These oddly specific and hilariously funny book titles are telling you exactly what they are all about – kind of. If you ever thought you couldn’t get published, consider that these books somehow managed it.
I’m devastated to learn that this book is a book of love poems and not an informative how-to guide for pole dancing to gospel hymns. Despite that, this book has received many good reviews.
I was oddly disappointed to discover that this is an ordinary cookbook and not a book for cooking with fecal matter. The Thai author, Khun Saiyuud Diwong, goes by the nickname Poo, hence the title of the book.
Have you ever been haunted by the thought of what to do with your dead cat? No? Weird. Simon Bond thought about it enough to develop 101 ways to use your dead cat.
This sarcastic book has even wittier reviews. You can buy the book or, more importantly, read its reviews.
If your useless cat isn’t dead, you probably still need to feed it. Now, you can unlock the secret of cooking for your feline with this fantastic book.
There must be a hot market for long-titled devotional novels for teens because this book has sold more than 700,000 copies. You can buy the book here, although one review pointed out, “It has no advice for opening lockers!”
From the title and the cover, you would think this is another holy teen novel. Still, this is the story of a 17-year-old girl from Utah who must stand up to her “disapproving mother” to pursue her artistic dreams but also apparently has a crush on her Uncle. Sus5an doesn’t make good decisions.
This book gets creepier and creepier as you look at it. The title, the cover, the review…. I hope no one ever buys this book.
This “artistic photography” book is mostly just a bunch of pictures of abandoned shopping carts – which is probably exactly what you should have expected. Amazon calls it “a must-have for anyone passionate about shopping carts.”
This “unprecedented” book happens when someone decides, “Let’s give cats paint and see what happens.” The ironic wit and professionalism with which the book is written only add to the experience.
Listen, becoming a dictator is hard. There’s a lot to consider. That’s why this book gives you advice and tips on ruling the world, from creating your flag to stopping free speech.
Let’s be clear here: this book is only for the “recently deceased” so that they can learn all about sexy ghost stuff.
You had me at “lesbian horse stories.” This collection of short stories revolving around horse-riding lesbians will leave you wondering – “Will the stables ever be safe again?”
If the title didn’t draw you in, the pictures on the cover certainly did. I’m unsure what you can make with a hammer, some rulers, an orange slice, and the thickest chinstrap beard I have ever seen, but I’m excited.
Not the chicken coop! If it’s not gnomes, it’s fairies.
This book is out of print now, presumably because of this fantastic title, although you can still get your hands on used copies here.
