Top Ten Tuesday: Hilarious Book Titles

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Two women laughing while reading books. One has a book on top of her head. This is one of those topics I could talk about forever! Isn’t it wonderful to chuckle when you read the title of a book?

I like to collect hilarious book titles as I search for new books to read.

There are some quite clever ones out there. The more you find, the easier it is to discover even more of them in my experience.

Here are just a few of the ones I’ve discovered. Yes, I’m sure a couple of them are probably repeats from previous TTT topics, but why not giggle at them again?

The only one I’ve read so far is How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming. It was an informative, interesting, and sometimes funny read.

1. How I Stole Johnny Depp’s Alien Girlfriend by Gary Ghislain

2. Everything I Needed to Know about Women I Learned by Reading Twilight: A Vampire’s Guide to Eternal Love by Jim Lee

3. You Don’t Have to Be Evil to Work Here, But it Helps (J. W. Wells & Co., #4) by Tom Holt

4. This book cover and title have nothing to do with this book. by Jarod Kintz

5. How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming by Mike Brown

6. Hello Kitty Must Die by Angela S. Choi

7. Nibbled to Death by Ducks by Robert Wright Campbell

8. My Ass Is Haunted By The Gay Unicorn Colonel by Chuck Tingle

9. How to Defeat Your Own Clone and Other Tips for Surviving the Biotech Revolution by Kyle Kurpinski

10. Surviving Your Stupid Stupid Decision to Go to Grad School by Adam Ruben

    Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday list!

  10. Oh, these are great! I’ve also read How I Killed Pluto, but some of these others sound just as funny. You Don’t Have to be Evil to Work Here But it Helps is my current favorite title from your list.

    My TTT:

  11. I love #3, and 5 and 6 as well. I saw the Pluto thing mentioned in someone else’s blog as well, and thought it sounded good.

    #9 might actually have some good information lol!

  12. Jo

    Some very funny titles here! My Ass Is Haunted By The Grey Unicorn Colonel is possibly my favourite.
    My TTT:

  13. I came across How I Stole Johnny Depp’s Alien Girlfriend and almost used it too for this week’s top ten tuesday but changed my mind at the last second. 😅

  14. You found some great funny titles for this week’s TTT! Love them. 😀

  15. My Ass is Haunted by the Gay Unicorn Colonel is a hilarious title.

  16. Haha, these are definitely some funny titles! This week is a fun topic 🙂

  17. Cool list – I particularly chuckled at “this book cover & title have nothing to do with the book” – I think I’ve seen a lot of books where that applies! 🙂
    here’s me this week:

  18. These sounds like sci-fi to me. It’s fun to just read their titles.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog. Have a lovely day.

  19. Oh my gosh! Where did you get these?? Hilarious. Hello Kitty must die. Oh no…. My husband actually always calls it Die Kitty, die!! He’s going to love it.

    Thanks for visiting us and happy TTT!

  20. Ha they are brilliant sounding books. I need to look into a few of those for myself!

    Have a great week!

  21. These are so funny! Thanks for sharing.

  22. Haha! These are some great titles for this topic, and I have to admit that Chuck Tingle has some hilarious book titles.

  23. I love that you collect hilarious book titles! What a great collection to have.

  24. I loved the last title the best, but I do have to say that there are so many great titles on your list… I don’t even know where to start! 😂

  25. These are some truly ridiculous book titles.😂
    I altered the title for my post this week, I couldn’t think of any books with funny titles.

  26. The Jarod Kintz title is brilliant. That’s just how I feel when I pick up some books.

  27. These are great, Lydia. They definitely made me laugh out loud. Being in education all my life, I think my favourite is Surviving Your Stupid Stupid Decision to Go to Grad School by Adam Ruben.

  28. These are all new to me and they are hilarious! LOL!

  29. Brilliant and highly hilarious titles, Lydia.
    My favoutites:
    You Don’t Have to Be Evil to Work Here, But it Helps – That’s often the case.
    This book cover and title have nothing to do with this book – And that is even more often the case.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT this week.

  30. These are hilarious! Thanks for the morning chuckle.

  31. These are all funny. My favorite is How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming!

  32. Lol. These are great! Your post so far is my favorite and my favorite in your list is #4.

  33. These are ALL great! I think #2 is my favorite, although #4 also made me chuckle because I’ve had that exact thought about multiple books I’ve read. LOL.

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!


  34. Oh my gosh, I love this list! I especially love #3. xD Sure sounds like an interesting workplace to me! And I’m not even sure what to make of #8! Thanks for a good laugh.

  35. These are all outrageously funny. I had heard of the Johnny Depp one before but poor Hello Kitty. Thanks for sharing and for visiting my blog last week.

  36. LOL, some of these are indeed HILARIOUS! It’s so funny to work on a topic like this one and see what some authors or their publishers title books. But then sometimes if you’ve read the book, the title makes sense. 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland, Lydia. Appreciate this. Apologies it took this long to visit here.

  37. I love all of these titles, but especially You Don’t Have to Be Evil to Work Here, But it Helps, haha!
