Spotlight: Our Unique List of 15 Weirdest Book Titles!

While surfing for books to read, I encounter different titles on a day-to-day basis. Some titles speak for themselves, some are relevant to the book’s story, some are completely unrelated to the plot, whereas some titles are hilarious and leave you confused about the book itself. One day when I was browsing through the books, I found The Haunted Vagina (the number one entry on this list of weirdest book titles). After having a hearty laugh, I dug further into the depths of the internet and found more books that have just as hilarious and weird titles as they look.

Presenting to you, my curation of the 15 weirdest book titles (according to me!).
