Top Ten Books
That Were Totally Deceiving
I'm going to try my hardest to not spoil anything here in case someone hasn't read them...
The "Cover Confusion" Deception
Those books whose covers deceived me:
The Duff - Kody Keplinger
Covergirl isn't very duffy to me.
This also falls under the "so much more than I thought it would be" category. Love this book.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer - Michelle Hodkin
I still don't think I get the cover. It's stunning, but doesn't connect.
Looking For Alaska - John Green
I'm very vocal how much I don't like this cover. But love the book!
The "So Much More Than I Ever Thought It Would Be" Deception:
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
Thought it would be cute fluff. It's that, but SO SO MUCH MORE.
Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld
The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson (review here, and my favourite quotes here)
I had no idea how utterly beautiful this would be.
every book by Rachel Cohn (a few not pictured)
all her stuff is very fluffy cute, but underlying are always some very poignant thoughts and struggles. Fan for life!
The "Heard Some Things About It But Was Totally Wrong" Deception:
Chopsticks by Jessica Anthony and Rodrigo Corral (review here!)
Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyers
As I've said before, didn't even care about the pregnancy scene. It was everything else. Ugh.
The "If You've Read It, You Know" Deception:
Bridge to Terabithia - Katherine Paterson
I can't. I just can't. One of my favs ever.
