Feature & Follow #3

The Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, it’s a great way to gain new followers and make new friends.

Q: Worst cover? What is the worst cover of a book that you’ve read and loved?

This question is actually pretty hard. All the books I’ve read and loved have pretty great covers. And I swear I didn’t read them because of the cover. Not most of them at least. But if I had to choose one I would have to go with  the cover of  Take This Regret by A.L. Jackson, because let’s face it, it’s not the prettiest cover out there. It really isn’t the worst either, it’s actually pretty decent (I’ve really seen worse lol), but it doesn’t particularly scream “read me! read me!” like some covers do, at least not to me. Yet, the book is really good. I still need to get my review up on the blog, but trust me, it’s a really good book. One of those emotional-rollercoaster kind of books.

Tell me your worst cover! Share your F&F in the comments bellow and I’ll make sure to check it out!

  1. I get what you are saying a girl in a field doesn’t really tell you what the book is about or makes me want to read it at all. Will be sure to check out your review of it. New Linky Follower Here is My FF

  4. new follower through email. my response was…the Stephanie Plum series covers. I truly love the books, but could do without the colorful jackets. Course, since I own every book in the series and I love them all, the jackets are acceptable by associated love for the books. Visit / follow me at: bethartfromtheheart.blogspot.com . Have a great weekend!

  5. I like that cover, but I’ve seen far too many similar covers with similar fonts that it doesn’t really stand out to me. Thanks for stopping by! Will follow back!

    Why!!! does everyone use that font for titles?! It’s called “Angelic War”, a rather nice font but I sometimes use it as well, and probably because of that I’ve always associated an amateur feeling with it >_< It's a nice pick for this week's theme….very erm, monotone 😄

    You've got such a lovely blog, and I LOOOOVE your rating system! SO cute *o*

  20. The font is kind of overwhelming the image. I’m glad to hear that the book is really good, though.
