My favorite book to date has been Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky. Just something about the cover draws me in.

Posted this contest on my blog. Please feel free to check it out.

A cover that really grabbed me - Silent in the Sanctuary by Deanna Raybourn. The blue/black scrollwork and mystery surrounding the cover art really made me curious, but I started with the first book Silent in the Grave and LOVED it! Shows that a cover really can sell a book or series in this case!

I blogged about your giveaway in my giveaway sidebar.

I'm a newer blogger, so if you get a chance, stop in and give me some pointers!

Just this week I picked up a copy of John Connolly's Book Of Lost Things. It is the trade paperback and is different from the blue hardcover. It caught my eye because it is a vibrant red with shiny black vines (trees?) and the words are in pure white. Very eye-catching!

COOL! I really, really want this book so I was excited when I saw your link on LT. Let's see -- the cover to Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell is awesome - and so is the book. Have you read it?

My e-mail is in my blogger profile and if I win, I promise to give you a street address :)

I love the cover of The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky because it's so simple, yet really fits the feel of the book and the main character of Charlie. It's catching in it's simplicity, I suppose.

Definitely enter me!!

Wow this book sounds really interesting. Let's see I love book covers... I really like the hardcover and paperback covers of Matrimony, I think they work together really nicely. I also like the covers from the young adult series, The Luxe. I can't wait to see what the third cover will look like, I believe it's called Envy so I'm expecting some green! The first two books were pink and then red mixed with black, they are very elegant.

My favorite book cover is actually very plain. It's a hardbound Reader's Digest printing of "A Tree Grow's in Brooklyn" that was given to me as a Christmas present when I was in the fifth grade. It has a green spine, and green is my favorite color, but I think the real reason it's my favorite is that it was the first nice hardbound book I owned.

My least favorite cover at the moment is The Triumph of Deborah by Eva Etzioni-Halevy. I'm reading it right now, and thinking there's got to be another cover they could have used.

I haven't read this (I actually haven't even bought it), but every time I see Made in the U.S.A. by Billie Letts, I think 'what a pretty cover.'

I've gotten some pretty ugly ARCs lately - Beat the Reaper by Josh Bazell is pretty unattractive, but the colors on Nick Harkaway's The Gone-Away World leave me wondering what exactly they were thinking.

My favorite covers that just make just want to grab for the next are the Kiss of Fire and Kiss of Fate by Deborah Cooke.

One cover that I really liked was on the book 'Dog' by Michelle Herman. It was just a white background with a picture of a puppy and the title, but the puppy is so adorable. I think that may have been the real reason I brought it, because I loved the cover.
