Booking Through Thursday: Cover Story Part 2

btt button

Booking Through Thursday asks a random question to bloggers each week.  This week’s question:

Are there any good books that you read IN SPITE OF the cover and ended up wondering what on earth the artist and publisher were thinking to pair up a cover that so badly represented a perfectly good book?

And … if you didn’t like the cover, what made you pick up the book? The author? Assigned reading from school? A recommendation from a friend?

I’m going to get blasted for this one, but I did NOT like the Harry Potter book covers.  I thought that they were cartoony and childish.  Despite all of my friends saying how awesome the books were, I waited until book 5 was released before I finally picked up the book.  I loved it.  I’ve read it probably 10 times since then.  I wrote Harry Potter fanfiction.  I played Harry Potter RPGs.  I took hundreds of sorting quizzes online – I’m a Slytherin by the way.

Don’t judge a book by its cover.  Seriously, I was so wrong on this one.
