Once Upon a Read-a-Thon: Mini Challenge #1!

The Once Upon a Read-a-Thon is hosted by Angela @ Reading Angel, Lori @ Pure Imagination & Candace @ Candace's Book Blog.

This mini challenge is part of the Once Upon a Read-a-Thon & is hosted by Bailey @ IB Book Blogging

To participate you have to be signed up for the read-a-thon & to post about & answer the following 2 question:

Question 1:
What is your favorite cover that has been revealed this summer and why? Post a link or picture of the cover if you want.

Question 2:
Do you rely on the cover to help you choose whether you want to read a book or not?

My Answers:

Question 1:

So many gorgeous cover reveals lately, but my most favourites are:

So beautiful, I'm in love! I know I should've pick only one, but couldn't, I just had to include both.
I love the Soul Screamers series & all the covers in the series are so gorgeous, but the cover for the vol 2 left me speechless, one of the most beautiful one I've ever seen.
The same goes for the cover of Through the Ever Night - when it was revealed a while ago, I was like OMG I'm in love & here's my #1 cover for 2013 :) I still haven't read or even bought Under the Never Sky, although it's on my to-buy list, but I wasn't planning on getting the hardcover, but now when I saw this one, I know I will be getting these books in hardcover ;) I just have to own this in hardcover!

Question 2:

Sometimes, but not always. I just know that a gorgeous cover doesn't mean a great book, so I can end up regretting buying a book, so that's why I try the cover not to be crucial when buying a book - the first is the book description, next is checking out reviews, ratings, etc, and if that's accompanied by a great cover, that's awesome. Although there are those rare books that I just have to own in hardcover (and I'm really picky about the hardcover books I buy, 'cause they cost a lot more, and I can't afford them all) but they're just so gorgeous, I just have to have them ;) (the Under the Never Sky books joined that small list when the cover of Through the Ever Night was revealed).
