    77 Strange, Funny, and Magnificent Book Titles You’ve Probably Never Heard Of

    From how to cook husbands to frog raising for pleasure and profit.

    “What’s in a name?” mused Shakespeare in Romeo and Juliet (first published in print in 1597 as An Excellent Conceited Tragedie of Romeo and Juliet ). Would he have said the same, one wonders, if he’d been around to hear that F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby was at one point titled Trimalchio in West Egg ; or that for Dracula , Bram Stoker considered The Dead Un-Dead ? There is certainly an art to the great title, as demonstrated by the late English humourist Alan Coren, who when choosing a name for a collection of essays in 1975 noticed that the most popular books in Britain at that time were about cats, golf and Nazis. So he called his book Golfing for Cats and slapped a swastika on the front cover.

    We also learn that care should be taken to avoid tempting an ironic fate. Bill Hillman, the American author of the 2014 guide Fiesta: How to Survive the Bulls of Pamplona , was gored by the bulls of Pamplona that same year—and again the next year. And in the 2017 British national election, the Conservative politician Gavin Barwell, author of How to Win a Marginal Seat , lost his marginal seat.

    The humorous literary award known as the Bookseller/Diagram Prize for Oddest Title of the Year has been running since 1978, with past winners including Oral Sadism and the Vegetarian Personality (1986) by Glenn C. Ellenbogen, The Joy of Waterboiling (2018) by Achse Verlag and The Dirt Hole and its Variations by Charles L. Dobbins (2019). But we can go back centuries earlier to find their ancestors. The following are some of the more curious lurking in the corners of library catalogues.

    When it comes to reading, sometimes we look for that right balance of serious (because there are issues that need to be treated so) and funny. Rarely am I ever in the mood for straight silly because I like that balance of relatable and yet humorous. However sometimes, even if the book isn’t solely that, there are hilarious and funny book titles that go make us giggle. As a way of giving them a little shout out, today that is our workable subject.


    Like usual my task is to always look at the books that are already on my shelf rather than go outside of this. That said, honestly, I’m not all that sure that I own many funny book titles. But we’ll see and hope for the best. Let’s take a look.


    Pride, prejudice and zombies , jane austen + seth grahame-smith.

    I mean, this is kind of a given. The idea of pairing Jane Austen with zombies? Just way too funny. Goodreads 


    This one is super cute and follows a girl reliving her life in a kind of Groundhog Day type premise. Goodreads


    Honestly, this series is REALLY good. Especially if you like British TV shows like Grantchester (a little lighter in these books) or something like ITV’s Marple . That said, I have to admit, a title like this does kind of make you go, wait, what!? Goodreads

    funny book review titles


    Kind of cheating adding a book with essentially the same rule as one of the earlier titles on this list but pairing a Jane Austen title with an unusual thing (this time because the book is set in the south) is always a fun laugh. Goodreads


    I mean this one also may not be outright funny, but I just don’t think I have that many outrageous book titles on my shelf. Regardless, it’s kind of fun, nonetheless and maybe is funnier if you read the novel. Goodreads


    If you just see this title and don’t know anything about it, it can read kind of funny. Of course, the plot is about a group of teens trying to solve murder so the title in that way makes sense. Goodreads


    Not all that humorous of a title, but it is cute although I, sadly, didn’t love the story inside. Goodreads

    funny book review titles


    Despite the title that seems to be a little funny, these mysteries are actually super fun! There are three novels and then some novella stories that act as kind of the “in between” of the novels. Fun characters, too! Goodreads


    Not sure how this book reads (more serious or funny), but the title is cute if nothing else. Goodreads


    Read this one quite a while ago, and honestly, it wasn’t what I was expecting. But then the title is also cute and funny in its own way. Goodreads

    Have you read any of these? Would you? Which books have the funniest titles you’ve seen? What kind of “funny” novel do you prefer? Let’s meet up and chat in the comments!

    Thanks, as always, for being here. I’m grateful you took the time. Going to try and visit your web spaces sooner rather than later, but if I fail (and I do!), just know I’m glad you stopped by. Thank you.



    Thank you for visiting; please come back soon!

    Linking up with That Artsy Reader Girl August 9:  Hilarious Book Titles

    About Rissi JC

    amateur graphic designer. confirmed bookaholic. bubbl’r enthusiast. critical thinker. miswesterner. social media coordinator. writer.


    I like A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder. And always nice to see Julianna Deering show up :)

    YES! Always enjoyed Julianna’s books. Thanks for the visit, Greg.

    The titles all sounded like they are sarcastic. Ha! I tweaked my TTT list this week

    Sometimes sarcasm is called for. :) Thanks for visiting, Anne.

    Finding Mr. Better than you sounds hilarious! I’ve always enjoyed the title for A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, but I haven’t read it yet.

    Great list you have today!

    I like Holly’s book title too. Just seemed a little fitting for today because it’s like a “how to” guide only it’d be one I’d never expect to find on a bookshelf! :) As always thanks for visiting, Mareli.

    My husband read Pride Prejudice and Zombies when it came out and enjoyed it. He said it was a ridiculous idea that worked.

    Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!

    For sure ridiculous, but he’s right. It does work. Surprisingly, lots of it is Austen’s own language and writing too (or that was my understanding) which is cool. :) Thanks for visiting, Pam!

    Sunny Song Will Never Be Famous sounds amusing!

    Right? I agree. So fun. :) Thanks for visiting, Lydia.

    You Deserve Each Other is such a great title and perfect for the story!

    For. Sure. Not quite as funny if someone hasn’t read it, but it WORKS. :) Thanks so much for visiting, Angela. Appreciate this.

    I definitely thought A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder was going to be more about how to commit murders than solve them when I first saw the title. Great book though!

    I love a good mystery so I’m all kinds of curious about Holly’s book. Glad it’s good – and thanks for stopping by, Jo. :)

    Pride, Prejudice, and Cheese Grits sounds fun! Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

    If you read it, I hope you enjoy! All the Southern feels but make it Jane Austen. :) Thanks for visiting.

    A great list! So many books I want to read!

    Have a great week!

    Emily @ Budget Tales Book Blog My post:

    Fun! Hope if you read some of them you enjoy, Emily – and as always, thank you for visiting.

    Great list. These titles are indeed funny, especially Finding Mr Better than you 😂 Have a great week☀️

    Right? That one made me giggle. :) Thanks for visiting, Rae.

    These made me chuckle. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week!

    Thanks for reading, Cindy!

    OH my… this made me realize I still haven’t read Sunny Song despite being really excited for it way back when. xD I included your post in mine this week, I hope you don’t mind!

    Aw, thanks, Jennifer! That’s super kind of you. Off to read your post, too! :)

    love these titles!

    15 Funny Cookbooks, From the Silly to the Macabre

    ' src=

    Mary Kay McBrayer

    Mary Kay is a belly-dancer, horror enthusiast, sideshow lover, prose writer, Christian, and literature professor from south of Atlanta. Her true crime novel, America’s First Female Serial Killer: Jane Toppan and the Making of a Monster is available for pre-order, and you can hear her analysis (and jokes) about scary movies on the podcast she co-founded, Everything Trying to Kill You. She can be reached at [email protected] .

    I’m a firm believer that as many elements go into a good joke as go into a good recipe… sometimes a lot, sometimes a few, but good is good. And there are many ways to be good at both. Check out Chrissy Teigen over here:

    I fucking haaaaaate testing a new recipe for the book/site and knowing halfway through I'm gonna have to do it all over again. having to finish a failure to figure out its faults kjshfoiahyeforeqwrfnlaif — chrissy teigen (@chrissyteigen) March 15, 2019

    I can relate. Most people can. But not everyone can articulate it in a way that makes their reader both sympathize AND laugh aloud. In this post, I’ve compiled 15 funny cookbooks. They range in content from straightforward recipes with puns as titles, to themed books about your favorite TV shows, to desserts so intense and artful that you have to stare at them before you can eat them. For example, this architecturally sound pumpkin pie by the indomitable Christine McConnell:

The pastry dome disintegrated the first three times… I cried, took a nap and tried again 😭😴😊 A post shared by Christine McConnell (@christinehmcconnell) on Nov 21, 2018 at 8:53am PST

    In case you’re wondering what makes ME qualified to say whether a cookbook is funny, I present you with a piece of situational humor: THIS GUACAMOLE RECIPE BY BORIS KARLOFF .


    Get your laugh on with these 15 funny cookbooks. cookbooks | humor | book lists | cooking humor | funny books | funny cookbooks

    So with no further ado, here they are, your 15 funny cookbooks. You can thank me later. In the form of other funny cookbooks.


    I bought this book for the jokes, because I loved Amy Sedaris, but it is, for real, the book that made me want to learn to cook. It’s part etiquette, part cookbook, part jokes. For example, she details what appropriate hostess gifts are, and why you shouldn’t bring a dish to a dinner party unless it’s a potluck. She also has the best recipe for oatmeal cookies—and I know what you’re thinking, but YES, OATMEAL—and she includes wisdom in her jokes, like “Nobody wants to be the first to crack the liquor bottles at a funeral,” and what to prepare for the unwanted guest.

    It’s also the inspiration for the TV show,  At Home with Amy Sedaris  on TruTV, so if you like the book, you’ll love the show.

    2. Cravings: Hungry for More by Chrissy Teigen

    We all know and love Chrissy Teigen already, but if you are not familiar with her cookbook  Cravings , the time has come, because now there is a second! She’s hilarious, and her recipes are awesome. They detail everything from her fried chicken favorites to her mom’s Thai classics.

    3. hausmagick: Transform your Home with Witchcraft by Erica Feldmann

    Hausmagick  by Erica Feldmann is not EXACTLY funny, and this is not EXACTLY a cookbook, either, but I still think it merits being on the list. Here’s why: Erica Feldmann runs an online lifestyle brand (and a store in Salem, MA) , so she includes cooking (check out that FULL MOON CAKE recipe!). Her knowledge (and spells) extends out of the kitchen and into the rest of a witch’s house and life.


    If you’re unfamiliar with Christine McConnell, I’m so excited to be the one to tell you about her and her work. This gorgeous woman makes scary desserts (in addition to her own gowns and Halloween house decorations!), and a lot of their recipes are located right here in her book  Deceptive Desserts.  What I like about this book is that the baking part is easy: the exciting part is the decoration. Who doesn’t want their basic, yellow bridal shower cake to take the literal form of BRIDEZILLA?!

    And if you love her book, you should absolutely watch her show on Netflix, The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell ,  which is a macabre amalgam of The Addams Family and a baking show if hosted in the Henson studio.

    5.  Rapper’s Delight: The Hip Hop cookbook  by Joseph Inniss

    The Hip Hop Cookbook  Rapper’s Delight  compiled by Joseph Inniss includes all your favorite rappers’ dishes and the recipes for them. And they’re all accompanied by a piece of artwork developed just for that recipe! Although this isn’t exactly a humorous cookbook, the theme is pretty awesome! It’s the perfect gift for a rap fan.

    6. From Crook to Cook by Snoop Dogg

    When Snoop Dogg’s episode on Martha Stewart’s cooking show was a wild success, he wrote  From Crook to Cook,  which lists 50 of Snoop’s favorite recipes, from soul food classics to filet mignon. And of course, there are a lot of munchies in here, too.

    7. The Odd Bits: How to Cook the Rest of the Animal by Jennifer McLagan

    The Odd Bits  by Jennifer McLagan is not exactly a “joke cookbook,” but it IS interesting, and deserves mentioning if only for its wackiness. This book shows how to cook the whole animal, and it’s meant for the adventurous cook and the adventurous eater. Want to know how to prepare lamb neck? What about braised heart, Moroccan style? This book has it all—and mostly recipes you’ve never thought to think about.

    8. The Bob’s Burgers Burger Book: Real Recipes for Joke Burgers by Loren Bouchard

    Fans of  Bob’s Burgers  will love  The Bob’s Burgers Burger Book  by Loren Bouchard. It’s a great gag gift for anyone who likes to snack while they watch cartoons made for adults. (I am winking right now.)

    9. The Snacking dead: A Parody in a cookbook by D.B. Walker

    The Snacking Dead  by D.B. Walker are meant for any fan of  The Walking Dead.  Most of the recipes are practical hors d’oeuvre for every-day consumption, but with fun back stories and snazzy puns as recipe titles.

    10. Tequila Mockingbird: Cocktails with a Literary Twist by Tim Federle

    Tequila Mockingbird  and  Gone with the Gin   are the perfect funny cookbooks to buy for a friend who either loves literature or loves classic Hollywood, respectively. Although they don’t detail food, these cocktail how-to books are both funny and informative!

    11. The Nightmare before dinner by Zach Neil

    The Nightmare Before Dinner  by Zach Neil was one of the funny cookbooks recommended to me by a fellow lover of creepy things. It might not be “funny,” per se, if you don’t have a distinctly macabre sense of humor, but the recipes in this cookbook come directly from the Halloween-themed restaurant, Beetle House . They include everything from Sweeney Beef to Alice’s Cup of Tea. I am seriously so excited about this cookbook… and I’m so weird that I definitely won’t wait till Halloween to try out all these goodies.

    12. Roald Dahl’s Revolting Recipes

    While discussing  Matilda  at a wedding reception this past weekend, I realized and shouted aloud, “Man, Roald Dahl HATES kids, am I right?” and this book,  Roald Dahl’s Revolting Recipes  proves me right. Sure, Bruce got to eat chocolate cake, but he had to eat THE WHOLE THING, and his mom’s was better! For more disgustingly delicious recipes, you need this book… like, who can bear life without knowing how to bake Stink Bug Eggs?

    13.  The Lucretia Borgia Cookbook: Favorite Recipes of Infamous People by Dorothy Blinder

    You think this murderino thing is a new trend? Oh no no no: people have been obsessed with criminals since law existed! The Lucretia Borgia Cookbook  by Dorothy Blinder is a perfect gag gift for the true-crime obsessed person in your life because it gives the favorite recipes of infamous people (VERY INFAMOUS, as in Grigori Rasputin, John Dillinger, and Bonnie Parker level infamous!), as the subtitle says, but it also tells its reader how to make them for themselves!

    14. Cookin’ with Coolio by Coolio

    You probably know Coolio from his hit, “Gangsta’s Paradise,” but did you know about his cookbook,  Cookin’ with Coolio: 5 Star Meals for a 1 Star Price ? After rap, cooking is Coolio’s best trade. These inexpensive recipes are twists on soul food favorites, including “Blasian” and “Ghettalian” dishes that won’t break the bank.

    15. The New InterCourses : An Aphrodisiac Cookbook by Martha Hopkins

    The New Intercourses  by Martha Hopkins could serve as both a gag gift AND a really useful present. Its table of contents lists sensual recipes by type (like “coffee,” “chocolate,” and “oysters,” and the book includes an appendix for easy-access, and photographs of its recipes on the human body. You read me right. Photographs of its recipes ON the human body.

    Ten Hilariously Funny Feline Book Titles

    Posted August 9, 2022 by elzaread in Top Ten Tuesday / 61 Comments

    funny book review titles

    Geetings you guys! Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl . Today’s prompt is bound to be nothing but fun.  Hilarious Book Titles.  Just like Jana, life is a bit busy here with us, so we almost skipped this week. Luckily, there is nothing wrong with our innovation abilities and as a cat, I am also extra resourceful.

    In February 2021, we had a prompt –  Titles that made me laugh out loud. Ha. Nothing wrong with republishing. In fact, it’s being encouraged on numerous platforms. So that’s exactly what we’ll do today. With a tweak or two. If you’ve read and actually remember (I’m not that good a writer, so what’s the chances) our post from last year, a recap is always good. If you haven’t read it, have fun!

    funny book review titles

    In case you might think I made some of these titles up, I will add links to all the titles and you can see for yourself that my innovation only goes that far.

    Seeing that I belong to the feline of the species myself, I can answer one or two questions on these for you:

    • Cats paint because we can . We don’t do it often though, as it messes with our normally perfect hair days.
    • Yes, God does speak through cats every now and again.
    • You won’t be able to tell if your cat plots to kill you. You might just wake up one morning in heaven with no clue how you got there. 
    • We love crafting with you!
    • Yes, we can and we will pee on just about everything. Rock, Paper, Scissors are not excluded.
    • Not sorry that I barfed on your bed. If you gave me the attention I asked for in the first place, this wouldn’t have happened.

    funny book review titles

    Any other laugh out loud feline titles I’ve missed? Any new titles out recently that might fit? Have a wonderful Tuesday and remember to share the books that have made you laugh out loud with us.

    I have the Crafting with Cat Hair book in both a physical copy and an ebook. 😅

    ' src=

    OMG, love that you focused on cat-related titles! These are all HILARIOUS and I love that you answered the questions too 😉

    ' src=

    LOL, some of these for sure make you laugh! So funny to see what authors title (or sometimes a publisher) their books. 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing and for visiting Finding Wonderland on this week. Apologies for the delay in visiting here.

    ' src=

    Love all the kitty titles you’ve picked this week. I will borrow many of these for my cats and books page, Keli Cat’s Book Corner.

    ' src=

    Hi there Mallika!

    Glad you’ve enjoyed our post and you are most welcome to use any of our books on your page!

    Have a good week ahead.

    ' src=

    Haha, these really are hilarious!

    Thank you Suzanne!

    ' src=

    Of course you narrowed the topic down to cat books! LOL. These are all hilarious. I loved I could pee on this: And other poems by cats by Francesco Marciuliano the best!! Such a great post, Elza

    Thanks Wendy!!

    It was first posted over a year ago, so all credit to my creativity of way back then…

    ' src=

    We’ve read a few of these and honestly, it’s because of the titles lol! Have a wonderful week!

    Hi there Sara!

    I would probably also pick one of these up just for the titles.

    Thanks for the visit and sorry for the late reply!

    ' src=

    Oh my goodness, this IS hilarious! I don’t have pets, but I am greatly amused by cats 🙂

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!


    If you are amused by cats, you should hang around here. Elza always comes up with some or other crazy and funny antics.

    Thanks for visiting us!

    ' src=

    Okay – you may win the themed hilarious title trophy! You’re one smart cat, you are! I bet you give your mom fits….. Thanks for stopping my totally boring list.

    Why thank you Terry!!

    It was a repost, so credit due to a year back’s creativity!

    ' src=

    I could pee on this! hahaha!! Good one!

    That title really is hilarious and I think the content of the book might be equally funny.

    ' src=

    These are funny titles for sure! And I wouldn’t expect anything other than cats to be involved!

    Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!

    As much as I can involve cats, I’ll do just that.

    Thanks for popping in!

    ' src=

    I’ve read I Could Pee On This and How To Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting To Kill You, so I can confirm that they are real books. 😉 This is a great list!

    I remember when I first did this post, it took me hours to get all the titles, but the aim was to only use “real” books. Not that I’ve read any of these!! Glad you read at least two and can validate the probability…

    ' src=

    These a such great titles! I’ve heard of a few of them, but not all of them. I’m definitely going to have to look into some of them. 😀

    I haven’t read any of these, but they were all good for a laugh!

    ' src=

    Honestly there are so many good titles here I don’t know which one to choose 😂 They also all perfectly fit the kitty personality, and it’s hilarious!

    Glad you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!

    ' src=

    Love the feline theme and there are some laugh out loud titles in that list! 🙂

    Thanks Meezan!

    Glad you enjoyed it.

    ' src=

    Haha!! Those are all very funny! I love that they are cat-related too!

    Thanks for visiting my TTT!

    Thanks Jessica!

    If possible, I try to do as many cat related posts as I can….

    ' src=

    Oh this had me laughing! I think the safe answer is that your cat is always plotting to kill you but I’d be curious about what the book had to say!

    Hi Katherine!

    I loved doing this post and it made me laugh out loud myself.

    I don’t think Elza plans on killing me, put Anna might have to watch the corners…

    ' src=

    How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You is a hilarious collection of comics! If you read it, you’ll learn that some cats see their owners as “Giant Hairless Gorilla Pig Slaves”…

    Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday list!

    Hi Lectrice!

    Thanks for letting me know that How to tell if your cat is plotting to kill you, is a comic. I’ve hardly read any comics, but the kids at school love it.

    Thanks for visiting us, we appreciate it so much.

    ' src=

    Great list. These books and book titles are equally cute and funny. Have a great week☀️

    Thank you Rae!

    I hope you will enjoy the rest of your week.

    ' src=

    Oh this did make me laugh out loud! I did not read this post last year, I WOULD have remembered, LOL!!!!

    Glad it made you laugh and I will probably use this one again if the opportunity arises. A good laugh is always good for the soul.

    Enjoy the rest of your week Cindy!

    ' src=

    They are all brilliant! I am glad that you found time to get this list together.

    Have a great week!

    Emily @ Budget Tales Book Blog

    Hi there Emily!

    This was the first time that I re-posted, but I am glad I did as I also love this post and find it hilarious. A good laugh is good for everyone!

    ' src=

    Okay so these made me laugh. Mission accomplished! I can see God speaking through cats (I’m sure He has a sense of humor). And the mushrooms one cracked me up too.

    Some of those titles… oh my lol

    The Good Lord sure does have a sense of humor indeed, but I’m grateful for that.

    Glad this made you laugh Greg and I hope the rest of your week will be fine. Almost weekend….

    ' src=

    Ooh, cat themed! What a fun idea.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

    Thank you Astilbe!

    Cats rule as always…!

    ' src=

    Some hilarious titles here!

    They are good for a laugh hey?

    ' src=

    Yeah, there’s definitely nothing wrong with republishing an old post, especially when you’re upfront about it. 🙂 I hope life calms down for you soon!

    Hi there Lydia!

    The catch is to remember your posts!! Thanks for the encouragement and yes, life will get better!

    ' src=

    Very funny!

    Thanks Nicki!

    And for the stopping by.

    ' src=

    Oh my goodness, thanks for the laugh this morning. These were priceless. 🙂

    Pleasure Tanya!

    We aim to entertain for sure.

    ' src=

    These are very funny titles! I’m glad you could answer some of these questions too! 😹

    Thanks Jodie!

    These titles are good for a laugh for sure!

    ' src=

    You made my day LOL with those crazy titles. I especially liked How To Talk Your Cat about Gun Safety and How to Tell if Your Cat is Plotting to Kill You – never had to worry about that one.

    I was so glad I got the opportunity to use these titles again. Because they are hilarious!!! I think Elza rather wants to kill the little mutt, she still loves me. But the eldest cat…. She will easily kill me at the moment!

    Thanks for the visit and we are glad we could make you smile.

    ' src=

    Elza, you did well! I always love to leave a blog post laughing, and that’s what I’m doing right now.

    Yea Debbie!

    That is what we aim to achieve! Glad you stopped by and we made you laugh.

    ' src=

    So cute that you chose feline titles. Of course. 😉 And some really, really hilarious among them. I would want to know if my cat is plotting to kill me, so I guess that book must be very helpful. LOL

    I had done this topic twice before, so my TTT this week is a little off though still goes with the idea. And there are links to my old posts.

    Hi there Marianne!

    I’m very glad I got to share these again, they were very funny for me too.

    Will quickly go and take a look at yours as well. Thanks for visiting!

    But of course, I always enjoy your posts.

    Aaah that’s so nice of you Marianne!
