I almost didn‘t buy this book because I didn‘t get the cover. Now that I‘ve read the book though, the cover holds a special place in my heart. Joining Majors on her journey inspired me more than I can express.

#riotgrams Day 21 - #BadCovers

I really struggled with this prompt because after going through my bookshelves I honestly couldn‘t find any book covers I hated. So I went with this one because I typically hate when they change the book cover to be a still from the movie adaptation.

Into The Water | Paula Hawkins

I saw this book advertised all over Tokyo and kept thinking it was an unattractive cover. Then I realized it's a translation of Paula Hawkin's new novel. Note the Japanese edition is in two volumes (They do this a lot. I assume easier to read on a train but also makes more money for the publisher?) my library's home page just had it available so time to see how it is! After i finish these other 2 ebooks... #mommyreads #ebook #japanese #badcovers

Love the book, hate the cover. All I see is a guy who appears to be very constipated. #badcovers #riotgrams

JaclynW I haven't read the book yet and yes, the cover isn't appealing. In fact, for the longest time I wouldn't add it to my TBR just because of the cover. I know that I'm breaking the "don't judge a book by its cover" rule but I had to! I finally gave in because of the Litsy love for the book, so it's officially on my list now. ?? 2y
britt_brooke I despise this cover. The photograph is called The Orgasmic Man. 2y
IWriteInTheNight Hahaha I so agree with you about the cover. It makes me cringe so hard 😂. 2y

I don‘t own this edition, but this is truly a contender for the worst of the #badcovers that have been inflicted upon classics. #riotgrams @Liberty

My ugly ducklings...if I had to name the covers, I'd go with Ridiculous, Offensive, and Boring.

One of the flashiest of my #badcovers. It is hard to tell in the photo, but the whole cover on this one is also nauseatingly iridescent.

mcipher That is. Wow. 😬😂 2y
TK421 Is that Lion-O from Thundercats pointing a wand at a flautist? 2y
SpeculativeFemale @TK421 Thank you for saying that! I always thought that looked like Lion-O; good to know it isn't just me! 😂 2y
