When I am browsing in bookstores I am often attracted to books because of their covers. A following is a short list of the books I have purchased recently based only on the attractiveness of the cover.
Palisades Park by Alan Brennert
I mean come on who can resist a vintage cover with a Farris wheel? I have lately been obsessed with reading books about fairs, high diving acts and circuses so this book was right up my alley. I love the painting like quality of the cover. I was happy that the book was just as good as the cover!
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Speaking of circuses! This book had been taunting me for months every time I went to the bookstore. I love the silhouette with the mysterious art in the middle. I finally purchased the book and I love the artwork even more after reading it. And it makes more sense too!
The Selection by Kiera Cass
Ok who could resist this gorgeous cover? And it is even prettier in person and not on a computer screen. I love the frothy gown. Too bad this book was as frothy as the gown. So substance. But the cover sure is lovely to look at.
Those are the books I have purchased recently. I will have to add more later that I have purchased over the years.
