This week’s topic is Most Misleading Synopses

Significance by Shelly Crane

11731861

When I read this synopsis it sounded so intriguing to me. I had to force myself through reading this and gave up on the last 20 pages. Being a paranormal romance I had preconceived notions, but it definitely fell into the Twilight category. 

Of Monsters and Madness by Jessica Verday

This is another synopsis that had me so intrigued and wanting more. It failed big time. It stated that it was a retelling of gothic horror featuring Annabelle Lee from Edgar Allen Poe which is one of my favorites. The only way it was really incorporated was with the name.

This synopsis lead me to believe it would go in a totally different direction then it did. I thought it would be a creepy horror story, but did not read as such for me. 

Dead River by Cyn Balog

This is another book I thought would be a horror story. The synopsis was short but it lead me to believe there would be killers or ghosts. It went a totally different way then I thought it would. 

This was a difficult one for me to complete. I haven’t read a lot of books lately that have had synopsis that misguided me. I had to look through my read book list and look at synopses.

What are some books that have had the most misleading synopses?
