Question of the Week

"What kind of book covers are you drawn to? (i.e. Full body, guy, chic, half naked, headless man, couple, place, ect.) And what kind of covers turn you off of a book?"

I do love a strong shirt-less man on a cover, especially when he is embracing a woman. The two covers that come into my mind that really represent what I love in a cover are the first two Jaguar Warriors books by Juliana Stone.

Covers I didn't like that turned me off... I have to say I love the books like craazy, real CRAAAAAZY but the U.K/Australian paperback covers to J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood books... I mean really? Way to suck. If I didn't know how brilliant the stories are and I saw those covers on a bookstore shelf I would walk past and not even pick them up to try.

For comparison purposes:

Ugh - those are some atrocious foreign covers! Personally, I like my covers a little dangerous and daring, with a bit of fetish costuming, as opposed to pure beefcake. :)

I totally agree!!! Great choices!

There's such a huge difference between the "Lover Mine" covers Yikes!

Thanks for sharing!

Madame D said...

I have noticed that books in the UK are a little more toned down. Hell, sometimes they take the heat right off the cover. That's so boring! They would sell more copies if they just gave in and showed half naked men. Lol.

Never saw the different covers for BDB but I have to agree! Thanks for participating!

I'm currently working on replacing all my icky U.K/Aus covers with the American ones. I just can't stand them! Costs a bit more but worth it.

Thanks ladies for stopping by :D
