HourglassQ: Best Cover? What is the best cover of a book that you’ve read and didn’t like?

Oh, no doubt about it, it was 
I had a serious case of cover-love-at-first-sight, so I even pre-ordered the hardcover edition! But the minute I started reading it... well, I was incredibly disappointed. The writing felt weak, the characters were very bland, and the story simply didn't suck me in. 
It had everything to be awesome: a fantastic cover, an exciting synopsis, a mysterious hottie... too bad it didn't do it for me.
A lot of people loved it, though. But I guess that kind of thing always happens. :P

  1. For some reason, I think of Inception when I look at Hourglass. Still, even though I have the urge to pick this up because of the great cover, I'm not getting the good book vibe. New-ish follower.

  5. I think I loved Timepiece's cover even more than Hourglass. People have been saying good stuff about it, but for some reason I've never picked it up. New follower.

  13. I have this book, but haven't read it yet. I will admit that I bought it because the cover is so flipping pretty! I'm prepared now for a story that might not live up to its prettiness.
