Top Ten Books That were Totally Deceiving
(In no particular order, but I chose books I've read and want to read)
1. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
This one was deceiving in the title at first because until I had read the book, I had no idea how killing a mockingbird related to the overall story.
 2. Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier
I really didn't know what to make of the book judging solely by the cover (though it did match the title).
Even after reading the books, I still was unsure how the titles related, but they were still great graphic novels.
 4. The Night Bookmobile by Audrey Niffenegger
First off, did anyone else think this was a children's book at first? After reading it, I was sure it belonged with the Adult graphic novels.
5. Chasing the Moon by A. Lee Martinez
"Tentacles, what?" was the first thought I had when I saw this title's cover. Once I read the summary, I kind of understood how it related but still though it funny.
 6. The Rites and Wrongs of Janice Wills by Joanna Pearson
Okay, the cover made me think of a librarian (for reasons unknown), but it is in fact NOT about a librarian, I'm sad to say. Still I'm looking forward to reading it. :)
 7. Demon Lover by Juliet Dark
Not quite sure how the cover relates to the story, really, though it is a nice cover.
 That's all I could think of, but 7's a pretty good number, too. :)
