    Like you, I’m also meticulous when it comes to book covers. I bought most of my books because I fell in love with their covers 😀 I’m also not into movie-tie-in book cover though i love (and I have) the Warm Bodies and The Last Song (Nicholas Sparks). I don’t have the TFIOS with Shai and Ansel on the cover coz the movie was not out when I bought the book. I agree with you that they should consider the story when making the book cover even it’s a different edition.

      yes!! i was always a little ashamed for buying a book based on the cover, but now i’m glad to know i’m not the only one. i don’t have the movie-tie-in cover of tfios either, it’s one of the few movie covers (that i know of) that are beautiful on books as well. 🙂

    I also, usually, judge a book by its cover. At least initially. The cover has to be interesting enough to catch my attention, then the synopsis, and so on. The only times I don’t judge a book by its cover is when it’s a book I’ve been waiting for (pre cover) or an author I already love!

    No shame, girl!
