message 1: by Tytti (new)

Tytti | 45 comments Okay, there's been a lot of talking about cheesy (and very embarrassing) book covers. Yes, I'm talking about the Fabio ones and the ones where the couple in the cover should really find a room... Or just the really bad ones...Yes, like these:
Captive Rose by Miriam Minger
or
The Man Who Loved Jane Austen by Sally Smith O' Rourke
or
Night After Night (Brotherhood of the Blood, #5) by Kathryn Smith

So, what I'm wondering is that have you find a book that you loved but also had a beautiful cover?
I have,loved the book and LOVED the cover.
Blood Promise (Vampire Academy, #4) by Richelle Mead

ps.if you know also very bad covers.... put it here!

message 21: by Regina (new)

Regina (ReginaR) Shadowfever (Fever, #5) by Karen Marie Moning I think Shadowfever is beautiful.

I strongly dislike covers that show either naked/half naked men (but for some reason BDB books don't bother me, hmmm.....) or show a couple in an embrace.

Same here Regina. And I especially hate picking them up at the library. Yes, I may enjoy reading a bit of sexy times, but does everyone and their brother need to know that?


message 23: by Regina (new)

Regina (ReginaR) Exactly! That is why I love to read those books on my Kindle, but it can get expensive ......


message 24: by BaileyBones (new)

BaileyBones | 25 comments Okay im kinda new to this so would somebody tell me how to get a picture on here?


message 25: by Regina (last edited Jun 29, 2010 03:32PM) (new)

Regina (ReginaR) When you click reply, above the box you are typing text is a link "add book/author" click on that and search for a book -- then choose "cover" instead of "link".

Same here, thank goodness for my Kindle when i read BDB. My mom would have been furious if she had seen the covers, and my friends would probably give me crap about it.


message 28: by Rochelle (new)

Rochelle (toastqueen) | 27 comments I actually bought Addicted by Charlotte Featherstone because of the beautiful cover!


message 29: by M. (new)

M. Clifford (MCliffordAuthor) Fallen Grace by Mary Hooper, The Dark Goddess (Billi SanGreal, #2) by Sarwat Chadda, The Muse of Edouard Manet (The Time Chronicles of Emily Porterfield, #1) by M. Clifford

Love all these covers. Feel the need to say that the 3rd cover is to one of my books. Not saying any of you need to read it, etc. -- Just really love the cover. My wife designed it and I love it! :)

Ok, I bought this book for the cover art AND the name. Its kind of cheesy looking, but I mean, come on--who could resist it? Bimbos of the Death Sun.

I bought this book The Wages of Sin because I loved the garden pictured on the cover. This is the "true" first edition of this book. However, having been a faithful fan and waited more years than I want to even THINK about now, I then bought the new one when it finally came out [[bookcover:Bimbos of the Death Sun|1187197] The Wages of Sin (Cin Craven, #1) by Jenna Maclaine Wages of Sin (Cin Craven, #1) by Jenna Maclaine


message 33: by Ann aka Iftcan (new)

Ann aka Iftcan (Iftcan) | 2491 comments Mod
Hum, wonder why the first book didn't show the cover?

The weird thing is--despite the title, Bimbos is a mystery.


message 34: by Vickie (new)

Vickie Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1) by Becca Fitzpatrick
i LOVE hush, hush's cover
it's the reason i was drawn to it!
as well as Fallen!
Fallen (Fallen, #1) by Lauren Kate

I agree with you on the covers of "Lord of the Fading Lands" and "Lady..". The German cover was unbelievably cheesy and the title misleading. I also don't like the cover for the last book
The Crown of Crystal Flame.

message 40: by Andrea (new)

Andrea | 69 comments The only reason why I picked up Fallen (Fallen, #1) by Lauren Kate was because of the cover!

Agreed. I think what makes them so stunning is that the designers went for something simple, clean.

Airs Above the Ground by Mary Stewart This was the first Mary Stewart book I ever read. And I read it because of that cover. At the time I was going through my "horse mad" phase that many girls go through. :o) I ssooo wanted to be a rider for the Spanish Riding School (that's one of their Lippizaners on the cover) and, well, since this book had THAT cover. . .
