Top Ten Tuesday: Looks can be deceiving!

 A feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This weeks topic: Top Ten Books That Were Totally Deceiving (those covers or titles that don't fit the books, a book that was totally different than its summary, or those books you thought were going to be fluff that turned out to be more serious etc etc.)
  1. : What a gorgeous cover! I absolutely despised the ending of this book, which pretty much ruined the entire story.
  2. The  Extraordinary Secrets of April, May & June by Robin Benway : I found this cover to be okay, but really enjoyed the book!
  3. The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade: I really disliked this cover. It seemed rather juvenile, but the story rocked!
  4. Ice by Sarah Beth Durst: I found this cover to be gorgeous, but was disappointed story-wise.
  5. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins: I held off on reading this because I found the cover (and title) to be a little immature. The story itself was fabulous!
  6. The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney: This cover is shown below. Gorgeous, right? I definitely found the story to be sub-par.
  7. All These Things I've Done (Birthright #1) by Gabrielle Zevin: I held off reading this book because I thought it was a self help book for teens! I loooooved the story!
  8. Legend by Marie Lu: I fiiiiinally picked this up as an audiobook for my trip up north this past Easter weekend. The cover just looks so blah, but I am totally loving the story so far! :)

 So, what book covers have you found to be deceiving?
