Blog Hop (6)

Book Blogger Hop

Hey fellow bloggers and/or readers,

Thanks for hopping along to my little blog. :) Hope you enjoy your visit, and like what you see. If you do, feel free to follow. It's free!

If you'd like to hop around, too, then visit Jennifer at Crazy for Books for all the details!

Here's this week's question:

Do you judge a book by its cover?
Honestly, yes. I can say that most of the books I have read recently have been *blessed* with pretty covers. I'm not the only one out there, I'm sure. They're definitely important in order to draw in potential readers. However, in the way of ARCs and review copies, covers don't play such a big part in this, especially since many ARC covers are not finalised.

I usually browse titles on Goodreads, and if a cover catches my eye, I'll check out reviews & ratings as well as the description. So, a cover is really important, as it is what will make me find out more about the book.

Ooh, I'm also going to be reviewing The Poison Diaries this month. I'll be very curious to see what your thoughts on it were. Oh, and I have yet to come across a book lover who doesn't judge a book by its cover. :)

Yeah, I look at the cover.

I tend to gravitate to books based on their titles and pictures first. Then I read the back covers and make a choice... Have a safe weekend!
