If I see a cover that makes me cringe, I typically don't pick it up. If the cover makes mah girly bits shiver, it's a given that I will pick it up and read the blurb on the back.
The first thing we see is what draws our attention, right? A picture is worth a thousand words, and blah, blah, blah...
But, honestly--it's what in between the pages that makes me come back, especially with a new author. One friend defines these types of books as "Hot With Plot", and I totally agree.
Today's Top Ten focuses on book covers--and since I read many different genres, I decided to split it up into 2 different categories: Young Adult and Adult.
Here are my Top 10 picks for the year 2011 in Adult Romance:
1. Hearts In Darkness ~ Laura Kaye (READ)
I swear I bought this only because of the tatts--and rated it a 5 Star read on my blog. Awesome novella.
2. Hidden Away ~ Maya Banks (READ)
He has a very nice, er...gun. And the sweat look totally works for him.
3. Rock Hard ~ Olivia Cunning (READ)
Jeans and sans shirt? YUMMY-The title is a very apt description, no?
4. Blood Rights ~ Kristen Painter (READ)
Two words for you ladies--Jed Hill.
This is an example of how I love my heroines--KICK ASS!
I swear, its the wardrobe--Charley Davidson shops at DEMONS R US--Kewl.
Again, jeans sans shirt--and a kick-ass leather duster **shivers**
10. Mesmerized ~ Lauren Dane (TBR pile)
UNGH--my tongue stuck to the roof of my mouth and I forgot how to speak when I saw this--Cammies-ripped wife beater, sliver of muscled abs playing peek-a-boo with my uterus...GAH!
