Wonder Wednesday: Judging a book by its cover?

Hello lovely readers! I hope this Wednesday is treating you well! This Wednesday I’ve been wondering about books and their covers. There is a saying that says, “you should never judge a book by its cover”. Its an excellent analogy about how you shouldn’t judge people based on what they look like, but I have a hard time applying this to books. Cover art to me is like the first love letter to a book that you see and if it isn’t well done then I wonder at the time and effort put into the book that is behind it. Maybe that’s fair, maybe it isn’t. What I’d like to know: do you judge a book by its cover? And if you do, what most appeals to you on a book cover? If you don’t then how do you determine which book to buy?

I can’t wait to hear from you!
