Book Blogger Hop: Nov. 26 - 29, 2010 - Cover Love

Book Blogger Hop This week's Book Blogger Hop question is:
What is your favorite book cover?
This is a simple but great question.  However, the answer is difficult for me.  I am a book cover lover.  I am not going to read (or not read) a book solely based upon the cover - but I do always pay attention to the cover art of my books.  I really can not choose only one favorite cover.  Two series of books whose covers I love come to mind, though.  One is the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling.  The book covers were done by Mary GrandPre and they are all just fantastic.  Another series whose covers I love is The Bride Quartet by Nora Roberts.  Each cover is wedding related and they all are so romantic and beautiful.

How about you? Are you a cover lover, too? And if so, which are your favorites?

  3. I love covers, too, but like you wrote, I don't immediately judge a book by its cover because there's so much more to a book than its eye candy :D The cover of your current Nora Roberts read looks so romantic. Have a great weekend :)

  4. I am a cover lover and sometimes a cover snob. My favorite cover dates back to 1987. Stop by to see what it is. Happy Blog Hop.

  5. Hi There!
    I'm the opposite to you. I tend to pick books based on their covers (and then get frustrated when the story doesn't live up to the cover). I'm your newest follower. Drop by my blog and see what I chose this week. http://www.sugarbeatsbooks.com/

  6. This week's Book Blogger Hop question WAS a tough one! It took me two solid minutes to come up with an answer!

  7. I don't think I could pick a favorite book cover... there's just too many that are great! I never cared much for the Mary GrandPre, Harry Potter covers though. Have you seen the new "Signature" Harry Potter covers? They are so beautiful! I featured them on my blog.
