Weekend Blog Hops - 8 September 2017
Have you ever bought a book because you liked its cover art?
Yes and no. I haven't bought a book only because I liked the cover art; however, if I see a book whose cover art appeals to me, I will go over and check it out. I'll read the blurb, and if that catches my interest too, I may end up buying it. So that's why I say both yes and no. Cover art might attract me to a book initially, but I would then consider other factors before parting with my money.
Early morning light poured into the bedroom when Vada opened her eyes.
From page 56:
She wasn't sure if it was the drugs, the beer, or a combination of both, but Henley had been super uncooperative at two in the morning.
My Current Read
Masked (Superheroes Undercover #1)
Vada’s To-Do List:
- Turn 18 (check!)
- Register super name
- Order supersuit
- Attend superhero indoctrination
- Graduate high school
- Start kicking criminal tail
Vada Lawson can’t wait to be a superhero. Born into a family with special powers, she’s been training to fight criminals and villains her whole life. But her indoctrination into the underground super community is derailed when normals start breaking out in superpowers themselves.
Not trained to control their new abilities, the normals are frightened and vulnerable. Then their mutilated corpses begin turning up all over town. What the heck?
Somehow, with the help—and hindrance—of an annoying newly-minted super named Orion, Vada has to stop the chaos before it destroys her and everything she holds dear…and ruins her superhero debut.
No one ever said that being a superhero was easy…

Who is cooperative at 2 in the morning? Beer and drugs aside.ReplyDelete
Nice excerpts - thanks for sharing and enjoy your read.
My thoughts exactly!Delete
What a fun cover. I like the blurb. Sounds good. I would love for you and your readers to check out mine . . .I saw this one on NetGalley, I believe, and almost requested it. But I don't drink wine so I thought it would be lost on me. Love the BB. I would love for you and your readers to check out mine . . . http://tinyurl.com/LisaKsBookReviewsPATPDReplyDelete

LOL I copied and pasted too much. Please ignore the .I saw this one on NetGalley, I believe, and almost requested it. But I don't drink wine so I thought it would be lost on me. Love the BB part of my last comment. LOL Must be Monday somewhere.ReplyDelete
Haha. No problem!Delete
Great cover. And yes, I sometimes grab a cover because of that. Sometimes I get a winner, sometimes not. This sounds like fun.ReplyDelete
My Friday 56 from Between A Ghost And A Spooky Place
Hi Laura. Thanks. Happy Hopping.Delete
Sounds like a fun story. It is new to me. I'm reading All the Secret Places by Anna Carlyle this week. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
Thanks Kathy. Same to you.Delete
I read the snippets before fully uncovering the cover, and was surprised by the connection. Not what I expected and now I am ever intrigued! :-) Happy weekend!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by.Delete
I was wondering why ANYONE would be cooperative at two in the morning...LOL.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “I’LL HAVE WHAT SHE’S HAVING”
I agree, Laurel-Rain Snow!Delete
That's how I feel...the cover pulls me in.ReplyDelete
Usually if the cover is good, the inside usually is.
Thanks for sharing and coming by my blog.
Thanks for stopping by, Elizabeth. Until next time...Delete
I am exactly the same - I can admire beautiful cover art but buying the book will depend on whether it interests me. 'Masked' seems like a fun read, I wouldn't mind me some superheroes and villains! Thank you for stopping by earlier :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Tas. See you next weekend.Delete
I really like the look and sound of Masked. It sounds like it will be a fun one. I'm like you. An attractive cover will spur me to take a closer look at a book, but whether I buy it or read it will depend on what it's about. Have a great week, Nicki!ReplyDelete
Thanks, and you.Delete
See, now I looked at your current read and saw superheroes and thought "ooh, I love superheroes" and almost went over to buy it. So yes, guilty as charged on cover buys.ReplyDelete
Haha! Thanks for stopping by.Delete
Yes same here if the cover art intrigues me I have to read the synopsis to see if I am interested in the book more. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog hop Nicki.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Katiria. See you again next time.Delete
