Top Ten Tuesday – Cozy Mystery Titles That Made Me Chuckle

 

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 Funny Book Titles.  This was surprisingly challenging, I guess because we all don’t think the same things are funny.  That said, I always love a good pun or a clever play on words when it comes to well known titles like Game of Thrones or The Fault in Our Stars so I decided to share some cozy mystery titles that I thought were pretty amusing.

Question:  What’s your idea of a funny book title?  Do you enjoy puns or do they make you roll your eyes?

    These are great! I often see these quirky titles listed on the tv guide. Ha. You know they are all adapted from these cute, cozy mysteries. Nice share, Suzanne. Hope you’re doing well. I’ve been off the grid this month 😛
