Book Blogger Hop: Would you or do you choose a book solely on the cover?


About The Meme
The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer's permission, it was relaunched by The Coffee Addicted Writer on February 15, 2013.

Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. 
There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog. 


Would you or do you choose a book solely on the cover?




I know, I know!
You should never judge a book by its cover but sometimes I do and I'm not sorry!

This has resulted in buying some awful books (but with pretty pretty covers!) and it has resulted in my buying some pretty awesome books (with pretty pretty covers).

It also means that sometimes I miss absolute gems of books because their covers are ugly.

There are just so many books!
You can't read the descriptions of them all, something has to catch your attention and for me, it's definitely the cover and sometimes the cover is convincing enough on its own that I listen to it and buy the book everything else be damned.

What about you?

  1. Never! A pretty cover might persuade me to look at the blurb, but I'll only read or buy if the blurb interests me. I don't have money to waste on buying books I'll never read because the cover looks nice!

  2. Pretty much the same on this front.

    There are way too many books out there, something has to draw me in.

  3. Honestly, there's some books that look too good to pass up and they turn out to be amazing!!

  4. I tend to buy a book based on the synopsis. Great answer!

  6. As with most of us, the cover is definitely what attracts me in the first instance but I always read the blurb too. 😉

  7. I have a couple of times just bought a book for a cover because I wanted it on my bookshelf.
