Feature & Follow Friday (11)


Feature & Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and
Alison Can Read. It's a great way to meet other book bloggers!

This week's question is:
Worst cover? What is the worst cover of a book that you've read and loved?

It's not the worst cover ever, but it really doesn't do justice to how amazing the book (and the series) is. And if that's supposed to be Adrian on the cover with Sydney, why is only half of his face showing? Seriously? You do not put half of Adrian Ivashkov's face on a book cover!

If you're a new follower, be sure to let us know so that we can follow you back. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I have no problem with Sydney, but if Adrian had gotten the whole cover to himself, well . . . I wouldn't have minded at all, lol! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Yes! Totally agree! I hate the choice for Adrian on this one and why the heck wan't he featured more! I think the cover to the third book in this series is even worse! ;)
    Thanks for stopping by, my lovelies!
    Happy Friday!

    1. When I first saw the cover for The Indigo Spell, all I could think was, who is this new guy and why is he taking up valuable space that clearly should have been given to Adrian? Of course, this won't keep me from reading the book, lol.

  3. YES! I can't believe I forgot about this book! Boy was I disappointed when I saw the cover of this one... that's definitely not how I pictured either character.

    1. I didn't picture the characters like this, either. The cover is rather disappointing compared to how awesome the book is.

  4. I agree! Haven't started on the Bloodlines series yet, but I'm certainly not being encouraged by this cover, haha. :) New follower!

    1. I love the series, but the book covers . . . not so much. The books are fantastic, so this is definitely a case in which the book shouldn't be judged by the cover.

  5. I am not a fan of this girl either. She looks so haughty compared to "rose" of VA.

    1. Yeah, this isn't how I pictured Sydney. I wasn't too crazy over the VA covers, either, but I did think that they got better as the series went along.

  12. Heey
    The cover does look a bit...weird. Maybe because I didn't read the book, but yes, why only put half a guy's face on the cover?

    1. It's a great series, and you should definitely read it. Have you read the Vampire Academy books yet? Bloodlines is the spin-off, and I recommend reading VA first (loved that series, too).

    1. Exactly! The book is SO good, yet the cover is kind of underwhelming.

    1. I love the Bloodlines series and wish that the covers did a better job of conveying how great the books are.

  16. Closely cropped faces seem to equal 'dark and mysterious' now -- I feel like I've seen a slew of covers with only half a face on them. If you're going to advertise man-candy, go the whole way, right?

    1. Adrian is definitely man-candy, lol. He and his ego would not approve of the cropping that was done for this cover.

    1. Agreed- I kept putting off reading Vampire Academy because the cover didn't do anything for me. Big mistake on my part because I ended up loving that series.

  19. I'm not a huge fan of faces on the cover, but I quite like these. Not my favorites, but certainly not the worst I've ever seen.

    1. Bloodlines is one of my favorite books but not one of my favorite covers. It doesn't quite match how great the book is.

      Thanks for dropping by! I hope that your Internet problems have been fixed. I once lost my connection for over a week, and it was beyond inconvenient, to say the least.
