Willoughby Bookclub/Goodreads/Judge a book by its cover
Hi all, sorry if this has been asked before, but I was just curious too know how many people have discoverd books either by goodreads/bookclubs/seeing a book in the shops ( or bought one just because it is illustrated by a favourite, even if you know little about the book )
So far I have discovered, and enjoyed
- The journal of best practices, david finch via goodread recommendations
- A face like glass, frances hardinge, via a willoughby bookclub subscription, and
- The 13 1/2 lives of Captain Bluebear, a novel, by Walter Moers, by seeing the book in waterstones and buying it purely based on the cover ( and the illustrations inside )
I have also bought a few books just because they are illustrated by chris riddell - island by nicky singer and odd and the forst giants by neil gaiman, though i haven't got around to reading them yet.
What books have you discovered in this way?
