Musing Mondays - Book Covers Revisited!

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about book covers (again)…

As a follow up to last week’s question, Melody asked about when book covers do not match the story. Do you feel disappointed when the cover’s don’t match the story? Have you ever been completely misled by a book cover?

My answer:

Sure, I've been disappointed by covers especially when they don't get the basics right - such things as hair color. That drives me crazy. I can't remember specific covers, but the wrong hair color bothers me. The other thing is when they go on and on about a character being overweight, then the cover shows them as very thin.

These are little things, I guess, but it's annoying. I think they should be able to get the covers as close as possible to the way they are described in the book.
