Once Upon a Read-a-Thon: Update and Challenge
Cover challenge from IB Book Blogging:
Question 1) What is your favorite cover that has been revealed this summer and why?
Question 2) Do you rely on the cover to help you choose whether you want to read a book or not?
Usually book covers affect me more with not wanting to read a book. Covers that look self-published or like pulp novels (you know, the historical romances with girls' dresses falling down, or cheesy sci-fi/fantasy scenes, or melodramatic fonts) totally turn me away. And I don't usually want to read a book based on a cool cover alone, but a cool cover combined with an interesting plot idea is enough to make me at least a little bit obsessed with obtaining a copy.
