Happy Friday!! (26)

Happy Friday everyone!! I had a pretty craptastic week so I am excited for a nice relaxing weekend!

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee's View.

Q: 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.


I must have seen the Outlander books a hundred times at the library.  Every time I would see it on the shelf I would pick it up and think, 'Hmm...no way' and move on to something else.  The cover did absolutely nothing for me.  I honestly don't think I ever would have read it if my aunt hadn't raved about the series.  I must say that I was completing misjudging the book because I absolutely loved Outlander and the subsequent books in the series. 

What cover turned you off initially?

  1. I don't mind the cover too much, but so glad you picked it up anyway and enjoyed it.

  2. OOh yeah!! Kinda hate how plain this one is. I've heard nothing but wonderful things about it though, and hopefully will be getting it on my Kindle soon (I've also heard the book is pretty lengthy. :P)

  5. That is an exceptionally boring cover. I only read this because someone loaned it to me so I never thought much about the cover.

  7. Hmmmmm bit bland the marketing. Glad everybody seems to have good things to say about the story within...but hmmmm, not very engaging to the eye:D

    new follower, hey!!

  8. Hi, Denise! I'm a new follower (via twitter). I have to say - I actually have Outlander sitting on my bedside table and the cover is just about as dull and boring as a cover could possibly be. Unfortunately, I just can't get into the story, either! I'm going to give it another shot soon, though, because a lot of people have really enjoyed it - I must be missing something!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, and I hope you have a great weekend!
