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: Best cover? What is the best cover of a book that you've read and didn't like?
Isn't this over gorgeous? I actually bought this book from the bookstore, having no clue what it was about. All I knew was that the cover was really pretty, so the book had to be good too, right? Haha, no. The story ended up being so cliche, annoying, and oftentimes boring. I was so mad! A cover that pretty deserves a story that does it justice! When I see a pretty cover in the bookstore, I know I HAVE to have it on my bookshelf...
But once I read the book and it doesn't live up to the story inside, I just feel really disappointed and sad inside :(
But I can never get myself to get rid of the book because it's just so darn pretty! So covers mean a lot to me and even if the story's bad, it'll find it's way onto my shelf! I know you're not supposed to judge a book by it's cover, but I always do. And it may come back to bite me in the butt, but at least I have a pretty cover to look at on my book shelf :)
LOL- Loved your answer! No worries, you're not alone, I always judge a book by its cover! Old GFC Follower!ReplyDelete
Hahaha! Great retro Mary Kate/Ashley there. Sad to hear you didn't like the story.ReplyDelete

The cover really is pretty. I'm totally horrible and often choose books based on their covers too.ReplyDelete
hahaha your videos are so fitting to this post! I love it! I do this all the time too, a cover will be so gorgeous I won't even read the summary, I just know it has to be mine. Then it always seems that when I do read the book, the story never matches up! Its like Karma telling me to stop judging these books only by their covers. Still, I would probably have done the same thing if I'd seen this book in the store =)ReplyDelete

Haha, so disappointing. :(ReplyDelete
It is a gorgeous cover. I don't think I've heard of it before though.ReplyDelete
Have a good weekend!
That's a bummer. Doesn't look like a book I would read personally. Shame when a cover lets you down.ReplyDelete

I'm a bit ashamed to admit I always judge a book by it's cover. Speaking of which, I love Illuminated's cover. Must. Resist.ReplyDelete
Sydney @ Starry Storm
It's pretty indeed, but I heard a lot of negative things and I tend to stay away from it. I admit that I have made the same mistake in the past, but I'm a bit more careful now.ReplyDelete

Old follower; love your blog.
Here's my FF
I used to feel like that about pretty covers... that I needed them to 'beautify' my shelves. LOL. But to me sometimes the suckiness of the book is stronger than its beauty, so I trade them. :)ReplyDelete
thanks for stopping by!

That cover IS beautiful! I would have bought it for the cover too. :)ReplyDelete

Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. CheersReplyDelete
