Q: Have you ever looked at a book's cover and thought, This is going to horrible? But, was instead pleasantly surprised? Show us the cover and tell us about the book.
A: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I am one of those people who judges a book by it's cover and I love pretty covers that stand out and blow you away and The Hunger Games didn't do this for me. In fact I hated the cover so much so it took me ages to actually get a copy let alone read it. Everyone on Goodreads kept telling me how brilliant this book is but I still didn't budge for a long time but eventually I caved and got a copy. When I finally read the book I thought WOW AMAZING, it was and still is one of my favourite books of all time as it made me laugh and it made me cry, I felt so attached to the characters. Now I feel so silly for not giving it a chance a lot earlier and it was all because of the cover. I would like to say that I have learnt my lesson but I haven't I still judge a book by it's cover but I am more willing than I used to be. I am also pleased to say that we have new covers for this series which tie in more with the film or other ones where it's just the mockingjay badge they look so much better.
