    Are there any that really stick with you?
    I thought of Stardust just because it's really simple, easy to remember.

    Anything you can think of, I also would add Pulp Fiction and Glass Soup to the list.

    Well here's a gem by Malcolm Bradbury, 'It's wrong to eat people.' I'll add that's probably the worst book title ever xD

    I actually like the title "Eragon" very much since you can change the "E" to a "D" and make "Dragon" which is what the book is about.

    I've always been very fond of the title The Iron Dragon's Daughter (which is a book by Michael Swanwick if anyone wasn't sure). It really makes you wonder.

    "Oh, there's a dragon? That's pretty nice, but thousands of fantasy books have dragons... Oh, it's made of iron? Well that's pretty cool. And intriguing.... And this iron dragon has a daughter?! Like a human daughter or what? I got to find out."

    I am being biased with Harry Potter just because it's the reason why I love fantasy. :D

    I always liked 'The Once and Future King'. 'Lord Foul's Bane' is a good one too!

    I am biased but it's Harry Potter just because it got me into loving and becoming obsessed with fantasy. I can never forget what it did for me...

    As much as I hate to say it...Game of Thrones is a great memorable title.
    I am a sucker for Robert Jordan's titles as well...i.e Wheel of time etc...

    I know it sounds a bit silly but...Inkheart.
    Most of you probably don't even know about the books/movie. But to me it was precious. It made me want to start writing:)

    Dragons of Autumn Twilight was a pretty awesome. Dragonlance, in general, is a pretty badass title.

    I personally have to pick a title that we all know well, Game of Thrones. When I first saw that title it's what made me read that book before I even knew anything about it. It was and still is an awesome title

    I agree with previous posts, but would also like to add:

    Spirited Away (film by Hayao Miyazaki)
    Coraline (book by Neil Gaiman)

    It's catchy, I agree. Hence why they probably changed it. Still, I prefer 'A Song of Ice and Fire' as a title. I love how he uses the word song as in fable.

    All the Fitz books by Robin Hobb, those are: The Farseer trilogy, the Tawny Man trilogy, and the Fitz and the Fool trilogy. Also, A Song of Ice and Fire. I will not include sci-fi si9nce the title said fantasty. And I woulkd have to go on for a long time about sci-fi. PKD though.
