TGIF - Bad Cover, Great Book

Yea! It's Friday, and time for Ginger's TGIF:


Show Me Your Cover: What are some of the worst book covers, but hold some of the best stories inside? Don't be embarrassed, show us your cover!


OK. I've never told anyone this, because I think most people really like this cover. Its:
The Vespertine, by Saundra Mitchell

The link goes to my review, and even one of my commenters mentioned the beautiful cover! I think she looks funny. Like a Barbie doll. And her arm looks bent at a wonky angle. And her head is cut off. And the colors are drab. I really liked this book, but I just don't see anything special about this cover.

OK. I'm tough. Let me have it.....

Thanks for stopping by. I will visit your post even if you don't agree with me, so leave me a link. Have a great weekend!

  1. I'm not a huge fan of this cover either and it has put me off reading this book, guess its time just to ignore the cover and start reading.

  2. I don't like this cover either. I think her head is very doll-like and just not natural. I did like the book though.

  3. Yeah, she does look like a barbie doll now that you say it. I don't think the cover's horrible, but I don't love it either.

Thanks for visiting! I LOVE comments! I've received several awards and because of the time involved, I now must make this an award free blog.
