Every now and then a book comes along with a title that’s. . . different.
Instead of something simplistic that best sums up the content for readers, the author instead chooses to veer off the beaten path with something humorous. Below we’ve listed some of our favorite examples. Have a look!
My Ideal Boyfriend is a Croissant by Laura Dockrill
Who needs love when you have food?

Who wouldn’t want to check out a book with this title?! We need to find out what the author is talking about so we can best formulate our defense plans!
The Manly Art of Knitting by Dave Fougner
Knitting has been around for centuries and has been unfairly designated a women’s activity. Ew. There’s a lot of enjoyment to be found in it for everyone, and Dave Fougner has set out to break down stereotypes and show just how universal knitting really is. Break out those needles, peeps!

Those pesky squirrels have been snatching food from our birdfeeders forever, but now, finally, we have a way to fight back! The cover art for this book, featuring a squirrel with a top hat and evil mustache, is also perfectly hilarious.
All My Friends Are Dead by Avery Monsen
This dark comedy is everything you could want it to be. The title paired with the cover image of a green dinosaur with an oh-my-god stare is iconic and hysterical.

Well, this title is certainly unique! Mr. Frumkes has a different way of trying to pique a potential reader’s curiosity.
Go the F*** to Sleep by Adam Mansbach
This bedtime story for adults is perfect in every possible way. We also can’t get enough of Samuel L. Jackson’s reading of it.
Everything I Know About Women I Learned from My Tractor by Roger Welsch
Hmm, that’s certainly a title we haven’t heard before. Sounds like a hit country song in the making!
