I was so excited when Isme asked me to do a guest post for The Book Slooth. There are so many different topics I could have written about, but I finally decided to talk about some of my favourite book covers.
We've all heard the expression "Don't judge a book by its cover", but you know that we all secretly do exactly that. While it's true that a book's content may not match up to its cover, or that a great book could have a horrible cover, I find that covers often give a good indication of what the book is like. After all, publishers spend millions of dollars designing covers each year. They wouldn't do that if it weren't important for a cover to represent the words inside.
There are so many great covers I could talk about, but I decided to pick a Top 5 of my favourite covers from books I've read in the past year.
