Q: Have you ever looked at book’s cover and thought, This is going to horrible? But, was instead pleasantly surprised? Show us the cover and tell us about the book.
That hasn't happened to me that I can remember, it may have but it isn't coming to me off the top of my head. There was a time when the opposite happened though, I saw the cover for Imaginary Girls before it first came out and fell in love with it, isn't it gorgeous? The synopsis was a bit vague, but I didn't think anything of it and the review snippet on the book trailer was really positive (but then again it would be). Anyway, when it came out I rushed off and bought it in hardcover, but it turned out actually - in my opinion - to be a bit of a dud. I finished it, and I didn't hate it with a passion, but it was very luke warm for me, and I don't dislike books I read often because I am choosy and usually start reading series after being recommended by a close friend or multiple positive blogger reviews, but I kind of disliked this one.
I would love to hear what you guys all said!
p.s. Happy International Women's Day!
p.p.s. I already did this post when I remember a time that there was a book that I didn't read because I didn't like the cover "How to Train Your Dragon" I thought it would be corny and weird and to this day still haven't read the book, but when I saw the movie, I thought "oh my goodness this is adorable, I think I should have given the book a chance!"
Love you all
