The saying goes, “Never Judge a Book By It’s Cover” But sadly we do it all the time. (I’m talking about actual books)
I have to admit that I almost never read the summary or book description of a book. (I know, I’m a daredevil lol) This especially goes if it’s from a series of books that I love. Like for example Harry Potter. When the Cursed Child was about to come out, I didn’t want to read absolutely anything about it.
When I want to know about a book I read the reviews. But almost never the description. (I have my exceptions) But sometimes there’s no time to find a review, specially if you’re in a book store. In those moments I go with the cover. If the book cover calls to me. Well, that baby is going home with me. But sadly when I buy like that(which happens a lot) I sometimes don’t even read them. I know. Shame on me.
Well, here are The top 10 books I only bought for their covers and haven’t read.
I have no idea what the following books are about. But here they are:
Poison: by Bridget Zinn
Absolutely no idea but the cover looks super cool. Kind of looks like Wonderland. I don’t know.
Saturday Night Widows: by Becky Aikman
This book only cost me $1.00, and since the cover is cute I bought it. But I have no idea. The cover doesn’t say much.
Abraham Lincoln Thomas Jefferson
by George McGovern by Joyce Appleby
Okay, I love history books, so I figure that I would love these 2. But yeah, they are still way down on my tbr list. Someday I’ll get to them.
Ripper: by Stefan Petrucha
I don’t know. But the cover looks cool.
The Wind Through the Keyhole: Stephen King
Okay, I have to confess that although I have many Stephen King novels. I haven’t finish any of them. This one was the first one that I bought of him. And I haven’t even opened it. lol
Anna Karenina: by Leo Tolstoy
I love classics, so I have many of them but I haven’t read any of them except for the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Cause Arthur Conan Doyle is freaking awesome.
Hidden Like Anne Frank: by Marcel Prins & Peter Henk Steenhuis
I don’t know.
Pippi Longstocking: by Astrid Lindgren
I used to see this show on tv when I was little so I figure I would read it really fast. Plus it’s a really small book. But no. I bought it like 4 years ago, and its still really low on the tbr list. lol
(sorry for the bad picture)
Monsieur: by Lawrence Durrell
No idea. I only bought it cause it reminded me of The Munster’s TV series. (I don’t know) lol
I know I’ve done this a lot and there are more that should be in this list and aren’t but these were the ones that are in the lower places of my tbr list. lol
