Follow Friday (4/9)

Happy Follow Friday everyone!

Let's get this party started!

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Rachel @ Parajunkee's View. Head on over her blog and join the fun, share the love and meet some new blogger friends!

This week's feature is Lesley from My keeper shelf - check up her blog!

And this week's question: Do you judge a book by it's cover?
Well yes, don't we all love pretty covers?:D
Don't get me wrong, it's not the cover what makes me buy a book, (I've read some great books I didn't like the covers of at all), but I'll always check up a book with a beautiful cover - if the synopsis sounds interesting and/or I happen to read good reviews of it, I'll definitely pick it up! 

The artist in me loooves having books with pretty covers showing off on my bookshelves, so here are some books I made room for (books coming out soon):

See you around and... happy weekend!


  1. I love pretty covers! But have learned to give books without nice covers a chance too! I'm a new follower. http://www.coffeetablereviews.net/2011/04/friday-follow-10.html

  2. I'm a sucker for pretty covers! If it's an author I like I generally like the cover, but I do love finding new authors and sometimes it is because the cover is very compelling. That and there are a good slew of reviews!!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  6. 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!?

  7. You and I are like minded!

    I think it's human nature to be drawn to pretty things and it effects every aspect of our lives whether it's our favorite 'pretty' flower, dress, piece of furniture, etc...

    To buy a book because the covers pretty without reading the synopsis is pretty brave! I personally don't have the money for such bravery :o] I'd rather read the synopsis and find out if the book itself piques my interests. I also go by my fellow bloggers recommendations, reviews, etc... my favorite authors play a big part,too.

    I'm glad you stopped by to see me today!

    Have a great weekend!

  8. I love pretty covers!! I always check out the summaries and reviews before I buy though. My book budget is small, so I have to shop wisely!

    Thanks for stopping by! I'm an old follower!

  9. I think we all judge a book, whether we want to or not. As long as there are words to paint a new world for me I'm happy.

    New Follower :)

    Please Stop by, I'm starting a new with a fresh look.  Let me know what you think.

  10. I love pretty covers too! I just love a pretty book to hold while I'm reading and to sit on my shelf to look at when I'm done.

    If I don't like the cover I usually still read it, but i check it out at the library instead of buying.

  11. Thank you all for stopping by! I love all your comments! *blows kisses*

    So... bottom line... we all love pretty covers, but we also need a catchy synopsis and good recommendations before buying a book. Great!:D

    @Amanda I'll read them as soon as I get my TBR pile under control, I've been trying to do so for ages!:))

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  13. HI...

    Thanks so much for stopping by my home..

    Yea, pretty covers can make the book better to the eye but.... haven't you ever read one that had a pretty cover and wasn't all that great?



Thanks for stopping by! I love comments! ♥
