It's a cover up!

Don't judge a book by its cover and all that... I know but how often are you attracted to a book just because something about the cover is really pretty/ugly/different/cool? I know that I often pick up a book just because I'm drawn in by the cover. So here are a few of my favourite covers:

Marisha Pessl: "Special Topics in Calamity Physics"

Margaret Atwood: "The Blind Assassin"

Evelyn Waugh: "Black Mischief"

Chuck Palahniuk: "Snuff"

F. Scott Fitzgerald: "Tales of the Jazz Age"

Which covers are your favourites?


  1. I really enjoyed Special Topics in Calamity Physics too, and its cover is beautiful. :)

  2. Yes the cover drew me in immediatly, i couldn't keep my hands off this book. Good thing that the story lived up to the cover :-)
