You Can't Judge A Book By Its Cover... Or Can You?

They sat you're not supposed to judge a book by it's cover, but we all do it. Covers are the first thing you notice about a book, and with gorgeous covers like these it's hard not to. You Can't Judge A Book By It's Cover...Or Can You? takes a look at the lovely covers of the books on my wish list. This week we have:

Lipstick Apology by Jennifer Jabaley

Release: August 6, 2009

Synopsis:Four Little Words Written in Lipstick...mean Emily must say goodbye to everything she knows. Emily Carson has always been a good girl. So when she throws a party the night her parents leave for vacation, she's sure she'll get busted. What Emily doesn't know is that her parents will never return. That their plane will go down. And the only thing left amidst the wreckage will be a tray table with the words: Emily please forgive me scrawled in lipstick—her mother's last words.

Now it's fall in New York City and Emily's trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. Her public tragedy captures the attention of more than just the media—and soon two very different boys at her new school are pursuing her: the cute, popular Owen and the quirky chemistry partner slash pastry-baker-by-night, Anthony. But even with such delicious distractions, Emily can't let go of her mother's mysterious apology. Does she have the courage to face the truth?

With help of a whole new kind of family—one that includes a make-up artist to the stars, a teen model, and a wacky hairdresser—Emily must choose between the boy who makes her forget it all, and the one who encourages her to remember, and ultimately, heal.

Sometimes goodbye is just the beginning.

Cover: One word: gorgeous! There are so many beautiful layers to this cover. At the top, you have the girl staring back at you, her face lit up in purples and reds; then it fades into the city lights; and, finally, the bright sunny city at the bottom. Just looking at the cover you get a sense of transformation and change, from the colorful top to the sunny city.

Give Up the Ghost by Megan Crewe

Release: September 15, 2009

Synopsis: Cass McKenna much prefers the company of ghosts over "breathers." Ghosts are uncomplicated and dependable, and they know the dirt on everybody... and Cass loves dirt. She's on a mission to expose the dirty secrets of the poseurs in her school.

But when the vice president of the student council discovers her secret, Cass's whole scheme hangs in the balance. Tim wants her to help him contact his recently deceased mother, and Cass reluctantly agrees.

As Cass becomes increasingly entwined in Tim's life, she's surprised to realize he's not so bad--and he needs help more desperately than anyone else suspects. Maybe it's time to give the living another chance...

Cover: If it weren't for this book's cover I probably never would've found out about it. The blues, greens, and pinks are such a pretty combination. Even better, the ghost whispering into the girls ear immediately catches your attention. Very pretty, well done cover in my opinion.


  1. YAY! I want to read both of those books!

  2. Give Up The Ghost was a really good book. I loved the cover too(:


  3. I don't really like the cover for Lipstick Apology but I love the cover for Give Up the Ghost.
