Connect 5 Friday – Titles with Puns


It’s Friday once again and that means it’s time for Connect Five Friday, hosted at Book Date by Kathryn – the meme where we share five book/reading things that connect in some way.

As the news seems to worsen each day, I thought I’d add a little bit of humour. I participate in a number of reading challenges and one of the categories was to read a book which a pun as its title. I find that many cozy mysteries really do love playing with words in their titles.

Here are 5 books with puns in their titles (I haven’t read them, but they are in my kidle TBR). These books as well are the first in a series by each author.

Rest in Pieces by Katie Graykiwski. I’ve enjoyed all the books I’ve read by the author. And this one, about Mustange Ridge, single mom, who decides she must investigate a murder, looks like a fun one to read.

  1. I always think such titles are so clever, usually I love reading the titles of the various cozy mysteries that have such good ones, even if I don’t read the book!
