Book Blogger Hop #23 and Follow Friday #18

The Book Blogger Hop is an awesome meme hosted by Jennifer from Crazy For Book and Follow Friday is another awesome meme hosted by Parajunkee from Parjunkee's View :D

Book Blogger Hop

Outside of books, what is your guilty pleasure?

My answer: Firstly, I don't think books are a guilty pleasure... :L Nor do I think my other 'guilty pleasures' are done guiltily... Anyway. I'm addicted to CityVille on Facebook. I literally can't stop playing it. I'm on it ALL the time... I love it! :L I love chocolate too, and could eat it all day long. But I gave it up for Lent so I haven't had any for a long time, and I'm craving it :L 

Do you judge a book by its cover?

My answer: Not completely, but the cover does effect how much I want to read it. If a book has a gorgeous cover, I'm much more likely to want to read it than if the cover was awful... :L That's not to say I won't read a book that has a cover I don't like, it's just the covers I love will get priority :D 

What's happened this week at Cheezyfeet Books?


  1. Oh I'm the same way! If the cover is something I like or love I'll give it a shot faster than a book with one that I don't like. Although I have been pleasantly surprised at books with covers I don't like! I'm already a follower! My FF is at Coffee Table Reviews

  2. I agree, the cover does influence my choices a lot.

    New Follower :)

  3. Oh that is interesting. I haven't read that answer thus far. I get that feeling by reading the back cover. Some make me curious and some make me so excited, I can't wait to read it.

  4. The cover has never really been my sole purpose for wanting to read the book. I have an appreciation for it or I don't but it doesn't effect my love or not so much love, for the story.

    Although, I did immediately fall in love with the cover for 13 to Life w/o knowing much about it. Of course the love still remained after reading the book as well!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    Jessica@a GREAT read

  5. I'm the same way. Have a great weekend. :)

  6. A great cover will draw me to a book, but it's the description and reviews that make me read it. Though, who wants to be seen around town reading a book with an ugly cover?

  7. I think we can all agree that even the most beautiful book cover can't sell a book if the writing's not there. Book cover art may, at best, help steer me in the book's direction (especially if I'm in a book store) but it's not going to hypnotize me into buying it right then and there.

    I expound on all the marketing qualities of a good book. Just follow me back to my book blog -

    Thank God it's Follow Friday!?

  8. New follower! I always judge a book by it's cover! I can't help it; I'm superficial like that, haha :) But a book is a book no matter what! Have a happy weekend!

  10. Hi there! Perhaps a bit late, but still hopping through! New follower. :)

    Great answer! I have to say that I do judge them, perhaps a bit more than you do. ;) But I don't choose them because of cover, it's just what captures by eye that makes me interested in reading more. The storyline wins in the end!

    My FF can be found here!

  11. Hey there!

    New follower here. Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Happy Blog Hop!

  12. I really have no idea but I do. Mostly in the evenings. I fast forward through the commercials which cuts off some time and I watch while I'm cooking or folding clothes - times when I can't really read. :)

    I use to be addicted to Farmville on Facebook but had to stop. It was bad. :P

  13. Thanks for commenting (:

    I totally agree with you on the covers - they're what I base my first opinion on a book on.

  14. Chocolate for me too ! :)

    have a good week


  15. New follower here from the hop. I like chocolate, but my real food guilty pleasure is Lays Salt & Vinegar potato chips. I could eat a whole bag if I let myself.

    Hope you'll come visit me at

  16. New follower hopping on through. :)

    I'm kinda the same way, I'm totally addicted to Farmville and then tv on dvd, so when I'm not reading I'm probably doing one of those two or a combination of both. lol.

    And I'm totally highly allergic to chocolate and anything peanuts, so I couldn't have that. But, I stand by my coffee!

    Maybe check out mine, if you get a chance.

SERIES REVIEW: The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

Hello! Welcome to my appreciation post for one of my favourite series - The Illuminae Files ! I'm going to try and keep it non-spoilery but be cautious if you've only read Illuminae  and/or Gemina .  THE FACTS: Series title: The Illuminae Files Series authors: Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff Publisher: Rock the Boat Series completion date: 13th March, 2018 This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do. This afternoon, her planet was invaded. The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it.

And then there's the secretive Night School, whose activities other students are forbidden even to watch. When Allie is attacked one night the incident sets off a chain of events leading to the violent death of a girl at the summer ball. As the school begins to seem like a very dangerous
