Sammy's Hill and Sammy's House by Kristin Gore-- These are the best book covers! So cute and actually give you a really good feel for the tone of the story.
The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger-- yes, I know this is the movie cover, which violates all my long-held beliefs. But it's just SO perfect for this story.
11/22/63 by Stephen King-- I really think this book would be at the top of my list in every book category ever. It's just that perfect. And the cover is what kept me coming back to this book. Every time I went to the store, I was drawn to it until I finally gave in to my fear of Stephen King and an 800+ page book and picked it up.
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon-- Already from the cover of the book, you know it's going to be a mysterious, dark story. This was one that I knew nothing about but looked at because of the cover. And I was well rewarded with a phenomenal story which became one of my favorite books ever.
Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter-- I have zero idea what this is about. But I want to go to wherever this cover picture is taken, so I obviously must read the book now.
The Fame Game, Starstruck, and Infamous by Lauren Conrad-- I love how her series book covers are different depictions of the same thing. The LA Candy books were candy hearts, and these are stars. It's very clever.
Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by Dai Sijie-- Again, I have no idea what this book is about, but I'm so intrigued. Whose shoes are they? Why aren't they wearing them? Are they hurt? Dead? Kidnapped?? They look small-- do they belong to a child or a woman? So many questions just from the cover that make me want to read the book to discover the answers.
Sad Desk Salad by Jessica Grose-- This one makes me laugh, so I imagine the book will be funny. A face made out of vegetables... Hehehe...
Paris: The Novel by Edward Rutherford-- This book really didn't have anything exciting going on other than a picture of the Eiffel Tower and the word "Paris" on it. But considering my burning desire to go there, that's really all it takes to get me to want to read it.
What are some of your favorite book covers?? Anything amazing you discovered thanks to a pretty cover?
Oh, and before I finish, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that two years ago today, I walked up to the rodeo at the Fort Worth Stockyards to meet this guy in the Brooklyn Dodgers hat. I had no idea that two years later I'd be married to him. Love you, Donny! :)
