Q. Do you judge a book by it's cover?
It's a tricky question to answer with a simple "yes" or "no", because I kind of do and kind of don't.. When it comes to YA it does play a somewhat important role in my decision making (do I want to read this?), but then the plot and content is still the most important thing to me. I read a lot, and not only YA, but a lot of contemporary fiction, as well as thrillers and Asian fiction (and many, many other genres), and if I were to judge Philip K Dick by the cover of his book I would honestly never have read any of his brilliant stories. With YA, well, it's different. There are so many new YA authors popping up everywhere (like mushrooms after the rain) that they need something to catch the reader's attention, and it's usually the cover.
So, summing it up: the content of the book is THE most important thing to me, but I would lie if I'd say that I don't look at the cover at all. I LOVE YA pretty, lovely, intriguing and eerie covers.. me likes eye-candies!^o^~!
