24 Odd and Funny Book Titles and Covers

Ooh, don't you want What's Your Poo Telling You? or Fancy Coffins To Make Yourself or Scouts in Bondage? Hey, I own one of the books shown here: Knitting with Dog Hair, subtitled Better a sweater from a dog you know and love than from a sheep you'll never meet. Actually a good book if you are into knitting and have long-haired dogs.

Longmire does Romance Novels

Retitled/"reimagined" typical romance books covers. Yep, give the book a title that matches that cover image!

What a hoot! Thanks for sharing the urls. Some of those covers are really laugh-out-loud disasters, especially with the creative comments.

Luckily, Ellora's Cave does terrific covers. I love every one of my DANCE covers. Thanks, Syneca, Will, Darrell and gang.

I have a copy of the Humanure Handbook on the "Homesteading/Zombie Apocalypse" shelf. It's next to "Pride & Prejudice and Zombies."

I do love the retitled ones. "Lord of the Hissy-Fit" and "The Sheriff of Gay County" are my faves.

I've had good covers. I've had bad covers. I've had boring covers. I've had covers where I went "huh? why is he licking the other's rib cage" before I realized the "head" was a bicep. I've had technicolor and veggiesexuals and weird shifters and a few covers that were simply awesome.

I even got the dreaded "a novel" subtitle once. Because without that, everyone's clearly going to think it's a how-to manual for making your own possessed carnival.

hahahahaha. Thanks for the great laughs.
I feel almost guilty. Those are SOMEONE'S books that they sweated and worked hard to write and get published! Okay, so maybe they didn't and maybe "sweated" was a bad word choice.

I like the "Okay, you're taller than me. Happy now?" one. lol

Should this blog create amazing inspiration for me? I thought up a title for my next erotic work of art: Make my Pussy Purr.

I thought to have a large cat lounging across the cover. What do you all think?
