Books That Look Good Naked

August 9, 2019

When you get a new book, do you take a look under the jacket to see if there’s anything special inside, or do you religiously protect your books with their jackets? A lot of books have gorgeous jackets that dress up a very plain, bare book, but every now and then, you’ll find that one rare book with an incredible surprise under the jacket. Here’s a list of books that look just as good (if not better) naked.

Books That Look Good Naked

1. Permanent Record by Mary H.K. Choi

This jacket is only a partial cover—it’s hiding a whole new image underneath!

2. Angel Thieves by Kathi Appelt

We love this creative hidden image under the Angel Thieves jacket.

3. Sky Without Stars by Jessica Brody

In this epic reimagining of the King Arthur legend, Nimue (pronounced Nim-way) is determined to fulfill her mother’s dying wish by delivering the Sword of Power to the legendary magician, Merlin.

5. The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

It starts as a low croon that rolls in with the tide, a sound so faint it might just be the wind blowing through the clapboard shutters, through the portholes of docked fishing boats, and into narrow cracks along sagging doorways. But after the first night, the harmony of voices become undeniable. An enchanting hymn sailing over the water’s surface, cool and soft and alluring. The Swan sisters have awakened.

Happy Tuesday #bookworms I’m not gonna complain about the weather we have right now as it’s lovely. But it’s also so freaking hot. Especially in the sun. Haven’t seen rain for about 2 weeks. It’s like we are living in a country closer to the equator. _____________ May 29: #rfabmay18 — “auto buy author” — Cassandra Clare is one of my auto buy authors. I have read everything she has published and I’m not even sorry. I even buy old books who have a new cover, just because I hope there will be something extra written by Cassie in the book. I probably will continue to buy all her books until she stops writing them. Here’s to hoping that day is years away. #maybookstagram18 — “Chosen one or Lost Princess” — I think I like Chosen one more than lost princess. Somehow the concept of being destined for something is way more interesting to read about than having to save the lost princess. ______________ #books #cassandraclare #cassandraclarebooks #shadowhunters #themortalinstruments #themortalinstrumentsfandom #fandom #bookcover #bookcoverlove #bookporn #bookcoverporn #openbook #cityofbones #ladymidnight #cityofbones10thanniversary #bookish #booklover #bookreader #bookaddict #booknerdigans #bookphotography #bibliophile #autobuyauthors #autobuyauthor #maybookstagramchallenge #bookstagram

This anniversary edition doesn’t even come with a jacket. It’s so gorgeous naked, it doesn’t need one!
