1. You'll Never Nanny In This Town Again: The True Adventures of A Hollywood Nanny
Oh, I quite like this book. It's decades old, but still a great "insider" look at the lives (and families) of the rich and famous, with a particular focus on the ways "the help" is treated especially in regards to their children. As someone who works with kids, I loved the often-relatable-if-exaggerated accounts.
2. 52 Reasons to Hate My Father
This title (much like its story) just reeks of spoiled-bratdom.
3. Steal Like An Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative
This is a great little gem of a book, with an attention-getting title. Totally recommended, by the way.
4. The Babysitter Murders
Janet Ruth Young
This one is completely un-hilarious, but instead a hundred percent startling and a little scary. For the paperback release the title was changed to the more-apt Things I Shouldn't Think.
5. Stupid Fast
Ahhhhhhahahaha I love this title. Say it really fast and it sounds awesome. I don't know why, it just does. Stupidfast!
6. Withering Tights
I am such a fan of puns. Wordplay.
7. How to Say Goodbye in Robot
This title just never fails to make me smile. So, so good.
8. Don't Kill the Birthday Girl: Tales From an Allergic Life
It occurs to me now that memoir-type books often have awesome titles. Got any more great ones for me? (Also, as an aside, the book itself is also really awesome and so informative when it comes to food allergies.)
9. Sleepwalk With Me
Again, a memoir. Again, a slight little twist on words. And again, very recommended.
10. I Now Pronounce You Someone Else
I really can't say enough good things about the title or the book.
Going through my list of 'read' books on Goodreads I've discovered that I've read a novel called How to Be Bad, and also a novel called How to Be Good. Huh.
