Feature and Follow Friday--Best Covers


Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it'll allow us to show off more new blogs! 

How does this work? First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools -- keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them "hi" in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you! 

Hop over to Alison Can Read to see the feature!


Q: Best cover? What is the best cover of a book that you've read and loved?


The first one that comes to mind that I've read lately is Grave Mercy. This book was a mix of historical fiction and fantasy. I thought it was great! An easy read and a beautiful cover! I would highly recommend it! Why you ask? Many reasons! But I'll give you two words: Assassin nuns. Yup, that's right. I told you this book was awesome, didn't I?

So that's my best historical cover. Hop over to my other blog to see what my best fantasy cover pick was!

What's your best cover?

Random Movie Quotes (RMQ)
Don't know what this is? Click here.

I don't generally do these on Friday, but I've been a slacker this week, so I'm adding one to my Friday meme. Yesterday's RMQ was:

"The gods envy us. They envy us because we're mortal, because any moment might be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we're doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now, and we will never be here again..."

No one guessed it. This line was said by Brad Pitt (as Achilles) in the wonderful film, Troy. This film was underrated, but I thought it was one of the best representations of the Iliad ever put on the big screen. If you like Greek stuff and haven't see it, NETFLIX PEOPLE!

Anyway, on to today's RMQ:


"I have seen the face of war before,sir, but I've never seen war made upon women and children...and almost as cruel as your indifference..."

Okay, three points possible for this one. One for the actor, one for the character, one for the film. Any guesses?

  5. Grave Mercy is a great cover, love the model and the dress! Plus it's pretty cool that she is carrying a crossbow..AWESOME.

    I DON'T KNOW WHERE THE QUOTE IS FROM AND I LOVE MOVIES D: I just thuoght of 'War Horse' possibly? I have a feeling it's said by someone quite young. I DON'T KNOW GAH.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! New follower right here.

    1. Thanks for following back! And Warhorse is a great guess, but not quite right. The time period is actually...well similar, not exact, but it's a period piece like that. Thanks so much for guessing! :D I'll post the answer on Monday!
