Blog Hopping

I'm giving away a signed copy of Supernaturally by Kiersten White here.

Book Blogger Hop
This week's blog hop question is:

Let’s talk crazy book titles! Highlight one or two (or as many as you like!) titles in your personal collection that have the most interesting titles! If you can’t find any, feel free to find one on the internet!

My library highlighted a few a while back, and one that I ended up reading was The Boy Book: A Study of Habits and Behaviors, Plus Techniques for Taming Them by e. lockhart. Most people just call it The Boy Book, but I think the full title really adds something. This book (series) is hilarious.

Another one that I heard about from a blogging friend is The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender. I don't really like cake, but I wouldn't think to describe it like that!

This week's Follow Friday question is:

Q. How has your reading habits changed since you were a teen? or If you are still a teen what new genres are you in love with currently?

I wasn't much of a reader at all. I really disliked most books I was assigned to read in high school. (remember all those awesome books that came out in the late 90's? Me neither) So I'd say the biggest difference is that I didn't like to read back then, and I do now. 


  1. Happy Follow Friday! I'm a first time follower. I absolutely love your blog background!

    Feel free to follow my blog:

    : )

  2. I stopped reading in high school. It was the extra curricular activities and lack of good YA books.

    Fun post. Is the cake book any good? (no pun intended LOL)

  3. WOW!! Good picks on the crazy title books!! Loves them!

    Happy Friday!!

    Hop on over to the Wastelands ;)

  4. Those are some great titles. I couldn't think of any. I tried and tried, but to no avail. :)

  5. LOL The Boy Book's full title is hilarious!! Nice choice. ;)

    New follower. =D

  6. Nice title choices! E. Lockhart definitely has some weird titles because I picked one of her titles for my BBH too! Feel free to check it out here. New follower as well!

  7. Hi! New follower hopping through. I've seen The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake on shelves and have considered picking it up. See my answers over at Fuzzy.Coffee.Books if ya like!
    Have a great weekend!
    Oh, and stop by and enter my giveaway! It closes at midnight tonight!

  8. Ha! The particular sadness of lemon cake. Brilliant.

  9. Book Love 101, thanks! I'll definitely stop by.

    Jen, I don't know, actually. It's on my TBR. I'll post a review once I read it.

    Greta, thanks. It was hard to come up with answers for this week's question.

    Jenni, I'm with you. It took me a long time.

  10. Bailey, thanks! You have a fun blog.

    Rumana, I wonder if that's just her thing? The series of hers that I read was really funny in a quirky kind of way.

    Courtney, it's the kind of title that just sticks out, huh? I'll be sure to stop by.

    jdfield, it's definitely original! :)

  11. It's really sad that what is meant to encourage kids to read ends up stifling it! Glad that you changed ^_~

    Here's my FF:

    New follower! Happy FF!

  12. Hi there! :D Happy Friday!!!
    I'm a new follower, hehe. This is my Follow Friday. Please feel free to pass by and have a look and, if you like it, follow me back ;)

    Hope you have a great weekend!


  13. I easily came up with five crazy book titles just by taking a fast look at my bookshelf.

    All five come from the same book series. Can you guess which series it is?

    Here’s a hint – The book series is a trilogy in five parts.

    Hop on over to my blog for the answer –

    Howard A. Sherman, Implementor
    Get Inside a Story

  14. That Boy book title makes me think of Zsa Zsa Gabor's book: "How to Get a Man, How to Keep a Man, How to Get Rid of a Man"

    Hilarious, true title, no kidding!

    The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake is about a woman who can taste feelings... or something like that? It sounds interesting. It's on my TBR, but I don't imagine I'll get to it for a long while.

  15. Ah HAHahahahaah! "(remember all those awesome books that came out in the late 90's? Me neither)" SO TRUE! so I read all my mom's classics library and a ton of Dick Francis.
    great Follow Friday answer and love the blog :)

  16. Kathy! I need to start doing the Book Blogger Hop meme. Your book titles are hilarious!! :)

    A surprising number of bloggers are saying that they never read in high school! I'm shocked! lol

    There were some weird books out in the 90s though, so I feel ya on that one!

  17. Great book titles. I wasn't much of a reader in my teens either. Friday Post!

  18. Hi there,
    Stopping by via Parajunkee's Follow Friday. I'm following you.

    Have a great weekend!

  19. See? That's why I'm hesitant about required reading. I think kids and teens should be encouraged to read but making them read specific books...I'm not sure that's a great idea. I'm glad you read now. ;)

  20. Hey! I replied on my blog but just wanted to let you know that my hubsy said you and your husband got married the same day as us! December 21st right?! That's pretty sweet.

  21. Those are great titles.

    I have a cutie on my TBR: The Undomestic Goddess

  22. Love e. lockhart! She writes with such humor:)

    Stopping by as a first time follower!
