I have started this series of posts, 'Blurb About a Book,' because I believe some of the blurbs I come across about certain books I read are worth noting about. Maybe sometime down the line I will create my own blurbs ;), but for now others are worth deserving some attention. As a result, every Monday I will be posting a blurb about a book I have either read or will read that has some real representation to the book, or has had some impact in my reading the book. After all, what are blurbs for if not for influencing our decision to read the book? So let's see how some of the blurbs do.
"Simply virtuosic" - Lev Grossman, TIME
Two words! That's all! And yet, it pretty much convinced me I wanted to read this novel. I didn't just read the blurb and decide to buy the book. I read the description of the book. I felt a little inclined to read it. Then I read the blurb and I knew I wanted to see if it was indeed 'simply virtuosic.' It sounded like it would be. There it was, a voice confirming my own intuition about the book. So I went for it!
What's your blurb of 'The Host' by Stephenie Meyer?
