Oops, this is a bit late! So yeah, before starting, I wanna thank all those who visited my blog yesterday. I'm gonna reply all of your comments, I promise. But since I haven't had the opportunity to really do anything today, its gonna take a while more. Comments really brighten up my day so thanks so much you guys! Alright, let's begin with today's post.
Book Covers. How much do they affect your enjoyment of the book? Or rather, how much do they affect one wanting to pick up a book? I know it has certainly affected me, but not to the extent of some people. You see, I read mostly ebooks. I don't really care about the book covers one way or another. But recently, I've taken to looking and spazzing over awesome book covers. I can't really name any offhand, but sometimes, the cover just makes me want to read the book.
Take a look at this:
Just a small example of what I like in a book cover. It's simple, yet its so beautiful! My book dropped on the floor once. At first glance, I couldn't recognize it, but I was just so in love with the cover. Then I realised it was this book, one of my all time favorites. There was another book that when I saw the cover, I just knew I had to read it. It isn't that great, but something about it just grabbed me. Take a look.
Yes, I know, nothing really special. Alright, so I requested it from NetGalley. But I've yet to read it:( I know, major procrastinator... But sometimes book covers just grab me and make me have to read the book. I can't really explain it, but sometimes, based on a book cover you sometimes know when you have to read a book. For example, when I was browsing through books, I saw this:
Instantly, I was hooked. I tried passing it over, but kept coming back to it over and over. At last, I gave in and picked up the book. And boy, when I read it, I didn't have a single regret. That was simply the most amazing book ever. And it did start my craze with JM, so who am I to complain? And before you ask, yes, most of my favorite books are written by JM. Don't get me started on her, I won't ever stop:)
So yes, I don't want to keep this too long, and I do still have to reply to everyone's comments. To sum it all up, book covers can be important to me. I mean, sometimes, it just instantly grabs you and you just know you have to read the book. The cover doesn't have to be the most riveting ever, sometimes, just some small bit speaks to you and you don't have a choice but to pick up the book. And when you do, sometimes you never regret it. Or maybe that's just me!
Do book covers affect your decision to pick up a book? I know some people are really crazy about them, to the point where it can make them go on a book-buying binge! I'm not like that, but who knows, if I had unlimited money, I could be! :D
