So I know it’s wrong to do but *ehem* this book lover tends to do judge a book by its over, like a lot. Now I know I’m not the only one and maybe you reading this now have wrongly judged a book before.
There’s just something about a book cover that makes me leap in the air for joy (figuratively speaking of course) or makes me want to hurl my Kindle across the room. (Still figuratively speaking.) 😉
I usually tend to stay FAR away from books with obvious Photoshoped covers. In that case, if a cover fails to appeal to me I’m going to pass it by.
I’m just not feelin’ it.
Believe me, I have done that before only to end up reading it later and being surprised by how amazing it was!! It even ended up on my bookshelf where only the best books I’ve ever read go. Ever since then, I learned a very valuable lesson about how not to judge a book by its cover. 😉
And what a lovely surprise it was when you do read it and figure out what a surprisingly amazing book it was! Am I right, or am I right??
I think that’s what makes this reading journey a blast for me. Meeting awesome people like you guys and meeting new characters and being reacquainted with old ones jus makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. You never can know when or where your next favorite book is going to come from. 🙂
But that’s just me. What are some determining factors that make or break a book for you? I want to hear them, so tell me! 😉 Have you ever judged a book, decided not to read it only to read it later and ended up loving it?
