Feature & Follow (4)

Posted by Charlene // Tags: ,
Feature & Follow is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read. The purpose is to meet  people and gain more  followers in the book blogging community.

Q: Best cover?  What is the best cover of a book that you've read and didn't like?

On Parajunkee this is the question, so I'll do both and have all bases covered! This is a really hard one for me! I suppose most of the books I didn't like, also didn't really have great covers.  But for now I'll say Jane by Marielena Zuniga.  It's a really pretty, aesthetically pleasing cover - and the desolate landscape evokes the moors for the Jane Eyre reference.  The book itself included too many verbatim passages from Jane Eyre to really make it standout as it's own book and so I was disappointed by that.






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

On Alison Can Read this is the question - so I pick Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson (I'm mainly sticking to recent reads for this)  Lovely Regency read, so a girl in a period dress, and a stately manor is perfect!  And I love the font for Edenbrooke as well!

  2. I haven't read either of these, but I agree they're both very pretty. I'm especially loving the one for Edenbrooke. Both the manor and the historic dress pull me in. I'll have to look into these now!
