6 Hilarious Book Covers That Make…Absolutely No Sense

The age old phrase “don’t judge a book by its cover” should not be applied in the case of these six books, because we are all confused as hell. When looking at a book cover, for the most part you could tell what to expect. You take the title, you take the cover and boom: you’ve got a good idea. Then there’s always those few.

 

Those moments when you look at a cover, read the back synopsis, and look back at the cover thinking ‘what the frick frack?’ Some images just don’t correlate with the story. This happens even for the classics. Here are the books that didn’t quite match up with their quirky book covers:
