What kind of book title grabs your attention?

    I'm busy working out a plan for my next novel which I aim to start during NaNoWriMo which is next month.  I'm trying to think of a cunning attention-grabbing title.  So what I want to know, is what kind of a book title will make you reach onto a bookshelf, grab the book to read the blurb?  Do you like long titles, short sharp ones, clever titles?  What will get your attention and make you want to take a closer look?

      depends on the topic really...and then short, sharp and clever, that gets at the topic quick!

    Yes I agree with SomewayOuttaHere, the short title that grabs you usually works for me.
    The books i all ways  revisit seem have titles of no more than three words, that’s what attracted me to them in the first place. Good luck with your novel.

    The worst is when all the titles you think of have already been used.  Am trying to come with a unique one
