Follow & Feature Friday.....

Hello all, it's that day of the week where we learn new things about each other and discover new blogs along the way.  We also help each other by becoming followers of one another.  Normally that following would be through GFC (which would be great if you'd still take a few seconds to do), but with that being eliminated for certain blogs (a big boo-hiss to that) I now ask that you follow through a RSS Feed (or Twitter, FB, or email) which you can find to the right.  I want to thank all of you ahead of time who choose to become a follower and make sure to let me know in the comments if you're new so I doubly make sure to follow you back.  And now for this weeks get to know me question....

Q:  Have you ever looked at book's cover and thought, This is going to horrible? But, was instead pleasantly surprised? Show us the cover and tell us about the book.

A:  In all honesty, if the cover is terribly unappealing I probably won't pick it up to begin with.  When choosing a book to read it's a combination of appealing book blurb, good reviews, appealing characters with the look of the cover being the least of my concerns but having a small influence.   


  1. I feel the same. There's only a couple covers I've ever not liked and that was because I thought it sounded really interesting. Happy Friday :)

  3. Hopping through. I agree that the cover does have a small influence but the blurbs and reviews are most important.

  5. Yeah there usually is a combo of things. I agree with that! But I usually read reviews of book with said unappealing cover and then decide what the hell! There's always the hide a cover things to get!

  6. I agree, the cover isn't everything.

    1. A good answer.

  7. Thanks to all of you wonderful people for visiting me and commenting! Thanks too for all you new followers! I hope to see all of you again soon and wish you a wonderful weekend!

  8. I read books with bad covers when they come highly recommended by a friend. Otherwise I don't read them. I learned to be a little less judgmental after reading Raging Quiet, because I adored the book but not the cover.

  9. I definitely agree with you on how you chose your novels. That's what made this weeks question a bit of a challenge for me. Thanks so much for the follow! NEW FOLLOWER!
