  1. Isn’t it weird how you can dislike a book but love the cover? Just goes to show that a cover can be misleading sometimes…. >.<

    • You are SO right. I have been deceived by many a cover, and it’s infuriating, especially since I have read amazing books with terrible covers. They deserve the good ones!

  2. All gorgeous covers. I love that you separated it between books you loved and books you hated. Too bad you hated Paris, My Sweet- it is such a cute cover!

    • I think Dance of Shadows is one of those books you either love or hate. It had its redeeming qualities, and I can see why people love it. I just was not expecting such a paranormal spin.

  3. I absolutely LOVE the cover for The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight and Meant to Be! I haven’t read them yet, but when I do I hope I love it! :D

    I see you didn’t like Black City, I wanted to read it but then I read your review a while back and you said it was very violent and gruesome and I don’t read books like that! :)

  4. It’s so funny, I hated Black City too but I loved the cover, it was gorgeous and made me want to love what was inside, but I just couldn’t! I haven’t read Dance of Shadows yet but I adore the cover, it looks gorgeous. Sorry you didn’t like it. :(
    Great picks!

    My TTT

    • Yeah… Dance of Shadows was terrible. Honestly, though, I’d rather read it again that Black City. Hopefully you like it more than I did. :)

  5. Lol. I almost divided my list into books I liked, and books I didn’t like, but I realized that after I’ve read a book, my feelings for the cover change. I really love covers that accurately represent the story.

    I haven’t read Dance of Shadows, but I do love that cover! It’s so pretty. But I haven’t heard great things about the story.

    • You know, I totally see where you’re coming from with your feelings about a cover changing once you’ve read it. That’s happened to me before as well. Good point!

  6. I have Jennifer E. Smith’s book’s cover on my list too! I adored that book as well.

    I really like the Black City cover (own, but haven’t read yet) and the Dance of Shadows cover (haven’t read yet.)

  7. I love the cover for Meant to Be! And I just finished Instructions for a Broken Heart after reading your review and I thought it was amazing! So happy I got to it! :)

    • Oh, I am SO glad you loved Instructions for a Broken Heart! I’m always so flattered when someone buys a book based on my review. It makes me feel like I’m really contributing! Thanks for letting me know!

  8. Those are pretty covers. I love them all. Do you hate it when a pretty cover draws you in and it turns out you don’t even like the book? That happened to me recently (twice…). It’s so disappointing.

    • YES. It’s infuriating! I want amazing covers to have amazing stories inside! Which books recently deceived you with their covers?

    • Dismal is a good way to describe Dance of shadows, actually. And yes, go get Statistical Probability! It’s wonderful.

  9. Paris My Sweet has such a darling cover! Shame that the insides didn’t match though. Love how colourful Meant to Be’s cover is.

  10. Meant to Be made my list too!! I love the colors in it! The Dance of Shadows cover is so beautiful, but I’ve not heard great things about it, so I haven’t read it yet. I almost put Statistical Prob. on my list as well… I love the black&white with the red and the busy-ness of the airport with the calm of the couple. Cool list!

    My TTT

    • Yay, Meant to Be! I love colorful covers. :) If you do read Dance of Shadows, let me know what you think. Some people love it!

  11. Instructions For A Broken Heart is the book I reaaaally wanna check out from this list :( Can’t find it anywhere! Ugh. Anyway, I love your list :) Really excited for my first TTT post this Tuesday. Pretty new to the book blogging scene, but it seems amazing!
