This week the question is:

What is the book with an awesome cover that you loved, but then you read  the book but didn’t love it?

This was a hard question for me. A lot of books with awesome covers I have enjoyed. So I had to do a lot of thinking for this one. but I think I finally have the answer!

The Pretty in Black Series by Rae Hachton. Here are the covers.

I especially like the first cover. The cover is just perfect for the tone of the book. It is dark and gothic but still pretty.  I liked the first book a little more than the second book. My main problem with the books were no development. The pacing was very fast and it didn’t leave much room details and for me the details make the story. They make it believable and they make you fall in love with the characters. I just didn’t really care to get to know them, which is a problem for me. 
What book did you think you were going to love based on the cover but then the story fell short of the cover’s awesomeness for you? Let me know! 🙂

    I never heard of these books before and the covers aren’t eye-catching enough for me to get them. I know! How bad of me! 😉 But, I’am curious!

    Oh gosh I have been sucked in by those cover whore books too many times to count. I couldn’t begin to relate the disappointments. I was just reminded of one on another blog and a series that totally sucked for me was Madly by M. Leighton!

    Interesting cover. I will admit to being one of those people who occasionally buys books just for the cover. And at the library- because I can borrow books for free- I will get books without reading the description because I’m in love with the cover. To say nothing about the state of my TBR list.

    Thanks for following and visiting my FF. I hope I’m following you through GFC.
