[Book Blogger Hop] Side Quest #3


Didn’t you just love that interview yesterday? Megan Linski is one of my favorite authors! And Torrent . . . wow! Anyway, it’s that time again – time for the Book Blogger Hop (and yes, I know I should be focusing on everything for Kid’s Book Week – which starts on Monday! – but I’m going to sneak this one in and hope that my motivation holds and everything else gets done on time. It will. It should. Yes, it will!)

So, if you haven’t joined us before, the Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer and it’s a lot of fun. Each week, there is a question to answer (the hop runs from Friday til Thursday) and all you have to do is link up your answer and hop around to other blogs and say hi! Easy peasy and lots of fun! This week’s question comes from our host, Billy . . .

Have you ever bought a book because you liked its cover art?


You’re kidding, right? Maybe the more appropriate question for me would be “have you ever bought a book based on something other than the cover art?” Because yes, I am a very visual person. And yes, I tend to have a problem with buying books based on their cover (and signing up for tours based on the same criteria, which sometimes produces less than favorable reviews, unfortunately). Of course, I am learning to read the summary on Amazon / Goodreads before buying / signing up for books. Most of the time. Some of the time. Let’s just agree that I am a work in progress.

So . . . favorite cover art? Right now, it is With These Wings by another favorite author of mine, Wendy Knight.

Although, to be fair, I don’t think there is a cover of Wendy’s that I haven’t absolutely fallen in love with 🙂


The truth? Yes. We had suddenly lost our precious Yoda. I was walking around Barnes & Noble and this book was turned out so I saw the cover. I have been a big fan of his ever since 🙂

That’s all we have for you today 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your hopping!

  1. I really like the cover to Wendy Knight’s book. And I totally can see why Unleashed would appeal after a loss like that. I can’t say I have ever bought a book because of the cover alone, but a cover will certainly get me to stop and take a closer look. So, it’s definitely a selling point.

    I hope you both have a great weekend!

    1. Hey! Kids week starts tomorrow and we will be showcasing kids books and authors. If you click the sidebar and go to our Facebook page, we will be posting photos of kids reading and sharing some of our favorite books – you can definitely participate in that! We have an interview with a child author tomorrow right here on the blog. It’s our first time doing it so I am afraid it’s a little disorganized. Hope this helps!
