I Admit...I Bought This....

...because it's by J.K. Rowling.
 
I had never even HEARD of this book before yesterday when I saw the "news" that this book was in fact pinned by J.K. Rowling herself.

I'm about six chapters in and so far ... so good.
I'll have a tease for you next week!
 
Have you/Will you read this?
 
Do you buy books strictly because of who the author is? Or does the story have to appeal to you too?

  1. I downloaded the sample as soon as I heard who wrote it. I hadn't heard of the book before then either.

  3. Usually, it's the description that will pull me into a book. There are only a few authors I will buy without hesitation -- off the top of my head, I come up with Kate Angell (I love her baseball romances) and Jessica Park ("Flat-Out Love" won me over forever).

  4. Usually, the book description has to win me over. There are only a few authors I will buy without hesitation. Off the top of my head, that list includes Kate Angell (I love her baseball romances) and Jessica Park ("Flat-Out Love" won me over forever, I think). I'm anxious to check out this book you posted about though. I still need to finish the Potter series.

  6. I have thought about reading this book. It sounds interesting and I love her writing but I base that on Harry Potter. I think I will be disappointed and I don't want to be LOL

    Can't wait to read what you thought :)
