We've all been there: judge a book by its cover and end up severely disappointed.
So these are the five books that have disappointed me most, and have the most beautiful covers in the history of ever.
5) The Beautiful Dead series by Eden Maguire
Okay, this might be cheating because there are four books (and I also really don't like the cover of the fourth book, 'Phoenix') but this entire series has beautiful covers but is a massive pile of suck. I don't know why I read all four, because once you've read the first one it's just a regurgitated plot: there's a ghost whose death needs to be avenged so they can pass on to the other side. Nothing revolutionary here.
4) 'Marly's Ghost' by David Levithan
A word-for-word retelling of 'A Christmas Carol', but with all of the Christmas references changed to Valentine's references, and Tiny Tim becoming a gay couple. There isn't much creativity in a word-for-word retelling of a book, but the cover is so stunningly beautiful.
3) 'Only We Know' by Simon Packham
2) 'The Fault In Our Stars' by John Green
It's so pretty, but it's so BAD.
1) 'Severed Heads, Broken Hearts'/'The Beginning of Everything' by Robyn Schneider
For a book to have a spectacularly gorgeous cover both in the UK and the US, you think it's going to be revolutionary. Alas, I despised this novel. I really wish I'd been blogging back when I read it, because I remember having so many reasons that I hated it - I've actually bought it and am going to reread, just to see if it's as annoying the second time around.
I hope you enjoyed this Top Five Wednesday! What covers do you love that have super disappointing content?
