It’s reader confession time!! I love the whole “blurb catnip” subject ’cause we ALL have read those blurbs that just grab us and make us want to read it ASAP. Hence “catnip”. We go nuts over it just on the synopsis alone.
But what IS it about the blurb, exactly? Do we tend to fall for a certain subject matter, time and time again? I know I DO. I’m a “forbidden love” addict (something that has the potential to go SO wrong and make me go OH NOOOOOOOO!!!!). Or the ultimate moody-brooding, uninterested hero with the whole “unrequited love” thing going on. Ugh. So hurty!!! I love it!
But today, we’re exploring Jan’s blurb catnip.
Jan: Blurb catnip. Hmmmm.
I’ll have a second look if there’s some sort of arranged marriage or H and h reluctantly having to live or stay together then falling in love (duh).
H is superhot and protective but also loves kids and small animals LOL. h is strong and has moral integrity but maybe lonely or isolated by life circumstances and falls hard for manly man.
Aaaahhhhh. I’m lovin’ that book.
LOL!!!!! Oh yes I do love the arranged marriages too, ’cause it’s so hard for two strangers (or non-strangers but that don’t want to actually be together) to get along at first. And when they start… “clicking” and enjoying each other’s company, you can find me grinning ear to ear. I’m with you, Jan. AND YES. Nothing better than a hero that loves animals. *swooooooooon*
Er… P.S. Have you read M. Pierce’s Night Owl yet? It perfectly combines my love of brooding, uninterested and ornery pain-in-the-butt hero, and your love for a hero that loves animals. Sometimes it seemed that was the ONLY thing he loved. BUT OMG I LOVED HIM!!!
How about you guys? Do you and Jan share the same book-blurb attraction? What’s YOUR blurb catnip?
