Feature & Follow Friday

Feature & Follow is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Parajunkee and Alison Can Read in which we book bloggers get to know each other a bit better and increase the number of our friends followers.

This week's question asks:

Worst cover? What is the worst cover a book that you've read and loved?

Welllll, it's not really a bad cover, it's just really kinda plain and generic ~ not saying much about the content of the book. It's actually a trilogy, but I'll go with book one ~ Torn by Amanda Hocking. I read this book back when she was still unknown, promoting her book for a whopping $0.99 on Amazon. I think the fact that it was under a buck caught my eye first, then the synopsis, then the ratings ~ one thing's for sure...it wasn't the cover.

Comparison ~ Then & Now

I loved this series ~ it prompted me to read the rest of Amanda's books, creating an avid fan. The new cover rocks, too. If you haven't read it, what the heck are you waiting for?

Today's the last day to enter the giveaway for Such a Rush by Jennifer Echols. Enter here! Just thought I'd throw that out there ;).

Happy Reading Everyone :)

  1. Aw, they both look pretty to me. :) the second one is better, though.

    I'm a new gfc follower, would you please follow back? :)

  2. Yeah, I'm with you. I don't mind this cover but it certainly doesn't give you any inkling of what the book might be about. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Happy Friday! :D

  3. I kinda liked all of Amanda Hockings original covers. The new ones are better, BUT i respect her because she did all of them herself.

  11. I haven't read this series yet, I probably should, seeing as it's about Faerie and all!
    The new cover is certainly better than the first!

  12. I still have to read this series but I'm definitely looking forward to it! I definitely like the updated cover better. I've heard amazing things about Amanda's novels. I really want to pick up a copy of Wake. :)
