This week I saw the covers of two books that had me drooling to read them.
The first was Torment by Lauren Kate.
The second was The Dead tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan.
Both are the second book in a series and I had never heard of either one of them but now they are must reads for me based on these two covers (and titles by the way). I still don't know anything about the stories and I don't really care - I must have them!
Do you ever buy a book not knowing anything about it, just based on a pretty cover? Typically I'm a researcher. I have too many books already so if I see something I'm interested in I write it down.....read reviews and then see if it makes it to the TBR pile. Occasionally I'm swayed by a cover or a review and then it throws my whole TBR pile out of whack!
So if you've bought a book based on just the cover - where you ever dissapointed afterwards? I have to say I've been pretty lucky. If a cover hits me then I usually enjoy the story as well.
A book I just had to read recently was Getting Revenge on Lauren Wood. I fell in love with this cover! And I loved the story too!
Did you also notice the things I have the biggest reaction to are death or evil related?? LOL! Not sure what that says about me.
So tell me what makes you have to buy THAT book NOW! Has an impulse buy ever backfired on you?
