I’m sure I could make a handful of judging-a-book-by-its-cover jokes here, but suffice it to say that none of us are innocent of this. The cover of a book helps tell the story; it’s the first glimpse into the characters, world, and atmosphere. So it actually makes sense that we would judge a book by its cover in my humble opinion, and I think there are some authors, artists, publishers who understood their assignment and made some drop-dead gorgeous covers for all of us to drool over.
To Capture What We Cannot Keep
I loved this novel. I haven’t returned to it yet, because it was one of those books that I enjoyed so much the first time that I’m worried the second read might ruin it. No matter what, I will get back to To Capture What Cannot Keep, but for now it lives – beautiful as ever – in my mind.
Will I ever stop talking about Persuasion? No. The answer is no. And I know that there are lots of different book covers out there for this novel, but this will always be my favorite because it’s the one I hold the most.
Murder on the Orient Express
I received this copy as gift and it’s gorgeous! You can’t really tell from the photo, but the smoke curls are gold and shiny. It’s just so pretty and this book is obviously amazing.
