Book Blogger Hop (No.3) & Recap

Book Blogger Hop

Alrighty bloggers!! We all know what time it is! It's time for the book blogger hop hosted by Jennifer over at CrazyforBooks.com. So click on the button above to take you over to her site and lets get a hoppin'.

This weeks questions is:
Do you judge a book by it's cover?

Jen:
Sadly to say, I most definitely do. That is to say that I pick the covers off the shelf that I love. I don't read a ton of books with horrible covers and it truly and most definitely would deter me if I saw one with a horrible cover. I know, I know, that is like against the law or something in the book world, but publishers should know this when they publish books. PEOPLE JUDGE BOOKS BY THEIR COVERS. Its just the way it is. However, all that being said, if a book has a horrible cover but I here it's excellent I would probably read it. I'm not that horrible *laughs maliciously*

Well, not horrible as far as books are concerned. *grins*

Now that Jen is off poking around in my yummy homemade cheesecake I can take a stab at the question on hand.


Do you judge a book by its cover?


*Crosses Legs* Oh, my. It is such a personal question. Between us, I must admit that my mind sends messages to my hands about how interesting, beautiful, or simple the cover is. Lets be clear. I do tend to judge a book by its cover. I hardly ever read the synopsis, scratch that. I NEVER read the synopsis, I like to enjoy a book for every word without knowing some of the plot. I pick up a book because of word of mouth goodness has been passed to sugar up a book, I read other blog reviews by you that point me in the good direction or I most defiantely pick a book by its cover. Many times these methods have not let me down. Although, my worst case read because of beautiful cover art has been Fallen by Lauren Kate.
Just look at that cover! It is beautiful! Creepy, Dark, Gothic, Hot Dress, and the Face is Hidden. The cover has everything! The words not so much. Despite that fact it sits on my shelf. I cannot bare to part with this awful book because the cover is so macliously wonderful. It is even soft to the touch with a velvety glide. *prrr*

No matter how you like your cover I do perfer you have a wonderful read in your hands!

We've been covering our overly sexy heroines. *purrs*
Yes....that is correct....we are looking at our tough hottie females who come out to create mischief and mayhem. That, and possibly kill some bad guys in the process.

So, this weeks hottie heroine is also a chain whip welding demon hunter
*drum roll*
