So today I thought i’d list some books that you should read without the synopsis.
Some of these I brought without knowing what they are about and others I have actually read without knowing what they are about – some were hits and some were misses 🙂
We Were Liars
Now, the synopsis on this one is very vauge.
‘A beautiful and distinguished family.
A private island.
A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy.
A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive.
A revolution. An accident. A secret.
Lies upon lies.
So really, you don’t know much about what’s going to happen really which does make it super interesting – however this book and me just didn’t get along and I ended up not enjoying it very much at all.
Six of Crows
This book I picked up based on the fact it had been all over goodreads and it was written by the marvellous Leigh Bardugo so I had no idea what it was about other than the fact I needed to read it. Looking back at the synopsis on Goodreads I feel like it gives away quite a lot and this would definitely a book to pick up without reading the synopsis.
Every Heart a doorway
This book is on my list to buy based on the fact everyone seems to rave about how good it is and its less than 200 pages, I haven’t read the synopsis yet myself as i’ve heard you don’t really have to read it to love what is happening inside! Fingers crossed I love it when I finally get around to reading it 🙂
This is another book that I picked up (and loved) without really knowing what it was about. Looking back i’m glad I read this without knowing what it was about as the synopsis on goodreads piratically gives away everything that happens in the book 🙁
Throne of glass
I was super late to the party on this one and picked it up based on the fact it was written by Sarah J Mass. This is definitely a book you should go into blind, I think you’d enjoy it a lot more 🙂
What books did you buy without reading the synopsis?
I’d love to know in the comments 🙂
