Hi5: For The Love Of The Title

Hi5 is a weekly meme hosted by Cara @Chasing Words, Anne @Potter, Percy and Nomes @inkcrush.

Topic of the moment: Five Book Titles You Are Crushing On 

Book titles are so, so cool. At par (or even higher) with gorgeous covers that make you lust for the book. And there are some extremely cool book titles out there in this wide, wide world, so choosing five -only five!- made me pull my hair out. I mean, I love books and book covers and titles and argh, everything that has anything to do with books! So, beyond the top five, I'm including other runners-up titles. (Dear awesome book titles, I heart you to death.)

1.The Sky Always Hears Me And The Hills Don't Mind: The book title CALLS out to me. This one's such a winner!

2. Feeling Sorry For Celia: Unique. Original. And who the heck is Celia?

3. Knocked Out By My Nunga Nungas: All the Georgia Nicholson books have ROTFLMAO titles. I didn't know which to choose and which ones to leave out. Sample these: ..And That's When It Fell Off In My Hand, ..Then He Ate My Boy Entrancers, Luuurve Is A Many Trousered Thing..etc

4. How I Spent My Last Night On Earth: I'm all ears.

5. My Invented Life: Invented life? *iz curious* *very*

Runners-Up Confetti Goes To...

--> How I Live Now ~ Meg Rosoff
--> God Is In The Pancakes ~ Robin Epstein
--> Beauty Shop For Rent ~ Laura Bowers
--> Rain Is Not My Indian Name ~ Cynthia Leitich Smith
--> Dancing Naked ~ Shelley Hrdlitschka
--> Far From Xanadu ~ Julie Anne Peters
--> Eva Underground ~ Dandi Daley Mackall
--> Every Time A Rainbow Dies ~ Rita-Williams Garcia
--> The Sky Is Everywhere ~ Jandy Nelson
--> Last Dance On Holladay Street ~ Elisa Carbone
-->Thou Shalt Not Dump The Skater Dude (And Other Commandments I Have Broken) ~ Rosemary Graham
--> Waiting To Disappear ~ April Young Fritz 

Basically I've gone against the whole purpose of this post and named seventeen book titles as opposed to the original five, but tell me which is your favourite book title ever? Like any on the list?

My Invented Life is so much love, but what the hell is up with that cover?! So...odd.

Thou Shalt Not Dump The Skater Dude (And Other Commandments I Have Broken) is also made of so much win! I love it so. (:

Oh wow I have no idea what my favorite book title is. Maybe the Body Finder??? That's really alluring and creepy.

Nice post!

Tracy ~ Louise Rennison is a LOL wordsmith of sorts! :D

Bailey ~ *smacks head* That should've made it to the list. I love the title, too.

Tracy said...

Haha, I love all of them! I think titles are the hardest to do for your own story! How do you sum everything up in a couple of words? But good titles are priceless.

Bee said...

Tracy! You are so right. I struggle most with titles. I have no idea how to sum it all up :O
