Book Blogger Hop 5

It's Friday again! Time for another Blog Hop! Wanna join? It's all at

Question this Week:

Do you judge a book by it's cover?

Shelbie's Answer:

Yes, I do. A lot. More than I probably should. I think it's only ever failed me once. Some of my favourite books also have my favourite covers. ie. Hush, Hush and Crescendo. Amazing covers and amazing books, no? But if a book has a really interesting sounding plot and a eh cover I'll still read it. So its not like it greatly effects my overall decision that much.

Do you judge books by their covers? Let me know, and if you did by doing a blog hop post link to it. I always love reading them!


  1. Hi, Shelbie & Amanda! Just hopping by! I'm already a follower of your blog. I love Hush, Hush's and Crescendo's cover too and they turned out to be amazing books as well. :)

  2. Hi :) ITs amazing how powerful a good cover is when choosing a book. Makes you wonder if a publisher knows this, why are there ugly covers?

  6. Just an old follower hopping through via the blog hop. I agree with you. If a book has a so-so cover but an awesome cover flap, I'll still read it. I prefer a great book with a pretty cover though! And you're right, Hush, Hush had an amazing cover! Have an awesome weekend!
