Top 5 Wednesday 

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly post that is hosted by Sam from Thoughts On Tomes and there is also a Goodreads group where you can find more information. This weeks topic is: 

Inaccurate Book Covers

Those books that have nothing to do with the story, or the cover model doesn’t look anything like the actual main character, or it’s a really cheesy cover for a great read! 

I’m putting my own spin on this one and I’ve been Googling the worst book covers of all time for the past hour or so and I found some god awful, but hilarious ones. I must share the top five most horrifying with you my friends. Please don’t think I’ve read any of these because I would never! I also mean no offense to the authors, you may have written a lovely book, but these cover/title combos are just bad.

Any book with penis in the title is guaranteed to make me giggle. Yes, I’m super mature. This is supposedly humorous but the only thing I’m laughing at is that God awful cover. Granted, it was published in 1997 but still…

Umm…well…yeah….this one was clearly published in the 80’s. That’s really all I’ve got. At least it didn’t say gnarly instead of awesome? (Do you see the author of title at the bottom? 😂)

You guys, this is dinosaur erotica. I can’t stop laughing. Because if I don’t laugh I’ll cry thinking about dinosaur erotica!!!

Me too Joel, me too.

Now I’ll never sleep again. You’re welcome.

Do you have any hilariously bad book covers to share? This was highly amusing to me, I would love to see more! I had to stop looking them up, there were so many bad ones. 😳🙈😱

    Speaking as someone who worked for the better part of ten years doing Youth Ministry I wish I could say the title and general vibe of ‘Anyone Can Be Cool…’ was misrepresenting the market of teenage devotionals. But…yikes! They often seem to be a decade behind the style of the kids they are trying to reach too. I’ve found some that are magnificent (and look that way too) but many are cringe-worthy.

    Also, thank you for expanding my mental horizon by teaching me that Dinosaur Erotica is a thing. I don’t know what to feel about life now!!! (Outside, of course, for a lot of laughing.) This was an incredible post :).
