I have succumbed to the power of Kobo’s mystifying and utterly enchanting ways. I purchased a book. I told myself that I was not going to buy a book this year until I finished all the ones that I have on my bookshelf and Kobo. But no, I failed myself. And it feels amazing in a slightly terrifying way. I have never been one to break the rules, in any way shape or form, so for me to be here and to be saying that I broke my own rule is strange.
Anyway, I purchased Hopeless by Colleen Hoover on my kobo, and let me tell you why. That book was $4.62 (after tax) on Kobo, and if I were to buy a tangible copy at our local bookstore it would cost me $12.27 on my membership discount before tax(only if I purchased it at the online store and picked it up in store), it is probably also important to mention that all figures here are in Canadian Dollars. Honestly who does not want to save $7.65? My second reason why I bought the book is because I sat down the other day and devoured Ugly Love in a matter of hours. It was compelling, interesting, and it had me hooked ever since the first line. So, I thought to myself while I pondered the purchase that was going to ruin my only rule about Book Buying this year, why not?
Anyway, the cover to Hopeless looks like this…
It is definitely not my favourite cover, but it is not bad. I wonder id the sky and the fact that she appears to be lying on the ground stunned has anything to do with the story. I only wonder that because the Ugly Love cover makes a lot of sense after you finish reading the book. Anyway, the cover is relatively plain, and in my opinion, uninteresting. If I did not know who Colleen Hoover was, I would not reach for this as a new author on the shelf. I hope the book exceeds my opinion of the cover tenfold! Because in my understanding, some of the books with the worst covers tend to have amazing work hidden inside (A.K.A The Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout). Anyway, that is really all my comments on the cover, but I hope that you are all having a great week, and are preparing for your exams with confidence and the poise that all bibliophiles carry!
