The Book Nook

Welcome to the Book Nook! This is the weekly thread for Avocados to discuss books we’re currently reading, recommendations, genre, and serious literary criticism.

This week’s recommended discussion: book jacket descriptions or loglines that were WRONG WRONG WRONG about their book content. Laughably wrong. Outrageously wrong. Lost-in-translation wrong. FRAUDulently wrong.
(hat tip to a quiet storm)

Settle into your favorite chair, and let’s celebrate the written word.
One caveat: because we’re here to use our words, this is a NO GIF/YouTube/social media embed zone (the OTs are full of clutter, and I want to keep that out of this thread).

upcoming topics:
5/29: beach/vacation reads (h/t to MisterSplendiferous)
