    "Suspense and romance with paranormal/mythological/fantastical storyline. I loved the characters. A good book for adults and teens alike. I finished it in a weekend and could barely put it down."

    "I remember reading this book in my english class over 30 years ago. I remember having nightmares after reading it. It is very chilling to think of that book with the way the world has become since I first read it all those years ago. I would say that the book does have a great cover to hide what is actually in the book. "

    "The cover of this book really caught my eye at the bookstore, so I thought I'd check it out. It was an interesting look at life in the circus a long time ago, with a bonus love story. A beautiful story with a beautiful cover!"

    "This is in the vein of Twilight , but still not a bad book, very well written , much better than Twilight in my opinion. Lauren Kate does well by the story. She adds new twists and turns to the genre' of young adult romance books. I loved the characters and the attention to detail was very refreshing. I can't wait to read more of this series. "

    "I was looking for a book with really compelling cover art to display on my modern bookshelf. This one was alright, but the awards information cluttered too much for my taste. The book itself is a great story, but it didn't entirely hit what I needed."

    "I'll be honest, I only pick up The Book of Lost Things because of the cover artwork. I was so intrigued by the image and the overall design that my interest in the story was secondary. Luckily, the story did not disappoint. I really enjoyed this story and recommend it for all readers."

    "This is just more of the Hunger Games esque teen girl fantasy novels. This one seems to be pretty popular but its honestly just more of the same nonsense. Avoid this unless you are a 14 year old girl."

    "Definitely one of the best book with the best covers! The cover is as beautiful as the writing. The cover is as magical as the story as it draws you into reading the book. The words and the cover really drew me into the story. The cover contains several books and I like how the author has done a great job at weaving several tales and different emotions into the story just like the cover. I would read it again! "

    "I was very disappointed in reading this (and I only read it because of the upcoming release of the movie adaptation) to find that about 90% of this is actually Jane Austen's canon. There is nothing new as far as the basic plot but Seth Grahame-Smith adds a word, a sentence, a phrase or as much as a paragraph here or there in order to insert something or other about Zombies or what he takes for comedy. And at times these additions are totally outré, out of place and then ignored by the characters. For example: at about 10% we have the scene at Netherfield in which Elizabeth has come down to the drawing room after being with Jane, who has a terrible cold, and Caroline states to Darcy, “You write uncommonly fast.” Darcy: “And you prattle uncommonly much.” More canon from C. and Darcy then says, “And how odious indeed that I should so often suffer to write them in your company.”…etc., etc., etc. These snide little remarks from Darcy are inserted and there is no reaction...from Caroline or from Elizabeth? Then another example of a sentence dropped into place with its adding nothing to the goings-on: at 37% - “Apparently overcome with excitement, Charlotte dropped to the ground and began stuffing handfuls of crisp autumn leaves in her mouth.” No reaction from those around her?

    "I was looking for a good book with a good imaginative cover for catching the imagination of some kids. Percy Jackson wasn't the best choice. The cover is fine, but it's a little too busy, and the kids weren't really excited about it despite its reputation."
