M It's interesting how almost all the books on this list have dark, haunting covers.

I noticed that too. I guess that's what's visually appealing to people.


message 3: by AudryT (new)

AudryT Never tried to vote on Goodreads before. Here goes.


message 4: by Robert (new)

Robert Barker I am surprised how simple some of the good ones are, the ones lower on the list are too busy I guess


message 5: by Kristin (new)

Kristin i love how the first six books are my six of my favorite books ever


message 6: by Alli (new)

Alli i love this website.


message 7: by Nicole (new)

Nicole Gaspar i actually ended u p picking up a book that is now my all time favorite (cry wolf by Briggs, its on this list) by thinking the cover looked interesting =)


message 8: by Alli (new)

Alli Thanks I will have to check that book out. I found 7 books on here


message 9: by Nicole (new)

Nicole Gaspar lol me too. i have such a huge kist of books i gotta get my hands on. Cry wolf is about werewolves, there is a sister series (some of the same charaters) by the same author its the mercy thompson series. you can read one withouth the other, but i love them both, and they sort of follow eacher on a time line and share the same charaters, but thats pretty much all that they have in common


message 10: by Nicole (new)

Nicole Gaspar list not kist oops


message 11: by Yiling (new)

Yiling they should put more of the least popular on top


message 12: by Jasmin (new)

Jasmin these are awsome books they should add more


message 13: by Sheba (new)

Sheba They are great books to read and enjoy!! :) :)


message 14: by Krista (new)

Krista This is a fantastic site.. now i can look for more books to add to my collection. :)


message 15: by Claire (new)

Claire hmmm... alternatively, if a book sucks and it also has an awful cover, it could be on this list according to the name "judge a book by its cover"


message 16: by Hayley (new)

Hayley love the fact that hush, hush is the first one on the entire list!!!


message 17: by Paweł (last edited Feb 14, 2011 01:58AM) (new)

Paweł so poor covers... honestly, i voted on 10 out of 600.

you can add your's ^^


message 19: by Nickbobed (new)

Nickbobed I think Fallen has one of the coolest covers, the cover is actually what drew me in to read it.


 ♥ Lady Dalis :D ♥ i read almost all the books up there......

Same for me. I bought it cause of the cover. To bad the book wasn't as good as I was hoping for, but it was still a good read.


message 22: by Lauren (new)

Lauren is it just me, or is it always that the WORST books have the BEST cover!?!? take fallen for an example.......


 ♥ Lady Dalis :D ♥ actually fallen didn't really get good for me until i got to like the 16th chapter


message 24: by [deleted user] (new)

Fallen I thought was okay, after you et into it. The second one was good. My favorite guy characters are Jace and Patch. So I like that they are up there. Most of these I have read and a lot of them I liked.

Daphne Delacroix Kristin wrote: "i love how the first six books are my six of my favorite books ever"

same here!


message 26: by Breanne (new)

Breanne Tiger series should get an award for their covers. They are amazing!!!


message 27: by Tochi (new)

Tochi eclipse is my best book cover there cos it says a lot in it's simplicity


message 28: by Buthayna (new)

Buthayna I hated the Hollow cover. I read the book and it was amazing , but I pictured abbey to be more Beautiful and without all this make-up which by the way looks scary.


message 29: by André (new)

André Rodrigues ♥ Lady Dalis :D ♥ wrote: "i read almost all the books up there......"

Most of the 1277 books?

message 31: by [deleted user] (new)

The Ballad of Young Tam Lin by Patricia A. LeslieBest of all, the writing is even better than the cover.


message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

As far as the Fallen series goes, I think Passion (Fallen, #3) by Lauren Kate has the prettiest cover.

Glad to know i wasnt the only one who thought the cover was off. The cover ruined my impression of her. Thank goodness i downloaded the book and didnt see the cover first.


The story line draws me in, The cover is the next thing i look at. If it has eye-appeal then maybe it will be a good read. Though this theory does not always work.


message 34: by Hermione (new)

Hermione Maria wrote: "It's interesting how almost all the books on this list have dark, haunting covers."

They attract the most attention. (:


message 35: by Xela (new)

Xela I think it's funny that the top 10 books on this list are all written badly, with terrible romance and spineless heroines.

In fact, on further inspection, it seems like most of this list (with the exception of a few) is a bunch of terrible books. Maybe that's why they're on this list: because they looked better than they actually were.


message 36: by TheOneAndOnlySam (new)

TheOneAndOnlySam well said Xela, but i reckon quite a few of these books are good reads. for example hush hush was one of my faves till i discovered tiger's curse by colleen houck. but twilight has a horrible cover and a weird and not so good story to match


message 37: by Hermione (new)

Hermione Honestly, Hush, Hush was great, but when I read it a second time, it totally flattened my high expectations. I don't know why, but I just ... I dunno. It wasn't as interesting.

And though the Tiger's Curse has a splendid and beautiful cover, I found the book boring.

I suppose what's in the book is just a matter of opinion, but I think our views will not be so diverse on talking about the beauty of the covers. :)


message 38: by TheOneAndOnlySam (new)

TheOneAndOnlySam yeah, covers on books are pretty much the yes or no to should i or shouldn't i. but a lot of book that i have read, are horrible covers, but then the story itself was amazing, and vice versa. it all really depends on what u like to read


message 39: by Hermione (new)

Hermione Exactly! You totally summed up my words better than I could myself. xD


message 40: by [deleted user] (new)

They say we should'nt judge books by their covers,but thats what most of us do anyway,because covers are made to pique the interest of potential readers


message 41: by Chimney (new)

Chimney It's horrible, but I tend to judge a book by its cover nearly all the time. It is the deciding factor usually when I have several books I want to get, yet can only get one or two of them.


message 42: by Hermione (new)

Hermione ^ Yes!! Finally someone other than me that judges books by covers!!


message 43: by Chimney (last edited Apr 27, 2012 07:44PM) (new)

Chimney A cover is part of the package, plus I love to pull them off the shelf and admire them. :)


message 44: by Hermione (new)

Hermione Exactly. (: Covers are supposed to eye-catching for me if I want to pick up the book.

And if the story's good, it goes in my to-read list!

Josephene Stull Love this cover. The old truck, barn animals, and hot woman is right on with the Witches, Bitches, and Good Ol' Boys title.
