Follow My Blog Friday

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View.
           My answer to this week's Follow Friday question:

Q. Do you judge a book by it's cover?

I try not to judge books by their covers, but I will admit a pretty or interesting cover helps.  If I like the look of a cover, I'll often read the back or inside flap then to see if it would be something I'd enjoy.  If a book doesn't have an interesting cover, but I've heard great things about it I'll still pick it up.  For instance, I don't like the covers of the Vampire Academy series but I've read great reviews of the books so I started reading the series...and I loved it.

  1. That is a goood answer! I respect my fellow bloggers and friends opinions greatly, so if the cover is fab and I've heard goo things about it I'd buy it.

  2. I didn't care for the VA series covers either. They seemed too day time soapish for me. But loved the books! I'm a new follower. My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews

  3. I don't like the cover either. I think everyone judges books by there cover a bit. I agree that it is the inside flap or back cover that really does it for me.

  4. VA is a great example - I avoided them for awhile because their covers did nothing for me, but after reading some awesome reviews I finally read them and loved them!

  5. I think we can all agree that even the most beautiful book cover can't sell a book if the writing's not there. Book cover art may, at best, help steer me in the book's direction (especially if I'm in a book store) but it's not going to hypnotize me into buying it right then and there.

    I expound on all the marketing qualities of a good book. Just follow me back to my book blog -

    Thank God it's Follow Friday!?

  6. I talked about this book too! I always judge a book by it's cover! I can't help it; I'm superficial like that, haha :) But a book is a book no matter what! Have a happy weekend!

  8. I try not to. There are so many good books out there with not so good covers... Like VA. I didn't like the cover that much either, but I did like the book. There are also awesome covers, but not so good books.

    Many times, I'll look at the back of the book first so I'm not influenced by the front cover.



I love love love hearing your wonderful thoughts! Thanks for stopping by and happy reading.
