Feature and Follow Friday #2


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

This week's question is:

Best Cover? What is the best cover of a book that you’ve read and didn’t like?


Answer: The one book that immediately came to my mind when I read the question is Lauren Kate's Fallen. The covers of the all the four books in the series are simply beautiful, but the books in themselves... They're not all THAT bad, but they're not all that great either. I had a hard time getting through them all. As much as I love angels, the Fallen series is just not there, for me at least. Nevertheless, the covers are absolutely beautiful, and I'm sharing all four covers here!






I'd like to know your Follow Friday! And yes, we'll follow back. :)
Happy Friday everyone!

  1. For me, this series has just been really boring and I felt like I was slogging through the whole thing. Old Follower. It's sad that they have such great covers.

  9. Yeah I heard mixed things about these books. The covers are gorgeous, but apparently the book wasn't up to everyone's expectations so I avoided it. Do like Darkness before Dawn--still have to read it, same cover designer yet hoping the book inside is just as good!

    Thanks for visiting and following my blog! I follow you now too!


    Have a GREAT weekend!

  11. Read all of them. In retrospect, why? I think the cover fairy must have enchanted me. So nice to meet book bloggers from India :) Thanks for the follow, following right back!

  13. I keep debating on reading this series. I want to read them because they seem like something I would like, but I hear such awful things about them.

  15. The covers for this series are beautiful! I've heard mixed reviews on the books though, some people love them and a lot of people don't. I'm not sure whether to give them a try or not. Great pick for this week though. New follower GFC!

  16. I'm glad you picked Fallen too, I always see so many people raving about it and I'm like am I the only one who didn't like this? *sigh* those covers are so gorgeous! I just wish the story had been better.

  17. Thanks for visiting my FF. Quite a few people mentioned this book or series this week. I haven't read the series and even though most people are saying it's not horrible, just so-so, it doesn't seem worth reading a mediocre series. I mean that's over 1000 pages of blah. I've tried the first book and just can't get past the first few chapters.

  18. I agree, all four books are stunning. I have seen Fallen a few times tonight, which kind of surprised me. I'll have to get around to reading sometime soon so I can see what I think of it.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, returning the favour. :)

  19. I've read the first book of this series and I thought it was alright. I'm thinking about picking up the rest of the series. I'm not sure though because it seems that most people don't like it! I really LOVE the covers. My favorite cover is Torment's cover. :D

  23. I am a new follower, following you back. Thanks for stopping by my post. As you know, I did Alison's question, of cover and book i LOVED, not disliked. But sorry to see you din't like the Fallen Series, I absolutly LOVED them, especially getting that extra taste with the more details in a past life with Fallen In Love, in some ways it was one of my favorites. But really loved Rapture, its one of those stories to me, that have to be taken is as a whole, as its just one really long story. Too bad you didn't like. Sorry about that.
    Have a great day. Thanks for the follow again. :)

  26. Brilliant answer! I feel exactly the same way about the Fallen series. The covers are all gorgeous, but the actual stories themselves...meh. Unfortunately, I received all four books for review but only read the first then gave up because they were so bland.

    Anyway, new GFC follower of your lovely site! You have no idea how much I'd appreciate a follow back at www.bookedupbloggers.blogspot.com

  27. The Fallen series is one that I didn't love but I didn't dislike either. It was middle of the road for me but did continuously get better with each book written (IMO). :)
