Musing Mondays (4)

 Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.  Each week we will get a fun reading related question to answer.  This week Musing asks:

Would you choose to review a book if its description sounded interesting but the cover was terrible?

Yes, I still would even if I didn’t like the cover.  I usually read books that catch my eye, but you just never know what you might miss if you choose to neglect a book based on the terrible cover.  The outside may not be pretty to look at, but the inside might be one of the best works ever!  Kind of like the cookies that your loved one makes which aren’t pretty but taste wonderful.  I have been very drawn to a cover before, but was not impressed by the story unfortunately, so I am willing to try them even if they aren’t great covers.

In My Mailbox (7)

 In My Mailbox is a fun weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren that lets us share our bookish finds!

This week I bought four additions to my library!

Anna and the French Kiss – Stephanie Perkins

Torn – Amanda Hocking

Broken – Travis Thrasher

The Color Purple – Alice Walker

I’ve heard so many very good things about Anna and the French Kiss that I had to go and get this book.  I am very excited about reading this one!  Two of these books, The Color Purple and Broken, I had to buy again because of flooding at my house.  I lost a bunch of books and writing magazines to the flooding, and to top it off, the renovation company took them and destroyed them after they were going to try to “salvage” them without telling me they were destroyed!!  I was so mad.  Thank you to the insurance company for sending me a check to replace my ruined books even though they never got the book list from the slack renovation team.  I can’t wait to get the rest of my ruined books replaced!
