#ClickbaitBooks Will Change How You Look at Your Favorite Books Forever

Twitter is having a lot of fun today with the hashtag #clickbaitbooks, which reimagines classic book titles as the annoying-but-alluring kinds of headlines you can’t resist clicking.

This joke has existed since at least 2014, when the Internet hit peak Upworthy-esque headlines. But clearly someone has started it up again, with authors, publishers, and other websites getting in on the fun.

Not that Harry Potter (props to Waterstones and BuzzFeed on that one) or these other SFF classics need the additional incentive to click—er, open up—but it’s a fun game for those who have already read the books.

Here are our favorite tweets we’ve come across so far today:
