Q. Do you judge a book by it’s cover?
Definitely. For a long time, I never thought about picking up ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS because it screamed cliche, stereotypical contemporary romance. Not exactly my thing. After reading so many glowing reviews and a shout-out from the fabulous John Green, I ended up giving it a shot. Well, I was definitely proven wrong. And of course… there are some instances where a pretty cover doesn’t always mean a great book. Hm.
We’ll see how this works out… but my best friend Loreal may be stopping by every so often to write up a guest review. This isn’t a scheduled once a week post but mostly when she has the time. Her posts will be labeled with this signature, so keep an eye out for it and give her lots of comment love:
My new feature kicks off in two weeks! Be sure to also keep an eye out for Behind the Book. First post is on the 20th! And lastly, the new theme is just waiting for its new header. I am getting my sister to draw me something but I don’t know how long that’s going to take her. The design is revolving around the idea of Happily Ever Afters.
hi new follower here

check out my answer!
Oh I hope you get to it soon! I can really not gush enough on how awesome it was.
Oh! I loved Anna and the French Kiss’s cover and book! I’m glad you tried it out! I agree, I didn’t love the cover until after I read it. I’m already a follower. My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews
Thanks for stopping by.
Lol, you were one of the reason I finally did read Anna and the French Kiss. I totally thought it’d be a cliche and mushy and generally boring for me – but I was so wrong. It’s one of my favorites books now. ;D
And you just keep making me more and more excited for the new layout!
SO MUCH PRESSURE. I don’t think it’s going to be as epic as you think!!!
I had a great urge to read Anna yesterday…. hmm.
Anna is a great example of when a cover didn’t influence me at all. I read so many great reviews of it that I never even looked at the cover – but you’re right it is kind of cliche’ isn’t it? Wow!

I think we can all agree that even the most beautiful book cover can’t sell a book if the writing’s not there. Book cover art may, at best, help steer me in the book’s direction (especially if I’m in a book store) but it’s not going to hypnotize me into buying it right then and there.

Thank God it’s Follow Friday!?
Must you mention Anna in every outlet possible? Kidding, kidding.
I can’t help it.
