My Love of BookBub and My Book Cave, Plus Two Great Book Descriptions Ending with a Zinger

I love BookBub and My Book Cave from a purely maniacal reader standpoint as well as the always-searching-for-a-good-read, studying-her-craft author. Besides, what better research can an author do than read?

Now from my authorial vantage point, I collect manifold examples of the best (IMHO) I can find in the context of writing on every level: first lines, loglines, online descriptions, character names, places of interest, relationship articles, magazine models who seem to have a story to tell, fantastic quotes as themes, wonderfully emotive quotes as writing prompts, great cover art, yada, yada, yada.

So, in recent My Book Cave offerings, I found two brilliant book descriptions that ended with a zinger. Now I've seen great ones in BookBub's newsletters too and elsewhere, and this "zinger" version isn't the only type I adore. However, these two came almost back-to-back, if memory serves. And I just have to share them with you. If you click on their links fast enough, they both may still be free. I love both covers too.

After the Cure
By Deirdre Gould
Eight years ago a plague turned most humans into cannibalistic animals. Six years ago, a cure was found, and the Infected woke up. And they remembered. Everything.
