Chosen by Chandra Hoffman Chosen cover

Hoffman's debut novel Chosen explores the side of adoption that isn't often talked about – the dark side. The selfish, the greedy, the inexcusable side of what families will do to adopt – and what lengths birth parents will go to when giving up a baby. The cover is adorable yet gripping with the little hand clutching the adult finger. Chosen will make readers think, feel and talk about this contemporary tale.

Thanks Stephanie and Laura! And Susan, it was really hard to pick just five! There's so many more that made my list as well :)

sorry I don't agree with you, the best book cover I think is Kitchen's Daughter by Jael McHenry.

One Moment, One Morning looks like Val Frankel's Four of a Kind. Well, actually, Val's looks like Sarah's book, since Val's isn't officially out yet! And I LOOOOVE Camille's book The Art of Forgetting, but I have to say that I almost didn't read it because I'm not a fan of ballet, although the cover is STUNNING! I discussed this with her too. The soft cover is MUCH different -- check it out on amazon. Great round up of some gorgeous covers!

Great choices Samantha! One Moment, One Morning by Sarah Rayner's cover is STUNNING. It makes me want to grab a cup of tea and sit and read it all in one go.
