Bloody Bookaholic's Commandment:

Thou Shall Read Till Thy Eyes Bleed

Would You Read Me? Don't Judge a Book By It's Cover

Let's play a little game shall we? I am going to give you guys a summary of a book that may or may not sound good (you be the judge) but I am not going to give you an image to accompany the book. This way we can find out if you would read it or not even if the image of the book sucks a lot.

No Info till next Wednesday
Generations ago, a genetic experiment gone wrong—the Reduction—decimated humanity, giving rise to a Luddite nobility who outlawed most technology. 
Eighteen-year-old Luddite Elliot North has always known her place in this caste system. Four years ago Elliot refused to run away with her childhood sweetheart, the servant Kai, choosing duty to her family’s estate over love. But now the world has changed: a new class of Post-Reductionists is jumpstarting the wheel of progress and threatening Luddite control; Elliot’s estate is floundering; and she’s forced to rent land to the mysterious Cloud Fleet, a group of shipbuilders that includes renowned explorer Captain Malakai Wentforth—an almost unrecognizable Kai. And while Elliott wonders if this could be their second chance, Kai seems determined to show Elliot exactly what she gave up when she abandoned him. 
But Elliot soon discovers her childhood friend carries a secret—-one that could change the society in which they live…or bring it to its knees. And again, she’s faced with a choice: cling to what she’s been raised to believe, or cast her lot with the only boy she’s ever loved, even if she has lost him forever.
So, now, all you have to do is say if you would read it or not!
(Yes or no will suffice if you don't wanna write a lot)

Next Wednesday I will post a new summary with no image,
I will also post the cover and book information of this week.

PS; If you know the name, image or whatever of this book do not say anything. Don't give any sort of information away please.

  2. This is a great idea!

    I would consider reading it, definitely. I'm not sure if it's my type of book, though.

  3. Sounds very interesting. I would read it.

  4. Yes, maybe. but i'd have to be in the mood for it.

  5. Nope, sounds like a steampunk and I dislike steampunk.

  6. No. It sounds really interesting, but not something that I am in the mood to read right now. Lol.

  7. I am impressed, I thought everybody would say yes xD Good for you guys, keep it coming!

  8. Sounds interesting. The cover, though, would tell me if it is YA or romance.

  9. Probably not, at least not right now. I like the sounds of the 18-year-old protag and the childhood friend with the secret. From the synopsis I reckon it (should be, at least) is +400 pp. long...

    Great idea! Cannot wait to see what the cover is.

  10. No, not really. Doesn't sound like my cup of tea. But I am curious to see the cover though. :)

  11. I would most probably read it, it sounds intriguing.

  12. The whole romance bit of it seems good, but the world seems a bit complicated. I would first look at its goodreads reviews, see the cover, THEN make up my mind.
    But I would try to look up those, since it DOES seem intriguing.
    If it was a NetGalley, the cover would probably make me decide, or if I had heard bloggers talk about it before.
    So basically... summary not good enough on its own.

  13. oh, also depends on the author.
    If its someone I know and have loved before, I'd read it, without another thought.
    If its someone new, then the rest of that stuff in my previous comment.

  14. Hmmm...sounds a lot like a bunch of other books coming out now (Divergent really sticks in my head). I would probably read it if I didn't have anything else on my list at the time.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I would read it, but only because I am a sucker for future distopia books :) Interesting idea :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. I've read this summary somewhere... but I have no idea where. I'd say yes, why not? I like caste system steampunky things.

    ReplyDelete
  17. It doesn't sound spectacular to me, but I would read it because it sounds like a futuristic version of Persuasion, which is kind of awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I do want to read this book! I actually have it on my Goodreads to-read list =)

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Ricki It's YA ^^

    @Krazzyme I like your enthusiasm.

    @BookChick you know your literature, it is kind of a re telling of Persuasion xD

    @ChicklitGirl thats why I also didn't put any author names because I know that if you put a book in front of me with the names Richelle Mead or Julie Kagawa I'll read them no matter what xD

    @Nicole O.O

    @Kari then you know the cover O.o But yeah it does sound interesting, I have it on my wish list as well ^^

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hmm, it sounds a little like Jane Austen's Persuasion.. but I like that so hellz yeah I'd read this!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Sounds quite good. Would add it to my list - not at the top but it would get read eventually. Intrigued to what it actually is now. :D

    ReplyDelete
  22. WAIT A MINUTE. I KNOW THAT BOOK.

    But no worries, I won't tell. Rereading the summary made me realize that I've been waiting for this book for a while now, LOL. I just didn't know all the details until now.... very tricky, Taschima. Very tricky. o.o

    ReplyDelete
  23. Interesting game. Initially the description caught my eye but by the end I lost interest. Funny though I had to go look up the book and the cover may just have tipped me towards reading it :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. What a great idea - I think that I'm a lot less cover-judgey now I mostly read ebooks but I'm curious to find out if that's true or if I'm dilluding myself! It's a yes to this book from me, definitely!
