Q: Best Cover? What is the best cover of a book that you’ve read and didn’t like?
A: Wow, there's a toughie.  I don't know why, maybe it's hardwired in my DNA, but I'm such a god awful non conformist that generally the books everyone loves and everyone reads, I can't stand worth a crap.  And generally the most popular books have the best covers.  Admittedly, I had to search for the right book.  My first thought was City of Bones by Cassandra Clare because I absolutely cannot stand the Mortal Instruments series, but while I thought the covers were nifty and clever, they aren't so hot.  Then I remembered this book, and it's a shoe-in for my answer: it's a great cover that I've always liked, but I hate the book (and the series).
