  2. Hi Christy! My name is Lea and this is my first time participating in Follow Me Friday :)

    I just started book-blogging a couple weeks ago and am already totally addicted to it! It's so much fun meeting new people who love reading and reviewing as much as I do. I am now a follower!

    Hope you have a great weekend and happy reading! Hope to see you stop by my corner sometime! :P

  3. It breaks my heart when a great book has an ugly cover. Totally breaks my heart - they are definitely out there.

  4. Hi hi! Old follower just stopping by for the hop. I, too, judge a book by its cover. I think almost everyone does! And if they don't think they do, they probably do subconciously lol. :)

    Anyway, I hope you're doing well and if you have some time, stop by my blog and read some of my recent reviews! I haven't been getting that many comments lately and it's THE SADNESS! Help me out lol. Thanks! *hugs*

  5. It's hard not to judge a book by it's cover. That's why covers are so important. Thank goodness we have blogs to tell us about the awful covers that are great books!! Happy reading!

  6. Hey Christy! Thanks for stopping by. I really need to start the feature again, it was a lot of fun. Maybe I can start it again and make it more interactive...hmmm. Love when people get me thinking on new ideas! :)

  7. Hopping through. I agree that not so great covers can make great books - like Anna and the French Kiss.

  10. I totally judge a book by its cover and I'm not ashamed to admit it. LOL!

    I'm going to be following your blog, please stop by mine and say hi!

  11. Yes, I surely do judge a book by the cover. Not always but more often then not. I'm known for not reading synopsis so if your cover doesn't show me what I want to know or if someone doesn't recommend it... chances are I'm reading someone else's book.

    Please do stop by for a crumpet, find out about a new MeMe & to check out my newest giveaway :)

  14. Hey Im a new follower. I love pretty covers :)
    Hope you have a great weekend.

    Come visit my blog if you have time.

  15. I hate when ugly books have bad covers but when books are on your bookshelf, you can only see the spine anyway. Plus, if I get a book on my reader, I don't see it much if at all.

  16. Hi! I love looking at beautiful covers. ;)

    Happy Friday!

  17. Yup!! there are many books which dont really have great covers but are really enjoyable.
    My FF-

  18. I agree about the book covers!

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  19. Hi Christy! Thanks for visiting Hands and Home and for following. I am following you back - you have a lovely blog! Have a great weekend and happy reading!

  20. Definitely agree with you there! I've read books where I wasn't totally WOWed with the cover, but loved the book itself!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Jessica@a GREAT read

  21. My apologies if this is a duplicate comment! Thanks for visiting Hands and Home and for following. I am following you back - you have a lovely blog! Great answer to this weeks question.

  22. I love gorgeous covers, too. It makes me just want to sit, hold, and stare... :)

  23. Seems like everyone is a cover lover! :) Pretty covers just make books more appealing to me or creepy covers. I am so obsessed with the Anna Dressed in Blood cover. It is so creepy!

  24. Hi Christy! New follower for both here and on Networked blogs!

    For me, it is the cover and the title that tempt me to read the blurb. If the blurb reads great, I'll grab the book. I remember the first time I saw Harry Potter's book covers, I was like, O_o...not sure if I liked them. Love the inside but the covers weren't really to my taste.
    Happy Follow Friday!!!

    I'm a new follower, and invite you to check out my sites and follow me as well.

  26. I love your header! I wish I could make something like yours for my blog haha :D

  27. I proudly judge a book by its cover, especially when I'm at the bookstore! I can't help it...I've been known to pass on a book if the cover is extremely ugly..haha

    Here's my My Follow Friday

  28. The cover attracts you to the book.

    stop and see mine and my giveaways.

  29. Hello there! Just hopping through here. :D You have a really nice blog.

    I also go after cover in most cases. At least while searching for a new one. Wouldn't buy a pretty book without thinking I'd like the story though!

    My FF can be found here!

    Btw, I'm a new follower!

  30. New Follower hopping by, I am a sucker for a pretty cover. If it has a pretty cover an the back of the book interests me I'm sold. Happy Reading =o)

  31. I agree! Not everyone is able to get a great illustrator! I'm already a follower. My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews

  32. Thx for stopping by! I'm guilty of the same thing...I've always judged by the look first, content second.


  33. Hi-I am happy we are mutual followers now.

  34. Hiya!
    I know there are some great books out there hidden behind not so great covers, but I love beautiful covers, that's what catches my eye in the first place!

    Have a nice weekend!xoxo

    New follower, Deea @ Deea's Journal

  35. I feel the same. And some books with great covers end up being not as good as the ones without. It can go either way.

    Happy reading :-)

  36. New follower! I always judge a book by it's cover! I can't help it; I'm superficial like that, haha :) But a book is a book no matter what! Have a happy weekend!

    Have a good weekend!
