Why Book Covers are so important?
by Aoife Marie Sheridan

I always judge a book by its cover, I know they say don’t but I do. It’s the first thing I see. When I roam amazon for the next book to read, I start by looking at the covers to see which one interests me, then I read the synopsis before I make my final decision, but the cover is what draws me in.

Even in a bookstore, our eyes see all the covers but one done well, will make you reach for it and turn it around to see what it’s about. But the cover is always a good indication to what the story is about. I am a reviewer so I have read lots of books with bad covers; I didn’t see the covers as I was sent a request in that case I read the synopsis first. After I would have read the book I would rate it on goodreads, more times than I can count I was shocked at the boring, or DIY cover that was there as representation to such an outstanding story. Then I would look at the ratings and see something silly like seven. I often wrote to the authors explaining as a reader I would never have bothered to read the synopsis never mind the book, if I was going by the book cover, it was vital for them to change it, because the story was so amazing it was wrong to waste it. I would feel very strongly on the subject of book covers.

I own a site called and every year I run a competition for the Best Book Cover, that’s how important it is to me. As the organiser I get to take a good look at all the covers so far there are three that I purchased from Amazon because the covers where that amazing. 

The competition starts the 1st of March voting is open to public so by all means come along and Judge a book by its cover.

  1. Great post ladies! I'm big on covers and it have a lot of weight on me picking up a book or being interested in one unless it's been recommended to me. I find it portrays what's inside and also the effort put towards it (which is especially true for self publishing). Thanks for being on the tour, Beckie! :)

  2. Thank you so much for having me on your blog. :)

  3. I love the book cover and the storyline. I love reading characters who are the chosen one and that saving the world is in his/her hands with some help from a few allies. Thanks for the giveaway.
