Because I like to pick random books off the shelf I often find myself judging books by their covers. How else would I choose? Well I could research them first but what's the fun in that? So I decided to make a short list of my top 5 favourite book covers, in no particular order:
The cover of the night circus reflects the book perfectly, mysterious and magical. I had no idea what the book was about when I picked it up other than a circus being the main focus and even a few pages in I still wasn’t quite sure what was going to happen, so the cover was what mainly drew me to the book.
2- The Cardturner –
I reviewed this earlier but I don’t think I mentioned how much I liked the book cover. I have the blue UK edition which is my favourite. Again I didn’t know what I was about to read when I bought it because there wasn’t much of a blurb but I wasn’t disappointed.
3- Hush, hush –
A monochrome, silvery-grey angel falling from the sky. Probably the best of all the covers from the series. I don’t know why I do, but I just like this one.
4- Fallen -
One of the risks of judging a book by its cover – disappointment. I liked the cover but I didn’t really like the book.
5- City of Bones –
I haven’t actually read this book yet but I thought the cover was interesting.
