Better Book Titles

If you haven't heard of the blog Better Book Titles, let me share a few of their gems with you and maybe you'll feel so inclined to check out their totally rad collection.  They've got everything from kid's books:

Oh the Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst


Curious George by H.A. Rey

to the classics we read in highschool...

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

And here are some random funny ones I just loved...

As You Like It by William Shakespeare (also this works for 12th Night and several others lol)

Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Life by Keith Richards

James and the Giant Peach by Rauld Daul 
(slightly edited for The Book Buff :)

Here is the link to the blog Better Book Titles: http://betterbooktitles.com/  Enjoy!

P.S. a tiny disclaimer, the blog isn't as family friendly as mine, there is some strong language and sexual content in some of the titles

Hah! Those are hilarious! Especially the James and the Giant Peach one.

I wish someone gave me Oh The Places You'll Go when I graduated. Thanks for sharing!

Sarah Billington said...

AWESOME. Excellent stuff. Thanks for sharing them. :)

Awesome and spot-on. I was given Oh The Places You'll Go by one of my teachers when I graduated. Oh, you also forgot. It's OK if your boyfriend is a controlling stalker, as long as he's a sparkly vampire

Kate the Book Buff said...

@reading rachel-isnt that how all of the paranormal romances are? uber controlling but magical due to their being a vampire, werewolf,fey, etc. I have to say, I love reading them, purely for escapism, but they are so silly sometimes :)

Oh this has me laughing right off my armchair. Thanks for sharing!

By the way, it is OK if a giant fruit kills your beeyotches aunts.
