Book Blogger Hop

Do you judge a book by its cover?

Yes.  If I go into a legit bookstore with new books and beautiful covers, I could spend 2 hours oohing and ahhing over the books.  That said, if someone says a book with an ugly cover is great or vice versa, I will definitely listen to their opinion.

Great books with unattractive (to me) covers:

A book about an old man?  No thanks.
I love pink, but seriously.  This looks kind of cheap and garbage-y.

Not-so-great books with attractive covers:

I hated this book.  But pink and green are my school colors, so I paid like 18 bucks or whatever for this stupid book.

DIAMONDS? I LOVE DIAMONDS!  Unfortunately, this is like the most boring chicklit ever.


  1. Hi there!

    Just hopping over via hop! I love your blog design it's so pretty! I'm sure to stop over some other time! Have a great weekend and happy reading!

    Til next time,

  2. A good cover is a great way to grab a reader's initial attention, but it's what's inside that gets us to buy it. I might pick up a book based on the cover, but I always leaf through and read a few pages before I decide to buy it. That being said - a pretty, shiny cover can definitely have me drooling. :)

  3. Loved the display of winners and losers for book covers. Still laughing and thinking girl you are SOOOOOOOOOOOOO RIGHT!

    I am a COVERHOLIC and so I've bought books for the shelves just to stare at them. Bad bad bad PK. Will have to convince hubby that they came from Book Fairy, a good looking book fairy ;P

    Have a great weekend and keep writing since your humour flair is PERFECT!

  4. Hopping by - just read some of your posts and I really like your insights. I'm following now!

  5. I agree - the brick and mortar stores make it hard not to judge by the cover, but a great review makes all the difference! I agree about all those covers you listed. Not a big fan of Prep though, lol.

    Stopping by on the hop! Happy Friday =)

  6. I'm an old follower hopping through. Great post, showing us some things you loved with bad covers and others you hated with good ones. I also judge books by their covers but will read books with bad covers.
