  1. When I saw this topic, I just knew it would be perfect for you! You're Lonely When You're Dead is my favorite!

  2. These are fantastic and it's hard to pick a favorite. The Case of the Naked Diver may be my favorite title but it was a close call and all the covers are amazingly ridiculous!

  5. Interestingly, most of these strange titles are detective stories, I believe.

  13. This was a fun topic! I definitely feel like I had an odd sense of humor when choosing some of my titles. I just remembering chuckling as I discovered said title and added it to my list. I think I read most of mine, just a few that are still in the TBR pile!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  22. I see a theme here - ladies in peril. I guess in those days, most covers features ladies even if the main character is man.

    Have a lovely day.
