This is a meme hosted every Friday by Parajunkee, where book bloggers answer a question each week and check out how others answered it. It's a cool way for bloggers and viewers to connect and learn more about each other!
Question: Worst cover? What's the worst cover of a book that you've read and loved?
Answer: I'm a sucker for a good book cover, so if it looks good, I'm bound to read it. If it doesn't look good, though, I'm really hesitant to pick it up. I haven't exactly read and loved a book with an awful cover, but I've gotten an edition that wasn't as good as another edition that's out there in the world. Here are a few examples:
I'm really not a fan of the first cover, which is the cover I ended up getting from the library. The second cover is so much prettier and really captures what the book is about. And this book was awesome, so I think people would be more likely to pick up the second cover over the first one.
I REALLY dislike the original covers of the Sookie Stackhouse books. I don't know why, they just look really weird and I would not be drawn to it if I ever saw it in a bookstore. I think the cover from the TV series is so cool and I would pick it up in a heartbeat.
And those are the only books I can think of! Like I said, if I ever see a book cover that is really offer, I will most likely not pick it up....
Covers are just as important as the stories themselves and I like to dedicate my time to the ones that intrigue me the most :) Hope you all have an awesome weekend!
