Oftentimes I browse through a bookstore and pass by rows of books in silence, but then BAM! Out of nowhere I hear a scream. It’s an extraordinary book cover bellowing out, “Grab me! Buy me! Read me!”
I know the saying—don’t judge a book by its cover, but in my opinion, covers are there for a good reason. To draw in readers. Okay, so the cover doesn't determine the quality of writing or its ability to keep my interest, but it, along with a great title, is the initial attraction that influences me to read the blurb.
Below are a few covers that recently shouted out to me.
I love book covers. They reveal just enough of the story to rope me in. What book covers have recently screamed at you?
