Book Blogger Hop!

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer @ Crazy for Books.Stop by and get hopping!

This week's question:
Do you judge a book by its cover?
Yes, actually, I do. Now I've read my share of "beautiful on the inside books" (I just finished one, as a matter of fact) but having pretty cover designs is what draws my attention to books, a lot of times. It's what makes me notice them in the first place.

In fact, take a look at my last post - I listed a few lucky debut authors whose books got the royal cover treatment!

Be sure to leave your link, too, so I can return the hop!

Hi :) First off, I love you header and the quote. I'm guilty of overlooking books simply because they don't use bold covers. I'm trying hard now to look a little closer. Hope you have a fun weekend and I'm a new follower !!

Hope you Hop by my site

Just hopping by to say have a great weekend. I also judge a book by its cover, I think it's impossible not to.

Just found you via the Hop and am loving your layout. Off to read some of your reviews!

Hopping through. I look at covers carefully. Sometimes my favorite covers though are simple ones that others may not appreciate as much. I loved the hardback If I Stay Cover and the cover for North of Beautiful.

Hi Amelia, thanks for hopping by :)

I'm so happy you liked my blog and its design! :D It took me three days to fix up the HTML. So frustrating... :(

Deepali said...

Hi! Great post on the cover art , you really picked out some pretty good looking ones. I had no idea some of those were even for Debut authors :)
I ALSO have my last post being relevant to the question from this time's hop - the making of the cover for the latest Parasol Protectorate novel.
Let me know what you think!

Beautiful follower.

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.
