Q: Have you ever looked at book's cover and thought, This is going to horrible? But, was instead pleasantly surprised? Show us the cover and tell us about the book.Hmm. This is a very hard question because I do not usually try to remember the books with covers I do not like. But here are some that I felt like the cover did not really tell me much about the book:
