Friday Linkups: Hyperbole and a Half
It's Friday linkup time! I'm linking up with the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer, Book Beginnings of Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, and the Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice.
This Week's Book Blogger Hop Question:
Does the title of the book make or break your decision to read it?
I wouldn't say in makes or breaks my decision to read it but it definitely impacts it. Generally it's the title I see at the bookstore, or the library and that definitely impacts my decision about whether or not I'll pick it up to even read the blurb. I have come across a handful of titles - especially in romance - that were so bad I was too embarrassed to buy them!
"When I was ten years old, I wrote a letter to my future self and buried it in my backyard. Seventeen years later, I remember that I was supposed to remember to dig it up two years ago."
There's more text than I was expecting but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I'm guessing the letter is going to be interesting to say the least!
Page 56 (well 55 because page 56 is just a drawing at her staring longingly at cake)
"My need for sugar would become so massive that it would collapse in upon itself and create a vacuum into which even more sugar would be drawn until all the world had been stripped of sweetness."
This actually reminds me of Emma when she was little. The child had a massive sweet tooth. We once caught her adding sugar to a bowl of frosted flakes because they were sour. We also caught her eating sugar on several occasions.
So what do you think? Have you read this one? Would you keep reading?
