OK, so I am totally new to the getting-to-know-each-other weekend memes and I thought it was high time I check them out! So this evening I visited one of my fave spots at Parajunkee's View aaaand... well now I am hoping to meet and greet some new bloggers! Woohoo!! If you are new to my site, I humbly welcome you to my new book blog (it's been here, like, 15 days haha) and if you are returning, it is so good to see you again! I am definitely looking forward to chatting and getting to know all of you this weekend :)
Soooo... this week's question is: Do you judge a book by it's cover?
Answer: Absolutely! I am pretty new to the YA genre (before this I was pretty much strictly an English historical biography kind of girl) so the cover for me is a major determining factor for whether or not I will pick a book up off the shelf.
However, this isn't the only way I'll read a book: If I come across a really good review for something, or if it seems to have a different perspective/point of view, I have been known to look it up at the library, too. And sometimes I am really pleasantly surprised: Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi was an amazing book, even though its cover wasn't all that memorable.
Hope all of you have an awesome weekend! Happy reading :)
