Friday Feature: Cover Art

img_1837

What’s the old adage, “don’t judge a book by its cover”, right?

Well, as wise as that phrase may be, sometimes I DO judge a book by it’s cover.  #IdowhatIwant Sometimes selecting a book is a choice that comes down to aesthetics for me. Can you blame me though?…I am, after all, a photographer. My brain’s pleasure receptors light up like a bonfire when my eyes fall upon beautiful imagery. Fact.

So I’m going to indulge that part of me with a simple post about book cover judgment. DISCLAIMER! Featuring a cover in this post, does not mean anything other than I love the cover! It does not mean I was asked to feature it or that it is now on my TBR – it might not be. This is just about covers, folks. But, I’ll let you know if it is on my list or if I’ve already read it.


For this Friday’s Featured Cover:

The How & the Why by Cynthia Hand

I am drawn to this cover because of the colors. The yellow and blue complementary with the purple in both. Just…really interesting looking. Unfortunately, the synopsis did not seem to be something that just really screamed READ ME so I am just going to admire and not add it to the much-too-long-already TBR.


I’d love to see what covers you guys like! Post one in the comments or to your own blog. Let me know if you’ve read it or not, and if that cover judgment proved to be a bad choice.
