Feature and Follow #14: Best Cover Bad Story


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 best cover of a book that you’ve read and didn’t like?


Answer: Lauren Kate's Fallen is one of the first book that started the trend of girls wearing ball gowns but with a Gothic feel to it. I LOVED this trend, I found it very attractive and like most of you, I was weak and picked up the series because of the catchy title and cover. 
Unfortunately the story wasn't up to my liking, I didn't find Luce a strong heroine and the love triangle was weak and truly annoying.

  2. I still haven't read this and have been taking my time getting around to it because of some mixed reviews. My cousins said that the first book wasn't bad, but they weren't too crazy about the series after that.

  3. That is a great cover, too bad about the story! I also have a weakness for those covers with girls in gorgeous dresses on them. They usually don't have anything to do with the story, but they look pretty!

  4. I love the covers for the entire series- still need to read the last book though before I make a decision on how much I really like the series as a whole! Old GFC Follower but new Networked Blogs follower!

  5. I've been trying to decide if I want to read this or not. I keep hearing such mixed things about it that I can't decide.

    1. It's not my place to say, but I'd advise you to not read it. Trust me. Spare yourself the pain, and don't get lured in by the cover. It's like Twilight, except...
      Worse. But if you like Twilight, yay!

    2. Hahahaha @Snugglemybooks. Luce is as annoying as Bella and Cam is obviously the better choice than Daniel.

  7. This was a DNF of mine. I couldn't get into the story at all, but I will admit, one of the reasons I picked the book up was because of the pretty cover. I hate when they mislead me!!

  9. YES! 'Fallen' has an amazing cover! When I saw this at my friends house I was immediately drawn to it. Though she wouldn't let me borrow it because she was currently reading the book.

  10. I kind of keep repeating this answer, but it is true for this series. I loved the cover, read the summary, bought the book. Then I started the book and could never get past the first chapter or two. It wasn't awful, but it didn't grab me and make me want to read it. And considering that it's a series and that I tend to force myself to finish series if I finish the first books...I just couldn't make myself finish the book. And then feel obligated to read a series I may be lukewarm about.

    Thanks for visiting my FF. Following you through GFC.

  11. Haha! I remember Fallen! Such a complicated read for me. But Boy do I love their covers! They are stunning! :)

  12. I keep on seeing Fallen during this week's Follow... I guess the book really is that bad despite the gorgeous cover. *sigh*

  15. Ugh. Such a shame. Luce was Bella's long-lost sister, I'm sure of it.

  26. I actually got this book from the used book store but haven't read it yet. I came into the YA scene late so I saw a lot of the ball gown covers. At first they were impressive but now I'm just like same old same old. I might read this book eventually.

  27. If I did FF this week I would have picked this too. I loved that cover. I am a sucker for these kinda covers. Plus so many people where saying how good it was. But man I just did not at all like this story. I didn't even bother to read any of the other books. Just was not my thing. But I still love the cover.

  31. I loved the cover to this book as well.. it was actually this book that got me back into reading in 2010 >.< *sigh* definitely false advertisement -_- lol

    ReplyDelete
  32. Fallen got me too! I remember seeing it at the store and was like "Oh wow this looks great!" it was my first DNF that year..lolz..
    IDK why I could NOT get into it. It reminded me of a movie (I think it had the SAME name)starring Stefan from The Vampire Diaries.
    I swear it was nearly identical.
    I liked the movie better.
    Have a great weekend <3

  35. Oh my gosh YES. The cover of Fallen is definitely what made me want to read it, but the actual story was just....no. I couldn't even bring myself to pick up the sequel!

  36. I love the Fallen cover. I did enjoy the book as well! I hate to say "it gets better as it goes along" but that's the truth. I understand you not continuing the read though. :)
