Number One - book covers I adore

By guest, Apr 20 2015 09:00AM

So, this is my first blog post since about 2001 when I used Globo. Yes, it's been that long it doesn't even exist anymore.


I thought with The Good Kind of Bad coming out soon (thinking of #GKOB for Twitter, comments?) I'd look at some of my favourite book covers, ever. People do judge a book by its cover, like they do with everything else, but what interests me is the interpretation of the words into pictures and photographs on the cover. It's like a summary of the whole plot without the words.


Here are some of my favourites:

Ten Tiny Breaths by K.A. Tucker, designed by Anna Dorfman
