The World of Weird and Wonderful Book Titles

It can’t be denied that the title of a book is the very first thing that lures a reader in. A title can be anything from a simple one-worder to a small sentence, but it must have one vital quality and that is obviously to hook and compell a potential reader; to urge them to read on. There are so many weird, wonderful, beautiful or scary titles out there, it was quite difficult to decide on a selective and reasonable number. I have spent a pleasant afternoon putting together this list, which I hope you enjoy. All of the books are definitely worth reading and their titles are definitely worth mentioning. This list covers a massive variety of genres – each and everyone is unique in it’s own right. There are a couple which I haven’t read, but most of them (especially the classics) I have read over and over. Anyway – here we are:

* Unhooking the Moon – Gregory Hughs
* Gangsta Granny – David Walliams
* 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea – Jules Verne
* Pet Sematary – Stephen King
* A Murder Is Announced – Agatha Christie
* The Ocean At the End of the Lane – Neil Gaiman
* A Tale of Two Cities – Charles Dickens
* Lullabies for Criminals – Heather O’Neil
* Murder Most Unladylike – Robin Stevens
* The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe – C.S.Lewis
* Mr Nobody’s Eyes – Michael Morpurgo
* Commotion In the Ocean – Giles Andreae
* I’ll Give You the Sun – Jandy Nelson
* The Fault In Our Stars – John Green
