Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme that is hosted by Crazy for Books, so go check her out. This meme is a great way to discover other book bloggers an learn more about them through each week's question.
This week's prompt is:
Let’s talk crazy book titles! Highlight one or two (or as many as you like!) titles in your personal collection that have the most interesting titles!
The first book that came to mind was Special Topics in Calamity Physics by Marisha Pessl. Despite what the title may suggest, it is most definitely fiction. This book is truly unique in many ways, one of them being that the table of contents is arranged like a class syallabus.
Here are other noteworthy, eye-catching titles that I have read or are on my to-read list:
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman! Adventures of a Curious Character by Richard Feynman
The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and Other Clinical Tales by Oliver Sacks
The Secret Life of Pronouns: What our Words Say about Us by James Pennebaker
The Man Who Loved Only Numbers: The Story of Paul Erdos by Paul Hoffman
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
The Autobiography of My Mother by Jamaica Kincaid (you may have to think for a second before you realize why this is unusual)
Which of these titles sounded the most peculiar to you? Do share some unusual book titles that you know of.
Love and (a book) light,
