Road Trip Wednesday: Going Undercover

Today's Road Trip Wednesday question:

What are your all-time favorite book covers?

For me, trying to remember favored covers is like sifting through the faces of every person you have ever met in your entire life for a few random people you spoke with once in seventh grade.

But as I pondered the question, there was one cover that did spring to mind. I have never read the book, and probably never will (I just don't like fairies), but I would love to have a poster of it:

I have no idea why, but I have loved this cover since the first moment I laid eyes on it, and it haunts me to this day. It's so spooky and tells a story all its own.

How about you? What are you favorite book covers?


  1. That *is* a very evocative cover--as you say, almost a story prompt on its own. I've not read the book either, but if I saw that on the shelf, I would be flipping it over to see what it's about.

  2. Yes! I had that cover on my list too (and have been raving about it for weeks). I read the book and loved it after breaking down and ordering it from the library. I was *this close* to buying it (before I even read it) because of that cover. I like fae - mostly when they're treated as an otherworldly race, and not tiny, winged people.

    Here are my cover picks:

  3. I loved that cover! I keep meaning to get that book on my Nook and forgetting! Thanks for reminding me. :)

  4. I saw this on someone else's and wanted to reach through my computer screen and make it mine. I have to find this book!
