Follow My Book Blog Friday (52)

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 :)

  3. The cover really is pretty. I'm totally horrible and often choose books based on their covers too.

  4. 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 =)

  5. It is a gorgeous cover. I don't think I've heard of it before though.

    Have a good weekend!

  6. That's a bummer. Doesn't look like a book I would read personally. Shame when a cover lets you down.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. Very pretty cover.

    Old follower; love your blog.

  11. 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. :)

    thanks for stopping by!

  12. A nice cover.

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

  19. 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.


  20. 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. Cheers
