Feature and Follow

Here's my second blog hop. 

Q: Best Cover? What is the best cover of a book that you’ve read and didn’t like?

I know a lot of people really fell for this cover.  It's got great style, a unifying color theme, and a girl in a pretty dress.  (Ok, actually, why was I attracted to this cover anyway?) 

Not to offend anyone who enjoyed the book, because I know there are plenty of you, it just wasn't my cup of cappuccino.  I felt like there was not enough happening in this book.  Too many chapters went by where I felt like nothing was progressing.  I also didn't feel like the main character was very well developed.  And it was a blatant rip off of Twilight.  Ok, other than that, it wasn't too bad.  But not as good as its cover suggested.


  1. I'm a little over the pretty dress theme myself. I do love all the pretty swirls on the cover though.

  2. The cover is really pretty. I'm still a sucker for the girl in a dress theme (its like window shopping but with book covers) but I haven't read the story so I don't know how it compares. I'll take your word though that it doesn't live up to its prettiness!

    I haven't read a best cover/disappointing story as yet, best for best would be Lauren DeStefano's Wither imho.
    Have a nice weekend!
