Books With Uniquely Interesting Titles – Part 1

Maybe we’re all sick and tired of seeing lists here at Down the Rabbit Hole (you’d let me know if this is the case, right??), but this was genuinely a thought I had that wouldn’t go away.

I used to dabble in fiction writing a little bit on the side. And by used to, I mean, even as recent as a year ago. One thing I always struggled with was choosing the title. You want it to fit with what the piece is about, but also be interesting enough that it’s not going to be confused with that other work that is more memorable than yours.

I feel like I’ve seen such a wide breadth of titles in published works over the years. Some titles I’ve come across were fascinating and bold. Others…well, they aren’t necessarily my cup of tea at least.

So in this latest series I thought I’d share with you to spark discussion and fun, I wanted to collate some titles I personally thought were unique but also interesting. Whether that be due to its wittiness, puns, lyrical prose or how well it fit into the story, the reason can vary but the outcome still created something wonderful and memorable.

I’ll only be sharing the title and covers with you so the focus remains on the title, but each cover will be linked to Goodreads if you’re interested in picking up any of these.
