Follow Friday # 22

Hi everyone!! Follow Friday is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee!

 I hope you are all having a great week!

Here is this Friday's Question:

Q: Have you ever looked at a book's cover and thought, this is going to be horrible? But, was instead pleasantly surprised? Show us the cover and tell us about the book.

A: To be honest, I don't really read books with covers I don't like lol. Almost all of the books I read have really appealing covers (at least to me!!).

However, one example of me picking up a book where I didn't think I would like it because of the cover is Darkness Becomes Her. But once I read this book I LOVED it! So the moral of this story is that you should try not to judge a book by its cover!! I am trying really hard not to judge books by their cover as well :)

Well..what do you think of my response?? Have you ever judged a book by it's cover but fallen in love with it??

  1. I'm like you, I definitely judge books by their covers! I usually won't even pick it up if I don't like the front unless I've been given a glowing recommendation. This sounds familiar though, I'll have to add it to my TBR list! Old follower :)

  3. Lol! I pick a book by judging its cover to! Though sometimes I'm quite dissapointed because the story are not as good as the cover!

  7. Yeah that doesn't really explain the story but it's an okay cover. I'm following through GFC, Linky, RSS, and goodreads.

  8. It's a habit for me to jump to conclusions about books based on their covers. A lot of the time, my assumptions are proved wrong and the book turns out to be better than I'd expected :) I haven't read Darkness Becomes Her yet, but it's on my TBR list.

  9. This cover looks like something I'd avoid at all cost if I saw it. I'm such a sucker for nice covers... it's hard for me not to judge books by them. ;D

  10. I'm a su**er for pretty / interesting covers and yes, sometimes it's my loss. I don't like this one that much, but have seen worse :-)
    Happy Friday! Old follower

    I agree with your choice! :)

  12. I totally judge books by their cover. I can't help it sometimes! I guess you could call me a cover girl. ;)

    1. Very dark and strange cover.

  13. I agree with you - that cover isn't attractive! Great FF, I'm now following! Here's my link:

  14. I've picked up quite many I judge sadly, but most have turned out to be real good! I actually think that cover looks quite interesting though, lol! Not that it's one of those I'd pick up ONLY for the cover. (I'm so shallow somtimes, LOL)

  15. Aww, that cover doesn't seem so horrible to me! I'm happy you liked it in the end! New Follower! Thanks again for following me.

  16. wow i felt the same way with that book as well, but it turned out it was a great read, the mythology twists was just amazing, glad you enjoyed this book, i love this series,


  17. I think we all judge a book by its cover to some extent. It's advertising, and it's also our first impression. Yeah, that cover is not great, but I'll have to check it out!
