have bought but not yet read or this would be nearly impossible.) I don’t know that I ever read a book entirely because of a title or cover, but having good ones certainly doesn’t hurt in the decision making process. These titles pretty much beg to be read:

  1. The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse by Robert Rankin
  2. Spanking Shakespeare by Jake Wizner
  3. Castration Celebration by Jake Wizner
  4. Going Bovine by Libba Bray
  5. How to Say Goodbye in Robot by Natalie Standiford
  6. The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things by Caryoln Mackler
  7. The Absolute Value of -1 by Steve Brezenoff
  8. God is in the Pancakes by Robin Epstein
  9. My Cousin, My Gastroenterologist by Mark Leyner
  10. Putting Makeup on Dead People by Jen Violi

    • It’s a fantastically funny book (with a male pov).
