Judging a Book by its cover

I hate to admit it, but I do judge a book by its cover. If I’m in a bookstore or perusing the books section at one of my favorite retail stores (ie, Target), I tend to pick up a book because the cover drew me in. Rarely do I grab a book with a cover I don’t find appealing unless I already know the premise of the story because it was recommended to me by someone.

So, I guess I’m a book cover snob. In the realm of snottiness that’s not too bad I hope. At times, I will read books with covers I don’t like…so, don’t think I’m so close minded that I’ll just shoo something away because I’m not digging the outside. ‘Cause I won’t. I’ve read plenty of books that I’ve loved but haven’t necessarily been fond of the cover.

Here are some covers that I am loving right now. Some of these books I’ve already read, some I haven’t yet, but their covers have caught my brown eyes, and I can’t help but admire them.
