top ten Hilarious Book Titles

Top Ten Most Hilarious Book Titles You’ve Come Across

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists! Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists.

I want to thank Bookish Nerd  for pointing some of these titles out!

So, Which one of these is your favorite?  Which one have you actually read?


  1. It's been awhile since I've read a good funny book, so I think I'll need to add a few of these to my TBR pile!

    You Don't Sweat Much for a Fat Girl sounds right up my alley!

    Come see my Top Ten / Teaser Tuesday!

    1. Definitely provided titles that are amusing...hope that the books are too!

  2. Haha. Love this list! I've seen a few of them around, but the husband strangling one is the funniest to me. What a great list!

    - Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl

    1. If only I had money in my wallet when I saw this on the shelf...though I don't think I would have sent the right message to my dear Husband!

  3. Great list! I have not read any of these but there are a few I might try just because of the title.

  4. This list is awesome. Loving the titles, especially Strangling Your Husband is NOT an :)

  5. Haven't read a funny book in awhile. I would like to check out #11.

  6. This list is hilarious. I have read some but I especially like numbers 2 and 16 and would like to check out number 17!! I laughed out loud at a few..

    Here is my Top Ten

  7. Haha, I love this list. There was no way that was ever going to be one of the TTT topics!!

  8. Hahaha, great list! May I humbly submit Alcatraz versus the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson and The Force Is Middling in This One by Robert Kroese?

    1. I have placed The Force on my TBR monster pile. Sounds hilarious! Same with your places NOT to read...though I have done all but one!

  10. Oh my God Kate, THIS was hilarious!! :D :D I am still laughing! :D :D

    1. glad I could provide amusement! What's even more amazing is that these books got published with the titles they have!

  11. My fave is 'Bitter is the New Black' The title of a book is sooo important and these prove that point perfectly!!

    1. Loved the title of this book, that's why I picked it up, and the story was humourous as well!


Thanks for taking the time to post a comment. If you leave a link to yours, I would love to visit... but it may take a few days before I comment or explore!

Sorry about the word verification - I hate them, too - but I hate vulgar spam more!
