Judgement Day

If you were to judge your favorite book by its cover, would you still read it?

My favourite book (well, trilogy) is probably my teenage favourite “The City of Bones” by Cassandra Clare. Having pre-ordered the second and third books a month before they were released, Clare could have had almost any cover and I would not have turned the ever-growing story down.

Having bought the original book, the cover is this:

"City of Bones", Cassandra Clare, UK / Australia Cover

“City of Bones”, Cassandra Clare, UK / Australia Cover

(Cover taken from: http://tmisource.com/2012/09/05/never-judge-a-book-by-its-cover/)

There’s no doubts about the fact that the cover of a book lures you in, but if you’re recommended a book with a not-so-great-looking cover, you still read it and are nine times out of ten,¬†pleasantly¬†surprised.

“Never judge a book by its cover.”
