Don't Judge a Book by It's Cover
This saying holds new meaning to me after the book I just read. I have really started looking into the young adult section of the book store because I find the fantasy stories to be very entertaining. I really enjoyed the Twilight series so since then I've decided there may be even more that I would enjoy out there. So when I look on Amazon.com I look in the recommendation section and see what there is.
Now because I liked Twilight they have been recommending the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. The first book being City of Bones . Now the cover for the book does not appeal to me in the least. I'm a mom so I don't want to be purchasing a book that has a half naked guy on the cover with tattoos on him. So I've pushed it to the side. I honestly didn't see myself going up to the register with this book in my hand. I have a thing about book covers. Now to an adolescent girl I could see why this cover would draw you to the book, but I'm not an adolescent.
Well a few months ago my step dad gave me an Amazon Kindle that he won in a raffle. He thought I would really like it so he gave it to me because I love books so much. I'm always reading something. Well I love my Amazon Kindle for one thing I can download a book and no one knows what I'm reading. Also the books are a lot cheaper. So here I was wondering about City of Bones so I purchased it on my Kindle. Well I loved it. It was a great read. I didn't want to put it down.
It tells the story of Clary a girl who lives a rather normal life until she observes something by chance. She she's shadowhunters getting rid of a demon. Shadowhunters are demon hunters. Now I've always been a fan of Buffy type stories so this caught me right up. It turns out Clare is a Shadowhunter and she soon finds her world turned upside down by the discovery. There is adventure, romance and suspense exactly what I look for in a book. I highly recommend it.
My only problem is I wouldn't have bought the book because I didn't care for the cover. Let me just say I won't be fooled again. If a book is really being recommended and I don't care for the cover the heck with it. I'm not going to miss out on a good read just because of the cover. Now a suggestion I have to the publisher of these books is they may want to consider that older readers are now starting to pick up young adult books. They could either release two different covers or have a more neutral cover. Needless to say I've gotten over it myself, but how many others wouldn't pick up this book because of it's cover?
