This hop is hosted by Billy at Ramblings of a Coffee Addict. I missed last week’s prompt, but still wanted to answer it, so I’ve included it here with this week’s prompt.
Last week’s prompt:
So, the cover has to draw me in initially, but the summary is also important. One book I recently purchased because of the beautiful cover is The Storyteller’s Daughter by Victoria McCombs, and this was a total cover buy. However, if the summary on the back had been uninteresting to me, I probably would have resisted the urge to buy the book. I love fairytale retellings, so the blurb totally convinced me to buy it.
I just love this cover! 🙂
Yes! My biggest pet peeve is when the story doesn’t match up with the blurb. You know those books where you read the blurb and you’re like, “Yes, I have to read this”, and then halfway through you’re like,”What happened to the stuff I read about on the back cover? This is not what I thought it was going to be like.” Then you go read the back blurb again because you wondering if you read it wrong.
What about you? Do you buy books just because of a beautiful cover? Do you have any pet peeves about books? Let me know in the comments!
