Feature & Follow Blog Hop (21)

This is a weekly event hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read to help us bloggers venture out & find other blogs that we might not have come across. Each week there are 2 feature bloggers, you can find their information on either of the sites listed above. There is a new question up each week and this weeks question is -  



Q: Have you ever looked at book's cover and thought, This is going to horrible? But, was instead pleasantly surprised? Show us the cover and tell us about the book.


SoOoOo you guys probably know that I'm a cover whore right?! Well if you didn't...you do now! I always fall for the covers... But before I read a book I do my research on it and make sure that I'm at least going to enjoy it. That always doesn't work out but majority of the time it does. Here are a couple of covers of books that I loved but the covers aren't the best. (Note: The books listed here I have, with the exception of The Other Life, in the cover that I do like) So here are the covers that I didn't like that much but really enjoy the book itself.

                     

What about you guys? Leave me a link so I can come check them out and comment back =) Have a great weekend!!!

  3. The cover of Hate List always intrigues me and I actually like the other cover of Under the Never Sky more. As for The Other Life, I think it's the best out of all the three.

    Here's my first ever FF!

  7. Oh, I love the US cover of Under The Never Sky, I think it's simply gorgeous. But, I'm not crazy about this UK cover. Poor darlings. lol. The Other Life, was an amazing read, I was lucky enough to read an ARC for review. The review will be posted on the blog soon, so be on the watch out for that. This is a fantastic post! :)

  8. Good picks! I think that version of Never Sky sucks. The guy is out of proportion and really creeps me out. The hardcover version is really beautiful though, and the book was great! New follower here :)

  10. That cover of Hate List is terrible. I'm not fond of that version of Under The Never Sky. I'm not sure about the cover for The Other Life since I haven't read the synopsis. Thanks for sharing.
