Top Ten Tuesday – Books I’ve Read That Originally Caught My Attention Because of Their Unusual Titles

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is Extraordinary Book Titles.  I wasn’t exactly sure what was meant by extraordinary so I decided to tweak the topic a little to cover books I’ve read whose unusual book were what originally caught my attention.  Some of them I’m not convinced I would have read if their titles hadn’t jumped out at me.  As soon as I saw these, I immediately wondered what in the world they could possibly be about.
