Book Blogger Hop (5): September 3-6, 2010

The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy For Books. The whole idea behind it is to link up your blog and check out others who did the same!

For those of you stopping by from the Hop, I want to say welcome!

Feel free to have a look around my site. I'm 23 year old aspiring novelist and on this site, it's all about YA, writing, and movies! I'm really big into following people and (since I have a lot of free time currently) I'm always reading posts and commenting! I can't wait to meet you all!
 
This week's question is:


Do you judge a book by its cover?
Heck yes, I judge a book by its cover! I have whole posts devoted to Cover Envy where I share what books I'm excited about based on their covers. Nothing makes me stop for a book more than its cover. It's your first impression. However, I will read books with bad covers just to see if I'm missing anything and beautiful covers can disappoint. The wonderful thing about YA right now is that there are a lot of books with beautiful, inventive covers! Some covers I'm in love with:

A couple things to look out for:
  • When I get 100 followers, I will be hosting a 100 Follower Giveaway and the winner will get a SIGNED copy of City Of Glass by Cassandra Clare. There will be a few other prizes announced when the post goes up! Help me get there!

  23. Hurricane- Two months? Did you live on a hidden street or Down the rabbit hole? Could the electric company not find you? My God, Florida without power for that long, I'd have to find somewhere else to live. My dogs would die. You are a trooper. Thanks for your concern. I'm going to read your interview now.

  29. Yes, I do judge the book by its cover. There are just so many wonderful covers out there not to analyze. Don't you love/hate it when a cover has, like, zilch to do with the novel?

  41. Thank you for stopping by! It's true that covers are what lure us in, but after that it's up to the author to keep us there! Covers aren't everything, but they do mean something.
    Have a great day!

Thinking of writing something below? Well, that's why you are awesome! I always love feedback!

This blog is an award free zone. With the demand of a full time job, blogging time is becoming much more precious and I just don't have the time to meet the demands of awards. Thanks so much for thinking of me anyway!
