Book Blogger Hop + Follow Friday (6)

12:34 AM

Follow Friday and Book Blogger Hop are weekly events hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee and Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books respectively. 



This week's question is: Do you judge a book by its cover?

Yes, that would be me. Guilty as charged.
I know, I know...they say don't judge a book by its cover but I can't help myself.  

Covers that are beautiful, eye-catching, or however else they stand out, draw me in so much quicker than a more boring, average cover. It's a good thing the covers that I usually fall in love with have turned out to be books that I've also enjoyed! Some of my favourite covers include Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick, Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare, Halo by Alexandra Adornetto, Clarity by Kim Harrington, and Hexbound by Chloe Neill- and this is an extremely small list that I'm thinking off the top of my head right now! 

I'm going to also point out though, it's pretty easy for me to feel the cover love!! As well, don't think I solely just a book by the cover only- I also make sure the plot description interests me in some way too.

But also sadly, covers can also be misleading on both parts. I've read books where their covers are better than the novel itself (that does happen too often at least...) and I've also almost passed on books sometimes after deeming the covers to be rather boring or looking like it wouldn't be the sort of novel I'd want to read. 

What about YOU? Do you tend to judge a book by its cover too?

Well, I'm off to do some blog hopping! *hops away*

  2. Stopping by from the Hop! Cute blog. :]

    I'm the same way - a cover totally has to catch my eye before I check out a book.

    Have a good weekend!

  7. Hi :) I'm a sucker for color. For example, if I lined up blog headers and had to pick who'd visit solely on them, I'd pick yours because of the reddy pink colored flower. I'm very visual. Hope you have a great weekend !!
    Hope you Hop by my site

  14. Hi Liz, just hopping by! I too am guilty of skimming over books with covers that aren't so appealing and making a beeline for the ones with really gorgeous covers. But, the description is really what's the most important to me and if that doesn't interest me, then it doesn't really matter to me how nice the cover is!

  15. Hopping through. The Mortal Instruments definitely have great covers. I like Libba Bray's covers too - since that's a trilogy as well.

  18. Hey There! Im a new follower hopping by. I too love cover design, and I also realize I gravite toward different "feels" of books too. Some covers have textures that are distracing or irritating, taking away from the reading experience. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
    Smiles!

  22. First-time visitor...lovely blog.

    I do pick up a book because of its cover...not necessarily buy it, but it does make me pick it up and check it out.

    Hopping by.
