A few days ago I logged on to Twitter to find a fun hashtag going around. So popular was it that even some publishers were getting in on the action, adding their own ideas to the mix. The hashtag in question was #ChangeAWordRuinABook.

Many of you may have already seen this hashtag and even taken part, but for those of you who don’t know what it is, the idea is to change one word in a book title to give it a different meaning. Some of the results were hilarious and I couldn’t help but come up with a few of my own too. So today, I bring you a fun post, filled with some silly book titles.

#ChangeAWordRuinABook titles by me

These are some of the titles I could think of. Although others may have had the same ideas, these all came from my own head, a few of which I shared on Twitter, the rest kept appearing in my head for the last few days:
