Now we all love books which have pretty covers and add a lot of character to our bookshelves. A lot of times books which have an extremely grand cover, end up more or less disappointing us from their plot or story. But the exceptions? Oh god! They are the definition of perfection! Some of the most pretty books I have seen are simultaneously also the books which have the best storyline and keep me on my toes till the end. Let us see our top 5 picks for the same.
