Unique Book Titles

Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is Unique Book Titles. This should be interesting. I feel like we tend to grow used to titles. A title that is extremely unique becomes run of the mill after everyone has discussed it for 6 months. So I have to look at my lists of books with fresh eyes.

The first one I thought of is The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon. This book is narrated by Christopher, a teenager with autism.

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick - I haven't read this, but it's title is certainly different.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams - This whole book is unique.

The Hollow Chocolate Bunnies of the Apocalypse by Robert Rankin - Another one I haven't read, but that title!

The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler - This author has a whole YA series with hilarious titles like this one.

I Still Miss My Man, But My Aim is Getting Better by Sarah Shankman - Hilarious! I don't know about the book, but the title gets my attention.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer - I think I've read this 3 times. It's very cozy for being about a difficult topic. But the title is definitely a mouthful.

When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops by George Carlin - The cover has a picture of George Carlin at a table reminiscent of the Last Supper table.

The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test by Tom Wolfe - Now, I am not a huge fan of Mr. Wolfe. But I have to admit this title is catchy.

Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Jesus' Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore - The title is hilarious, and the book follows suit.

What books would you add to this list of unique titles?
