Book Blogger Hop (1)

Book Blogger Hop

I've seen this Book Blogger Hop meme all over the blogosphere, but I've never really paid attention to it. However, Alice from The Reader Room did a post on it this week, and I read it and finally understood what it was all about. Thank you Alice:)

All you basically do is answer the weekly book related question, and then link your blog on the list. Pretty simple, yes? I don't know why I felt so overwhelmed before. Well, you all know I'm an idiot haha. 

This week's question is:

What is your favourite book cover?

I'm pretty bad and I am one of those people who does judge a book by its cover. Honestly, if a book has - in my opinion - an ugly cover, I will nine times out of ten not pick it up. I told you, I'm horrible.

Anyway, I have a few favourite covers. However, my favourite one at the moment is, by far, the most beautiful cover I have ever seen. (I say that all the time, so don't take me too seriously!)


Nightshade by Andrea Cremer has the most stunning cover. The glitter and the purple/lilac go so well, and the lilies, and the hair, and the yellow eye.. Just - WOW!

I'll be honest and say that I did, at first, only pine for this book because of the cover. But after reading some reviews and then going forth and actually reading the book, I saw that the content was just as beautiful as the picture.

And the pages are all kind of.. rough and old looking. Gorgeous.

  1. It is fabulous. The colours are gorgeous and the glitter (oh how I love glitter)! I'm completely the same, the cover is a huge reason why I read/buy a book (we really are horrible :P) But who can really blame us when they sell books as pretty as this?

  6. This one is such a pretty cover. I love the purple, the flowers, and her gorgeous yellow eye. Did I hear there's glitter on the cover too? That makes it beyond awesome!

    Don't worry, I judge books on their covers all the time and unless I've heard something positive about a book with an ugly cover, then I probably won't read it.

  7. I really like the 'Nightshade' cover, as well. There's a lot of covers with faces, but this one stands out.

    Happy Hop!
