Judging A Book By Its Cover: The Illuminae

This is my weekly post where I highlight and appreciate cover designs and the general physical appearance of books. We all judge book covers to some extent. I can’t say that I’ve ever decided against a book with terrible cover art if I liked the sound of the plot, but I have purchased special editions of books, or multiple editions of books based on their cover art. If book covers didn’t matter, publishers wouldn’t put out so many beautiful editions!

This book is AWESOME looking. I have no idea what it’s about, honestly, but who cares right!? I mean, I can’t be the only one that blindly buys books because they have cool see-through jackets and writing all over the place and pictures…right? I mean, I know this is YA and there’s some alien stuff, or something paranormal? I don’t even care, it’s just so cool looking. This is a Knopf edition, 2015, ISBN: 9780553499117.
