Wer'e doing the Book Blogger Hop :)


It's that time of week again, ready for the book blogger Hop and I would like to say a huge Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends, readers and fellow bloggers :)

Today's Question :

                                                          "What is your favorite book cover?"
    
                                                                    Today's Answer:

Gosh that is such a hard question and to single it out to favourite book cover AARGH. As readers will know by now , I am and I declare that I am a judge by the cover type girl most of the time. I tend to go with 3 catergories when choosing a book 1) I will always try and read a book that an author that I have read in the past has written be it new/old etc 2) the blurb of the book sounds exciting or 3) the cover of the book attracts me - and sometimes more often than not , I am caught out with this one as the cover maybe as pretty as ever and the book totally boring and I can't get into it. So today I'll give you my past week's favourite two covers. One of the books I really enjoyed and the other one , I was fooled by the cover LOL.

            
I really enjoyed Nightshade and our cover was beautiful , thats one thing Ive noticed about NZ Book Covers compared to USA as our Nightshade was more a darker puple rather than the lavender purple and then Our Black Swan Rising cover had more of a Torment by Lauren Kate feel going for it.


                                                            Today's Question For Bloggers:

                                             What's the worst book cover you have come across ?

  1. Gosh - that is hard - I like your picks.

    As for worst covers? I've seen a few... I think I have different taste to other people. For instance, the cover of nevermore has been featured places as a fave and it really turns me off for some reason.

    I have a few bad covers on my shelf from the 80's /early 90's - I like the new digital era :)

  2. @Nomes - I agree with you with the 80's/early 90's covers - I saw a few the other day and it reminded me how far we have come with technology and of course cover art

  3. You've picked two great covers there. I've not seen that version of the Nightshade cover before.

  4. Hi! Just hopping by! Old follower here.

    Both your covers are striking. I think that's what I notice the most about covers-not if they're beautiful, but if they're striking.

    Have a great hop!
