Hybrid titles

There is an absolutely addictive trending topic on Twitter today, #hybridmovies. After contributing a few (“Save the Last Flashdance,” “The Last King Kong of Scotland,” “The Breakfast at Tiffany’s Club,” and “Singing in the Rainman”), I had to tear myself away.

Which got me to thinking about hybrid book titles. Here’s a few:

The House of the Seven Anne of Green Gables
The Handmaid’s Tale of Two Cities
The Lovely Writing Down the Bones
Harry Potter and the Half In Cold Blood Prince
Tender is the Midsummer Night’s Dream (So, okay, it’s a play not a book. I’m easy.)
Smilla’s Sense and Sensibility of Snow

Got any of your own? Book or movie titles welcome!
