Feature and Follow #5


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

A: I realized that I haven't read a book with a VERY bad cover, or worst, as the question put it. They're always either gorgeous or do-not-reflects-the-story-or-character/s. So now, I'm going to show you some books I read (and loved) with covers who I didn't much understood, liked or do-not-reflect-the-character/s.


Perfect Chemistry.
Sorry if you don't agree with me, but I just couldn't find Alex 'hot' and Brittany 'perfect' in this cover. 

I saw the video trailer (of Rules of Attraction and Chain Reaction) though, and find Alex otherwise.

I liked the cover of the next two books, however. Especially Rules of Attraction. It makes me sigh.













My Fair Godmother.
I like the color, design and the idea. I just don't get why the fairy--Chrysanthemum Everstar, who have a fab name--looked act like her. The girl on this cover's like, raise the wand like this and freeze for a sec and then we're done. And I'm like, lemme do that instead and I'll smile. It's fun to be a fairy, afterall!

What I meant is, there's no emotion. But then again, Chrissy appeared to be always bored whenever she talks to her 'boss' to grant their wishes.

Check out My Unfair Godmother, the companion book cover.
Same. No emotion.


Thoughtless.
I must say that this one's poorly done. The book has so MUCH to say than to have a couple in the cover, holding hands, with a purple background.

  3. The first one has potential to be good I think, but yeah, something is just a little offsetting about it.

  9. I see your point there, and I agree. x) I haven't read any of these books yet, but without seeing the summary, however, I don't think I'll buy them. :P

  10. Thanks for stopping by my #FF! I'm following you now too. I loved Perfect Chemistry, the cover doesn't bother me but I agree it could be better and I LOVE the cover for Rules of Attraction! I haven't read My Fair Godmother or Thoughtless but I definitely agree with you on the covers.

    Happy Friday :)

  13. Totally agree with you about all of these covers, especially Thoughtless. That cover looks like it needed a bit more effort put into it.

  14. new follower through GFC as lucyatmax/no pix. I agree with what you've selected...I chose the Stephanie Plum series...colorful, but not appealing. I can be found at: bethartfromtheheart.blogspot.com and would appreciate a visit/follow.
    Enjoy your weekend!

  19. OMG! I agree with you. I thought I was the only one who hated the "Perfect Chemistry's cover". I love the book but the cover...um...not cool at all. :)

    P.S. Love the Song! <3

  20. I should really check out the Perfect Chemistry books. They seem like good books. I don't like the cover for this one much either.
