Have you ever decided to read something simply because of the book cover? I do, probably more often than I should admit. For me, when it comes to deciding on a book I either go one of two ways. Sometimes, I’m an uber specific mood reader I want to read about an injured hockey player in Wisconsin, and nothing else will do, or I don’t care what the book is about as long as I like the cover.
I’ve made several pretty specific lists, Gay Military Romances anyone? But now I’m bringing you a list of books with beautiful covers because I don’t think there is anything wrong with a little eye candy from time to time.
Sometime when I read a book based solely on the cover, it’s a disaster. The cover is pretty much the only good thing about the book. Other times, the book is just as amazing as the cover suggests. The stories told in these books are as amazing as the covers would have you believe.
This list is of 5 star reads with 5 star covers. Enjoy!

It doesn’t help that he’s buddy-buddy with my brother.Read More
