Whether you are new to the writing game, or a seasoned pro; aligning your work, especially the title to what is hot and what is selling is not necessarily a bad thing.
Wouldn’t you rather sell 50 books than two books. In writing a book you may find that it is absolutely necessary to choose a similar title to harness and capture on the best sellers book sales. There are other ways in which this can be done, but the easiest, is to create books with a similar sounding title, and in the same category or niche.

Total Phrase Substitution, with keywords to link back to the original book
If the Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling is the best seller in the Kindle store, then alternative titles for your book would be:
The Spectacular Wilderness Scroll….A look inside the jungle book
A Striking Labyrinth Work…inside the maze that is the jungle book
Near Suspenseful Tangle of the Atlas…a journey in the jungle book
This type of book titling works very well; especially if the book title being copies is in the public domain.
