Book Blogger Hop 9/3

Book Blogger Hop


Each weekend, Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books hosts the Book Blogger Hop. It is a great way for book lovers and book bloggers to find new book blogs and get to know each other.

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

Yes, I know I do.  Most often when I am just randomly browsing online or in a bookstore with no idea of what I'm really looking for.  Then covers do have an enormous impact.  A cover can catch my eye in a positive or negative way and this has the most influence when the author is one I am unfamiliar with.  If it is an author I already know and love, I might roll my eyes if they get a bad cover but it isn't going to stop me from reading the book.

If you have hopped over from the Mr. Linky, Welcome!  I hope you will stay a bit and look around. I review a wide range of books including (but not limited to!) urban fantasy, young adult, contemporary fiction, historical fiction, chic lit, cozy mystery, and some non-fiction.  I love getting comments so please let me know you stopped by!

  8. Yes, I do judge books by their covers. At least at first. I try a little of the text and then I decide if I want to venture in.

  13. Hi I am visiting from the HOP! I love your photo! I am the same way with the book covers. They can grab me but not send me away from one I am set on reading.

    I would love for you to say Happy Birthday to my daughter who just started a blog - today on her birthday...
    Outpourings Of A Soul. She has read quite a few of the Cat Who books.

    I hope you will have time to visit one or both of my blogs: LibrarysCat and Never Forget !!

    Have a great weekend!
