Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. I'm looking forward to meeting new people and visiting everyone else's blogs. This hop is so much fun!
This week's question is:
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.
Um, guilty! I've done this a few times but the one book that totally comes to mind is this one:
I know! I'm crazy, right? I received a free copy of Vampire Academy in August 2008 when I went to a Breaking Dawn launch party (yes, I was a 17-year-old in love with Twilight). Straight up, I didn't like the cover so it sat on my bookshelf and gathered dust until November 2008. I began reading it because I needed some downtime from studying for exams (I still didn't think I would enjoy it) and, surprisingly, I didn't put it down until I finished it--it was THAT good!
I think the covers got better as the series progressed but I still don't like the cover for Vampire Academy. This series really needs to have the covers re-done, me thinks. I'm so glad I gave VA a chance though. It's definitely one of my favourite Young Adult series ever!
On a somewhat related note, I discovered this awesome poster a fan made for a potential VA movie. Love it!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
