  1. 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).

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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

    ReplyDelete
  9. Cover design is what draws us to a particular book over another. My favourite designs are dark, stark & sinister, much like the novels themselves!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Well yes, I do love a good cover so the answer is YES sometimes I do judge a book by it's cover

    ReplyDelete
  11. I do look at covers. They have to catch the eye.

    ReplyDelete
  12. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I quite often judge a book by it's cover, I usually go for books that have a dark mysterious cover.

    ReplyDelete
  14. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  15. 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

    ReplyDelete
  16. I try not to, but sometimes I do, and I like fantasy mostly, so look for dragons or castles on the cover susally!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. No!! Eu gosto de capas duras com gráficos chamativos, muitas cores!

    ReplyDelete
  18. 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

    ReplyDelete
  19. 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

    ReplyDelete
  20. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  21. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I try not to but I totally do. I'm attracted to darker covers with bold titles.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yes, I can admit I do. I love a bright cover or intriguing type

    ReplyDelete
  24. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  25. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  26. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  27. It's terrible to say, but I do. It certainly helps to peak my interest in a book.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am a cover girl. If it looks terrible to me, I am likely to not read the book. Not good, but the truth.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Sometimes I admire a book just for its cover. Hence "coffee table book."

    ReplyDelete
  30. actually yes i do often judje a book from it's cover

    ReplyDelete
  31. 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!

  32. Covers attract me but I don't judge a book by the cover. I still like to read the synopsis of the book :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Minimalism style cover is the most attractive for its mysterious look. I do judge the book by its cover.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I do judge a book by its cover, I go for books with covers that stand out, that are girly bright, sparkly romantic.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yep, I judge by the cover I like sexy covers

    ReplyDelete
  36. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  37. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yes! I like minimal covers :)

  39. yes i do judge a book by the cover. i like books with no human character.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Sometimes I do. I tend to gravitate towards colourful fun covers.

    ReplyDelete
  41. If I am just browsing...yes I do. Its normally the cover that draws me in! I love the fun covers...nothing too deep.

    ReplyDelete
  42. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Never do, cover is only attracts your first attention but then I read the description :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  45. 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

    ReplyDelete
  46. I almost always judge a book by its cover. I like happy flowery pictures or else something that just looks intruguing.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Yep. I do not like cheesy romance covers. I like something a bit arty.

    ReplyDelete
  48. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  49. 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! ^.^

    ReplyDelete
  50. 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! :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Sometimes! I think that an eyecatching cover is important!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I do, sometimes :) I like covers with flowers and beachy stuff :D
