Top Five Books I Bought Because of Their Titles:
No Matter How Much You Promise to Cook and Pay the Rent You Blew It Cauze Bill Bailey Ain't Never Coming Home Again: A Symphonic Novel by Edgardo Vega Yunque (I saw this book at my favorite used bookstore and I couldn't resist buying it. I've never seen a book with a title this long. I still haven't read the book yet, even though I bought it years ago when I was still in high school.)
The Stupidest Angel: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror by Christopher Moore (I read this right away when I got it in the mail, and it did not disappoint. It's freakin' HILARIOUS!)
The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test by Tom Wolfe (The cover is pretty awesome too. I'm honestly not sure if I bought it more for the title or for the cover. It might be a tie.)
The Time It Snowed in Puerto Rico by Sarah McCoy (Technically, I didn't actually buy this book but won it in the first-reads giveaways on Goodreads, but I'd say that 70% of the reason I entered to win was because of the title. It turned out to be one of my favorite Goodreads wins, though that may have had something to do with the fact that the author also sent a box of Puerto Rican goodies along with the book :D )
Sexing the Cherry by Jeanette Winterson (Alright, I didn't buy this book either-I checked it out from the library-but how could you not be curious enough to pick up this book after reading the title?)
