Musing Mondays is an original meme created by A Daily Rhythm.
This week's random question: Have you ever chosen a book mostly because of its cover art and then regretted it because the content didn't live up to your expectations?
Three words: Pride, prejudice, zombies. I mostly read this book because of the upcoming movie adaptation, but it was the cover art that made this book stand out from all the other titles on my "maybe" list. The image of a high society zombie girl, created by Doogie Horner was basically a spoof of William Beechey's painting of Marcia Fox (thank you, Wikipedia). It's a funny and provocative artwork that promises an equally funny and provocative story. Alas, the story is boring and the humour is dull and juvenile.
