Cover Love

A recent new blog I found, CE HART's post on covers has inspired me.

 I LOVE book covers. I could wallpaper a room with some of the delicious art that is wrapped around books. Give me a cup of Starbucks Chai Latte and let me loose to wander around Chapters. Bliss.

I will admit to purchasing many just because of the cover.

Here are some of them:


and these:


But really, my all time favourite cover, the one that stopped me in my tracks as I was trying to leave a bookstore, was this beauty:



Have you ever discovered a new favourite author because the cover drew you in?

I love your blog post title--Cover Love! So often book covers are what first lure me into reading a blurb.

I really like the butt cover. haha The title is pretty cool too. ;)

Oh geez. I'm already a diehard Otherworld fan but that book cover is just...hubba hubba

Love the covers. I need to read ICE and OTHERWORLD.

Ice is so cool!

My Lead Dog was a Lesbian is such an awesome title.

Across the Universe had a gorgeous cover. What must it feel like to have a publisher so committed to a book that you get a reversible cover?

Yes, I have! If the cover rocks, I'll pick up the book and explore further. If the cover is bland, I'll never touch it.

I love covers too. Hush Hush was one I bought because of the cover and City of Bones and Ashes too. Worth it! :)

Yes. Some of Jonathan Strahan's anthologies (he's actually the editor) have drawn me in because of their covers.

Beautiful covers are like eye candy to me. I love these.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Matched has an amazing cover - checked it out from the library based on cover alone. And Libba Bray's BEAUTY QUEENS with the awesome beauty pageant sash of bullets - the book is as funny and ironic as the cover.

Yes! Covers draw me in all the time!! And those are some good one, Terry! :-)
