Top Ten Tuesday #10: Books That Were Totally Deceiving
Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish with a different topic for a top-ten list each week. You can find out more about it here.
The links will take you to my reviews, if available.
This week's topic is:
Top Ten Books That Were Totally Deceiving
1. Sweethearts by Sara Zarr
This book has candy on the cover. Candy! And in my mind, candy equals fun and fluff. If there are two words that definitely do not come to mind when I think Sweethearts, it's fun and fluff. Incredible, amazing, gut-wrenching, and heartbreaking, yes, but never fun and fluff.
2. Crash Into Me by Albert Borris
The cover for Crash Into Me looks, to me, like a Perfect Chemistry-rip-off, just another romance. And Crash Into Me is so not a romance novel (not that I mind romance)!
3. Invincible Summer by Hannah Moskowitz
The cover makes this seem like a fun, guilty-pleasure, feel-good, beach-read kind of book, which is not the case at all. Invincible Summer deals with lots of serious topics, and it's actually a very literary book.
4. Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols
I kind of hate the covers for Jennifer Echols books. They're so embarrassing and just... ugh. The actual books are so much more than the covers make them out to be!
5. While He Was Away by Karen Schreck
While He Was Away looks sickly sweet, like a totally cliched romance, which it definitely isn't!
6. The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour
I actually haven't read this book, but the cover is very happy-go-lucky, and knowing Nina LaCour's Hold Still, the actual book will be anything but happy-go-lucky.
Sorry, but I can't think of ten books to fit this topic, just six. But anyways, these are some books where the covers and descriptions totally deceived me. What about you?
