Judge a book by its cover

Yes, it’s true. We should not judge a book by its cover. We have seen wonderful covers that masked a less than stellar story and we have see some wonderful stories hidden behind less than stellar covers.

However, we are human and as humans we do judge the cover. It is our first impression. We judge people the same way (a post for another time). We know we shouldn’t and we try not to, but it happens.

Having said that, the cover does a lot to catch our attention (or turn us away).

Sarah Sundin recently unveiled the new cover for her upcoming book and it made me think about all the great covers that are out there.

Today I want to highlight some covers that have caught my attention. These are from Christian genres since that is where I spend much of my reading time.
