I must admit that I often do judge a book by its cover (I know that what's inside counts, but I like my books to be pretty too, haha) and I am especially fond of illustrated cover designs which you often find with cozy mysteries of chick-lit (like the ones above actually).
I confess. I do! But I've also picked up great books that had the worst covers. I'm drawn to cozy mystery covers, creepy covers, and whimsical ones that just intrigue me.
When you want to lose yourself for a couple of hours, read the books written by these two fabulous authors. Real life is not as fun as the stories in their books.
I sure do. :-P But I also consider the author and the blurb, but the first thing that catches my eye is the cover. I love pretty covers, usually with a couple, I love romances. But depends on the book and the vibe of it.
I always pay attention to book covers, apart form the blurb, it's what draws my attention to a book. I like covers with eye catching colours, bold text and a strong background.
I admit I do tend to be attracted by the covers. Although authors and recommendations also come into it. I am attracted to light flowery cover or beach themes. I am not so keen on dark covers.
Sometimes I judge a book by its cover when browsing in a bookstore, but I read the book blurb before making a purchase. I like a variety of covers including bold colors and romantic themes.
A cover can attract me but I always read the back of the book to see if I want to read it. I like colourful covers
Cover design is what draws us to a particular book over another. My favourite designs are dark, stark & sinister, much like the novels themselves!
Well yes, I do love a good cover so the answer is YES sometimes I do judge a book by it's cover
I do look at covers. They have to catch the eye.
Agree with Kate Sarsfield, the cover draws your attention, the title is secondary. An interesting cover design will make you read the blurb on the back cover.
I quite often judge a book by it's cover, I usually go for books that have a dark mysterious cover.
I love book covers, some artwork is amazing! Sometimes a books cover is so eye catching that I have to buy it and read it.
it happens a cover can catch my eyes and i will check the blurb before buying but sadly sometimes some cover didn't catch my eyes and without some review i would have missed great stories.... i don't specificaly have a kinf of cover i prefer though
I try not to, but sometimes I do, and I like fantasy mostly, so look for dragons or castles on the cover susally!!
No!! Eu gosto de capas duras com gráficos chamativos, muitas cores!
Yes I do judge a book by their cover. I love beach scenes when reading contemporary romance. I like covers with handsome men when reading historical romance and the men must have dark hair.lol
Always, I'm drawn to the cover first and tend to go for the same type, hand drawn modern chick lit looking covers much like the books in this giveaway
Yeah, I totally judge books by their covers at times. I try not to though, since I know they rarely tell me much about the quality of the writing. I'm starting to be drawn to more minimalist covers; art or photography that's simple and elegant.
Covers atract me, I won't lie. I love pretty covers, with colors, nice fonts on the titles. But that's just initially, sometimes I see a pretty book and then I look it up on GR and then I decide if I want to read it, but sometimes I do buy pretty books on impulse, especially for my favorite books.
I try not to but I totally do. I'm attracted to darker covers with bold titles.
Yes, I can admit I do. I love a bright cover or intriguing type
Gosh yes. If I am drawn to the cover, I can bring a book home from the library without even reading the back. I do love Christmas covers and the ones with the big houses on the front. Not to mention "hot guys" too.
I look at the cover but I like to read the description of the book to give me a good idea of what it's about. From that I will decide if the book peaks my interest.
Have to say i judge a book by its cover to the more attractive it is the more its likely to get my attention. If it has a cat on the cover im sold!
It's terrible to say, but I do. It certainly helps to peak my interest in a book.
I am a cover girl. If it looks terrible to me, I am likely to not read the book. Not good, but the truth.
Sometimes I admire a book just for its cover. Hence "coffee table book."
actually yes i do often judje a book from it's cover
Oh yes, a beautiful book cover is always a plus! And I do love these wonderful covers!Fingers crossed! Amazing giveaway! It would be the best present for my birthday next month!fb name: ΒΑΣΙΛΙΚΗ ΑΡΓΥΡΟΠΟΥΛΟΥtwitter name:@vasiliki9280e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Covers attract me but I don't judge a book by the cover. I still like to read the synopsis of the book :)
Minimalism style cover is the most attractive for its mysterious look. I do judge the book by its cover.
I do judge a book by its cover, I go for books with covers that stand out, that are girly bright, sparkly romantic.
Yep, I judge by the cover I like sexy covers
Well I first do and if I like it then I read synopsis. I like bright colorful covers but I tend to read more books with dark mysterious covers.
Yes, I do judge books by their covers, contrary to popular advice! Different covers appeal to me for different genres. Colour is important and for some reason blue appeals to me most.
Yes! I like minimal covers :)mia2009(at)comcast(dot)net
yes i do judge a book by the cover. i like books with no human character.
Sometimes I do. I tend to gravitate towards colourful fun covers.
If I am just browsing...yes I do. Its normally the cover that draws me in! I love the fun covers...nothing too deep.
I do! I actually don't even read the title on books that I don't like the cover. The covers that attract me are the happy and romantic ones with bright or pastel colors like the ones on the giveaway.
Never do, cover is only attracts your first attention but then I read the description :)
I'd like to say that I don't but I do. Not the ones that I like, it's the ones that I don't. I really don't like those to pumped up guys on the covers.
I do judge a book by its cover, they need to be professional but I get annoyed with profile pictures which don't match the hair colour / length / clothing style of the MC they are portraying
I almost always judge a book by its cover. I like happy flowery pictures or else something that just looks intruguing.
Yep. I do not like cheesy romance covers. I like something a bit arty.
Covers are important to me. If it's really awful, I usually won't look any further. An attractive cover will catch my eye and intrigue me enough to read the book blurb before deciding to purchase.
I don't judge a book's covers too hard but it's tells me what the author wants the tale to look like. If I don't like the art style but like the book I just imagine the book in a art style I like! ^.^
When it comes to books, I do find myself at times drawn to a book because of its cover. If it is beautifully designed with gorgeous artwork.. I do pause and check to see what it could be about. It doesn't matter whether it is an animated cartoonish cover or photographed with models. If it's artistic and stylish, it will catch my eye! :)
I do. If it's a cover I like, I'm more likely to read the blurb to see if it's something I want to read. If it's a cover I don't like, it won't stop me from reading it, I'm just less likely to read the blurb. The blurb is what I use to determine if I want to read any book.
Sometimes! I think that an eyecatching cover is important!
I do, sometimes :) I like covers with flowers and beachy stuff :D
