Follow Friday #5

This is a meme hosted every Friday by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, where book bloggers answer a question each week and check out how others answered it. It's a cool way for bloggers and viewers to connect and learn more about each other!

If you can't follow via GFC, then please follow via NetworkedBlogs or e-mail! :)

Please state in the post if you're a new follower or old follower. If you don't tell me that you are following, then I don't know that you are. Therefore, I'll not follow you back. I would like to follow each and every one of you back, so it is important that you clearly state that you are following me and not just stopping by. When someone says, "just saying hi!" or "just hopping through!" then I have no idea if you are following or not. That means that I may or may not return the visit, depending on how much time I have. The people who state they are following me will definitely get a visit and follow back. Thank you. 

Q: Have you ever looked at a book’s cover and thought, This is going to horrible? But, instead were pleasantly surprised?

   A: Yes, I have done that before. I simply hated the cover of Hourglass by Myra McEntire. The girl's hair just pissed me off. Don't ask me why, I don't know. I just thought that cover was ridiculously stupid. However, I finally gave in and checked out the book from the library and I LOVED IT! It's not one of my favorite books. I am very guilty of judging a book by its cover, though. 

 What about you?

  3. Oh, man, I LOVE the cover for Hourglass! That one and the cover for the sequel, Timepiece, are probably my favorite covers of all time! I think the hair is cool because she's actually standing on the wall and the floor is to her right. It took me a while to figure that out, though. But we all have our opinons! ;)

  4. I just saw the cover for Hourglass the other day on someone's "Top Ten Tuesday: Best Covers". :) I liked it because it was weird, if that makes any sense? But I don't think it's a "Best Cover." I'm glad you liked the book though! Thanks for stopping by and for the follow! *New Follower*

  7. I thought the cover of Hourglass looked like a Barbie doll in her Dreamhouse:) It wasn't my fave but then I read the book and loved it so the cover has now grown on me. Thanks for hopping by earlier,following you back:)

  8. Good choice! Thank you for stopping by the blog! Followed you back :)
