Follow Friday--Horrible 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! 

Go to Alison Can Read for the featured blogger!


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


As a teenager I read a lot of Jack Weyland. For those who don't know, he's an LDS romance author. I haven't read him in years but lots of LDS high school girls like his stuff. His most famous novel is called Charly, and it's actually a very good--if also very tragic--book. To this day I still love the story. The cover, not so much. I had this book cover in my parents' house for twenty years and I think my sister still has it. I always thought it was creepy. Chick WAY too close for comfort; eighties hair; one eye bigger than the other... 

*cringes* "Stop staring at me!"

How about you? What cover makes you cringe?

  7. Ha! I remember reading Charly when I was 13. Funny thing, I didn't remember it being so creepy back then. But yeah, she's totally weirding me out now.
