GReads posts the questions ahead of time ... because I'm organized like that =)
This week's theme is: Show Me Your Cover: What are some of the worst book covers, but hold
some of the best stories inside? Don't be embarrassed, show us your
I'll admit that I will fully judge a book by its cover. In fact, I've been lured into reading some books purely because of their covers, only to be sorely disappointed by what's inside. When I look through my favourites shelf, and my recently read books, two covers jump to mind.
While I wouldn't say that the cover of Legend is terrible or anything, I most definitely would not have picked this book up if it hadn't been for Jaime @ The Perpetual Page Turner's rave reviews. And boy am I glad I did -- a dystopian loosely based on Les Miserables? Oh YEAH! This book was so, so, SO good!
On a separate note, I've just seen the cover on Goodreads for Prodigy, book 2 in the series, and it's much, MUCH better.
How about you? Have you ever picked up a book that didn't look all that exciting based on the cover, but found a hidden treasure inside? Leave me a link and I'll come visit!
