They say you can’t judge a book by its cover. But what about its title, especially when the title is as weird as these are?
The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat. Every time I see this, I wonder how it’s possible. But Oliver Sacks explains how for someone, this did happen, and he goes into other strange mental afflictions. As a lover of psychology, I can always trust him for an interesting true story.
Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging. I read it ages ago, yet the title still catches my eye. The first in a series of equally amusingly titled teen books, it follows teenager Georgia in her exploits trying to woo the local “Sex-God”.
Phallacy: Life Lessons From the Animal Penis. Discussing not just biology, but also the psychology of masculinity and impulsivity, this book is the newest addition to my personal to-read list.
The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove. You know when people are partying so hard, it wakes up the neighbors? Well, in this book, that's exactly what happens—except the neighbor is a sea monster.
