Book Blogger Hop (3), September 3-6, 2010

Book Blogger Hop

Welcome to the Book Blogger Hop, hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books.com! In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs to read!

This week's question: Do you judge a book by its cover?

Unfortunately, yes. But not always! Sometimes it's pretty obvious what a book is about based on its cover, other times not. The book I'm about to read, Tempest Rising, has a strange cover.


Would you be able to guess that it's a PNR/UF crossover? I bought it because of the reviews and hype when it came out but if I had to make a decision based on the cover? I probably wouldn't have bought it. Book covers are there for a reason and like everything else, appearance is a big part of first impressions.

Have a great weekend!

That is an interesting cover and I probably would have passed on it only based on the cover. I'll be interested to read your review.

Hope you have a great weekend!

I too judge a book by it's cover. Funny that you mention Tempest Rising because it actually caught my attention when I saw it because it was so different from most of the stuff out there.

Now that I've read Tempest Rising, I have to say that the cover fits the book. I have a hard time thinking what else they might have done with it.
