Books With Interesting Titles

Beskrivning
Do you ever pick up a book just because the title is so interesting? If you've read a book with a great title, did it live up to your expectations? Books you've read, TBR and wishlist titles all welcome - if you like you can use the comments section to say why (you do have to add a book to your own list or give it the thumbs down to comment). How about titles that are just appalling/embarrassing and would put you off reading a book?

elkiedee: Bought for the title. I think one or two of the booksellers who worked at my local Ottakars branch at the time also likes a good title, as sfter Waterstones took over and shut this branch, they started an independent bookshop over the road, wjereim I found a few great books with brilliant titles!

elkiedee: Yes, I enjoyed the book nearly as much as the title. Quirky PI novel set in Toyland. Still need to read the sequel, The Toyminator.

elkiedee: Another Big Green Bookshop buy from their picture book shelves, and a huge hit with my son 7+ years ago. I wish the publishers would reprint this for today's small children.
