So what exactly do I mean, the art of jumping fences? Well, clearly, this being a book blog, that actually isn't what I'm going to discuss today. Today, we're discussing misleading titles and blurbs.
I don't know about everyone else, but I personally really dislike it when the title of a book or the blurb of a book is misleading. IT'S FREAKING ANNOYING. You go into the book, say, expecting an epic adventure and BAM it's a sappy romance. Or you expect a nice romance and BAM it's erotica.
Recently, I reviewed Vain by Fisher Amelie. The blurb had promised several things, and delivered pretty much none of them. Unredeemable MC? Nope. Not the latest trend novel? Actually, yes, it was. It promised no "I can do anything, now that I've found you" tale. MISLED YET AGAIN.
To be quite honest, I can't remember any other examples (damn you book amnesia), but I do remember feeling annoyed about it before. So, your move:
What books have misled you before? Do you find it annoying to be misled?
p.s. I realise it's totally hypocritical to mislead you all with the title of this post mwahaha
