Vicki at Reading at the Beach challenges us to share two books that didn't match the cover or the blurb we read out them.
I agree with Vicki that a book's cover totally causes me to want to read it or not. My first example is The Postmistress by Sarah Blake. I thought this book's main character was going to be the Postmistress, but really the main character was a radio journalist.
My second example are the two books I recently read by Barbara Kyle. They each had a title referring to a member in the royal family, but overall the books were about a fictional family who helped influence the royal family.
