Judge a Book by its Cover

It has been said that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover.  But the cover can draw your interest to a book you might not have read otherwise.  So here are a few books that have beautiful covers to judge for yourself!

Wither by Lauren DeStefano: What if you knew exactly when you would die?  In this bleak landscape, young girls are kidnapped and forced into polygamous marriages to keep the population from dying out. When sixteen-year-old Rhine is taken, she enters a world of wealth and privilege but despite the advantages, she has one purpose: to escape.

The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney: Freak. That’s what her classmates call seventeen-year-old Donna Underwood. When she was seven, a horrific fey attack killed her father and drove her mother mad. When the darkest outcasts of Faerie abduct her best friend, Donna finally has to accept her role in the centuries old war between the humans and the fey.

The Water Wars by Cameron Stracher: Vera and her brother, Will, live in the shadow of the Great Panic, in a country that has collapsed from environmental catastrophe. Water is hoarded by governments, rivers are dammed, and clouds are sucked from the sky. But then Vera befriends Kai, who seems to have limitless access to fresh water. When Kai suddenly disappears, Vera and Will set off on a dangerous journey pursued by pirates, a paramilitary group, and greedy corporations.
