Sunday Spotlight

This year we, myself along with Born to Read Books are doing a few new posts. I love changing things up and around. From now on Sunday's will be Sunday spotlight, where I will talk about all things books or share a book with you. 

This week I want to talk about "Covers: Person vs Nature scene"

Covers are a funny thing. You fall for them for many different reasons. Sometimes there is a hot guy on the cover and you just can't pass that up, others there are pretty flowers that make you feel happy. 

As much as I love covers and have been known to pick a book because of it, as a whole they don't really matter to me. Unless...they are badly done. Some of the small press covers are bad. They'd be better off just using a field of flowers or a table set with dishes. I don't know, anything but that guy looks scary in a not hot scary way. 

So what about you? What kind of cover lover are you? 


  1. Covers matter. I really hate the headless torso covers. Even if he has his back turned and all we see is the back of a head, that would be better than just a torso. I've read that publishers think a headless torso is better when they can't find a face that matches the story. They're wrong.

    1. See, I like the headless covers. I want the author to give me a vague idea how they look and when I read the story I'll fill in what's missing. I can never say which actor the characters look like because to me they never look like actors.
