I Totally Judge A Book By Its Cover: Part 1

Or...10 books I want to read because the cover is awesome

Hi.  My name is Emily (a.k.a. Gnomegrlem), and I judge books by their covers.  Whew!  That feels good to get off my chest.  Don't shake your head with that look of judgement on your face.  You know you do it too.  Thank goodness publishers are starting to get a handle on covers for teen books.  Have I been massively mislead by an awesome cover?  Absolutely.  There have definitely been those instances when I really wish I had read a few reviews before diving in to the book.

More often then not I'm entertained, moved, or inspired.  As you will find the more we get to know each other, it doesn't take much to amuse me.  It all comes down to why we read, but that's a post for another day.

So, 10 books on my radar solely because I like the cover:

1) Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

Girl with a giant crossbow?!
2) The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour

Like the retro look.

3) The Selection by Kiera Cass
Pretty dress #1!

4) Hemlock by Kathleen Peacock
Pretty dress #2!

5) Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
Ghost story feel and fun title.
6) Supergirl Mixtapes by Meagan Brothers
A new syncopated book?

7) Kiss the Morning Star by Elissa Janine Hoole
Girl in a car...road trip?!

8) Enchanted by Alethea Kontis
Pretty dress #3!

9) My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
Like the Instagram look.
 10) Wentworth Hall by Abby Grahame
Young Downton Abby vibe.
