Question of the week: Have you ever looked at book's cover and thought, This is going to horrible? But, was instead pleasantly surprised? Show us the cover and tell us about the book.






OMG, yesss! Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles!... I remember a blogging bud recommened the book and when I saw the cover I thought, "Thisss is the book everyone is going wild about? Doesn't look very good to me...!" ....SO WRONG!

Boy, was I kicking my own ass for not having read it sooner once I finished it. I LOVED this book. As I would say when I was a child, "I want to marry this book and have it's babies"

If you haven't read it, you are seriously missing out! You can read my review for it here.

  1. Haha, yes! The cover for this is awful and I think it turns a lot of people off of reading it. Which is a shame, because it's AMAZING.

  3. I do this all the time, and i'm a sucker for reading more about a book purely based on the cover. Learning to keep an open mind now, but pretty covers still draw me in.. oh dear!!

  6. Since I'm so into design I always do this. But I've learned to just read it regardless because I'm usually surprised! ;)

    I had the same reaction to the book as you.

  14. I totally see what you mean Diana :) !! I couldn't bear the sight of this cover and as soon as I read it I fell in love with the book and the cover itself wasn't so painful to look at afterall ..

    Could we share the custody of these children please ? XD

  15. It's been a long time since I've stopped by, so I wanted to say hello!

    Yeah, this cover isn't super terrible, but it definitely doesn't do anything for me. I keep hearing great things about it and I've been meaning to read it for a while.

  16. That's exactly how I felt before reading this book, and then when I was reading it I didn't want people to judge what I was reading based on the cover. But I'm happy to say that I recommended it to all my book loving friends after reading it! :)
    Great choice!

  17. That cover isn't so bad! But I don't think I'd pick it up off of a bookshelf. LoL
