Friday Blog Hops

It's Friday! Friday, Friday... *hears groans* Okay, I'll stop now. I'm just in an awesome mood because it's a gorgeous day today!! :) Now, on with the hopping!







Follow my book blog Friday is hosted at Parajunkee's View. This hop is all about sharing the follow love, discovering new blogs and answering cool bookish questions. Every week there's a featured blogger. This week the featured blogger is My Keeper Shelf so don't forget to comment and visit her blog! This week's question is... 

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

My answer is... Yes. Well, kinda. I decide to pick up a book by it's cover. Usually covers reveal a ton about a book and a pretty cover makes me excited for a book. That doesn't mean I only read books with pretty covers. If I find a cover iffy, I always check the summary. Usually that helps. I like pretty things. My first impression of a book is it's cover so obviously it will be a better impression if I like the cover. What do you think?

Anyway, it's been a good week. Spring is finally arriving! I'd also like to say a huge welcome to everyone visiting and leave a comment! I like to know who's taken the time to visit and to return that favour. Happy hopping! Hope y'all have a great weekend!

Also, please vote for your favourite cover on the poll to the right! Hades or Illusions? I'm just interested in your opinion.

  4. 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 - http://www.howardsherman.net

    Thank God it's Follow Friday!?

  5. I agree with you completely! A nice cover is fantastic- but if the summary sounds awful, then who cares right? But, eye candy always helps! :)

  7. I also judge a book by the cover. At first glance. That's how I get interested and want to know more! When choosing though, it's the description and storyline that makes the final decision! :)

  8. I often judge books by their covers. Sometimes I'm right and sometimes I'm wrong, but I have found some great books via their cover.
