Hardcover vs Paperback 70

Angels on Sunset Boulevard by Melissa de la Cruz

Hardcover

Paperback

Amazon.com:

Pay to get in,

Pray to get out.

Johnny Silver is the world's soon-to-be biggest rock star, but on the eve of his debut concert in Los Angeles, he mysteriously disappears, causing global pandemonium. His friend Taj tries to discover the truth about his disappearance, which leads her to TAP.com and its shadowy founder, Sutton Werner, who throws the wildest parties in Bel-Air.

TAP started out innocently enough, as a website that dishes the dirt on the kids of Sunset Boulevard and beyond. But it has become something more. Membership is a privilege with responsibilities and consequences.

At Sutton's parties, anything goes, especially in the legendary backroom rituals nicknamed The Angels Practice. Rumors abound of a special drink handed out at the parties that tap into otherworldly sensations.

One night Taj meets Nick, a Westside preppie who doesn't buy into the TAP mayhem, especially since his kid sister never came home from attending one of its blow-out bashes. Slowly the two of them are drawn to TAP and to each other. But Taj just might know more than she's letting on....

Are you ready for the darker side of Tinsel-town's brightest lights?

The hardcover says tattoos to me and it's kind of happy looking unlike the book summary so probably the paperback. I'm not sure I'm really digging the paperback either...

Hardcover or Paperback?

  1. I'm all about the paperback on this one. The hard cover looks, boring and old to me.

  2. Definitely hardcover, the image appeals much more to me than paperback, that's just a girl and shiny colors.

  3. I'm not sure that either of them really appeal to me but I would choose the hardback over the paperback.

  7. I love the hardcover! I also strongly dislike the paperback for some reason. I am usually partial to cover art rather than cover photos.

  9. I really like the hardback cover myself. The paperback has a very weird feeling to it.
