Two posts in one day! Aren’t you all so lucky…
I have fallen off the track of writing about what I read in this blog so I decided to join this Feature and Follow from Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. I found out about the FF by reading A Midsummer Night’s Read. Each week the two bloggers host a Feature and Follow all in the righteous effort to gain more followers for everyone and to exposed to more and more delicious reads! So without further ado… my first Feature and Follow post:
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.
This could be a popular choice or a much contested choice but it was the first one that came to mind for me! I read Hunger Games when it was first published and only because a friend convinced me because she knew I loved dystopian and I loved YA. At first glance, the cover is boring, dark, and lacks any real illustration that outlines the story inside. So I was pretty skeptical. The wonderful thing about this cover is it is one of those covers that makes you think. Once you finish The Hunger Games and take time to wonder why the cover is what it is, you realize that it is dark, and empty, and a little depressing for a reason. You realize that the strange gold bird on the cover is a Mockingjay and that it becomes the symbol of the trilogy. That is the beauty of this deceiving cover: it is not until you delve into the book and reflect that you realize the reasons behind the illustration.
There you have it! My first Feature and Follow. Quick and painless. Be sure to follow the hosts at Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. And don’t forget to read all of the other entries from the other wonderful bloggers!
