Top Ten Books That Were Totally Deceiving
Hello fellow readers! I'm so happy to finally get a chance to participate in the Top Ten Tuesday meme again. So this week's topic is about book that you found deceiving, as posted on the Broke and the Bookish blog: "...those covers or titles that don't fit the books, a book that was totally different than its summary, or those books you thought were going to be fluff that turned out to be more serious, etc."
I divided my list to two categories, the ones I liked and the ones I didn't. Most of these are based on the idea I formed after seeing their covers. So here's my list. In no particular order.
DECEIVING YET GRATIFYING
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. Beautiful cover… that regrettably doesn’t have anything to do with the story.
Need by Carrie Jones. Looking at it makes me think of it’s a book about vampires… it’s not.
Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston. A book with a cover of a girl that looked almost like she’s floating on water and the sort-of-aquatic-like typography made it seem like a mermaid book… turns out it was actually about faeries.
The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore. Okay, not really much on the cover art but more on the title; I thought of several theories on why it was entitled so but none of them were right. And the story really didn’t deliver whatever message the title was for.
Elixir by Hilary Duff. I read this out of curiosity, thankfully it turned out better than I thought it would be… but what’s the relevance of the flower???
...And there you have it. How about you? what books did you find deceiving at some point? ^_^
