Q: Have you ever looked at book’s cover and thought, This is going to horrible? But, was instead pleasantly surprised? Show us the cover and tell us about the book.
This has happened to me on numerous occasions! The first book that comes to mind is Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier. I actually put off reading this book because of the cover (and the fact I usually hate time travel in books). Judging by the cover, I thought the book would be stuffy and lack excitement. Turned out to be one of my favorites once I actually got around to reading it (My review here). I think I'm one of the few people who is happy they redid the cover design!
What do you guys think of this cover? Love it, hate it? Am I crazy?
My review here), but the guy on the front looks like he's wearing a freakin' vase on his head... I mean... really? Look my helmet doubles as a water glass! Super intimidating. The dragon is bad-ass, but the guy is just a major turnoff.
Any of you have a similar experiences with a book covers?
