Time To Do The Hop!

Book Blogger Hop

Another week, another Book Blogger Hop hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books.

The questions this week: Do you judge a book by its cover? My answer: well, yes and no. If I’m browsing in a bookstore or online, then an interesting cover will definitely catch my attention. Will I buy the book because of the cover? No. I always read the synopsis first and often the first page or two. If I see a book by an author I’ve already read, I’ll pick it up even if it has a terrible cover. I think, however, if you want to get new readers, an enticing cover is important.

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment below and I’ll return the visit.


  1. Hi :) I'm the same. Where the cover might be what causes me to pick the book up, it's the blurb that determines whether I buy it. Hope you enjoy your weekend !!
    Here's my Hop

  2. here from the hop. . . you're both much smarter than me! but I've been trying to get better. recently I read two incredible books that both had cheesy titles and cheesy cover art. That'll teach me, they were 2 of the best books I've read this year!

  3. Found you through the hop, now following!

  4. Visiting from the HOP! Sounds like my tactic with covers.

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

    Have a great weekend!

  5. I confess that book covers do have a certain appeal, but it's the synopsis that makes or breaks my decision to purchase it.

    I recall one book whose cover pulled me in immediately: Varjak Paw. I purchased it on a whim after seeing the lovely cover, and it was a great investment!

  6. I too sometimes fall for covers!
