Tuesday Tagline #1

Need

"No one gets something for nothing. We all should know better."

Taglines are a favorite of mine, and a good one can sell me on a book or at least make me very curious. And sometimes they make me laugh out loud or get me thinking "THAT sounds cool." So here's a semi- regular feature celebrating the taglines that I come across.

This particular one, for me, matches the slightly chilling tone of this cover and the story as well.

  1. My husband is keen on the tagline of the new Stephen King book: "There's a reason why cell rhymes with hell."

    Here's my Top Ten!

  3. I do like some of the taglines out there. I swear, they are running out of good ones, though. This one is perfect, though!!! I almost don't notice it on the bottom of the cover :(

    1. Yeah every once in a while you come on a good one. I've had taglines sell me on a book.

  5. This is a great topic idea! Can't wait to see other taglines that catch your eye. Sometimes I finish reading a book and look back at the tagline and think, "Really? Who comes up with these things?" when it doesn't match the book at all. LOL.

    1. That's true. They don't always match. A good one... will definitely sell me on a book though. :)

  9. I don't think I really pay attention to tag lines. I sometimes find them a little cheesy, truth be told. But I do think a good one can be intriguing. Happy Tuesday!

    1. I know, they can be hit or miss. I see some I really like, and then others I'm like oh please. lol

  10. I love this! I sometimes like to come up with my own tag lines for books post-reading. Trying to sum up the book in a quippy sentence - it's kind of a fun exercise.

    1. That sounds fun! I've never tried that but I can see where it would be hilarious. Thanks for stopping by. :)

  11. Huh, I don't usually pay attention to taglines (except on your pulp covers, of course lol). I couldn't even tell you if the books I've read recently even had taglines. I know my favorite series books have taglines, but that's only because I've re-read them and looked back at them so many times, and I don't remember what they actually say. So apparently taglines are not much of a selling point for me. But I guess they can be interesting, like this one. Maybe I'll start paying more attention to them now!

    1. What, no taglines? I would have thought you'd be all over those. :) But yeah those pulp ones are sometimes outrageous, aren't they? I have a lot of fun w/ those. Seriously those, some I notice and some I don't, so I get that. There ws an old tagline feature that another blogger did that I participate ina few times, but she hasn't done it in ages and I've been wanting to share some of the ones I find. Seemed like time. :)

  12. I love taglines and they often sell a book to me! I am more drawn to them than I am to the blurb really. Great idea for a feature and I love the first one you've chosen too. It definitely draws me in.
