Hardcover vs Paperback 92

The Secret Life of Prince Charming by Deb Caletti




Maybe it was wrong, or maybe impossible, but I wanted the truth to be one thing. One solid thing.

Quinn is surrounded by women who have had their hearts broken. Between her mother, her aunt, and her grandmother, Quinn hears nothing but cautionary tales. She tries to be an optimist -- after all, she's the dependable one, the girl who never makes foolish choices. But when she is abruptly and unceremoniously dumped, Quinn starts to think maybe there really are no good men.

It doesn't help that she's gingerly handling a renewed relationship with her formerly absent father. He's a little bit of a lot of things: charming, selfish, eccentric, lazy...but he's her dad, and Quinn's just happy to have him around again. Until she realizes how horribly he's treated the many women in his life, how he's stolen more than just their hearts. Determined to, for once, take action in her life, Quinn joins forces with the half sister she's never met and the little sister she'll do anything to protect. Together, they set out to right her father's wrongs...and in doing so, begin to uncover what they're really looking for: the truth.

Once again, Deb Caletti has created a motley crew of lovably flawed characters who bond over the shared experiences of fear, love, pain, and joy -- in other words, real life.

Well, these both fall into the lookalike category, see here and check back Friday for the other. So I really can't make my mind up, I feel like I've seen them so many times I don't have a reaction any longer, what do you think of them?

Hardcover or Paperback?

  1. They're both just okay - nothing outstanding.

  2. Anonymous7:40 AM

    I like the hardcover better.

  3. I'm going to go with the hardcover.

  4. The paperback is more attractive, but the romance is secondary in this story to a compelling family drama so neither really fits the book.

  5. I like the first one better. I'm super annoyed that they changed the covers of Deb Caletti's books - I had three that were like the first one and then I had to buy this one with the second cover!

  6. Hardcover here *raising hand*

  7. I like the hardcover best because the colors look balanced but I have seen these images way too many times before.

  8. I like the hardcover better, if only because it looks similar to other Deb Caletti novels.
