10 Books I Bought for the Cover

I’ll be honest here, and I don’t think I’m alone by any means, but I 100% judge books by their covers. Yes, I hear you, ‘But Sarah! You could be missing out on so many excellent books! Are you crazy?’

Yes I am.
Fight me.

I may miss out on books , I’ll give you that, but it also leads me to books that I may not have picked up other wise.

Here are 10 books I bought almost entirely due to the cover.

Spaceman of Bohemia
  • Spaceman of Bohemia – Jaroslav Kalfar
Monsoon Mansion: A Memoir
  • Monsoon Mansion – Cinelle Barnes
The Watchmaker of Filigree Street
  • The Watchmaker of Filigree Street – Natasha Pulley
The Vanishing of Katharina Linden
  • The Vanishing of Katharina Linden – Helen Grant
The Yiddish Policemen's Union
  • The Yiddish Policeman’s Union – Michael Chabon
  • Faithful – Alice Hoffman
  • California – Edan Lepucki
Fates and Furies
  • Fates and Furies – Lauren Groff
The Light Between Oceans
  • The Light Between Oceans – M.L. Stedman
American War
  • American War – Omar El Akkad

I almost hated to do that, but judging books buy their covers is something every reader can probably admit to.
What are some book you have/have not chosen based on the cover? Do you regret you decision? I’d love to hear your thoughts below!

And as always, I hope you reading life is outta this world ☺
