Bad Books With Pretty Covers
We in the bookish community love to lie to ourselves. We like to pretend that it’s only what’s on the inside that counts. And while this is a nice sentiment and whatnot, a pretty little quote to put on t-shirts and mugs and stuff, it’s not always true when it comes to books. We love to judge book covers, it’s in our nature. Sure, the inside matters, as we are about to see, but let’s be honest with ourselves, our bookshelves are all about the aesthetic. At least, mine are. I am not ashamed to say that put all the ugly books in the back (sorry, not sorry)
So, without further ado, I am going to list a couple of extremely beautiful books. Book’s that would make my shelves shine. Books that I have read, and even bought, solely for the aesthetic of their covers.
Books whose deceitful covers have filled me with regret after reading.
Here we go.
