Book Travelling Thursdays: All-Time Favourite Book
21 April, 2016 / 1 Comment

Book Travelling Thursdays is a fun meme I decided to join in on.  The rules are simple.  Pick a book that fits in with the current week’s theme.  Give your reasoning for choosing said book. Share the original cover, the cover from your country, your favourite cover, and your least favourite cover.  Sounds fun to me!  You can join in on the fun here. This week, we are choosing an all-time favourite book.  My pick is, of course, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.  This book will forever hold a special place in my heart, since it’s the reason I am the […]

This week, we are choosing a book that has our favourite bookish siblings.  My pick is Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter.  This book is still fresh in my mind, so that’s probably why I’m choosing it, but it also builds a strong relationship between two sisters […]


I don’t read books with embarrassing covers

I don’t read books with embarrassing covers
2 June, 2015 / 9 Comments

You know those romance books with the half-naked dudes or with a man and a woman looking very intimate?  I see these books and I run from them.  I don’t know why, as it shouldn’t stop me from reading the book, but it does.  I find myself stopping from even beginning to read a synopsis if a cover looks embarrassing like this.  Even if I’m planning on getting an eBook of it!

What if books weren’t covered with that glossy beautiful image around them?  What if books just had a blank front and back (like just plain black or something)?  Or what if they didn’t have anything protecting the words on the pages and the “cover” was just the first page of the book?  Do you think there would be as many readers?  Do you think it would affect the types of books you pick up?  What if all books looked like the following? I have a feeling that if books didn’t have covers, we would choose our books differently.  I’ve mentioned […]
