  1. I like dresses but I don't like trends. :P Sometimes trends make me hate something I love (when too much is really TOO MUCH!).

  2. For me it's gave a fantasy/ magical atmosphere... to the book i won't imagine an urban fantasy book with a girl wearing a dress....not pratical enough^^

  3. I'm a bit tired of the girl-in-dresses trend, but if a cover does it in a new way, or a way that's just blow-my-mind stunning, then I definitely don't have any complaints :)

  4. The girls in dresses covers are beautiful. I love looking at them. In real life these dresses would be unpractical, so I guess they are selling a dream.

  5. I should say I'm tired of it, but I can't stop myself from reaching for those books.

  6. I find a lot of the 'girls in dresses' covers absolutely gorgeous! As long as they stay unique, I love it! But it also needs to fit the story somehow. :)

  10. I like it. I'm not a dress wearing girl *wish I was* but I like them on the covers of the books.

  11. I think they are gorgeous but overdone, and a bit of a letdown when the story makes no connection to why the girl is wearing the dress!

    ReplyDelete
  12. As long as it's not poorly photoshopped, I'm totally ok with them. When the edit is gorgeous, it makes me reach for the book against my will. ;) And who doesn't like pretty dresses?

  13. If it's a pretty dress than I love it :) Like that white dress on the Shatter Me cover. Love it!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  16. I actually really love the dresses! I think they make so of the most amazing covers :-D

  17. Honestly? I love it! I'm a sucker for those covers! And I really love it when the girl actually wears the dress in the book (ex: Nevermore by Kelly Creagh).
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  18. I love the whole Girls in Dresses thing as long as it ties to the story within the cover. I think it's beautiful, especially since I can't ever look that good in a dress. lol.

  19. In my opinion, the use of dresses for book covers makes the books somehow more intriguing to look at. But I think it's not really about the dress itself that gets to me. If anything, I think it's about how the girl carries it. Er... Am I making sense? Anyway, I do love this girls-wearing-dresses trend.

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  20. I love girls in dresses for book covers, they are gorgeous. Simple yet captivating, but I do feel that they are starting to over use them on covers.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm totally for girls in dresses!
    Just look at those gorgeous dresses ^^
    Though I'll admit it'll spoil the book a bit if the story was featuring a strong female protagonist~

  22. I DID like the trend.... but honestly, I like when the cover has something to do with the story, something to do with the plot or characters. There are so many beautiful cover with a girl in a pretty prom dress, that after reading the story and you close the book and look at the cover you are still are at a lose why a girl is in a pretty dress.

  23. I kind of like the girls in dresses trend, and long as it pertains to the story.

  24. I'm kinda a girly girl so I like dressing up fancy. I think girls in dresses on covers are really pretty and as long as it fits the book then I think it's awesome. I love seeing beautiful dresses on covers :D

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well..i kinda LOVE it! I can NEVER get enough of girls in dresses <3 Even if the book is pretty appalling, I'd be happy to own the book just for the gorgeous dress on the front cover! And somehow I think I'll NEVER get tired of them <33

  26. I like the girls in dresses on covers, as long as it ties into the story somehow. if they do that, then i love that they're used :)

  27. I love dresses! Unless it's too cold. They are pretty and comfy.

    ReplyDelete
  28. They are starting to be a bit much, but I still mostly love them. The only thing that really bothers me about them is that they don't make sense with the story sometimes.

  29. Hi!

    Honestly I love the dresses, as to them on the covers are beautiful and special because they give a touch of magic to the home environment and encourages reading.

  30. I like it! There are tons of awesome dresses! In a lot of cases, the dress makes the cover.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have no objections towards trends as long as the covers are pretty! :)

  32. I love dresses and I'd love to wear dresses more myself, but it's just so freaking cold these days over here. Nevertheless I really don't like trends because it's more or less not very creative to imitate something that's been there already just because it was successful. But as I'm more interested in good stories than in book covers, I really don't mind as long as there is an awesome story behind the covers. And actually I think it could be something worse than dresses.

  33. I really don't mind the girls in dresses on covers, but honestly, teen girls don't wear those fancy/super cute dresses everyday. Maybe if they were going to a party or something but going by the covers, one would think it's everyday wear. And most of the girls in the books don't wear those type of dresses anyways, it's misleading. Everyone is just jumping on the bandwagon.
