This is a weekly meme hosted by The Book List. Today's list: Cover Disgust - three book covers that missed the mark.
Here are mine:
This cover turned me off to the book for a long time. I finally gave in and read it and I thought the book itself was as dull as the cover. It looks blah to me and it read blah to me.
I can't look at this cover and think of anything other than Cassandra from Dr. Who. It makes the book look stupid, which it's not.
I get why they chose the armadillo, but it really does nothing to make the book look appealing at all. There's nothing about this cover that makes me want to pick it up and see what it's about. If I weren't familiar with the author or the story or the book itself I'd pass right over it.
