Feature and Follow #13

Feature & Follow is a weekly meme hosted by, Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Each week, each host will have their own Feature Blog which allows them to show off more new blogs! It is a fun way to keep in touch with fellow bloggers, meet new bloggers and gain new followers. 
This Week's Question
What is the worst cover of a book that you’ve read and loved?
Answer:  I hope Cheree won't kill me for this but when I first saw the cover for Shadows, her book which she requested that we review, I was so tempted to say NO. Good thing I got over that because I totally ended up enjoying this fantasy fairy-tale book and I am excited for book 2 to come out. 
Now I did tell Cheree that the original cover doesn't do justice to her story, not that it was bad but the one below looks like a dreamscape kind of art that might not get the response she wants for her book. Happy to report that the cover art has now been updated and this has been archived.

  1. Oh I will have to check out this book. I have to admit that cover doesn't make me want to read it either. But it is great that the content is worth it. Happy Friday Braine!

  2. Hi,
    Thanks for visiting and following me. I'm following you back on Linky.

    I think a lot of judging a book by the cover- at least for me- is the time factor. I can't read the summary of every book that comes out. So unless I've heard of the book or author, I must admit that if a cover doesn't appeal to me, I mentally file it in a "Do Not Read" drawer in my mind. Until I read a few positive reviews.

  3. not a great come and read me cover. the blurb would have to be awesome for me to read it.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my FF ! I'm definitely going to check out this book soon! :D

  5. o.O I haven't heard of this book. The cover... *sigh* I'm not gonna go there.. But I'm glad you enjoyed it :) I might and that's a big MIGHT, pick this up somewhere down the road...

  6. I love Faerie books, but they always seem to have the worst covers! Hopefully mine will be the exception when it finally gets released, though, I'd probably end up with another girl in a prom dress looking lost in the woods, yeesh! ;)
    Thanks for stopping by, my sweetlings! Happy Friday!

    1. Why do I always ramble so much in your comments section? It's like every week I'm . . . Oops, I did it again, didn't I? ;)

    2. You are soooo welcome to do that! We love ramblers!

    3. Oh yay! Cause I have that s**t down! ;)
      Have a great weekend guys!

  7. The cover is not one of the best! I probably would have skipped it but now I will check it out! Old follower!

  8. The cover's a bit boring if I may say but glad that you liked the story! Thanks for dropping by my ff! :D


  9. The cover looks like there wasn't much time or effort put into it. Based on the cover alone, I would probably not give this book any thought.

    Thanks for stopping by my FF. New follower. :)

  10. I probably wouldn't have picked up this book either based on that cover. I'm glad to hear that the cover art has been updated, and that you enjoyed reading the book.

    Old follower. Thanks for stopping by!

  11. can't say I'm a fan either, glad you liked the book though! Old follower ^__^

    Scarlett @ Books Before Bed!

  12. Hmmm, not a good cover, nope. Lucky it turned out ok though!!

  13. There is not much that stands out. I'm glad that there is a better cover! New Follower.

    Sydney @ Starry Storm

  14. Not the most horrible cover, but definitely not "grab-your-attention" worthy.. *new follower*

    Here's my FF @ Realms of an Open Mind

  15. A bit odd, but interesting - the cover would likely make me want to at least check out the blurb.

    New follower . . . thanks for stopping by.

  16. Not liking this cover at all-there's nothing that would draw me to the book ! Thanks for stopping by and following my blog! Old Follower!

  17. Happy Friday! I kind of like the background but then the center subject just ruins it. Thanks for stopping by, following back.

  18. Good thing she updated the cover then, because that ones is kind of like yikes! lol
    Thanks for stopping by my FF. I'm following you via GFC! :)

  19. Actually, I think I like the cover you have up here better than the new that for 'Shadows' on Amazon! Funny how each person can have such a different reaction to a cover... that's part of what makes designing it so hard!

  20. Totally see what you mean! That cover just does not scream fairy tale! :D Thanks for following. Already following you! Happy Friday! :D

  21. Aww, that's not such a bad cover!

    Here's my Follow Friday post.

  22. oh wow it does look kind of scary though, but the bad cover things happens a lot of indie authors I think. I tend to be more understanding about that, but if they happen to well-established authors, then that just makes me cringe! Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend, Braine!

    Ning @ Reading by Kindle Fire

  23. I guess it just goes to show that we should not judge books by their covers? hah
    thanks for sharing and thanks for stopping by!
    looking forward to reading more from this blog! :D

    have a wonderful weekend, Braine.


  24. That one definitely is a bad cover!

    Here's my Follow Friday

  25. I understand what you mean here. The cover's not exactly very appealing in a way that it'll catch your eye when you're browsing in a bookstore. :P At least the cover art has been changed already. =))

  30. That original cover isn't too fabulous, but if the story is as good as you say it is than I'm glad there is a new one. I'll have to add this to my wishlist! Old follower.

    Jennifer @ Feminist Fairytale Reviews

  31. The new cover does look a lot better. I like drawn covers. I miss them. So many photographs these days!
