Question of the Week: Do you, or have you ever, purchased a book solely based on it’s cover alone?
So I'm a first timer:) But I loved Reading Between the Wines' blog and I want to try out some of the memes from the 18+ blogs:) Smut Lovers unite!!
So my answer is hell yes and doesn't everyone? Covers are meant to be appealing and beautiful. Its what helps draw new readers to you, that and the amazingly awesome man-candy that usually posts with it. I have drooled over some hot covers, and some sexy ones, but I've bought other ones just because I actually fell in love with the beauty of the cover.
Half incredibly hot naked guy on the beach..no brainer.
Hot Highlander with a sword...you know hes naked under there right?
This one got my attention just because of the cover!! Its unique and the book rocked!
I remember when I first picked up Larissa Ione's book from her Demonica series? Hot guy and then I read the word demon....yeah that's a weakness of mine!!! So now I have...all of her books :)
I loved this cover. I thought it was absolutely beautiful, strictly from a artistic point of view.
I have a thing for water so this cover totally appealed to me!! It was a great read too.
I love book covers for many reasons. Even if the don't have extremely erotic poses or incredible half naked hotties on them.....but, the former will get me to pick it up if I am perusing!! LOL!!!
So, what about you? Have you ever purchased a book based on the cover alone?
