The Fresh Meat review of Liz Carlyle’s latest, The Bride Wore Scarlet, notes that the heroine isn’t a bride until the epilogue, and she doesn’t wear red.
Therefore, the entire title is a fail.
Which leads us to ask: What are the best books with the worst titles you’ve read? Misleading, banal, or just ludicrous?
We found one such list from HowStuffWorks of “Unusual Book Titles;” here are some of the best:
Scouts in Bondage by Michael Bell
Be Bold with Bananas by Crescent Books
Fancy Coffins to Make Yourself by Dale L. Power
101 Super Uses for Tampon Applicators by Lori Katz and
How to Make Love While Conscious by Guy Kettelhack
How to Read a Book by Mortimer J. Adler and Charles Van Doren
What’s your pick for worst title?
