Gah! Now I've done this there's so many books I now want to buy. Spotted a tren too: I don't like covers with muscle men on them. *G*

I'm perplexed, because I don't remember seeing those last two covers in the previous rounds. Although, maybe I just blotted them out because they're not the sort of cover I like . . .

They were from a late submission in the literary contest, and as all the covers from the literary contest they entered the cover contest. Since it was already started, I added them after all the other covers. The first time they were on was last round and they did pretty well.

Ah, okay, that makes sense. Thanks!

I guess we can't all have the same tastes. I know I'm not keen on the anime style covers, yet some readers absolutely love them.

It's funny these are not all the type of books I'm into but some covers stood out and some covers along with the title caught my fancy. Eyecandy is candy for the viewer regardless

Reminded me of a few I have on my wish list and can buy now that I got paid.

And I think I kept pretty much the same answers this go round. Good to see that my three ABSOLUTE FAVORITE covers were still in contention (even if quite a few of the others ones I liked are not), but not happy to see others that I ABSOLUTELY DESPISE.

But, to each their own I guess.
