By Its Cover
I hate to admit it, but I'm definitely a snob when it comes to book covers. Maybe it's the artist in me (or possibly a very well trained consumer), but a book's image can definitely convince me to want to read it. And believe me, this isn't always a good thing. It really irks me when I am drawn to an amazing cover only to be disappointed by the writing. Likewise, I always think it's such a shame when a great book has a mediocre cover (which is quite often the case).
I thought it would be fun to highlight some of the books I'm looking forward to reading, purely based on their covers. And after I read them I'll have to report back to say whether or not they live up to their design.
What about you? Are there any book covers that have you salivating?
