Feature and Follow Friday [8]


Feature and Follow Friday is a meme hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read. This meme is a great way to meet new bloggers, and to likewise know more about them. Follow me and I'll be sure to follow you back!


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


This cover is horrible. Absolutely horrible. Rich Boys (to be honest, I really don't like the title either), while indeed about romance, also tackles a myriad of other topics, and this cover definitely makes the book seem... shallow, for the lack of a better word.

  1. Agreed! One look at that cover and I wouldn't even bother picking it up! Looks like a sleasy summer read. New follower via GFC. Happy Friday!

  2. You're right. It does make it look shallow. Too bad.

  4. What? With those abs on the cover I'll go for it! LOL I'm just kidding. :) The name of the book isn't particularly helpful either, I agree.

  5. Yeah the title and cover lead you to believe it's about something else entirely! Glad that wasn't the case!

  7. I really just don't get the ab covers at all. They turn me off to a book. Great pick.

  9. Headless, shirtless boys! LoL I wouldn't pick this one up based on the cover, but I'm glad to hear it's not as shallow as it appears.

    Thanks for following! I followed back :)

  10. The abs are nice (in general, not as a cover)BUT the cover and title are totally off-putting.

    My follow friday. Please visit!

  11. No better word needed :) That's exactly what came to my mind when I saw the cover! I'd never assue there was a deeper story behind two cute guys in surfer outfits :)
    But I have to agree with Cassi Haggard - the abs are nice indeed :)
    I'm an old follower and in case you want to see my FF post, it's here:

  12. I agree. I don't like the cover either. New follower!

  13. I saw this cover and kind of hoped it was about a serial killer that decapitates people (which would explain the cropping). Ah well! Great choice.

    Returning your follow -- thanks for stopping by my blog as well :)
