Let’s be real for a second… How many of you, dear readers, tend to pick a book based solely on the cover? I will be the first to raise my hand to acknowledging that a captivating, well-designed cover gets me every time.
Last week, one of my regular teen patrons stopped into my office to grab any ARCs or galleys that we had on our magical bookshelf of not-yet-published YA lit. I gave her some books I thought she’d like based on her interests and (naturally) a lengthy discussion ensued about how books catch her eye and tickle her fancy. She told me that covers are one of the major factors in deciding what her next reading companion will be.
This got me thinking. What books have I chosen solely based on their amazing covers?
