Follow Friday/Updates

Hi guys!  It's been a little light on the blog this week. Why?  Because I'm currently Script Frenzying, so reading has been pushed aside a bit.  I haven't stopped reading, but I just haven't been able to dedicate as much time as usual to books.  I'm writing a pilot script for the Frenzy.  Fingers crossed the script keeps on chugging along as steadily as it has been!


This Week on the Blog:
Review: Unearthly
At the Movies:  The Hunger Games Edition


And on to the Hop...



The Question of the Week is:
Do you judge a book by its cover?


Answer: Yes. I do. I always have. If a book has an ugly cover, it's much harder for me to pick it up and read than a book with a pretty cover. An example of where this didn't work in my favor? 'Hex Hall'... I didn't like the cover of 'Hex Hall' and for that reason, I held off on reading it. A few weeks after dissing the cover of the book, I stumbled upon an ARC of 'Hex Hall' with a plain black cover. I read the back and gave it a shot. Well, it became my choice for best book of 2010... I still judge books by their covers, though... :p

I think we all judge a book, whether we want to or not. As long as there are words to paint a new world for me I'm happy.

Please Stop by, I'm starting a new with a fresh look.  Let me know what you think.

I loved hex hall and I just finished Demonglass loved it as well.

I think most everyone judges books by their covers.

Old follower just stopping by. Did Hex Hall have different covers at one point? Because I think that cover is gorgeous. :)

Hi, a belated Follow Friday visitor. I don't think anyone had said they don't ever judge a book by it's cover, think it's kind of inevitable! Have a great weekend.

I'd completely forgotten about the Script Frenzy - I was going to do that this year. I'll have to put it on the calendar for next year. Good luck.
