The Best Bad Book Titles EVER!

My friend Carrie Mesrobian is getting ready to have her first novel published. With a real publisher and everything. The book is YA and is going to be rad and she’s gonna be famous and all that.

So yesterday, Carrie mentioned that she still doesn’t have a title for said forthcoming novel, which she’s just been calling Book #1.

She didn’t ask for suggestions.

BUT being the good friend and helper that I am, I thought I’d send her a list of possibilities.

I don’t know in detail what her novel’s about, but I didn’t let that stop me.

Here’s my list of suggested titles. Feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments!

I just included this image because I like this bad book title.
