Blog Hop and Giveaway!(9)

cfb_meme_button It’s time for another BLOG HOP! The Blog Hop is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Jessica at Crazy-for-Books! For more information on The Blog Hop head over to her blog.

Question of the Week:

Do you judge a book by it’s cover?

Hmm, I’m going to be completely honest here and say, Yes I absolutely do judge books by their covers sometimes. The cover is a very important part of the book for me. It gives me a little hint as to what to except. It gets me excited to see the story behind the image! Covers can make or break a book I believe. Will you pick up and read the back of the book with the pretty, mysterious, shiny cover or the dull one with some writing on the front? I’m a total cover whole and I’m proud to admit it! (It’s also one of the reasons I love to recreate covers. Making something pretty for a even more pretty story inside is very rewarding!)

Hi, Caitlin!

Just hopping by! I'm already a follower of your blog. I agree that cover is an important part of the book. It's like giving a visual representation of what's inside. :)

Cheers!

Hi :) I love books that use bold colors and most times over look the dull covers. Same with books that have pictures. If it just has writing, it would need a pretty good blurb for me to consider buying it. Hope you enjoy your weekend :)
Hope you Hop by my site

Hopping by your blog and I love it! I'm a new follower. I think most people judge the book by the cover at least a little bit. I know I do.

Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog Caitlin. Your layout is lovely, it's fanastic that you won the blog makeover and I like the little personalisations og the bat and ball in your header.
I agree, covers can make or break a book.

Enjoy your weekend, I'm a new follower!

Hi there! I like pretty covers, too. They do give you a hint of what to expect. (Although it does drive me nuts when I've read the book and realize that the cover doesn't accurately reflect the characters or the story.)

pussreboots said...

Happy Friday. Yes I judge books by their covers.

Susan said...

Just found you via the Hop. I'm really enjoying your blog!

I like me a happy ending, but I don't want it to come too easily, you know? I want to worry that the story's NOT going to end happily. If a book wraps up too easily, it leaves me feeling disappointed.

Alison said...

Hopping through. Already a follower. I like happy endings - I prefer them. But I like an unhappy ending that makes me think. Or a bittersweet one.

I too love a good cover. It always the first thing to catch my eye! Second is the title, third is the "feel" of the book. Some cover textures are distracting! Hope you are having a great weekend!

Elizabeth said...

Back again...love your design and header.

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.
