After some deliberation I decided to go ahead and acquire the Barnes and Noble Leather Bound edition to add to my pitiful collection of currently 2 volumes of their rapidly growing list of beautiful collectable books. I hope to buy some more leather bound books in the future though, my life won't be complete without the entire collection!
Yes, I have. Most recently it happened with September Girls by Bennett Madison. The cover art is absolutely striking. I picked it up knowing nothing about it except that it somehow involved mermaids but I should've known it was going to be a disappointment based solely on its 2.96 average rating on Goodreads. The first chapter wasn't so bad, I was enjoying the main character's playfulness, but it all went downhill from there. I didn't connect with any of the characters and found the plot very dull and unsatisfying. I'm one of those readers who force themselves to finish a book even if they're loathing the content. In the end, I gave it 2 stars. A major disappointment. However, it still won't prevent me from, in the future, choosing books because of their cover art.
Are Bennet Madison's other books more captivating?
