I'm not going to lie, I judge books by their covers. What about you?

I am thee biggest self-proclaimed cover whore ever...even have articles on my blog about it. That doesn't mean that if I hear about a book that's amazing I won't read it because the cover looks like my 4 year old designed it. I will read books with bad covers...I might stalk the author until they change the cover, but that's just me, lol.

I wish there was a pill I could take that would cure me of my cover whore aliment, but there's not. For now I must live with it, and if you happen to come across a cure PLEASE let me know :) lol

I have to admit that if I don't like the cover of a book, I usually wait to read some reviews about it before buying it .. and sometimes there are these books which have gorgeous covers but end up disappointing me anyway. So, I've learnt not to judge a book by its cover and I read the blurb and spoiler free reviews before buying it. It enables me to avoid disappointments .. =)

Girl, I am the queen of judging books by their covers. I'm not kidding. It's a disease. It's also a huge problems because I look over a lot of gems because of it. I do have to say that I'm trying to broaden my horizons though haha

I do judge a book by its cover. The cover won't completely deter me from purchasing it, but having a cover that doesn't interest me isn't going to help. I base on what the story is about, whether that interests me the most. Also, if others are talking about it a lot in blogs and/or friends recommend. I've gotten a couple of books I never would have thought to buy from giveaways and due to my reviewing blog. Some of the covers have been good, some okay. At least for me, good covers help more than bad covers hurt.
