For me, the title of a book is important. After all, it’s what makes me pick up a bookin the first place. The title must strike me and make me wonder about the story between the covers. Is it a serious romance? Or one with a touch of humor? Will it scare me or make me laugh? Or make me cry?
Some titles don’t give a hint of what the story is about. The Notebook, for one. Paint the Wind, for another. I had no idea what either book was about until the title struck me and I picked them up for closer inspection (both made me cry, by the way).
I love these titles from Cheyenne McCray: Zombies Sold Separately, Vampires Dead Ahead, and Demons Not Included. Aren’t these fabulous? What do they conjure up in your mind?
What about Lady Isabella’s Scandalous Marriage by Jennifer Ashley? Doesn’t that sound like a fun story to read? You know there’s going to be humor involved. And romance.
What titles do you find fun? Curious? Scary? Romantic?
