This week has been quite stressful on my end. It’s one thing to know a hurricane is coming towards your home state and will probably affect you, but it’s another when you find out that your home is in the direct path. So this week has been mostly a lot of prepping, praying, and trying to stay calm. I can’t help but praise the Lord right now because it turned out to between a CAT 1 and CAT 2 by the time it hit us here in the Tampa Bay area. I am alive and well. There is no damage to the house at all. We did lose power, but only for a few hours after the storm had passed. We literally just got our internet back yesterday so there almost wasn’t a First Line Friday post today. Please keep Florida in your prayers because so many of my friends are still without power.

Today’s topic is:  Least Favorite or Ugly Covers

Although we say we don’t like to judge a book by it’s cover, we all know we do as readers. There aren’t too many covers that I don’t like because I’m the kind of person who will usually go for the pretty covers over the ugly ones. If the cover isn’t appealing, I won’t read it. Or if it’s one of those books that has multiple editions all with different covers, I tend to go for the better looking cover. The only time I go with a more simpler cover would be because I was trying to save money.

Many books tend to have real life people on them. I do like a lot of these, but there are a lot out there that look like they were badly photoshopped.

I am definitely not a fan of movie covers. I prefer the original covers. I’m not a huge fan of holding random actors as I read. Sometimes I feel like they take away the from the book and ruin the feel. They become overpopulaized. It’s an even worse feeling when you enjoyed the books but the movie was a total bust.
